I don't want or need it at all. I live with my gorgeous, amazing 16 y.o. daughter and her 15 y.o. bf and I am happy that they seem have a great sex life but to be totally honest I work really hard -- and sometimes crazy hours -- as a nurse manager and I just don't have the slightest interest in men or sex at the moment. I have an older daughter who no longer lives me me, but we're in touch constantly. After my job, focusing on my daughters, and being something of a gourmet cook, that's enough. We're not rich but we live comfortably and well within our means, and given what I read about every day, that's spot-on for me.

I think yes u do need it not just cause it feels good but its cause sex in a relationship is so important cause so much of it filters into your relationship communication closeness and not to mention it helps with stress and relaxes u me a b d hubby have sex everyday if we can

I'm not majorly bothered. There's other ways to be intimate and keep the relationship alive without having sex everyday. We'll do it when we feel like it, but if one of us is too tired or whatever, then it's not the end of the world. Sex isn't the be all and end all! :)









the orgasim is greater if you dont have it as often!  The men appreciate YOU more if you have it once in a while due to that fact.












Oh that's not true lol. Arousal is biologically greater the more frequent your sex life is, and men definately appreciate a women having multiple orgasms daily, especially with a busy family life. I know we both always had a high drive, but the older we get and the more kids (5 so far) we have (more responsibilities), the better the sex and higher the drive and we both appreciate that time daily because we make time for it and still get in the mood that often 20+ yrs later :-)









I think is more than biological GOOD sex is totally emotional. We go through waves sometimes we can't keep our hands off each other and we will even drive home during lunch for it. When he's out of town and comes back it's like WOW! If your in tune with the person you know what to grab touch etc. sex will always be good no matter how long in between. 





Exactly Alicia! I may not feel the need the need for it everyday, but when we do it.....well!!!! (wow!)



If you're in tune with your partner, if you have other ways of being intimate if one of you isn't the mood, then as you say, the sex will be good no matter how long it's been! :)

i agree with Amy! feels much better if its been a while plus you have a better orgasm that said my partner only wants sex about once every week and a half and since we are trying for our second child we have to make sure we do it when im ovulating and it puts stress on us cause we are not in the mood lol. i just do it myself in between when i feel like it but if i dont the sex is very awesome when it happens :)

For me it is not a need, i just really enjoy it. My husband works one week on one week off ( when he is working we dont see him at all for the full week) so when he is home we are very glad to have each other close again. We neither one want sex every day that he is home, but one, two, or three times in a week is nice. Although if something were to happen to him and he died or was unable to have sex, i could live without it. I have no desire to share that part of me with anyone else.

Need it but not as often as I did in the past. I've exchange quantity for QUALITY. Definitely couldn't do completely without.

I have 8 kids in the house and we still find time to have sex and I wouldn't have it any other way. You have to make time for you and your spouse, cuz no one else will.

We have a college-aged teen, a preteen and 3 toddlers, career and hubby who works 80+ hr wks, and we still make time for sex everyday. That is our reward after a long day, and we easily make time for it. That is a reward, not a chore! I would be very upset if we lost that time together. It releases stress and keeps you young :-)

Even with a toddler and my husband working overtime we love our sex life. It's an important thing in a good mariage.

Hey Ive got a toddler, two teenagers, a grown up daughter, a granddaughter and a tiring job...I dont have the time or energy for sex!

I can very easily live without it, right now at any rate! Ill let you know if that changes any time soon. :)
