If you had to guess how many minutes the average American couple has sex per week, what would you say? No, really. Bet that number you’re envisioning is correct!
A study by EdenFantasys, an online retailer that focuses on getting everyone “off,” surveyed 2,000 American adults (all in relationships) and found that couples had sex, on average, 69 minutes a week.
According to the data, three percent reported having sex more than 30 times a month, and 12 percent said they have sex for zero minutes per week. Womp womp.
