Do I Have More or Less Sex Than People my Age?
To put it simply they wanted to know how much sex is normal, by age.
They hoped to understand if being older decreased a person’s sexual appetite and if so, by how much.
The results were clear and to be honest, I didn’t need a scientific study to know what they’d eventually discover. The outcome is pretty obvious. As we age the number of times we have sex decreases. Shocker!
So, How much Sex Are People Having?
How many times each age group participates in sexual intercourse is listed below.
The number of sexual encounters for 18 to 29 year olds!
- 18 to 29 year olds have sex an average of 112 time per year!
The number of sexual encounters for 30 to 39 year olds!
- 30 to 39 year olds have sex an average of 86 times per year!
The number of sexual encounters for 40 to 49 year olds!
- 40 – 49 year olds have sex an average of 69 times per year!
Ok, so as people age they are having less sex. I’m sure the reasons are numerous and vary from person to person. The real shocker from this study is…
How much sex is normal for Married Couples!
So, How much sex are Married couples having?
- 13% of married couples only have sex a few times a year!
- 45% of them several times a month
- 34% two to three times a week
- 7% of them four or more times a week
If you’re single or engaged to be married, don’t let these numbers scare you. Everyone’s marriage is different and I’m sure your marriage won’t be like the 13% of people surveyed. You’ll probably end up closer to zero than that! Congratulations! I’m joking, kind of!
Older people and Sex!
I’m also sure those numbers for the older generation are lowered by the marriage slump numbers. People in new relationships have more sex, older people are married more than younger people.
There are lots of studies which suggest people 60 and over still engage in regular sex.
I’m not sure it’s an “age thing” as much as it’s a “boredom with your partner thing“. What do you think?
