    It changes up between intercourse and other “stuff”, but probably like 4-5 times a week. It used to be much more but with a baby in the picture I am just not up to it. It is something I have been trying to work on though.

    Encore Bride… and oldtimer here.

    A couple’s sex life will naturally ebb & flow… as does one’s own libido

    There will be times when you’ll have sex often… be that the “Honeymoon Stage” when you first meet… or at some other “nice” stage in your lives… Actual Honeymoon, TTC, Vacation or some sort of positive life changing event… lose weight, win the lotto etc

    As well some people have MORE sex when they are stressed (surprising but true)… so a death in the family, serious health issue / illness etc

    There is no right or wrong… you’ll find that the “equation” will change many many times over your lifetime

    BTW – The statistical average for a couple (that would include couples of ALL ages / social status… etc) is one time per week.  When you are in your 20s that probably sounds unbelievable… but it is the reality for many… things most definitely slow down the longer you are with someone… or if one has children etc.  Which is ONE of the reasons, that compatibility (getting along) and GOOD Communication is soooo important in picking a life partner… cause you have to have other things going on in your life than just having a lot of sex.  Sex doesn’t equal a relationship.

    EDIT TO ADD – Cady:  brings up another good point.  Sex / Having Sex… can mean sooo many more things than just intercourse / penetration.  That is very IMPORTANT to know / realize cause there are most certainly times in one’s life when having a much greater “repetoire” ensures that a couples keeps the magic going… spark alive… despite whatelse is happening in their lives.

    @Ninteenthchance:  I voted “other” because it changes.  I’ll go through periods of time during which I’ll want to have sex a lot (or what I consider to be a lot for me at this point) … So we might do it like 2-3 times a week.  Other times, I don’t want sex at all and we’ll go without anything for 2-3 weeks.  It really just depends.  I’m very lucky because my fiance goes along with how I’m feeling … I know all guys wouldn’t be okay with living together and going 2-3 weeks without sex (or any other sexual stuff for that matter).


    I’ve noticed a definite decline in my libido over the years, though.  When I was in my early 20s, I wanted sex all the time … It wasn’t unusual for me to have sex multiple times a day, every day for weeks on end.  Now I’m 28 (I’ll be 29 later this year), and I’m lucky if I want it once every other week.  It’s kind of depressing because nothing has changed (other than getting older).

    If my husband is home and not deployed, at least once a day.

    We’re currently on a once-per week routine. Usually Saturday or Sunday (always have an extra excuse to be excited for the weekend!) We both work later hours – me until 11pm, him until 2am. I’m usually gone to work by the time he gets out of bed, and I’m usually on my way to bed when he gets home.

    For us, this works. We’re both a little fluffy, so we don’t have overly high sex drives because of it. I do wish we could have sex a little more frequently, but I’m not unsatisfied with what we’ve got going on 🙂

    A couple times a month.

    It used to be more – usually every other day at the least, but our work schedules are conflicting most days, and some days we’re just way too tired!

    About 3 times a month. Work is really getting in the way at the moment, but neither of us have particularly high libidos anyway.
