How to have a happy couple with sex

Most people believe more sex equals greater happiness. But a new study finds there is a magic number when it comes to sex among committed couples and that’s once a week.
Researchers used data from more than 30,000 Americans to look at the relationship between happiness and sexual frequency.
Having sex more often than that doesn’t make us any happier, says the study’s lead author, Amy Muise, a social psychologist and postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto-Mississauga. But if the sex becomes less frequent than weekly, happiness declines.
“Once a week makes sense in some ways because I think many people would still see this as having regular sex,” says Muise.
Muise and her colleagues used data from more than 30,000 Americans to look at the relationship between happiness and sexual frequency. In one of the bigger surprises, results were the same for men and women, for young and old, and for long and short relationships. That’s right: Once a week.
