According to a new study, couples are happiest when they have sex once a week, disproving the theory that the more sex you have, the better.
Scientists from the University of Toronto analyzed data collected at three time points over 14 years from more than 25,000 married couples.
Couples reported increasing satisfaction with their relationships as sexual frequency increased up to once a week. Making them very happy. Researcher Amy Muise said, ” I do think couples can end up feeling pressure to try to engage in sex as frequently as possible. Once a week is maybe a more realistic goal to set than thinking you have to have sex everyday.” You can be just as happy having sex once a week as you can numerous times.
But, having sex more often than once a week showed no noticeable benefit.
