Lol I wouldn’t know, my closest experience to that is when SO came home from a 2mo trip but I’ll tell you that it’s probably a reasonable assumption that you will have far more sex than normal initially, and then settle into a comfortable rhythm (and have the regular cycles of increase/decrease as life goes on)

I do recommend occasionally taking a break and enjoying each other’s company outside of the room… you can only go for so long before you get tired and need to recoup and recover for the next round 🙂 And making googly eyes in a hot tub or over a meal is fun too! you’ll have a blast, get excited, and rush off again way more excited than if you just cuddled in bed alllllll day…

Just go with it…plan some fun activities throughout your honeymoon that will bring you out of the room and be memories for years to come. You can’t have sex all day, so I’m sure you will have time to do other fun things. Your fiancé is just excited, but I’m sure he will be up for other activities once he gets the first sexual experiences out of the way. No need to burst his bubble, just smile and mention that you’d like to create *other* memories as well.

@gapeach30518:  DH and I were TTC on our honeymoon (so having as much sex as possible). I think we did it twice on like 4 days, once on 4 days, and didn’t have sex at all on three of the days!

Also, bring a LOT of lube.

ETA: Though, when we first started having sex, we were doing it like 5-7 times a day, but that only lasted for two weekends. I’d plan your fun activities for the middle/end of your honeymoon more than the beginning!

Sex takes a lot of energy, so if you are sexually experienced you will know why frequent sex will be tiring albeit very enjoyable. Laughing

 This is why I always laugh when people think that they can literally make love ALL DAY or ALL NIGHT. At some point, a couple needs rest and nourishment to continue making love frequently in such a short span.
