How Many Sexual Encounters Do You Have Per Week?

When it comes to sex people can get pretty competitive in their thinking. This is another area where some people want to try to “keep up with the Jones.” If their friends are enjoying sexual encounters 5 or more times per week then they feel they should be doing the same thing or they are not normal.

Factors That Affect Libido

The first thing we need to take into consideration is that every couple approaches sex in a different way. Some couples are single and some are married. Some are younger and some are older. Some have children and some don’t and some are very stressed where others are not.

There are always people who are very competitive and do not wish to be considered average at anything, especially when it comes to sex. Many people want to be considered above average in this department. However, how often couples have sex depends on many factors which makes it hard to establish a good number for everyone.

It All Comes Down To Libido

Some people have high libido and others don’t have much. If both in the couple have enhanced libido then you can expect them to have sex more often then those who lack libido and are experiencing the factors mentioned above.

One study suggested that couples less than 30 years of age and married reported having sex about 2 times per week. Those over the age of 50 were lucky to experience a sexual encounter once per week. Again, every couple is different and this could easily be reversed in various relationships.

Some couples report having sex 10 times per week or more. This may be justified or it may be wishful thinking, but obviously this number is not impossible by any means.

The Final Word

Don’t try to compare your sex life with those around you. Just because you have sex several times per week and your neighbors hardly get out of bed does not mean you are a sub-par couple. What is important is that both you and your partner are happy with the amount of sex you have and that you enjoy the sexual encounters you are able to share.
