  • I think that is different for every couple and should be worked out between a hubby and wife.

    Some may need more, some may need less.

  • As often as THEY want. It will vary. There is no set answer.

  • I think it's different for every couple and what "season" you are in- right now my husband and I gave been very active, but a few months ago it was almost nonexsistent.

  • huggingJust ask dh how much sex is good to make him happy. I heard the other day that statistically, men have an avg of sex 56 times a year. That's a bit more than once a week. If that is enough for average men then it's good enough for someone tell me where those men are. I need some sex! lol

  • As much as is comfortable for them. I think weekly is the average. They important thing is they are honest about there disires and communicate.

  • As often or as little as a couple wants.  It's quality not quantity that matters.

  • Depends on the couple.

  • I don't think there is a cookie cutter answer for that one. Each couple is different. What may be enough for one couple may not be for another. My husband and I go months without sex (thank you Uncle Sam) but we still have a very healthy marriage. Its just something each couple has to work out between themselves.
