Interesting, V-E-R-Y Interesting.
Ever worry you're having too much sex? Ha ha, yeah us neither but we do often worry if we're having enough sex.
We mean, we've all had a dry spell. You know when you genuinely consider changing your relationship status on Facebook to 'in a relationship with my shower head'. But we've also experienced our early twenties when, well, let's just say...things weren't so dry.
Well, it turns out how old you are actually has an effect on your sex life. According to a recent study by the Kinsey Institute of Sex, Reproduction and Gender, there is a specific amount of times you should be hitting the sheets.
Surprise, surprise! millennials win again. The survey found that people who reached young adulthood around the year 2000, have the most sex out of us all. It also revealed that 18 to 29-year-olds should engage in some sort of sexual activity approximately 112 times a year...which works out as twice as a week. Yikes!
In a similar study conducted by researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, they discovered that students who have intercourse once or twice a week had higher levels of antibodies compared to those who didn't.
Don't fit under the millennial category? Well, it turns out 30 to 39-year-olds should have sex 8 times a year which is roughly 1.6 times a week. (Good luck working what a 6th of sex works out as!)
As for the next age bracket, people who are aged between 40 and 49 have sex an average of 69 times a year which works out as 1.3 times a week...again, good luck figuring that out.
Married? The study also found that 45 per cent of married couples sleep together serveral times a year. 34 per cent have it two or three times a week while 13 per cent only have sex once or twice a year.
This, of course, is merely just a suggestion and however many times you choose or not choose to have sex is completely up to you.
