For those of you who are sexually active, how often do you have sex per week, and how long have you been with your partners? I've been with my girlfriend for 7 months and there's been a terribly dramatic decrease in the amount of sex we're having...from 3-4 times per week to about 2 times per MONTH. Girls, am I doing something wrong?

If I said 27 times a week, you'd probably feel terribly inadequate. If I said once a month, you might feel better, but it wouldn't actually change anything. Miz Scarlet has given you good advice in your other post on this, and we ask that users not make posts similar or identical to ones they've already made, so please don't do so again.

Milke, with an L, Mrs BD to you, RATS, TMNTP, MF, CWCD, WAOTA

Yeah i'm with u psteez! I have been going out wit my bf for a year and a half and we do it at least 2 times a month if that! it used to be at least 3 times a week. The thing is that i am the one that wants it most of the time and he doesn't. I think it comes down to if we have time and privacy cos we both work full time.

None of what anyone here is going to tell you about their personal sex lives and how often they have sex is going to make a valid point to convince your girlfriend into having sex more often...just a little FYI in case that was your motivation for this.

Everyone is different, every relationship is different. I could tell you that I've been dating my boyfriend a year and a half and we have sex at least 3 times a week, but that could only be because the sex is new. I could also tell you that i have a friends that have been dating for three years and they say that they have sex 3 to 4 times a week...maybe because they only started having sex a few months earlier, or maybe they've been having sex for the past 2 years that way...who knows?

It's like Miz S told you in your other post...things can dwindle after awhile, the newness fades, it happens. Sometimes you can go into a dull period when you're not having sex so much, and then other times you can be going through a period where you could be having sex every day or every other day, its the way a relationship goes sometimes.

Maybe there are things that are stressing your girlfriend out that she hasnt been able to tell you...Or maybe she's on the pill and you're both realizing that the pill can decrease your sex drive a bit...who knows?

There could be a million different reasons behind it...but like i said before, if you're planning on taking stats to convince your girlfriend to have sex more often, nothing any of us say here is going to make a valid enough point to do that. You could very well just be curious and wanting to know that its normal, but it just seems to me like thats what you might be after since reading your other posts......
