I gotta admit my SO has a much higher sex drive than I do, so I oten will do it because it makes him happy, but I would really like to have less sex than I am! (He told me his ideal times would be “at least 2-3 times a day” – really? When can I get anything done?)
So it made me wonder about other couples!

My FI also has a higher sex drive than me. So we do it about 2-4 times a week. I do it because it makes him happy but like you I’d be fine with once a week or even every other week. FI says he always wants to have sex because I’m so sexy to him that I turn him on. That makes me feel good and its not that I’m not attracted to him sexually, its just that well I’m satisfied just cuddling.

FI and I have very similar sex drives, and I initiate a bit more often lol. I voted 3-5 times a week, but usually it’s 5-6, which I think is perfect.
But there’s a big difference between every day and 2+ times a day! I’m sure there are plenty of couples who do it about 9 times a week, once a day except on weekends 😉

Normally 1-2 times a week but now it’s like once a week or once every two weeks since I’m pregnant and really have no sex drive and am sleepy by 9pm every night
We still are very affectionate and have lots of physical contact and affection so I’m not bothered by it at the moment.

TMI, but usually every day. (Right now it’s 0 because he’s not at home.) DH is studying overseas right now, so when I went to visit him a couple of weeks ago, it was more like 2-3 times a day, but I doubt that will last when he gets home and we settle back into a busier schedule.
I’d say he has a higher sex drive than I do, but I try to accommodate him whenever he initiates, even if I’m not necessarily in ‘the mood.’ Usually in that case, a few minutes in I start to GET in the mood anyway, so I don’t mind.

I voted twice! 1-2 times a week and 3-5 times a week. It really depends on what’s happening. We both work different hours and he usually isn’t home until after I’ve gone to bed. Sometimes I wake up and we have sexy time but usually we leave it until the weekends. If either of us is on holiday then it’ll probably happen more that week.

Niether FI nor I have a very high sex drive and he’s super stressed out and working a lot of hours right now which makes his even lower. We both agree we should have sex more often, I voted a couple of times a month.

Less than once a month :/
We are living at my parents house and I think it’s creepy to do that while they are in the same house!
About 5 months until we move! LOL.

Normally it’s about 1-2 times a week. However, since I’ve gotten pregnant DH is too paranoid to have sex. That’s a-ok with me as I currently have ZERO sex drive and feel like a whale

For the second part of the poll, you don’t have an option for people who think it’s the right amount for them.

@NurseMandie: Oh my gosh I feel the EXACT same way. I think my SO is the sexiest man ever. I look at him and amazed at how someone so attractive is in love with ME! But I just don’t want to be doing it all the time!
@joya_aspera: Added! 🙂

@habibti: We do it 3-5 times a week on a good week. Some weeks (like if I’m on my period mostly)…not so much.
SO does have a higher sex drive. If we have already had sex once that day, or if I’m not feeling it, I’ll sometimes just give him an HJ and he’s fine with that lol.

@habibti: haha! we aim for at least once a week…sometimes it’s more..sometimes it’s less!!

My drive is higher, so I’d be ok with more! I voted 3-5. I have gotten used to earlier nights, though, so that’s the silver lining of his drive being lower than mine; more sleep!
