How Much Sex Should You be Having?

It’s a question that has probably plagued you at various points in your life, from your first fumble under a Navajo blanket in your 10th grade girlfriend’s rec room to sneaking a quickie in the laundry room with your wife while your kids are distracted by Moana: “How much sex should I be having, really?” It’s a tough question to answer, especially as you get older. While most of us would obviously like to be spending our lives in a perpetual state of boinkage, the truth is that the responsibilities of work and home life often get in the way, and it gets tougher and tougher to figure out how to slot it in (both literally and figuratively).
That hasn’t, however, stopped sexperts from trying to address this question. Recently, a recirculated study written up by Playboy, among other outlets, attempted to determine, once and for all, how much sex you should be having at various ages. The average frequency of intercourse for people between the ages of 18 and 29 was 112 times a year, or twice a week, while it was 69 times a year (nice) for people between the ages of 40 and 49, and so on and so forth.
But there’s an obvious problem with the “how much sex should you be having?” question: it has an obvious answer. When it comes to the question of “how much sex should you be having,” the answer is: as much as you damn please.

This is far from the first time that researchers have tried to gauge whether there’s a platonic ideal for how often people should be boinking. Research shows that sex tends to drop off after marriage — not due to lack of interest, but due to other life responsibilities, like having kids, interfering with sexual activity. (When you’re frantically Googling “how to remove smeared poop from drywall” at 3 a.m. while your wild-eyed, sleep-deprived wife stalks around like Claire Danes in Homeland, sex is probably the last thing on your mind.)
These responsibilities aside, other studies have indicated that there’s a specific number of times you should be having sex per week, with one study indicating that once a week is enough to achieve happiness (though what type of happiness — marital? personal? A general sense of the type of spiritual enlightenment embodied by fitness gurus on Instagram and people who don’t wear shoes at 7-Eleven? — is unclear.)
