What is 'healthy' is totally subject to debate. In relationships, and active sexlife of several times a week would be great, but not always possible/practical.

Statistically speaking, the average that people have sex is quite spread, with about 30%-40% several times a month, 30% two or three times a week, 15% a few times per year and people with have sex more than 4 times a week or not at all are both roughly below 10%.

These stats obviously vary a lot between locations and age, but in general, for a healthy 'relationship', I think once per week is essential.

Hmmm I'd be curious to know these numbers also....I think healthy is 3-4 times a week, but that's just me. Everyone has their own sex drive. I tend to take it personally if my boyfriend doesn't want to have sex as often as me. He's actually turned me down (which was a first) a few times due to being "tired" and he's 4 years younger than me. I've always had a high sex drive though (except when I was on the verge of my divorce and couldn't stand the sight of him) and would be in heaven if I got it once a day!

Those %'s listed above are interesting to me....I wonder where those #'s came from.

I agree with the 3-4 times a week number, but sometimes it might be less. Still, many couples your age will do it everyday and others find once or twice on the weekends is enough.

Three to four times a week is good. As you get older it slowly declines as the years roll by. When you're younger, like 18-24 it's more like a couple times a day, at least.

It is totally individual, I guess. The most important thing is that both partners are happy about how often it is happening. I'm 26 and have always thought I have a pretty high sex drive: at least once a day. However, my current partner is 55 and has a much higher sex drive! So, I guess that disproves that it gradually diminishes with age. I love it, but would guess that it would be too much for a lot of people

Yeah, I suppose 3-4 times a week could be normal. I think part of that also ties in to whether you live together or not. My g/f and I are live-in; opportunities arise every day, so we usually go at least once a day, definitely more on weekends, and whenever time allows otherwise. Heh, I guess like it's been said everyone's sexdrive is different.

Question

http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif It's whatever amount you are mutually and individually comfortable with. Now, that state of affairs remains a fantasy, for me. For instance - my second wife and I met 20 years ago. She was Japanese - and claimed to have never met a man who could "keep up with her". I accepted the challenge - and over time (having experienced satiation, I suppose) her interest started to wane (perhaps the challenge was gone, I don't know)... What I DO know is, that only one (1) partner and I EVER were matched perfectly in that realm. Unfortunately, she was crassly materialistic, and demanded to use me for sex only until she could lasso a "6-figure" income with at least reasonable compatability (her mother had trained her that a woman needs at least a dozen men to satisfy her varied and specific tastes and yearnings). And so it goes - the elusive perfect match... I wish !!!

------------------
Am I here, yet ???

I think it also depends on how long the couple has been together. My husband and I are only 24 but have been together over 9 years. In our late teens we were like rabbits but now I'd say we do it two - three times a week or so. Every person has a different sex drive and you need to consider a person's stress level, relationship (if it is new it is obviously going to be more), and outside factors, etc.
