Sex Question?

How often to moms and dads have sex? whats the norm? Seems like my husband and I go through phases where we go at it like bunnies then we only do it once a week if that for a few weeks...Its like a rollercoaster and I would rather be more consistent. Does anyone else expierence this?

  • Actually I think that is pretty common. There are so many factors like hormones, mensturation, how busy you each are, if the kids are sick, if the kids are in school or not, how much stress each of you has at work or in life, and so on and so on. There will be horny weeks & weeks you are too tired (or something).

  • We're the same way and I like it ...whenever we go through a spurt without much action it makes me look forward to the next "up" period...they always come back!

  • You're normal! My husband and I have ups and down too. After our first child was born, I didn't give him any for over 6 months. Then we went crazy and it was a daily part of our routine. 9 months later our second child was born (LOL) and my husband again didn't get sex for a few months. After our last child was born he got cut off again for about 7 months, but then we were back to having sex at least 3-4 times a week. We've tappered off some recently but it's usually about once a week or so.

  • yes, with kids and crazy schedules its easy for it to be hardly ever for a week, then all the time the next.
