I'm thinking that number is rounded up.  If someone were to ask me the last time I had sex I might answer "last week" where my husband might answer "last month" bitterly to me.

So what you're saying is you're getting more sex than your husband?

I can see how you'd think that. My bad. I meant that sometimes people exaggerate in either direction. If they think they aren't getting enough or they think ppl will judge them for not getting enough.

It's those fark bunnies who are bringing up the average due to Farkers.

Does once every 3-5 years count as an average, or a justification for suicide?

2-3 times a week sounds about right for the Mrs. and me.

So, do you add your total with your wife and girlfriend up, or have a separate total for each?

Well, if the distaffbopper and I are included, that means some couple out there is having sex 4.235 times a week.

My girlfriend and I would like to apologize for statistically cockblocking you.  Nah, we're shameless.

Married 18 years here, roughly once a month or so? Then again, she gets no enjoyment out of it and just goes thru to make me happy, so I feel bad sometimes for having it that often :/

"Oh, well that's interesting.  Seems a little high."

"Well, that's what the data shows.  No doubt about it."

"Hmm.  How long has the average couple been together in your survey?"

"Three weeks."

No, in a month. You must not be very good at reading.

Yup, totally whiffed that one. I meant to type month but was multitasking and flubbed it.

If we dont do it at night it usually means were fighting or something, this makes me scared for the future lol

Sometimes more than 9 times, like 9.3 times.

Mrs. Caelistis is like that so we came to an arrangement. We found a third whose company and friendship we both thoroughly enjoy and I get a free pass with. She was surprisingly cool with it as her exact words were "I do not expect you to go through the rest of your life either masturbating yourself in to loneliness or becoming so frustrated that we either divorce or you pick up something on the side. We set some basic ground rules we both agree on and we go on."

Been working out well for ten years now. Everyone's happy. Maybe make a suggestion?

I can empathize. My wife has been less interested and enthusiastic since she started Zoloft (which apparently has reduced libido as a side effect). She's hoping to either wean off of it or switch to a different anti-anxiety med when she stops breastfeeding.

For a few years after the second and third kid I could only wish it was once a month.

Slowly getting slightly better.

Married with a kiddo, so twice a week plus a bonus sounds about right.

Often combined with Wellbutrin to counteract the sexual side effects.  I think it's off-label, though.

I HAD SEX YESTERDAY.

Three times a month and it's a lot of work for me.

Losing interest.

CSB...
Back in the day, with my first wife, we had some close friend next door neighbours, the bit older wife's parents, well into the second or third bottle of wine one night, her dad admitted to sex twice a day(!) They would have been in their 60's, the rest of us all looked around at each other with a look somewhere between horror and wonder... mom just got redder and redder. Truth then! and dayum dad... not yet 60 and twice a day has only happened maybe a handful of times total.. Way the hell closer to that average here.

Almost every night....Almost on Monday , Almost on Tuesday..

Late 40s, three kids 8, 10, 12.  It's usually reserved for Saturday night, and the very occasional weekday nooner.

Buspirone is a good one. It doesn't seem to dampen my wife's.

Reading these threads makes me realize how lucky my wife and I are.  But also makes me sad for some of my fellow Farkers.

Can sympathize with cgraves67. Wife is breastfeeding our 3rd and on Zoloft as well. She describes it as having no interest in sex at all. She's planning on switching to something else once she's done.

The reason she's not taking Buspro is that there aren't any dedicated studies on how much is transmittted to the baby via breast milk.
