      sex is by consensus, but both parties should be honest, not say what they THINK the other wants. Two adults (or more if everyone is into it)
      consenting together. Partners.

      I would suggest taking a break at some point during the 7 days...

      if for no other reason than to keep my record safe

      "How many time should couples sex in a week?"

      As many times as it takes for the male to be carried out of the room on a stretcher.

        I don't know why he'd need to be carried out of the room, he'd already be in bed.

    It's completely up to you. If both of you have high sex drives, then go for it as much as you want.

    If you're both comfortable with other intimacies (such as hugs and hand holding), that's fine too.

    No one outside your marriage or relationship should set the rules for what goes on inside it. It's a mutual agreement between the pair of you.

      I completely agree with this.  I think you should have sex as much as you all want.  It is such an important part of living together.

        I think that it is mightily impressive how married men over 70 still manage 1.5 times per week on average. Although I am sure that Hugh Heffner brings that average up a fair bit!

          You are buying into the 'young guy' myth  -  us older guys have more than enough for twice a night every night, it is just that as you get older them little fillies seem to be able to run faster and get harder to catch !

      If married men are having more sex than married women most of the time, does that mean they're cheating? lol

        @WryLilt: I love your comment! I saw that trend too and wondered why the married men are involved in sex more frequently than their wives. Maybe because of extramarital relations! Tsk tsk!

    This is an interesting discussion. The number of times a couple should have sex in a week depends completely on them and factors like their sex drive etc.

    I think the chart is rigged!

    I think it includes masturbating cause it says unmarried men
    have more sex than unmarried women lol
    and we know a woman just has to offer sex usually and gets it
    while men don't and they masturbate more, don't they? lol
    ?

    Well I wrote a hub on this subject in marriage and the average was three times a week, but I think that is not what most people are having but what most people thought was the average.  I thought that this was amusing, so I decided to dive deeper into the murky waters of sex in marriage and found that more than 50% of the couples that were married were in a sexless marriage.  The couples that were having good sex in the marriage were having it quite often and many times even into their 80's.  Yes statically sex does decrease as couple‚Äôs age, but the most important factor was that the couples that were still sexually attracted to one another and had good sexual chemistry were having sex many times a week.
    One last bit of information that I found promising was that is both husband and wife were equally willing to work on the sex in their marriage, and then the outcome was better than expected.  They learned to better communicate with one another on what turned each of them on and explored new positions and other ways to improve the sex in their marriage.

    You can't go by charts as I read that men over 60 have sex about twice a month yet my husband is 64 & I am 45 & we make love on average 5-7 mornings  a week so it all depends on how much you enjoy it as a couple !

  23. kat11 profile image61
    kat11posted 7 years ago

    I agree with freecampingaussie charts and stats don,t mean anything.  Although my spouse and I are the same age. We on an average have sex on an 6 to 8 times during the week. We are high school prom sweethearts. So our sex relationship has grown together. I believe that most people should continue in any relationship try interesting positions. When you are in the mood take advantage of the time you have together and enjoy it as a couple.

    If a couple is together in the true commited sense and they are in love, then they should make love constantly. Whether its reproductive intercourse, non-reproductive intercourse, necking, dry humping, kissing or just projecting their perfect (for them) partnership to the world, then go to it .  .  . and good luck!

    Sex is not just an act. It is a joyful act.


    If SHE agrees for that,
    And HE  has a hard fact,
    Then play on,
    Be it soft bed, or, hard mat.

    Remember, don't count the days of your life, count the life in your days.

      It depends on the sex drive of each person.....trouble starts when 1 is more highly sexed than the other. If you manage to find someone with equally high sex drives, then sexual bliss is bound to follow. I have had sex nearly every day and about 6 times at weekends since we met 18 months ago and I cant see anything changing! woohoo! :-)

    If both parties agree, as much as you feel like it. It's a personal decision for each couple. Some married couples that have been together awhile may only come together like once a month, but if you two have that passion, that's awsome. When the kids come along, good luck with keeping that desire burning.

    Interestingly enough, the more sex you have the more appetite you have for it!  I can't think of anything more fun that (as least for me) is free!!  I have been married 11 years and have two kids, and to be honest it only keeps on getting better.  I think practice makes perfect!  It is vital for a couple to be at it as a rock-bottom minimum of 2-3 times a week.  The health of their relationship is intimately entwined in it. Twice a day a doable maximum in this household.  Practicalities mean there are kids to feed, jobs to go to, etc.....so that can place limits on time for pleasurable leisure activities anymore than that!!

        It was one of those recommended on the right of the screen... why do they advertize those if they're not supposed to be used? You'd think they'd publicize current ones.

    As sex is a natural and enjoyable part of everyday life we love to start off the day that way . As you get older and with the right person it gets even better so 7-10 times a week is good !

    Vague question as it presumes that all couples are physically healthy. Some couples work away from home as much as 11 months of the year (military, actors/actresses, musicians, athletes,etc.)
    There is no "should have at least" answer, maybe "on average" yes. some couples are fine without it for months as love is much more than sex. There are online couples who consider themselves a couple too (Manti Teo).

    I agree some have health issues or are not together the whole time so that changes things . Love does include more than sex however Love Making is an enjoyable way to show love to each other and a lovely way to spend some time together !
