What is the “Normal” Frequency of Sex?

The ideal frequency of sexual intercourse is an issue that occupies the agenda between partners.

The question "How often couples should have sex?" may also be a question for you, as in all couples, for which you seek an answer. Maybe you are evaluating whether "Am I enough for my partner?", "What about in other couples?". This situation may come to a level that causes anxiety for you.

However, the first thing to know is that it is not healthy to reach a clear conclusion about the frequency of sexual intercourse. Your sex life with your lover can be affected by many factors, from events in your daily life to changes in your anatomy.

In other words, to talk about basically, your age, lifestyle and general health status are highly decisive in this matter. This explains why the ideal frequency of sexual intercourse does not have a standard answer for everyone.

Dr. Yaşar Başağa is ready to offer his expertise in solving all your problems related to male sexuality. In his clinic, he answers your questions and draws out the most suitable treatment plan for you.

Factors Affecting Frequency of Sexual Intercourse

As the article wants to mention, although many factors need to be evaluated together in this regard, the main reasons affecting the ideal relationship frequency can be listed as follows:

  • Psychological State: These conditions such as stress, depression, anxiety can affect sexual desire and performance.
  • Physical Health: Mental state, pain, or treatments can affect sexual desire or performance.
  • Relationship Quality: The level of trust, respect, understanding and love in your relationship can affect your sexual desire and performance.
  • Lifestyle: Factors that determine your manner of living such as smoking, alcohol, sleep patterns, exercise, nutrition can affect sexual health and desire.
  • Expectations: Since sexual desires between spouses may be different, your mutual approach and attitude in this regard may have an impact on your performance.

Sexual Intercourse: Quality, not Quantity

As we mentioned at the beginning of our article, there is no clear number to the intensity of sexual intercourse, but experts can say that it is reasonable to have sex twice a week for young couples and once a week for middle-aged and older couples in the light of studies on this subject.

In addition, according to the same studies, it is said that having sexual intercourse less than 10 times a year on average may indicate a problem between couples. Behind this, there may be different issues such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, low hormone levels and sexual reluctance. A couple in this situation should definitely talk to a specialist.

Of course, these are average figures and different results may occur for different couples. So if you're making love less or more, you can still be happy, the thing is the satisfaction and the happiness between you. In today's society, there are many couples who are not satisfied with each other despite having sex every day, cannot establish closeness in these relationships and therefore are not happy.

"Don't Evaluate Your Happiness With The Frequency Of Sex"

In Turkey, there are some general perceptions and well-known mistakes in people's view of sexuality. Your sex life is important for maintaining a happy relationship with your lover, but it is never a single measure.

Sex is much more than just penetration, a combination of penis and vagina. It is a form of bonding. It should be considered as a whole, not just physically. The importance of your contacts with your partner, your hugs, little kisses and comforting conversations for a healthy sex life is undeniable.

Do Erectile Dysfunctions Affect Sex Frequency?dr.yasarbasaga

For men with erectile dysfunction problems, drugs may not increase the frequency of sexual activity. Instead, these medicines aim to solve the problems so that penetration becomes possible.

However, it cannot be said that erectile dysfunction drugs directly increase sexual desire or the frequency of regular sex. The way around this may be to focus on other factors of your sex life and you may need to consider other measures you can take besides medications.

In addition, it is recommended that you talk to your doctor before using these drugs and keep going this process under his supervision.

“Have Sexual Intercourse Every Day?”

The question of whether to have sexual intercourse every day is also very much curious about this subject. This is possible, but as we mention over and over, the ideal frequency of sex may be different for each couple. Factors such as personal needs, relationship status, harmony and agreement between the pairs affect the situation.

Some couples may have sex every day, while others may have intercourse once a week or less frequently. What matters is the level of trust, respect and satisfaction between the pairs. There should be mutual agreement and harmony.

The way to have a healthy sex life with your partner is through strong communication. This is not difficult to achieve. The important thing is to know the wishes and expectations of both you and your lover, act accordingly and take precautions if necessary.
