ok really stupid and sad question... whats the "normal" amount of times for a committed couple to have sex a week?

does the number mean anything?

PS I KNOW THERE IS NO "NORMAL" AND EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT JUST CURIOUS AS TO WHERE I PERSONALLY COMPARE TO YA'LL.


THANKS!

My daughter has limb girdle muscular dystrophy. She may waddle, she may fall, but she is not ignorant. She sees you stare. She hears you snicker. Her heart aches like mine and yours when people laugh at her. Be polite and ask about her condition rather than be rude and make fun of her. Please educate yourself, as I can only educate her so much about ignorance and stupidity. I can only tell her so much about just how cruel the world can be.

I think everyone can have a different "normal".  There are a lot of variables to consider (sex drive, schedules, kids, etc.)

I don't think there is a "normal" number.

Normal for us is once every other week now. I am pregnant and have a 1 yr old daughter and by the end of the day I am pooped. I just want to read some of my book and fall asleep. Just don't have the energy anymore. I would love to do it more often, but like I said, I am pooped at the end of the day.  :(

hmm maybe you should make a pole to compare easier...this study is a little dated but gives you an idea of the average...we are about 4 or 5 times a week.

A survey by Durex, a leading research firm, found the frequency of sexual interaction varies significantly from country to country. The global average for frequency of sex is 109 times per year (2.1 times per week, or once every 3.3 days). The following summary shows how individual nations compare to the national average of frequency of sexual interaction per year.

Frequency By Country
United States 135
Russia 133
France 128
Germany 127
Britain 124


People from Thailand had the lowest average sexual frequency at 64 times per year, half the frequency of Americans.

Ok, here is a link that goes by age and also married couples and it's from 1994, so I am not sure if it's changed any since then, Darn it! Why can I not be in that 7% anymore, lol!!!!


 

Quote:

13% of married couples reported having sex a few times per year, 45% reported a few times per month, 34% reported 2-3 times per week, and 7% reported 4 or more times per week (Laumann, Gagnon, Michael, Michaels, 1994).
