A group of researchers from the Kinsey Institute for the study of sex conducted a survey which found out how often people of different ages on average have sex. As it turned out, among people under 30 this figure is almost twice higher than among those who are over 40.
The researchers interviewed 1170 adult men and women of different ages and came to the conclusion that in the age of from 18 till 29 years the average number of sexual acts per year is 112 per year, ranging in age from 30 to 39 — 86, and at the age of 40 to 49 — 69 times a year. Thus, the most young study participants on average had sex about two times a week, while more senior, an average of once. Also, experts note that the survey participants with stronger physical health, usually more sex other.
It is worth noting that for the first time about the results of this study it was reported already last year, but now, according to several media, the work of scientists was published in the scientific journal called the Journal of Sex Research.
By the way, at the beginning of this year, it was reported on another study whose authors tried to find out how much sex should a couple to maintain harmonious relationships. As it turned out, the spouses often had sex, the higher opinion they had about their life together, however, this trend was no longer observed when sex more than once a week. Although many participants conducted by specialists of the survey admitted that they would like to have sex “more often than now”, in fact for the happiness in family life is to most people, a weekly intimacy, while more frequent sex additional effect in this respect have not.
Recently, the media almost simultaneously reported on two studies on the sex. The authors of one of them came to the conclusion that “sex without obligations” has advantages over “romance” because it effectively increases the capacity of man. Other experts, by contrast, said that it was the romantic component of intimate relations is necessary for both men and women to produce maximum pleasure from intimacy.
