There's no question that having lots of sex is great -- especially if you're currently enjoying lots of sex in your relationship. The more sex, the better, right? Well, not to ruin the mood or anything, but that's sadly not the case according to a new study. Unfortunately. Regrettably. Lamentably.
A new study published in Social Psychological and Personality Science, suggests that having sex just once a week -- yes, just once in a seven-day period -- is the optimal amount of sexy time for a happy and successful relationship or marriage. In fact, the researchers found that couples doing it every day aren't any happier, which is just crazy talk, really.
“Although more frequent sex is associated with greater happiness, this link was no longer significant at a frequency of more than once a week,” lead researcher, Amy Muise, said in a press release. “Our findings suggest that it’s important to maintain an intimate connection with your partner, but you don’t need to have sex everyday as long as you’re maintaining that connection.”
