10 Reasons You Should Be Having More Sex

By Devan McGuinness |

If you’ve been with a partner for a while, there’s no doubt you’ve noticed that the honeymoon phase doesn’t last too long. You and your partner are not as lovey anymore as life comes into action — including mortgages, jobs and kids. Not only does romance take on a new meaning the longer you’re together, you’re likely not having sex as often as you used to.

A study conducted by the University of Chicago Press in 1994 titled “The social organization of sexuality: Sexual practices in the United States“ found that the average American couple has sex about 7 times a month, which is just less than 2 times a week. While that may be ideal for some people, this study also showed that 47 percent of those polled reported only having sex a few times a month.

Even if you and your partner are happy with your sexual relationship, including how often you play between the sheets, there are some sound medical and scientific reasons why you may want to consider striking the mood more often.
