I’ve been married for 2 weeks now, and I am just really curious to know how we, errr… compare I guess 🙂 My friends don’t engage in much locker room talk, but I am all about it, so anyone who is willing to share please do! Also curious to know if the frequency changed after marriage… we waited til marriage so obviously our answer is oh heck yeah!
If I am way out of line posting this, someone please PM me and tactfully let me know… I do not mean to offend in any way.
I expected that we would have sex daily, especially I assumed we would have sex when we went to bed at night, but so far it’s been less frequent and more of an afternoon/after work occurence. And of course, after 21 months of couplehood without sex, I’m sure it will take a little more than 2 weeks for us to totally adapt to the fact that we’re married!

i voted 5-7+ because thats whats happening but to be honest – my hormones have been ranging for a few months now and its all my doing. my poor hubby – dinner sat on the table getting cold last night because i had other ideas
i will say we went thru a time last year we we didnt have sex for over 6months (work schedules, uni ect drove us both crazy) and although i was very concerned about it, from a female point of view i worried if he was still attracted to me, we talked about it so there were no hurt feelings. to be honest, once we made the decision to make the effort it became less of a chore and more of a enjoyable habit

Haha, we don’t do it every day, but we’ve been together for nearly 5 years and sexually active for about 4. So even though we thoroughly enjoy it, the “omgIwantyourightnow” has calmed down since we first started having sex… and instead of a quickie or two a day, it’s more like a long session a couple times a week and I think while both have their yummy points, I prefer where we are now.. marathons are really nice! 🙂 We love it, keep each other very satisfied and we still find each other irresistable, but we’re just to another point in our relationship now and this is what works for us. 🙂

I voted less than once a month of course bc he’s so far away. It really depends in our lives but we vary so much. We are still trying to figure out sex with my medical condition (it doesn’t always cooperate) but we seem to enjoy some intimacy about every other night unless someones sick or just exhausted. Even so we tend to sleep better if thats the case! Ha!

I dont think you are out of line posting this – the subject line gives plenty of warning to whats in here. 🙂
I’m in the 3-4 range. We are both always fully satisfied after… but sometimes I take a little convincing to be in the mood. Since we aren’t planning on kids for a while, I’m looking into switching to a non hormonal IUD with the (hopeful) beneficial side effect of no longer supressing my “drive”.

I voted 5-7. We typically have sex every other night during the week, and then a few times on the weekend. We went for 6 or 7 months when we first met and had sex ever. single. day. We called it the Streak. It actually was good for us because even if we fought, neither of us wanted to break it, so we made sure we made up before the lights went out 😉 Life is just too busy to keep that up, but sex is a high priority for the both of us.
@mrsmike I wouldn’t worry about what is “normal.” The amount of sex you have is bound to fluxuate throughout your relationship. Quality is more important the quantity.

I voted less than once a week, only because FI is in Canada right now! But when we visit it’s like, three times a day :
I know that’s only because we’re so happy to see each other, but it’s a lot. His sex drive is higher than mine… I think it’s because I’m his first sex is still so exciting to him. He’s my… well, we won’t get into the number : ) But I’m at the point where I would be happier with sex a few times a week rather than a few times a day.

Whenever I see these polls, I often wonder how long you’ve been sexually active as well. My answer has definitely changed since we started having sex–then, it was easily four-five times a week, sometimes more, sometimes more than once a day. But that was six years ago! Now we have sex once or twice a week. I think it’s just an inevitable fact that the passion and drive does wear off after multiple years of having sex with the same person. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still great and satisfying, but there is not the lust-crazed “I have to have you right now” thing anymore.

We’re not married, we’ve been together over a year. We’ve hung around a 5-8 range unless aunt flo’s in town. In the beginning it was like 6-8 so not really much less.

We’re not married yet but we have been dating for 10yrs. We’ve never lacked in this area. When we 1st started which was about 8 months into dating we were well over 7+ times a week adn of curse we’ve tapered off. But we still get it in(sorry, LOL) about 4-5 times a week. The only time we went weeks w/o was when FH was in National Guard and he was away for drill.
