How Much Sex is Too Much?

Is it possible to have too much sex? Learn what’s a healthy amount of sex and what’s not. Don’t label yourself as a nymphomaniac just yet!

Is There Such a Thing?

With the exception of lifestyle extremes, there remains a wide range of sexual appetites that still fall under what would be considered “the healthy zone.” So the question, is how much sex would be too much? Before you go labeling yourself as a nymphomaniac though, check out some factors that will help you gain perspective on healthy sexuality!

“Love with sex can send you both beyond the stars.” – Psychic Alison ext. 9885

Sexual Appetite Varies

Each individual, and each couple, can have different sexual needs and preferences. Are you happy with your sexual lifestyle—either as a single person or within a relationship? If you (and your partner) feel your sexual needs are being met, great! If one of you craves sex significantly more than the other, compromise is the only way for both of you to live within your comfort zone. Communicate your needs to one another, and work on finding a happy medium where you both feel validated and satisfied.

Number One Priority

While sex is natural and wonderful, it has its own unique place on your priority list. If your sex life is getting in the way of everything else, you need to tone it back! Whether it’s work, social life, or eating and sleeping, if you are placing your sexual urges ahead of these things, it’s not good. Maintaining equilibrium in all facets of our lives is necessary for optimum emotional health, and that includes a balanced approach to sex. Are you having problems maintaining an equilibrium? Find your balance by getting a reading from Psychic Tajah ext. 5732.

Never Satisfied

A highly sexualized lifestyle carried to the furthest extreme would be full-blown sexual addiction. Not only would you consistently rate sex as the number one priority in your life, but you would always be looking for your next sexual ‘fix’ and never feel satisfied no matter how many times you have it. If this is where you or your partner is at, your best bet is to seek professional help to determine what emotional needs aren’t being met.

“Live your life fully in every way; then fulfilling sexual desires will naturally happen.” – Psychic Anya Dawn ext. 9179

    i am tired of men being horny all the time im so darn turned off by men wanting to have sex with me… im n an on and off relationship since i was 20…i only had sex with two people in 9 years now im 27 and any guy i date or go out with wants intimacy and i refuse to put out. No man is worthy of me…i don’t get wined and dined noone ever sends me flowers. All i get is the same damn excuses.I am pretty lightskin tall have European features and im black. many ppl think im Egyptian or Dominican but all they want from me is my body. I always respect myself and dress appropriately….some men even complained i come off even old fashion n prudent. Sex has disrupted my life its something that makes me miserable. i wish i found a man who genuinely had real love for me and just doesn’t want to. fuck….

    wow.. how can i even make him understand.we went to counsel.not even counsel will get through to him that, i need to sleep, need a life outside of the bedroom, the day doesnt get start unless im doin my deed to make him happy first thing in the morning, oh and again before my daughter gets home from school at one 45pm, i can make a nice dinner and it will go to waste because i didnt please him one more time.. we dont go anywhere, he has a fit if my girlfriend comes over to see how im doing, Lord forbid my daughter has her friends visit her for 30 minutes.. im a libra and he is a sagittarius. the only thing we truely fight about is his sexual appetite its become more of a damn chore than enjoyable.. i actually feel like thaqts all he wants me for.. im really ready to move on.. thanks for letting me vent..soon i will be puttin on my running shoes and im getting out of this..

    South Sudanese. I am a man of 28 years old and I have never played a sex with any girl. But for this reason, I doubt whether I will produce my own kids for having spent many years without playing sex. I was born in a place where girls were very few and where many of these girls were my relatives. However, I couldn’t find someone to have a sex with. Since our culture doesn’t allow us to have sex with the relative, I remained virgin up to date. I don’t know whether I am doing a right thing. As an addition to what has prevented me, our world is also invaded by HIV/AIDS and the way out is to abstain from sex till married. I feel interested to have sex but no way. If I have my wife later, I will play sex with her thrice a day as per number of meals namely: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and let’s call it a day.

    I typed a long comment, then it disappeared! (BOO! So i am retyping wat i can remember.)
    Long story long, i enjoyed both the article and discussions/comments. Hollie– I’m with ya, gurl– Araanza, & UK Marc– Right on! Beautifully said. Some of the men made me feel sad with their posts; Randy, YES it’s important to have a counselor or friend/confidante that can listen to you/give you advice. LOVE, & nice people are out there. Don’t shut yourself down.

