Don’t get me wrong: Sex is a normal, healthy, fun part of adult life. In fact, sexual attraction and sexual compatibility are the basis of many successful relationships.
Thinking with our nether regions may be natural, but continually acting on those thoughts while the laundry piles up could be the sign of a problem. So how much sex is ideal, and how much is too much?
Research suggests that, for people in relationships, having sex is linked to greater well-being and happiness. But more doesn’t equate with better. People having sex twice a week aren’t any happier than people having it once a week. (Don’t worry, they’re not less happy either.)
Which leads to the question: Is it possible that doing the deed too much can interfere with a happy, healthy life?
