(Jezebel)   Marriage counselors recommend couples have sex twice a week to improve intimacy. Columnist wonders why twice? "Twice is better than once and once is better than none, but how did we arrive at this idea that twice a week is a good amount of sex?"   (jezebel.com) divider line 23

Rain Fall: If sex is the glue holding your marriage together, you should not be married.

There are plenty of things that can make sex become hard, if not impossible: disease being one of them...say cancer..and it can literally stop sex like turning off a light switch. In this case, the relationship itself, the love and friendship, devotion and so on.. are what will hold the marriage together. Understand, cancer can stop sex permanently depending on its severity. I'm just saying...

That said, sex and marriage go hand in hand. I don't understand women who withhold sex from their men, or men who demand sex from their women. Surely there must be a way to figure it out without all the stupid gender stereotypes having to come into play?

I would assume a man needs intimacy and love and to fee appreciated and cared for in the same way as a woman does, and I would assume that a woman needs sex the same way a man does, but crossed wires, cultural and/ or gender expectations, combined with fatigue, ennui, being married for the wrong reasons, job pressures, kids, life in general make this all hard to accomplish sometimes.

People should communicate more, not read articles online. If your afraid to talk to your husband or wife about intimate issues, you probably should not be married to that person.


You are far too rational and mature to be posting your opinions here. Flee! Flee from this place immediately before it destroys you and your reasonable soul! Run! Run like the wind!

Not clicking the link, but if I had to guess:

Twice a week is too much because all sex is rape and disgusting because men.

argylez: I could have sex 3x a day, my wife 1x every couple of weeks.

/we're getting divorced, how did you know?


I know your feels. Though in my case, she's slowly beginning to see the increase in the amount of her shiat that I'll put up with when she's touching my penis on the regular.

It's almost like she's noticed that relationship between "gee, he's been awfully irritable the past couple of weeks" and "gee, I've been blowing off his attempts to be affectionate with me for the past couple of weeks."

And I do realize I'm not perfect, and can be difficult. But I also realize I'm married to a "modern" woman who was raised on equality of the sexes, which generally means if I want to live in a clean house and eat a hot meal, then I'm stuck doing it by my damned self. Which does make me irritable, especially when "not tonight" has come to mean "maybe sometime next month."

"I've tried everything! I've tried talking to you, I've tried staying out of your way, you just seem so mad all the time."

"Have you tried sucking my cock? Just throwing that out there..."

I don't know if having sex twice a week is going to help that couple's intimacy issues.

I once heard that the way to make a man happy is a combination of either steak or BJs three times a week.  I think there is a lot of wisdom in that. We are inconvenient but very simple creatures.
