Couples should have sex 3 times a week, readers vote

Having sex thrice in a week is the ideal for couples who intend to reach happiness in their relationship.

Pulse readers have voted that the normal amount of time for sex should be three times in a week.

In a poll published last month, October 18, 2016, a majority casted their vote to express the opinion that engaging in sexual activities three times a week is the way to ensure that the fire in a relationship does not go down.

40.6% of the 2500 participants in the survey say that this is how it should be, while 21.1% of those people say once in a week is enough for sex.

Another 18% believe that for couples to reach sexual satisfaction, they have to get at it five times in a week. [Basically, that's having sex from Monday to Friday. Rest on Saturday and Sunday, then repeat.]

20.3% favour random, unplanned sex, voting that couple can do whatever works best for them - maybe that is doing it once a month or seven days a week.

Regardless of how many times couples decide to enjoy sex though, it is agreed that they can reduce the frequency as they age.

This is due to several reasons, among which is the fact that less sex reduces the risk of Urinary Tract Infection.
