Research finds key to happy relationship? Weekly sex!

Washington D.C: When it comes to a couple’s happiness, an active sex life is important, but they don’t have to go at it like rabbits as a new study has revealed that those who engage in coitus weekly are the happiest.

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 from University of Toronto-Mississauga said, adding that the 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.

This study, based on surveys of more than 30,000 Americans collected over four decades, is the first to find that association is not there after couples report having sex more than once a week on average.

The study was not designed to identify the causal process, so does not tell us whether having sex up to once a week makes couples happier or being in a happy relationship causes people to have more frequent sex (up to once a week).
