An excellent article, Tara. One might also add that if the couple is healthy thanks to regular exercise and a good diet, one’s sexual appetite and capacity increases dramatically. As 86% of US citizens are overweight and largely indolent, it’s actually surprising that the (self-reported) average is as high as once a week. Reality is likely different, with a rather lower frequency and doubtless a rather low satisfaction baseline too.
