  • According to Dr. Oz, it's healthy to have orgasms more than 200 times per year! "If you have more than 200 orgasms a year, you can reduce your physiologic age by six years," Dr. Oz says. Among the benefits of having sex often, Dr. Oz says, is that it can prove that your body is functioning as it is supposed to. "But in addition, having sex with someone that you care for deeply is one of the ways we achieve that Zen experience that we all crave as human beings," he says. "It's really a spiritual event for folks when they're with someone they love and they can consummate it with sexual activity … seems to offer some survival benefit."

  • My personal thoughts.

    How often/how many times a couple has sex is not important.That's not what really matters. What matters is this: That BOTH partners are happy, fulfilled, satisfied and pleasured by/with their sex life.. That's what matters.

    A couple can have sex every single day. However if it's not sex that BOTH are happy/satisfied/fulfilled/pleasured by then it won't matter. There will eventually be discord/issues because someone is not happy.

    A couple can have sex once a month. And BOTH be fully satisfied/happy/fulfilled by it. And thye will be happy and have no issues in regards to their sex life.

    How often/How much doesn't matter. Both partners being happy with their sex life is what truly matters in the long run.

    ((us.. married 25 years.. sex averages 5x a week))

  • That's totally up to each inividual couple. Some have more drive. There is no right or wrong answer here. I recently read though that if its's less than once per week that it can cause irregular period for the woman. And if female cats continually come in heat and do not mate, it puts them in danger of developing uterine infections and cancer. My cat went years without being fixed, she was indoors. Then came day that she was literally peeing on everything every few mins or so. We had her fixed and the vet called us right after the surgery to tell us she had removed a large tumor from her ovary and that it had caused the peeing. Scary to think about!

  • As often as they like :)
    After having kids, we have times where we may have it more than once a day for a few days then may not have the privacy to do it again for a couple of weeks or longer...
    I don't think it's the quantity as much as the quality that counts :)
    We've been married 17 years btw
