    "2017 study that appeared in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that the average adult currently enjoys sex 54 times a year, which equates to about once a week."

    Once a week? WTF. Boy, I guess unhappy couples are having sex once a year. I think this is one reason both men and women choose to have affairs.

    Eh.... define happy. Maybe they're both happy from all the sex they're getting on the side.

    ...or for her, the reliable vibrator with 3 different settings. Men can't compete with that!

    I'm a simple, low maintenance kind of guy who's pretty happy jacking off to huge gapes a lot of the time. I don't have a gf or wife though

    No that is not why couples have affairs. Most affairs happen because of a lack of communication. If you feel that sex is an issue in your relationship it should be brought up ASAP but most people are embarrassed of discussions like this.

    I also think it would be healthy for our society to stop obsessing over sex. It isn't magical and it isn't going to automatically cure your problems in a relationship. Some happy couples hardly ever have sex.

    Well, 2 dimensional pussy is not the same as the real thing.

    Do single men have sex every day or something? Husbands watching porno affects marriages in a very negative way. Their wives don't become the objects of there affection the gapes do.

    There is an unhealthy obsession with sex. I'd rather have a decent wife that I have sex with 1 or 2 times/week than some hole I defile every night. How much lust are we pretending is left after years and years and after a few kids?

    Here is what that abstract says:
    If you want to get laid:
    • Be young (yeah, you can't control this)
    • Find a long-term partner
    • Don't have kids
    • Watch Porn

    I'm not pretending. Who would pretend? I touch her tittie, I get a woodie.

    Everyone has a different libido, I think this studies are silly. Most couples aren't even honest with each other and yet we expect these articles to have truth? Communication with your partner is key.

    Children are exhausting. Twice a week is pretty good for me. Plus sex is messy, and I always want a shower after. I don't need to take 10 extra showers a week.

    I think we should also strive to be less carnally minded. When you are your partner grow in spirit you will naturally be attracted to each other more. I stopped watching porn years ago and try my best to shut out any lustful thoughts. This improved our sex life so much and I think it is what is missing in most relationships today.

    Couples who hate each other hate fuck each other. That’s how they get their aggression out

    When you get older the sex drive goes down, and sex becomes work more than play, especially if the guy isn't in as good shape as he was in his 20s, which is often the case. Most of us become less sexually attractive as we age. But if you've played your cards right, when you get older your friendship has deepened with your spouse, your bond, your love....you look into each other's eyes and it's no longer so much about sex, but it's still about attraction, and the attraction is deeper than ever.

    This has been my personal experience anyway. I injured my back a few years ago, and I'm not the sex machine I once was, not by a long shot. My wife doesn't care, thank God. Because there's love there, built up over time. No, she's not cheating, and yes I'm sure. Not that our relationship is perfect, even though I guess I'm making it sound that way...I'm just addressing the happy couples having sex issue. My point - Friendship and Love can be sufficient in a marriage in an older couple so that sex can be anywhere from in the back seat or the trunk to not even in the car.

    My missus is fit as fuck (no not posting pics) both late 20's- early 30's and after 8 years together got to be honest once a week is more then enough for me. Not even sure on average we manage that. I'd never cheat but after a while sex isn't important at all and tbh I can't be arsed most of the time. Quality over quantity.

    Once a week seems about right

    Adults will have careers/kids that keep them busy

    Probably only really have time with each other on the weekends

    So yeah makes sense
