Dear Dr. Smith
59. Dear Dr. Smith
How many times a week should a couple have sex and is there any data that go along with that?
Dear Question on Sex
A couple can chose to have sex as often as they like as long as they are both up to it and are both satisfied. There is no rule of thumb as to quantity; several variables will determine frequency, for example, age, health, contentment, commitment, trust, marital satisfaction, energy, synergy and chemistry.
Sex is a beautiful experience in marriage and should not be measured by quantity, but by the quality of the affection for each other. Like any good thing, one must exercise control, for temperance is a moderate use of that which is good. Obsessive-compulsive behavior will only degenerate into emptiness and carnality.