    The main crux of what i noticed with the posts is that some things resonated, repeated comments and feelings, both from the men and women. What does that say?? That no one is the same, and feelings and viewpoints cross the gender-lines. But no one is TYPICAL, we are, afterall unique and different. Culture, religious beliefs and even hormonal changes affects both sexes, and not at typical or predictable times of our lives. STRESS, financial burdens & worrying are all things that can take a toll on relationships, and if your single, this could also affect your comfort and libido too!
    My Story:
    My husband wanted to go to a counselor prior to marriage to complain that we were not having frequent enough sex. He was wanting to have sex with me EVERY TIME we were together (we both lived at our parents homes) & sometimes 2-3 times was what he wanted, making me uncomfortable and sore during and after! He was worried to take that step to marry me. After all, a young woman of 22 years old should have had more desire and zest to have as much sex as him, otherwise I WAS NOT NORMAL in his eyes. So we spoke with one counselor and then another one. When we left those sessions, my husband was pointing his finger at me saying, “Remember what the counselor said…”ya see, ya see, they were agreeing with me…” So anyways, it was unfruitful for a engaged couple to work it out–with finger pointing then going both ways now. I termed my stubborn husband as “An Italian, Scorpio Male ! ) (Please forgive,.,., NOW i am generalizing!)LOL So we tried to work on this and other things that pre-marriage and engaged couples do. We DID get married and i tried to please him in every way. he was GREAT in bed, which was awesome, and almost ALWAYS pleased me every time in every way. He made me loosen up and love him even more, loving the better sex with less relationship friction. What a HONEYMOON, and early few years of marriage! We experimented & experienced LOVE and how to PLAY together, making it FUN. We bought toys, and satin sheets, lotsa Lube (haha) and made eachother satisfied. But around 10 yrs in the marriage, my hubby who was 4.5 yrs. older started to have libido problems from going on and off Anabolic Steroids. he would get massive mood swings and estrogen buildup after he completed his “Roid” cycle. The tremendous drop in libido would last for months, until he got on another cycle. This was unhealthy for HIM, primarily, but unhealthy in many ways for us both. This continued on for years. –So the man who said his wife would never, ever measure up in the bedroom had the tides change on him!!?? At 30 I was truly into my sexual peak; my husband was then 35, and had waning sex drive back then. Things ultimately got worse. Let me say to you, as i do everyone– LOVE is such a wonderful thing. LOVE can overcome all. My husband is now disabled and due to his condition, he cannot have sex (No testosterone does his body produce. after several strokes) I realize there are things he can do for me sexually, I don’t need to explain… but because of his mental condition he does not think along those lines. :0( LOVE <3 (AND my toys/vibrators) have seen me now thru 6-7 yrs of abstinence (unless you count the once or twice in between some of those yrs.) I'M JUST SAYING… i love the MAN, HE LOVES ME, We have a child together and have a great life. SURE, i want more than this; but this is what i have! And that for me is a lot.

    long story, but I have been there and back,.,., and if i can every help anyone, male, female or other who are struggling with their sexuality/and or problems, there are good people out there: counselors, psychiatrists, Marriage & Family counselors, Sex Therapists, support groups, ETC. Don't live with your problems– change them up! That is what God would want you to do.– LOVE :0) Thanks 4 listening!

    I love having sex with my boyfriend. Both of us are passionate about it. When we have sex, we are really connected each other and feel strong love in us. We would have sex every day if we live together. Would it be too much?

    I am over 60 years old, my sex life has vastly improved the last year, I have always consider my partners feelings and am very gentle with them and love cuddling kissing and caressing.
    I have finally learnt that the the journey to a explosive climax is more enjoyable than the final orgasm which can be also mind blowing
    I did suffer with premature ajaculation when younger, this problem was overcome by using Tantric control methods in the last year,
    I can now make love long enough to completely satisfy my partner and make them smile

    Age does not really matter in sex. I am sixty and still going strong, as I have sex 3 to 4 times a week and I feel so good. The most important thing is that my wife is my only partner.

    I just want to say to all the men out there that complain about wives losing their sex drive…….what u don’t understand is women need the emotional connection “outside” the bedroom to make them feel good and want to provide “inside” the bedroom. If you do those small things everyday that show her how important she is to you, and how much you love her, you will get that satisfaction in the bedroom! It all goes hand in hand, and you can’t have one without the other. Don’t just tell her you love her daily, SHOW Her! Help with little stuff around the house, surprise her with flowers once a month, TALK to her about your “softer” emotions and feelings. Let her know and show her that you enjoy her company outside the bedroom too. If she feels super special continuously, she will make you feel special in return. Gotta be fulfilling on ALL levels! Not just the sex end! =)

    SEX ALWAYS BE THE SUBJECT OF CONTINUING DISCUSSION AND ATTRACTION OF BOTH GROUPS LADIES AND MEN FRIEND’S CIRCLE.

    I EXPERIENCED SEX IN DIFFERENT MOOD WITH DIFFERENT LADIES BUT THE REAL OR HEALTHY SEX BE FELT ONLY WITH WIFE PROVIDED WE BOTH SHOULD BE IN OPEN MINDED AND NARROW OTHERWISE NO ONE CAN FEEL HEALTHY SEX WITH ANY ONE.

    It is true. My wife and my sex life are on two totally different planes which results in me not being satisfied. We have addressed this issue with a Therapist but no changes have taken place yet. She has a problem with having sex with me once a week. I am doing everything I can to support her but nothing has worked. Any thoughts?

    What do you do when your mate doesn’t want sex at all and you still have a strong need for it. We’ve had arguments over it and can’t find any middle ground. We even went on a cruise to Mexico, shared the same bed and never touched each other.

    Very interesting! I find the last statement the most eye-opening.. what emotional needs aren’t being met…I’ve put sex before eating & sleeping & occasionally haven’t felt satisfied, but I’ve never thought of it that way.
