For harmony in life together, people should have sex weekly, according to a number of media outlets, citing a group of researchers from the University of Toronto. According to the researchers, more frequent intercourse does not affect the level of marital happiness, but less frequent intercourse can lower it.
Scientists conducted a survey, in which more than 30 thousand people were reportedly taken part. Each of the participants was also asked how often they would like to have sex with their partner, and the most common responses were "more often than this is happening now." In part, the assumption that people tend to have frequent sex was also confirmed by the answers to the question - how happy the participants consider life with their partners. As it turned out, the more sex a couple had, the happier they were together. However, such dependence ceased to be observed during sex more often than once a week - apparently, even more frequent entering into an intimate relationship “additionally” could no longer make people happy. Experts also note that the average frequency of intercourse among the respondents was about once a week.
Subsequently, experts conducted two similar surveys, in one of which 2,400 married couples took part, and the results were similar. Experts have published scientific work in the journal Social Psycological and Personality Science.
Earlier, other researchers cited data according to which people aged 18 to 29 years old make an average of 119 sexual acts per year, from 30 to 39 - 86, and from 40 to 29 - 69 times a year. At the same time, a number of specialists previously noted that most people, contrary to popular belief, most often do not lose interest in sex until the age of 70, and sometimes much longer. At the same time, it is argued that men, on average, think about sex 34 times a day, while women - 18.
