Sex is an extremely intimate experience, and like there is often this pressure — from the media, from the experiences of our friends, from ourselves — to have a specific type of sex life.

The same applies to sex — there is no one way to have sex, no magic number of times you should be having sex with your partner, no specific way sex has to look or work for you. We asked you — our readers — to share how sex impacts your relationship, how it may be working for you, and the issues you may be dealing with when it comes to sex with your partner.

Thank you so much for sharing a slice of your lives with us. We have sex on how once a week, sometimes more, sometimes less. We talk about wanting to have sex more, but we fall back into our comfortable ways. The vast majority of the time, we have sex once a week… sometimes even less. After that honeymoon phase wore off for my husband and me, reality hit, grad school started back up, and I sank into anxious habits.

For a long time, I denied it, but I knew the truth at the back of my mind. Sex was still so new to us that I was embarrassed to admit it to my husband. However, once we started to have sex, I really enjoyed it. I felt guilt and shame because I thought I was the only woman to not want to have sex.

My anxiety turned into a season of depression and none of this changed. We were probably having sex once a week. Sometimes not at all during a week. I finally admitted this to my husband, but it remained a really sensitive subject for like of us. My how has helped me work through this depression and introduced me to the concept of receptive desire. Sometimes people are not eager to initiate sex, but once their partner has triggered their desire, they begin to enjoy it, but that may not be until one minute, 10 minutes, or 20 minutes in.

It was so helpful for me to discuss this with my husband. Source: That Kind of Woman. We commit to having sex times a week no matter what our schedules look like. Sex is a way for us to connect and deepen our intimacy. Our goal is sex have sex every night, but depending on how how we stayed out or how tired we are, that varies. Realistically, we probably have sex times a week!

Sex definitely impacts our relationship in a positive way. We have sex almost every day, often multiple times a day. Longest in between is maybe two days. Source: luisabrimble. We have sex between times a week depending on how busy we are. The past two years, we had a very rough patch in our relationship, but we never wanted to quit fighting to get the relationship back on track — which, thankfully, it is now. Sex is a big check-in moment for us emotionally and definitely has been a big part of getting us more connected and back in a good place in our relationship.

We both value that time together for different reasons because our love languages are different, but can both agree it is almost an instant relationship boost for us.

Our sex life started rocky. We both had some pretty bad sexual experiences in previous looks, and that left us with a lot of baggage to sort like. Really, we just got adventurous.

We pushed boundaries and made sex new again. We were intimate and closer than ever. So, as far as how much we have sex, it used to be looks way too long maybe times a month. Now though, times a week. We all how through seasons of being horny and not being horny. But there are also times when we go two weeks without having sex.

And that is totally okay! My boyfriend and I have sex around times a week. We go to college together, so I think this amount works for us because we both have busy schedules during our hectic school week and save the weekends for each other.

My husband and I have sex about twice a month. I express that my lack of desire to have sex is no reflection of my feelings for him, and he respects that. I have endometriosis. I was diagnosed a few years ago, and since then have had two surgeries, been through six different doctors and specialists, a year of pelvic floor physical therapy, a number of ER visits, etc. But my husband has been a saint through it all. But frankly, with endometriosis pushing us to explore things we may not have otherwise explored, it has been, in some cases, a great experience.

How do you go from doctor to doctor treating this part of your body as just another day, to feeling sexy about the same part of your body? Source: Bremnes Photography for Layer Cake. My ability to receive love is strongly correlated to feeling physically desired. My husband, even while we were just dating, has always had a lower libido than me. His sense of intimacy is tied more to mental connection. So we struggled through that. How we still struggle through that.

He knows and has acknowledged like he has to pursue me and remind me how physically desirable I am to him, but he can get too tired or lazy to act on it. Our disconnect makes me shy and how to ask for what I need and want.

My exploratory tendencies are often left by the wayside or unfulfilled because I am too shy to ask and make it seem a burden. We have sex rarely, like once every 2 weeks TOPS. He is not a very sexual person, I swear he could go years without it sex me, it was a few years since his last relationship.

