How often...

What is the average time a couple has sex in a week? Me and the hubby were arguing over this, he says that 5 times a week is normal, I say more like 2-3 LOL

  • Honestly, it depends on the week here. Some weeks we are at it 15+ times a weeks. Other weeks, we are lucky if it happens once. We work alternate shifts and our daughter is getting a whole slew of teeth right now, so she is having a hard time sleeping. It is mostly dependent on her to be honest.

  • I don't know what is "normal" but me & hubby are at about 7x a week(just about every day, sometimes 2x a day but not everyday) except when the period comes(he would still like too but me....not so much, yuck!)

  • shoot.. me and my boyfriend maybe have sex like 3 or 4 times a month. After I had my baby...I just don't feel like having sex really.

  • 7x per week; holy cow!!! How do you even find the time or energy for 7x per week? WE are lucky if it's once per week. He's so tired from work and I'm exhausted from my son and working from home.

  • hell i'm lucky if i get it five times a month

  • it depends on my energy level. When hubby helps around the house he gets it more because I am not exhausted. When he does not help, he may get it once or twice a week.

  • I'm with Nichole, my and my bf only have sex a couple times a month. it is starting to be more often now, maybe 2 times a week, but that has just been the past couple weeks. I just don't feel like it, lol.

  • Well recently its been about 3-4 times a week, but really before that it was maybe 1-2 times a week, its hard because we have a 5 month old and we live with his mom so its all about timing

  • not often enough for either of us. not due to lack of interest or attraction, but due mostly due to my exhaustion and some hormonal things i am going through right now.
