A second question is how often would you rather have sex?  In my case, we have sex once a week, and I'd rather be having sex about 3 x a week.  I'm in my fifties as is my wife.  She doesn't have the sex drive I have though.  IT's frustrating.  Even though, we've talked about it, she doesn't really care.

My man and I on average 4-6 times a week. Everyone is different, but I think stressors in life make a big difference. Me and my ex husband had it often to but half of that time it was a way to just to be done with it. Where as with my man now I literally want to it all the time, he helps me, takes care of me so I always want to make him happy as he does me. He is very attentive to my needs in and out of the bedroom and that 100% makes me want him more.  What goes on outside the love nest coinsides with what happens in it.

That's interesting Brandy. I am much like your DH out of the bedroom, and while I don't do ANY of it in order to get something in return, it has virtually no effect on my DH. Sometimes I wonder if she is grateful in any way.

To answer the OP, 1-2 times a week, I'd like 2-3.

I am 59 and my DH 64. We have intercourse at least 4 times a week or more and oral sex several more. We also both love mutual masturbation sessions. Work on your wife and show her sex is more than you getting off! Show her the tenderness and love you showed her when you were in your 20's! And for heavens ake don't forget foreplay! I love long extended foreplay sessions as does hubby!

I'm new to these boards as I'm looking for ways to improve my marriage of 8yrs.  I'm 32 and my DH is 41.  We only have sex 1x a wk...he says he's not 20 anymore for his reason.  I would like it at lease 4-5 times a week.

It just amazes me that there are couple who have sex like crazy still...my DH has never been a high sexual person so I know that is why we have sex so little.

I would love to be getting sex than often.  I do treat my nice.  We've talked often about this issue but nothing ever seems to work.

Ha ha, it amazes me that there are men out there that use the excuse of age in regards to sex. I'm well past 40, and I don't see why that would be. I'd have sex twice a day if I had a partner that wanted that.

My hubby and I usually have sex about 4-5 times/week.  I would love to have sex every day, but our schedules just don't allow for that.  I am certainly content with what we are able to manage.  By the way, we are both in our mid-50's.
