Well, I can only speak for my self, and not talking about sexual development, but more physical and mental to some extent... I stopped being a child at 20 and possibly stopped being a teenager at 35, so maturity hit me at 40... What are we going to do with the late bloomers? I know I'm one...

Mentally, I think people get old when they stop listening and they start telling younger people that they "know" better because they have more experience. I think experience can be positive and negative at the same time... It gives a preview of what's to come and allows us to make "better" generalizations; however, this starts to be counterproductive when we dismiss evidence and facts because they contradict our experience and beliefs. There is no question that younger people can think faster... that doesn't mean better though. So that's an issue too.
Now, from the purely physical and skin-deep point of view, people start looking old at different ages too... Some people just have good genes when it comes to skin elasticity (lack of wrinkles), gray hairs, bolding, etc. which are the obvious signs of aging. Some people manage to cheat these signs in various ways... sometimes it's simply good genes, other times it's good makeup, other times it's a good plastic surgeon. Still, we should all be aware of the fortunes and misfortunes of being young or old. There are pros and cons for both, but maybe the biggest is posed by the media. If we judge by what we see in music videos, porn and movies, only young people would be having sex or enjoying their lives. Big big lie!

That depends solely on the woman. some women dont peak until their 30s physically.
