dulcegozo:  To an extent?

I mean once you get used to having sex regularly (let’s say a minimum of once a week), it’s really frustrating if something changes that. But my sex drive isn’t really that different in a week we do it 6 times and for the following week versus a week we do it twice and the following week.

ETA: And when I lost my virginity my sex drive went way up, but I think that’s more a case of knowing what you’re missing.

I agree with this, but I think it depends on the individual.

When I’m single, I might joke about needing or wanting to have sex but I don’t crave it very often. When I’m in a relationship, I crave sex on a weekly, if not daily basis. I feel the more sex I have, the more I want it.

Eh, I do not find that is true for me.  My Fiance has a higher sex drive than I do.  I don’t feel the desire to have sex that often, but I know I enjoy it and crave the intimacy, so I have sex more often than I would if I just had it when I want it.  It doesn’t seem to change how often I desire it (shrug)

When my husband and I first started dating I had a significantly higher sex drive than him and wanted it, like, ALL THE TIME. He was still adjusting to the fact that it was okay for him to like sex again because he had just gotten out of a loveless marriage with NO sex. My sex drive tapered off and his grew and never died; it was kind of obnoxious how much he wanted to have sex. It wasn’t really until we started living together that my sex drive began to increase and now we’re about the same. We have sex about 3-4 times a week which I think is pretty healthy.

I think in new relationships it’s completely normal to have those strong desires for sure! Gee, I remember thinking and wanting sex nonstop when we first met. Things tend to normalize/even out after a while because, well, life and stuff.

dulcegozo:  Nah…not for me really. If I want it, I want. If I don’t…I don’t. There could be 2 hours, 2 days or 2 weeks inbetween depending on what I want lol.

True for me. When I go without after a few days I start to think “eh what was the big deal anyway, now I can get more sleep.” Then we start doing it again and I remember EXACTLY what the big deal was.

It’s true for me! I definitely desire sex more if I’m having it regularly. In the past if I was without a boyfriend for months, my sex drive mostly disappeared. Even now that I’m married if we go a couple weeks without sex, like when we got poison ivy!, I lose some drive and have to kind of kick start myself back into the habit. But it’s still within reason. It’s not like having sex multiple times a day is going to make me want to have it a dozen times a day!

True for me and my Fiance and probably most people, since having sex actually boosts testosterone levels in both men and women and higher testosterone levels lead to higher libidos!

I’d say definitely! If we don’t have sex for a couple of days I do think my sex drive goes down.

If you don’t use it, you lose it. That is what I have always heard. I do think there is some truth to it.
