    How often should a young couple, in a long-term relationship, living together, of ages 18-25 have sex a week after the Honey-Moon Period (1 year+)?

    I would say 3 times a week, your thoughts?

    Jk. Depends on the couple, some people just aren't as interested in sex as others. There's no right or wrong answer, everyone to their own y'know

    You're asking a bunch of horny students how often couples 'should' have sex?

    I suspect if you were to poll full-time working young adults the result would be wildly different.

    Haha I was gonna go with 14- every morning and night cus what better way to start and end the day? But then I read the after 1 year+ bit and figured they might have gotten somewhat bored with each other at that point/spend half the week fighting and not talking anyway so gotta be realistic!

    Yeah I'm starting to realise that now reading the comments...

    Especially the one saying "After 1+ year they'd be bored of eachother and argue half the time".

    Good luck with 3 times a week. Usually by the time your living together, with the sex on tap opportunity that theoretically presents, sex drive mismatch has reared its ugly head and one are other side is up for it only weekly or even less.

    don't think there's a 'should' about it, depends on each couple - even people who are living together may have mismatched schedules with work/study, people may be tired and overworked and some people's sex drives just differ

    some couples will be happy with once a week or less and others will think less than daily is unthinkable

    It'll vary from couple to couple but I've been with my partner for eight years now and sometimes, we have sex every few days, then other times its maybe once a fortnight or maybe not even any sex for a couple of months. Life happens - you are busy, you get ill, sometimes you just aren't in the mood etc. As long as we are affectionate every day and do other things we enjoy together such as gaming, have days out etc, which we do, I couldn't care less about how often we have sex as to us, the relationship is about more than that.

    Not to be overly personal, but would the inverse be true then? If you're not bothered about how often, would you be ok if he wanted it twice a day?

    There is no 'should' to having sex. I know people who have sex two-three times a day during the weekend, but in my relationship (of two and a third years), we've never had sex and have explicitly said on multiple occasions that we never want to.

    It varies not only between couples but also within couples across time. We vary from 0 to >7. Over the last year, I would say on average 2.5 times.

    It is a function of how stressed she is and how much time I've been left on my own with a computer.

    There is no 'should' about it. Even within couples, sex will go up and down. That is normal.

    No 'should' but from experience when I lived with my ex of 3 years, it was a few times a week.

      I didn't know the honeymoon period was this clearly defined - or this long. I've only ever really heard it said to be around three months, depending on the couple and on the individuals.
