The frequency of sex among married couples depends on how old they are. One survey looked at the sex lives of married people by age. They found that:


  • Between 18-29, married people had sex 112 times a year, or a little over twice a week.

  • Between 30-39, they had sex 86 times a year, or about seven times a month.

  • Between 50-59, they had sex 69 times a year, or a little under six times a month.


Sex appears to declines further as couples get older. Although frustrated married people can romanticize the sex lives of swinging singles, studies show that married people have more sex than single people. While married people 18-29 have sex over nine times a month, single people average a little under six a month. It makes sense -- married people have a potential sexual partner in bed with them every night. Singles often sleep alone.

Hi Folks, As this is an old question, just thought I would add a bit, from me.

Forget how many times a week we do it, but for me and my wife now mid 60s+ 3,4, 5 times a week depending on my ED.

But its not how many, its not done to records, its down to you and just how you and your partner need to do it and weather your getting satisfaction from doing it, its the enjoyment of the love making that really counts, being together, entwined body's, hot passion.

This keeps life sweet. keeps you healthy.

Do hope this helps you folks.

Good Luck
