Experts at the Kinsey Institute of Sex, Reproduction and Gender have identified the decades of our lives where we get the most action – and why getting frisky between the sheets is important to our health.

According to the research, millennials – people who reached young adulthood around the year 2000 – have the most sex out of all of us.

Apparently, 18 to 29-year-olds ought to make love approximately 112 times a year – roughly twice a week.

In a separate study, researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that university students who had intercourse once or twice a week had higher levels of antibodies compared to those who had sex less often.

By comparison, 30 to 39-year-olds have sex on average 86 times a year – around 1.6 times per week.

This is perhaps unsurprising given it’s the age many people choose to start a family – there’s nothing like a crying baby to kill the mood.

Next up it’s the frisky 40s, where people aged between 40 and 49 have sex an average of 69 times a year.

The study also revealed 45 per cent of married couples have intercourse several times a month, 34 per cent have it two to three times a week and 13 per cent have it just a few times per year.

Another study conducted by website Your Tango surveyed married couples to discover the ‘minimum, average and ideal’ number of sexual activities per month.

The results showed the minimum was deemed to be once a month, the average once a week and the ideal three to five times per week.

The health benefits of sex were identified as helping lower blood pressure, easing stress and anxiety and aiding sleep at night.

Last week we reported how managing your “sexpectations” is the key to a happy sex life, according to researchers from the University of Toronto.
