Two, three, four times a week? How many times does the average couple have sex? I consulted with sexuality expert Cory Silverberg at About.com: Sexuality. What I found might surprise you.

It's not unusual to equate the health of a relationship with the frequency of sex. When relationships settle in, the frequency of sex can decrease, leaving rise to increasing insecurities.

But in truth, majority of men and women who are living together have sex 8 to 12 times per month. Do the math. That's only 2 to 3 times a week! So, you're not alone in what seems like a stalled run.

Increasing Your Sexual Frequency
Life happens and there could be a number of reason why your romping marks score below average. Work stress, relationship strain, personal issues, amongst other things can lessen the libido or simply reduce time for intimacy. But, there are ways you can rev things up in the bedroom. And while you're at it, take a few moments to fine tune your sexual compatibility. After all, better chemistry leads to better sex.
