I think 3-4 times a week is pretty normal. Some weeks would be almost empty, but the next would catch things up. Ebb and flow, right?

Sometimes, it's like a gourmet meal. Once you've been sated, you're not in a hurry to down the next cheeseburger.

The brain worked, the ginfers didn't. That was to have been "satiated".

No worries, ekraterf "Sated" is a word, too (http://www.freesearch.co.uk/dictionary/sated), just wasn't the one I was trying to type at the time.

We now return you to your normally scheduled sex thread...

3 or 4 times a day. Let's see, multiply 4 times 7 days, 28 times per week I guess.

During the times I was in a relationship I would say 3-5 times a week was the norm..although, at the beginning there was more and obviously when it was falling apart there was less......now, with no relationship.......hmm that equals NO sex!!

"how often a week is reasonable, is average, is, you know, normal?"

Oh, I dunno ... maybe a couple of times a week with me, a couple times with the neighbor, a few times with her friend down the road .... cripes ... maybe once more with her girlfriend ... I say somewhere between 2 and 27.

once a day would be normal for me.........................if she doesn't want it at least 4 times a week, then it's time to move on. I know that's cold but cum'on, there's lots of horny women out there.

In a relationship..per month, more than 3, less than 60. That sounds about right...

Well sex in any realtionship is very healthy to say and it actually makes the body happy in more ways then one. I know if I had the chance I would have sex everyday but in this world not everyone is able too or wants too. So its the case of whom you choose and how well you are compatiable of having a sex partner too keep up with your needs or the needs of your partner . And those like me whom arent fortunate enough to have a parnter to have sex with as much as I can I found self pleasuring myself to be well stimulating and still give my body the nurshiment it needs sexually without having to worry about is he gonna be around to please me when I feel the need too be intimate and press my body against him in the natures call of ages to feel sexual gratification.

Like you said yourself "normal" is a relative term but in my experience early in a relationship do not be surprised if you have sex every day but when things settle in 3 to 5 times a week is a good bet. just remember sex is a 2 way street as long as both of you are satisfied then "normal" is what you make it.

24,162,293 times a picosecond is about right.

Even then, it leaves me wanting.

Sometimes I think when you don't get it you obsess about sex, but when you are getting it it's no big deal. Frequency, for me use to be a big deal, but now I'm more interested in the quality of sex I'm receiving. There are a lot of dynamics to consider-and that's not necessarily directed at sexual drive.

I don't think you can define the terms of sexual encounters (numerically) in a ltr relationship or any other relationship where sex is involved. Yes, I'd love to have it weekly, but there are periods of time that weeks may lapse that I don't have any, where as there are other times where it seems like I have it all the time. Again-it's the quality of the coupling that interests me far more than the exact amount of days per week I THINK I should be having sexual intercourse.

The other aspect to consider is what exactly defines a normal sex life-is it soley intercourse-just foreplay-sharing intimate thoughts with minimal touching-sex can mean a lot of different things to different people. If I was sharing my bed with a live-in lover my hope would be to have intercourse on a steady basis but that would depend on our life circumstances. Sometimes just being in the arms of someone you love is just as nice as doing the naughty.

I've said it before and I'll say it again-I'd much rather have 'ONE night of INCREDIBLE ' than five nights of 'gee that was nice.'

Text books say that average is 2-3 times a week, in a healthy LTR.

The magic answer is to find someone who has a similar sex drive to you. Some couples are thrilled with their sex lives, and only have sex once a month; others are very disatisfied at 3-4 times a week. If you and your partner are having all the sex you want to have; and you are both satisfied with it; then the numbers don't matter.
