How often is everyone else having sex is a question that plagues many of us. Everyone is either worried that they’re getting too much or too little — you just can’t win!
Whether we like it or not, life tends to be a series of competitions, so knowing that we’re at the top of the action scale, is actually quite important to us.
The worry usually comes with wondering whether you and your partner are having enough sex, and how it compares to other couples. The reality is that as long as you’re in a happy, healthy relationship, it really shouldn’t matter what happens between the sheets, and how often, as long as it works for the two of you.
We get that that’s not the case so we asked some of our readers how often they get it on.
How often is everyone else having sex? We find out!
My boyfriend and I have been together for four years now, and we started sleeping together fairly quickly after dating. Back then it was easily twice a day, now it’s about once a week. This is due to a lot of things, from different schedules, to living in separate houses; otherwise we would be doing it a lot more often!”
I am newly engaged and have been with my now fiancé for three years. We’ve always been quite active in the bedroom, but since getting engaged, things have certainly heightened and we’ve been doing it pretty much every day!”
My husband and I have 2-year-old twins who demand all of our attention so without meaning to, sometimes its weeks before we’re intimate with each other. This hasn’t affected our relationship at all though as we’re aware how little time we get together. We’re confident that things will get back to ‘normal’ when the boys get older.”
I’ve only been with my boyfriend for six months so we’re still very much in honeymoon phase! We have sex at least four or five times a week, sometimes more. I’m sure this will not always be the case but boy am I enjoying it for the moment!”
My boyfriend and I have an unspoken rule of sorts that Sundays are always our day to get down and dirty. Excluding those days, we probably do it twice more a week.”
Now a days it depends on things like stress, that time of the month, or if you’re just not feeling up to it, but we go through periods of getting intimate sometimes three times a day. We tend to grab it while it’s hot and pray nobody is watching!”
Remember: no matter how often everyone else is having sex, you need to be happy with how much you’re getting. Whether it’s too much or too little, talk to your partner and make sure everyone is happy between the sheets.