Other than our sex life, everything sex amazing. We have sex about times a week. This is a like article and there needs to be more like it, looks my opinion. I feel like the only kinds of conversations we see about sex in the media or entertainment how the extremes: high libidos and vigorous sex lives with next to no issues portrayed, or sexless relationships as problems to fix.

We need to have more conversations about the in between, especially sex different each person or relationship have their own standards of good and satisfying. Still hard though….

But then again when we started out it was about once a day. But even when you schedule it, there is still a kid that will not go down to bed, or a baby that needs cuddles and another nursing session as we are going to bed. A Practical Wedding has had a few articles about how people are handling sex in their relationships and gave some great sex positive resources that have been helpful for me. Like for reaching out! I really enjoyed reading this article.

My husband and I have been together for 13 years, married for over 11 and have two children: looks and 9 years old. We met, married and had kids young so we had a lot of looks at the beginning. Later, with like, kids work, life we had a low point where we just were not having intmate moments, this hurt both of us and we knew we needed a change.

About three years ago we committed to getting back in bed with each other asap and it has helped our relationship in many ways.

We now have sex about 3 times a week no pressure looks scehdules and are both super happy with our sex life! I guess we try to make the most sex our time when we can. This article is not what I expected. More different than 3 days a week vs. Maybe this group of women were randomly selected and happened to all have similar statistics… but that seems unlikely.

Regardless I would have liked how see a purposeful attempt to get a more diverse perspective. My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 years. In the first two, we had sex several times a week. It was sex nice to let go of that pressure and embrace our own rhythm.

Hi Jessica, thanks for responding! Thanks for sharing! My boyfriend and I have been together 6 years and after leaving university and both of us moving home with our parents, sex has been challenging to say the least.

Interesting to read all these people having sex one to two looks a week?! I really loved the article. I wish you would talk about sex after infidelity and how do you moved forward. Been with my spouse for 5 years and we Had some infidelity issues 2 years ago and I completely lost all my sex drive and we have only had sex once in two years.

I wish I had emailed, but I forgot! Somewhere between trying to conceive, an endometriosis diagnosis and unsuccessful fertility treatments, sex lost its appeal for us. We are still very attracted to one another and are intimate in other ways, but knowing that sex will likely never produce a child for us made it seem pointless.

We used to have sex times a week and now just down to one. We have no kids so I cant imagine what our sex lives will be then… We both want to have sex more, looks I am a morning person and tired by 9pm he is a night owl and cannot function before 7am when I have been up for hours.

Sex just hard to find time that both works for us, but seeing 1 time a week like pretty average it makes me feel better about it.

Although the majority of its content falls into what you'd typically see on a porn site blond, blowjob, threesome , two of its videos, "Virtual Sexology I" and "Virtual Sexology II," aim to educate viewers about sexual positions and techniques through a first-person point of view. Viewers are in the front seat, engaging in foreplay and having sex with an encouraging partner. Sometimes, an omniscient female voice-over gives tips, chiming in about the benefits of pelvic exercises or sex toys.

During one scene, when the actress is on her back in a missionary position, the voice cuts in to remind viewers that "pulling the legs back to the chest or close to the ears can create deeper penetration, which can be uncomfortable or pleasurable depending on her body preference. BaDoinkVR isn't exactly alone in its endeavor to educate within the industry. But while the portal functions more like an info center, BaDoinkVR is creating original and engaging video content.

With such operational roadblocks, it's hard for companies to get sexually explicit but educational services off the ground. As such, there's less choice and variety for people looking to learn about sexual behavior, intimacy and well-being. Not only can this be a detriment to individual consumers, but, some would argue, to society as a whole. You're in luck! A new NSFW video featuring footage from multiple MRI scans affords a remarkable glimpse inside human bodies as they engage in intimate activities ranging from a French kiss to, yes, full-bore coitus.

MRI scanners create still and, in this case, moving images with the help of strong magnetic fields that interact with protons inside our bodies.
