Just curious how often people have sex. Been in relationship for long time. Thanks

MegaClutterSlut Mon 03-Feb-14 14:24:18

been together 14 years, normally once a week

Depends how often we see each other - we don't live together, but been together nearly 2 years and probably average about 3 times a week.

JWIM Mon 03-Feb-14 14:33:44

Together nearly 30 years - 2-3 times per week, usually weekends due to work/time/family etc.

Really depends on the dynamics of the relationship and everyone has different libidos etc. I would say though the longer the relationship then the less the sex but as long as you are both satisfied then that's all that matters. I would also say, the more you do it, the more you want it!

Married 6 years been together 10, have sex around 2/3 times a week, bit more when on holiday.

This can vary so much. Depends of lots of things really. Can be every day or a couple of times a month.

Together nearly 8 years, married for 3, varies from 3-4 to 5-7 depending on tiredness, business, work schedules and kids etc.libidos go up and down.

about 4/5 times a week on a normal week for intercourse. We are intimate in other ways though aswell its just finding the time

MillyONaire Mon 03-Feb-14 14:58:22

oh my....once or twice a month. Could take or leave it these days - together 20 years. Dh would like more - but probably not much more...

After years of drought for a lot of reasons, I'm getting a healthy amount a week. This due to some superb advice on communication from MN. So it's probably once every other day on average.

LightsPlease Mon 03-Feb-14 15:03:33

5 times a week.

hellsbellsmelons Mon 03-Feb-14 15:05:52

With my ex - 15 years together by the end probably 4 times a week.

OH now - 3 years on and every morning and probably 3 more times, evening or weekend (depending if my DD is out working or not)

SadFreak Mon 03-Feb-14 15:07:17

Hardly ever.

Struggling to recall the last time. Maybe July last year.

But my relationship is fucked - hence the lack of fucking.

MadeMan Mon 03-Feb-14 15:36:23

All the time. I'm having sex right now as I type this.

asgard Mon 03-Feb-14 15:55:28

2 to 5 times a day total of 14 to 35 times aweek

CharlieWoo Mon 03-Feb-14 15:58:08

Maybe every other day.

More often than not. We've been together 19 years.

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Mon 03-Feb-14 16:06:45

What month is it now? About three months ago. sad

FoxMulder Mon 03-Feb-14 16:08:39

I don't know how anyone has the energy mid-week

Sunflower49 Mon 03-Feb-14 16:15:23

It changes, but usually every 2-3 days at least.For the last few weeks It's been more often, several times a day, he has more energy than I do though!

Gossipyfishwife Mon 03-Feb-14 16:24:13

Not since 2001.

Sunflower49 Mon 03-Feb-14 16:31:03

My parents have been together almost 40 years and married for 32.I recently had my Mother tell me she's gutted that as they've aged it has dropped from every day to every two days. My face was a bit shock

SamU2 Mon 03-Feb-14 16:44:36

All depends.

Last week we had sex twice. We have had as long as 3 weeks with no sex.

Our drives are very up and down. I love it when we do it but sometimes I don't have the energy although I am crazy attracted to him.

We have been together for 8 years and have five children.
