This is such an important topic and one that is typically only discussed with your closest girl friends over drinks. I have been happily married for over 17 years. That being said I feel like I get caught up in the constant back and forth where my husband wants to have sex much more than I do. I love my husband and find him very attractive but with my career, family and daily stresses of life, at the end of the day what makes me happy is curling up with a book or watching TV in bed. Don't get me wrong I love and enjoy sex very much but just find that I don't want it as often as my husband. As I talk with my other girlfriends I find they all feel the same way. I have since had my hormones checked to make sure they were not the reason for my lack of libido and have checked out to be OK. I am now working on slowing down a bit, and trying to put a little more effort and thought into this activity(my sex life).

I would like to know if there are any other women out there like me and if you have any suggestions for ways to put a little more excitement into your love life.

Additionally, my husband and I have sex about 2 to 3 times a week, I would be curious to know if that is normal or above normal. I realize that I should not worry about "normal" but I can't help but wonder if our activity is average (or below or above) If any one can help sheds some light on this, I would love to see your post.
