With Valentine’s Day coming up, love and romance is on the brain… and of course, sex!

Are you having enough sex?  Are you satisfied with your sex life?

We did some digging to find out how others are doing in the sex department.

In 2010, Durex conducted a survey to which 44% responded that they “are fully satisfied with their sex lives.”

The study found that:

Pretty interesting sex statistics, excuse me – married sex life stats.

Kids, work, stress, lack of sleep… this sounds about right?  I asked some of our own readers to respond anonymously to the question, “how is your sex life?”

Here are some of the responses:

“My husband and I have sex about once a week. To be honest, most of the time I don’t feel like it, I would rather sleep. Our daughter is 17 months old and really wears me out.”

“Sex life? What sex life? After having baby number two I have no desire what so ever. And to make matters worse the less sex my husband and I have the more we fight! We “get around to it” about once a month and that is just not good at all. Plus I’m a Passion Parties Consultant! I have everything I need to get my mojo back and spice things up but after feeding, cleaning, dealing with crying, not getting a shower, diaper changing, dealing with whining from my oldest sex is the LAST think I want! My husband jokes that he has to tie me down just to get me going! No joke. He should do that more often!”


“Honestly, with both girls, it dropped to nil, nada, don’t dare touch me, until the baby was about a year, then all of a sudden something kicked in and started having sex more in a week than in three months previous. What was also surprising is it got better-wayyyy better. Not all the time of course-we all have colds now and are pretty burnt, but when we do it, it just feels…easier to climax.”

“We do not have sex. Sadly. I can count the number of times we had it last year. She never takes the time.  Makes me bitter, and in my mind justifies me looking elsewhere for intimacy.”

“It’s mediocre and it is all my fault. I am tired most of the time. Don’t feel sexy at all (even though my husband tells me I am all the time). At night I just want to crawl in bed and sleep. I had a two week holiday and things were much better. I blame work for making me so tired.”



Its seems to be that so many are not having enough sex because they are tired.  Here are some articles to help get your sex life back in gear!
