Researchers also found that married people have the most sex, reporting engaging in sexual activity in the previous four weeks more frequently than single people. There has also been a gradual shift to delay marriage, even in developing countries.

Heh. Every time my mother calls our house, she seems to worry that she may be interupting DH and I while having sex. She always says, "Um, I'm not ah, calling at a bad time, am I?"

A friend of mine used to answer the phone while having sex. And if the caller asked what she was doing, she'd tell them!

It was usually our shyest and most easily-embarrassed mutual friend on the other end of the line, too.

My Mom does that too.
Plus, if I ever say "We were running late this morning," that's greeted with a grin, a wink, and an "Oh, you were, were you? That's the way, kids! Hubba hubba!"

Does having sex with one self count? Except for that one quicky last week, DW and I hadnt had much "interaction in the netherregions" for close to half a year. (TMI: While pregnant she got bad cramps when she got "ready to rumble" and after the birth.. well.. we all know how that is, especially when your BIL is living with you now and then as well.)

The results for the study are very interesting. If nothing else, now I have a good link to counteract those "kids today have sex younger and younger" harangues.

On a personal note, one of the funniest compliments I have ever received was when an acquaintance exclaimed, "you guys are f*ckers!" with admiration in his voice. Mr S and I became an inspiration to this guy and a few others after someone found out why Mr S and I snuck off during a friend's wedding reception.

I've been trying to find a complete breakdown of the results, because the local news reported on this a few days ago and said that while married people reported the most sexual activity, married women were actually the most likely to contract an STD. So maybe married people aren't have sex with their spouses.

The funny thing is, it's not a big *gasp* that married people have sex... just that they have sex more frequently than single people. And that does make me raise my eyebrows a bit.

Of course... my situation is a tad on the unique side. We just had our 2nd child about 5.5 months ago and there will NOT be a 3rd (barring Divine Intervention)... so, since hubby's not fond of condoms (and neither am I for that matter), I've told him that the nookie is being put on hold until he gets the old snipperoo.

Purple--...which doesn't seem to be happenning any time soon...-Iguana

Be warned: even after a man gets snipped, a couple has to use protection for about a month or two; the ducts have to be, uh, cleaned out.

Oh, I know that... which is why I've been wanting him to get it taken care of sooner rather than later. But I can totally hold out. Our first child would only sleep if he was in bed with us. That was 14 months of abstinence. I can do that no problem. Dunno if hubby has the same willpower. [Wink]

I swear by vasectomy. My husband has completely stopped barking at cars and humping people's legs since he had it done.
