    I wonder how can this be harmful? It's no different than those who take medicine everyday. They take medicine either to function mentally or stay alive due to organs not working properly. Making love everyday brings two closer mentally and emotionally. Making love is also a great stress reliever.

      Thanks for answering Michemme. Yes, definitely it makes the relationship more alive and closer. Yes, mentally and emotionally. You're absolutely right. This is the positive side, are there any negative sides? Probably not... :-)

      The negative side could be soreness. Which is no fun. smile

    If the man's penis is larger than the canal of the vagina then it can lead to streatching the vagina after long term use. However if a woman continues her kegel exercises several times a day (which she should be doing anyway) then there should be no harm. Actually it's kind of a win win situation as long as done right. The woman and man can both feel close and get to connect on a physical level. They also get the stress relief caused by the hormones that are released during orgasm.

    Of course it's NOT harmful. The medical community has stated many times that sex is healthy exercise that is good for both the body and the mind. Neither is daily hugging, long wet kisses, or holding hands harmful. Far more couples wish they had (more) sex and affection in their relationship.
    The only issue is if one person does not want to have sex for whatever reason. Depending on how often that is it may cause the other person to believe they are "sexually incompatible". Sexual incompatibility can be "harmful" to a relationship.

    I can't think of any negative side unless one partner is not happy with the frequency.  It is a healthy, normal activity so I can't imagine it being harmful.

    Sex in marriage is not just a biological function. It has a spiritual connotation. It represents the intimate connection of Jesus and the church. It illustrates in a very real way that God is a part of us. It illustrates the kind of love and closeness that Christ has with us individually. The two shall be "one flesh." As long as the act does not become an end in itself. As long as it is a fellowship of spirit and a meeting of the minds, it is healthy. We were created for one another and the continued use of the sex organs is known to be healthy and actually staving off cancers. The thing is we are sinners and tend to lose focus in the things we do. We twist meanings or get selfish. We explore sinful variations and sometimes we change the nature of things that are meant for good into that which is evil and carnal instead of godly and spiritual. Sex needs to be a godly thing. We cannot distort its meaning by bringing anything into the bedroom that does not enhance the picture in our mind of Christ and the church. Rape fantasies, bondage, s&m and the like will not fit that spiritual type. A couple is paired for life and should grow more in love and more in tune with each other's bodies and take a lifetime to do it. A husband should meet and exceed her needs by getting to know every nuance of his wife's body. He should learn to appreciate the gift that was created just for him. His focus is on glorifying God in his bedroom. He  does this by honoring his wife in every way possible. There is nothing more intimate than being "one flesh" in this life except Christ actually living inside and indwelling the believer. That is the most intimate thing in the Christian's life. The marriage covenant is designed to be a joining of two into one. The husband fulfills the wife's needs and ministers to her and the wife does the same. How much need  does she  have physically? He must find out and fill that need. How much need does the husband have? She must find out and fill that need. Each caring for the other's need. I've known women that need sex every day and some that only need to be held every day. I've known men that need it every day as well. As I get older I find I need it less and I feel freer to only care about HER needs. As my  wife gets older I see that she needs it more. I am there to fill that need.

      Great answer. Thank you. You're right, caring for each other and for their needs it's maybe most important in a marriage.

    I used to watch "The Doctors" tv show and the ob/gyn on the show said that having sex every day is not good for the woman's vaginal area due to the pH being altered from having sex (which can lead to infections). Her recommendation was every other day to give the vagina time to go back to the normal pH.

    Personally, I don't have time to have sex every day. Even if I did have time, I think there should be a balance of activities. Time spent just cuddling is important as well as talking, laughing together, etc. Being intimate is only one part of the equation to make a relationship strong.

      Great answer. You're right, it takes a lot of time and everything else is also important in life, like working, talking, and laughing together. :-)

    That is an interesting question. I think sometimes we need a little break from excessive sex. I mean exhaustion and soreness is the only way I could see how it may be harmful. But other than that, if it doesn't hurt and it makes you happy, go for it!

    I recall a particular episode of 'The Doctors' which had a couple who had had sex for 100 days straight.It was an experiment and nothing bad happened, in fact they said that it made their marriage stronger.I guess couples can do such experiment once in a while to revitalize their relationship as long as they have a gynecologist on speed dial.

      How about every day for years?  Oh and we do not need any doctors on speed dial..

    I dont think making love with your partner everyday is harmful. It is a beautiful feeling shared between two people. It also have some other benefits and makes the bond between two stronger.

    No of course it is not harmful.  We have had sexual relations each day for the past five years and we are in our fifties - we happen to really like making love and we arrange our schedules to accommodate time for this every day and we both prepare for it.  Frankly the more you make love the better you get at it and the better everything works.  I have NEVER had a problem with getting an erection, she never has a problem with lubrication - we do take our time and we are soon to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.  She picks out lingerie to wear to bed, I shower and shave before bed and we go to sleep early so we can wake up early and make love.  Frankly forget harmful it is a very healthy way to live and it is very good for a married relationship - you never have to wonder why you got married in the first place....

    Are you bragging or seriously worried about health consequences? If it feels good, do it, if it hurts, stop until it feels good. Seriously some couples have sex 2x a day every day for years, some have it 3x a day most weeks, most of the folks are fit and healthy. Beats running a mile a day. Your body parts both get the benefit of blood vessels being healthier.
