2. "In my 20s we went at it seven days a week even after living together awhile, and I would sometimes want morning and night. It only really slowed in our 30s after having kids and that's normal. We still have sex around twice a week, much more if we're on holiday."
3. "My partner and I fall into similar patterns and break them only when one of us becomes aware of it and/or really wants it. I think there is enough communication that it hasn't ever caused problems, but I've wondered how this works for others because sometimes when I realise it's been two weeks I'll get a little anxious."
4. "There is no one 'normal' and marriage/kids/life can always complicate it, and that’s perfectly normal. We’ve had to go weeks without it depending on what’s going on, to a bunch of times per week. Plus, after you’ve been together a long time, you realise every marriage goes through phases. It’s easy for a 20-year-old to say, 'The sex is not as much as you’d like so dump them'. For most people though, it’s not that simple. To me, as long as both sides are making an effort to make the other happy and are compromising, that’s the key."
5. "My wife and I have penetrative sex probably about once a week, but we fool around probably four to four times a week, whether that’s just oral, dirty talk, or a number of other things."
