How often should I have sex?

There is a huge variation in how frequently people want to have sex.  Some couples enjoy sex every day.  Others are happy having sex once a month. 

Your age, stage of life and current circumstances can all impact on libido.  Many couples have a discrepancy between their levels of interest in sex and there is frequently a discrepancy between how often people want sex and how often they actually have it.

An important factor to consider is: are you and your partner happy with the quantity and quality of your lovemaking?  If there's a big gap between your levels of interest and this causes serious conflict or tension in your relationship, this would be a good reason to seek sex therapy.
