Since I'm a complete workaholic, I have a hard time justifying spending time on things that aren't work to myself. One thing I don't feel guilty about, though, is taking the time to have sex regularly. There are so many excellent reasons to have sex, and we don't even need one in the first place, since it feels good and it ain't hurting no one.
The exact ideal will vary from couple to couple (I'd personally find twice a week too little), but it seems that on average, many couples aren't having as much sex as is recommended. A University of Kentucky survey found that 57.8 percent are having sex once a week or more, which means over two in five are falling short of that recommendation.
Obviously, if you're perfectly satisfied with having less sex than average, don't fix what ain't broken. But if you'd like more sex in your life, here are some of the most compelling reasons to go for it.
