Real Married Couples Reveal How Much Sex They Have Each Week

Posted in: ,

How often do you and your partner have sex in a week? Once, twice, five times, every day, twice a day every day? LOL...

It's a personal question not many people have the courage to ask (or answer!), but it's something most of us wonder, especially when we get curious about how our own sex lives stack up against those of other married couples.

Well, thanks to this Reddit thread, you can now find out how much sex some married people are really having. Just try not to compare.

1. I'm 55, married for 32 years. Twice a week, more or less.

2. I'm 33, he's 29. Married one year, together for 3, one kid. Sex happens on average once a week.

3. This makes so much sense to me. My husband and I have been married almost three years and have a baby. We have sex twice a week on average, sometimes more. It is really not a big deal to us though. The sex is AMAZING and just gets better, but we are so happy together it is just a very small part of our relationship. It is almost a bigger deal when we are fighting and we have it more often, almost as a way to increase intimacy until things are back to normal.

4. Married almost 15 years. It's all over the place. Life is really crazy right now. We're both working, both in school, and have a 5-year-old son. Sometimes it's 3x a week, sometimes it's none. It used to be much more frequent, but until we're finished with our degrees (I'm almost done -- woo!), it'll probably stay pretty sporadic.

5. Married 17 years: 2-3 times a year.

6. Married 15. Five kids. Our quota is four times a week. Although "quota" sounds weird, we joke around about it and it's a way for us to remember that although we're busy with life, we still need to have some romantic time with each other to stay sane.

7. Together 30 years, married 25, two kids, in our 50's. We get it on 3 to 5 times a week. When we do not, we rub each other, kiss and snuggle. It is better than I anticipated it would be at this point.

8. Together for 14 years, been married for 11 years, four kids. When things are not closed for maintenance, about five times a week.

9. WOW. Not even married yet, together with my SO for four years, live together ... we haven't had sex in 7 months ...

10. As long as you are both happy and content in the relationship, don't let it get to you too much. I've been with my SO for 2 years and some change, living together for a year and a half, and we have sex about once every ten days. He has a lower sex drive from stress, but I love him so we make it work. If it's truly a problem though, make sure to talk to your SO.

Yes, I had to end it on that very wise note :)


  1. I believe that sex in marriage are not be scheduled activity, because it already secondary to the relationship. To love each doesn't necessarily means you need to have sex frequently.

  2. Yes, I agree that sex for married people brings the intimacy, but we must bear in mind that to have a happy married life will not only focus on frequent sexual activities. There are a lot things to think of especially when you already have children to take care of.
