45 and usually 5 to 7 per week. One less than a 1/2 hour ago. Wife and I thankfully have a great sex life. She still makes me melt every time I look at her. I feel as if I am the luckiest man in the world. I always feel wanted and needed. Life is good, better than I deserve!

Committed male over 40. Actually, over 60.

Probably averaging about 10/week.

Wow, this must be a sensitive topic for many women. The usual ratio of female respondants is around 45 % as in the telephone calls poll I recently posted, but at present with 83 votes, only 13 females have responded. That means two out of three female posters who would normally vote elected to refrain from voting.

That'sa incredible ! Its only two for me at 61 years of age. It used to be at a minimum twice a day. Next time I see a doctor, I'm going to find out whats wrong with me. I worry that if I don't use it I lose it. Perhaps I need testosterone supplementation.

You can either try supplements or lying on anonymous polls. Either one should work just as well.

I get testosterone shots, for a variety of reasons. I haven't noticed any effect whatsoever, but my doctor says I need it anyway.

And it has nothing to do with orgasms or their frequency.

That is very interesting. I am on TRT (Testerone Replacement Therapy) after my body stopped making testosterone due to chronic narcotic use for pain. I will agree that testosterone really has nothing to do with having an orgasm, it certainly has almost everything to do with desire.

When my body stopped producing it I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I had zero sex drive. There could have been a naked NFL cheerleading team in front of me and I would have rather watched a movie. Once I started taking the shots my desire not only returned, but was as strong as when I was a teenager. My wife is a lucky woman!

I think the Pollster aimed too low with the highest number of times per week being "7+". Probably should have been 0, 1-4, 5-10, 11-14, 15+.

On my days off, I have about 3 or 4 a day. On working days, its usually 1 at the most.

I have issues coming with self-stimulation. Mental block. So it varies depending on my relationship status.

Committed female 30 years old.

Much, much more than 7- usually two a day when I'm on my own, and that can go up exponentially on date nights.

Once a month is more than zero, less than one per week. Poorly designed poll.

According to a book I'm reading, Sex At Dawn, men who have 5 or more ejaculations a week in their twenties have a much lower rate of prostate cancer throughout their life. Kinda like flushing the lines.

Probably not strictly related but interesting (imo).

I don't know about luckiEST, but unless the rest of your life sucks, for the most part, I would agree.

Me: over 40, committed, right around 7 per week... but after reading this poll & thread I'm wondering if I should double it. So thanks!

I know an older single guy whose doctor was concerned about his prostate and told him quite bluntly, "You really should beat off more."

From the 1973 movie The Devil in Miss Jones

The Wikipedia article:
Quote:
Justine, now a raging sex addict, then finds herself confined to a small room with an impotent, sexually uninterested man who is more interested in catching flies than her. She desperately begs the man for sex, but he simply asks her to be quiet while he listens to the buzzing of his imaginary insects.

Trapped in her own private hell, Miss Jones is left screaming in agony for all eternity, thirsting for a climax she will never achieve by her own means.

I wonder if that was written by a woman who was a virgin when she got married, saw her marriage go sour beyond belief and then faced another year or two of singlehood before attaining any hope of getting the social right to be interested in men again. It sounds familiar.

Though, hopefully someday people will not look askance at me for thinking I may have a future in a relationship with someone that respects me as a human being and who is interested in regular (but still consensual) sex. I'm sure that my dreams of future happiness will offend some here, but I have them nonetheless.

Someday, I may once again join the seven-a-week club.
