How often do you have sex?

So my fiance and I have been together for over five years. We do it on average 1 or 2 times a month, maybe three. However it's not uncommon for us to go a month or so without doing the deed. I have always felt my drive to be stronger than my fiance's and it starting to really bother me. I'm wondering how long you've been with your partner and how many times over the course of a month you have sex. Be honest please. :)

I have been with my bf for two years. 4-8 times a month is average. Never been less than 4 times though.

Been with my husband 8 years and generally it's 2-4 times a week unless we're traveling. Used to be almost daily, so neither of us are entirely happy with this, but I guess the honeymoon can't last forever. There's plenty of times when the spirit is willing but the flesh is just plain tired!

We've been married for 5 months, been together for 2.5 years, been living together for over a year. We're probably around twice a week. I think it's winter's fault; we're both at work until it's dark out, and that makes us tired; by 9pm, we're asleep on the couch!!

Totally honest. I have sex with my husband of 4 and a 1/2 years, 2 to 3 times a week. If we had it as infrequent as you do, OP, he would be getting it from somewhere else. He is a healthy viral man who needs sex more than 2 to 3 times a month.

We have only been together a little over a year and we live together. When things are going good and life is good....we are doing it every day, but when life - i.e., work, stress, etc gets in the is a little less frequent, 1-2 times per week.

We've been married 10 years. Usually it's once a week, sometimes twice.

My husband and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary in April but we've been together for 11+ years now.

We have sex usually at least 2-3 times a week, unless someone is sick or something like that.

Married for 15 years, usually once a week, sometimes twicw and sometimes none if circumstances get in the way like illness, business travel, etc.

But I don't think there is a "normal" number. If you are both satisfied with the frequency, who cares? If one or both of you are not satisfied, you have an issue to deal with.

I think my husband and are are well-matched and neither of us is dissatisfied. We rarely turn down advances from one another and always enjoy ourselves, oftern commenting "we should do this more often". But life get's in the way and we accept it. We are both looking forward to retirement when life might be a little more controlled and offer more opportunities.
