Is His Sex Drive Is In Overdrive?
It’s pretty common for wive’s to think their husband wants sex too often. In fact, I’d say this is the case for pretty much every marriage other than those where the wife wants more sex.
Just how much sex does the average man “need”? I will attempt to answer that, but frankly, I find it the wrong question. I think the right question is “how much sex does the average man want?”
Over the last few years, there have been a number of studies that show a correlation between frequent ejaculation and a lower risk of prostate cancer. The early studies were iffy, but several of the most recent are rock solid. It looks like a man who ejaculates about 5 times a week from age 20 to age 50 has a 25% to 35% lower chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer by the age of 70. I think that shows a need. (For a good recent study on this, see here.)
We just finished a survey entitled Sexual Frequency: Desired and Actual that asked men and women how often they would like to have sex. For men under the age of 55, the most common answer was “4 or 5 times a week” – which is right in line with the “need” level I suggested above. Most of the rest of the men fell either side of that, at 2-3 or 6-7 times a week.
It probably seems like a lot to some women, but if you do something with/for him all but two days a week you should have a very happy, and healthy, husband.
