Sex and married couples study is this accurate in your life

I recently read a current study that said that married couples have sex on average 59 times a year. Is this the case for you? I am thinking that it is a bit low? How about you?

  • I think it's very low for me :P

  • That works out to about once a week. It sounds a bit high to me! Of course my husband and I both work a lot and we have 3 children (2 of them are under 3 years old). I expect we will get closer to that as the kids get a little older and we aren't so worn out, but then we'll be older so maybe not.

  • That sounds about right. It's normal. Grown up life of raising a family and taking care of the house, juggling relatives, jobs, and everything else doesn't revolve around sex. I've never really believed that people who say they have sex three times or more a week aren't telling the truth.

  • Sounds about right for us. We've been married for 15 years, together for 19 and have two small children. While the sex is still good, the need to have it all the time isn't there. We definitely have sex once a week and then some other random days thrown in. I'm positive that it's more than 59 days a year, but probably less than 80.

  • I think we have sex less then that. I try to give it to him as less as I can. I hate my husband!

  • I think a lot depends on how old you are and health. When we were younger we were at it all the time. Now because of health issues and age we've slowed down. I think now we are lucky if we get 3 times a month. But seriously I have no sex drive and don't care.

  • so that's a little more than once a week. yeah, that's kind of low. well, maybe older married couples don't have sex as often...

  • sad to say i thought that # was very high. our relationship hasn't been great since our baby was born 5 YEARS AGO!! we are probably in the 12-20 times a year range.

  • It's an average, so for us it would be a little low but I know we are on the higher end (especially from some of the posts I read on here!)
