What is Normal amount of Sex?
We promote having regular sex is good for your health. The question that keeps popping up is "how much sex is consider normal?"
Most people seem to worry because Tom and Jane claim to have sex twice a day and feel they won't receive the benefits from having a healthy sex life because they are only having sex once a week.
The real answer is less complicated than you think. Everyone is different, including their sex drive. Some require more sex while others are perfectly happy having sex twice a month. It all depends on you and what you feel you are happy with. The last thing you should be worried about is comparing yourself to Tom and Jane. You aren't Tom and Jane, maybe Tom wasn't being 100% truthful with you? Maybe he was. It shouldn't matter to you what other people consider their "normal" because everyone is going to have a different answer.
The real question is are you satisfied with your sex life? Are you happy? When I say regular sex, it means just that, what you consider to be regular sex. When I say regular sex is better for your health, I am not implying the more sex you have in a week is going to result in you having better health than someone having sex once a week. The main factor is if you are happy in a healthy relationship that engages in regular sexual intercourse monthly, being once or more, than you could benefit from positive side of having sex. If you aren't happy with the number of times you engage in sex, then that is a conversation you need to have with your partner. If you want more sex from your partner, you need to approach the situation from a loving standpoint. Don't say if you cared about my health, you would have more sex with me. That isn't going to get you more sex but less. Be thoughtful, caring, loving, clean the house, cook dinner, something they want you do but you never do. This isn't a guarantee but merely a suggestion.
A summary: You shouldn't be concerned with how many times other people have sex. You aren't other people. If you are in a healthy relationship that engages in regular sexual intercourse (being once a week or month) you will benefit from having regular sex. The key is are you happy and feel satisfied?
