American adults had sex about nine fewer times per year in the early 2010s compared to the late 1990s
This was partially due to the higher percentage of unpartnered individuals, who have sex less frequently on average.
Partially? What about married couples?
Sexual frequency declined among the partnered (married or living together) but stayed steady among the unpartnered, reducing the marital/partnered advantage for sexual frequency.
Declines in sexual frequency were similar across gender, race, region, educational level, and work status and were largest among those in their 50s, those with school-age children, and those who did not watch pornography.
We’re doing it less. Maybe because we’re doing it wrong. Or, we’re holding it wrong.
