      well seeing as how I never had a regular girl friend before.  well i did, but i wouldn't call them exactly normal relationships...well maybe one but it wasn't that intimate.  lol.  however, if it were me and she'd be agreeable to it, I would say at least two to three times a day or more if things really heated up.  wink  lol.

          I think we need a fuller definition of SEX, after all Clinton said that certain acts were not actually sex..

            exactly... for me as a married man, I would like 'sex' to include watching re-runs of Baywatch in the nude by myself while I eat ice cream

              Baywatch is banned here..... Ice cream is ok as long as you eat it in separate sides of the store and not with a woman... The most erotic thing I see is women dressed as Ninjas all the time...

    Couples who are exclusive to themselves, should have sex as often as the two of them feel like having it.

    If the couples are not exclusive, then it would depend on much more other factors. lol

    Depends on what stage you are in your relationship:

    Start : when do you NOT have sex?!
    A few years down the road : Once/twice a week
    Several years + kids later : yawn...too tired...
    Eventually : Sex, what's that?

    one should have sex with one's partner as many times as it take to assure that one's partner feels fully satisfied and relaxed....

    then it is time to go back home to your wife

      6 times over 2 1/2 days!?!?!

      By my estimation, that's a total of 10 full minutes of sweet loving

    I always say quality over quantity.  If a person has enough time to have sex all day long, then that is great.  So 6 to 8 hours, sounds good to me.  How many times can a person have sex in that period of time?

    In all seriousness, I think there is an expectaion that people have and when they dont have sex as often as they believe the should they think something is wrong.  There is a lot of sexual disfunction.  I think a couple must discuss it and see what their expections are and try to have something that will be amenable to both partners.  I think all too often people dont talk and hold anger inside as well frustration.  It is shocking if we looked at how often people actually have sex with their partner and compare it to the the expectaions they have.

    The answer should be........A amount that would be amenable to both partners.

    If you have very little sex and you think you should have more you will be unhappy.  Sometimes time limits it so we just need to talk and be realistic.

    It's a silly question really, I mean are you going to keep a list and count? Sex like that would be meaningless when it should be spontaneous, like an explosion, a sudden burst of combustion started by the spark of a look, a touch, a gentle pat or squeeze of the bum and then an eruption into flames of frantic passion. Sex isn't something you do on a schedule, lets see we have to f**k 5 times this week so when will it be good for you? Ridiculous! If you feel passionate enough about your partner you'll both have more than enough sex in a week, that is if you can ever have enough sex!
