How many times a week is a good number to have sex?
COUPLES WHO HAVE SEX EVERY DAY
If you’re under 25 or in the first stages of your relationship, you’ll probably be banging away like screen doors in the wind. The positive side is that at this age you are usually always be horny and full of stamina. On the down side, you may be too young and mature to voyage through unlikely things that come up in your relationship, other than sex. But if you’re a long-term couple or older, the idea of daily sex will probably seem, well, unlikely. Life gets in the way and usually prevents most couple from doing it everyday, even me!
COUPLES WHO HAVE SEX THREE TO FOUR TIMES A WEEK
A recent study found the more sex people had, the happier they felt! Although that’s expected, it’s not always a given. Three to four times a week seems like the perfect amount for prime levels of happiness, according to most couples. If you don’t have children yet, are in good health, going through a great time in your relationship, highly sexed and highly motivated, this could be your magic number.
COUPLES WHO HAVE SEX ONCE A WEEK
Sadly enough, this reality is that this is the category most of us fit into. If forced to generalize about how often the ‘average’ couple have sex, once a week is probably the best estimate you’re going to get. It’s sound ridiculous to only do it once a week, but that is the norm now a days with everything going on in our lives. Couples who had sex four or more times a week weren’t any happier than those who did it weekly because it’s a realistic goal. It doesn’t put as much pressure on each other to do it all the time.
COUPLES WHO DON’T HAVE SEX – EVER
One in four couples over 50 don’t have any sex at all. There are people that are happy not having sex. It may sound impossible to be in a happy and healthy relationship without sex, but if both had an honest conversation and decided it’s simply not something you value any longer and it doesn’t appear to be a make it or break it factor, a happy relationship can still survive. This can also be the case for younger couples too, who both have low or no sexual drive, and are happy not to have it. This would not be me by any means, but different strokes for different folks.
No matter how many times you have sex a week, if it is agreed upon by both partners and you are equally happy with the amount of times and activity of your sex life, than that’s all that matter. Not the amount of times you do it, but that you are both satisfied with the same thing.
