On a scale of 1 to 5, please rate the importance of sex in your relationship - 5 being it's the glue that holds you together and you can't get enough, 1 being you'd rather clip your toenails.

Also, please specify your gender and frequency of sex with your partner.

I am a female in her forties, divorced, with one child.

4, Extremely Important But I Can Be Patient. 

I have sex once to twice a week, not including masturbation. Sex isn't just intercourse, you know. It may just be watching porn together or other things.

Hi, Im female ,married. I would say sex is quite important in our relationship, i would give it a 3. But i definitely enjoy non sex stuff too. My husband wants sex more than me but we probably have it about 2-3 times a week and if im not really feeling up for it i will give him oral.

But we are LDR as well - but when we do spend longer periods of time together, we seem to be at it more. We also both came out of horrible relationships, so now being with someone way more compatible is a joy.

I am a 49 year old married man without children. My wife and I get it on about 8-10 times a month. I'd rank sex 4.5 out of 5, an essential part of a relationship, since my desires are still pretty strong.
