    Wow this is the first one of these polls with results I believe! Sometimes it seems like everyone responding says every day or multiple times/day which I find hard to believe for the majority of married couples who both work full-time (obviously there are exceptions!). We’ve always been a few times/week couple. Our lives have been crazy insane the past 6 months (PhD defense, moving across the country, wedding, quitting my job, unemployment, family deaths, lots of traveling, health issues, etc) so it’s decreased a little. I’d say we average 2-3 times/week on a normal uneventful week.

    We were having sex twice a week, and we were both happy with that amount. We’ve started TTC, and DH’s drive has gone wayyyy up. I guess he got used to having it more? I feel like he wants it all the time now! It’s more like 3-4 times a week now.

    1-2 times a week.  Definitely not enough (I’d like to aim for 3x/week, and he’d probably want it every day), but with our schedules as they are it’s hard to get that kind of time in.  We’re working on it.

    Before we were trying to conceive, 3 times a week. Now that we’re actively trying, we have sex 5 times a week, which works for me perfectly!

    @Gabthebee:  Right now, with our living arrangements, I’d just like to be able to have sex at all each week. We’ve had to go months without and it sucks. Ideally, it’d be about two or three times a week.

    I usually ranges from 1-3x per week. I’m happy with 2 or 3 but sometimes we’re busy so it’s 1

    It’s very interesting to me how the poll is falling with the majority on once a week or less, when I was under the impression that everybody other than me was having sex waaaaay more than that!!

    @MrsRevolutionize:  lol same. everyone commenting always says 3+ times/wk, so i was sort of surprised too although i know most married couples don’t have sex that often.

    Just so you know…

    Every couple is different there is no “norm”

    However, there are statistics on this

    And the Average is once a week for married folks …

    BUT that is an Average… so takes into account everyone from 18 to 108 years old !!

    Some folks get it on more than others obviously.

    Lots of things affect frequency over the course of one’s lifetime…

    Mood – Career – Kids – Newlywedism – Pregnancy – Health etc.

    I would like to 6+ times a week, Fiance would like to 3-4, Usually it’s about 4-5 times.
    Now that I’m 7 months pregnant it’s only like 1-2 times a week if I’m lucky. 🙁

    We were married for a month when we found out we were having a baby and we’d been having a lot of sex in that month–easily 7 or 8 times a week. That slowed down a lot as my pregnancy went on until we were having none. Then it didn’t pick back up again until our daughter was almost 6 months old. We’d tried a few times, but it was just not right yet. Things started to pick up though and now our kiddo is 1 and we are having sex recently like 5 or 6 times a week. I just have no idea if it’ll stay this way, so it’s hard to say how often we have sex. Judging by the last few weeks, we have sex a lot. Judging by the last few months, hardly at all!

    I’m lucky to get once a week. We have very different sex drives and he works 50+ hours a week so it’s all types of crazy. Ideally, I would be every other day at the very LEAST. Twice a day is definitely more my drive….

    We average 2-3x per week.  When we’re busy or if one of us isn’t feeling well, it can be less, if we’re feeling particularly amourous, it can be more 🙂 With starting to TTC, I expect it’ll increase.
