Have you ever wondered if how much you have or want to have sex is “normal”? If the answer is “yes” then you are not alone – it is one of the questions Dr. Valeria and I hear most often in our practices.

After all, for better or worse, we often can’t help but compare ourselves to others around us and try to figure out where we fall. But what is normal according to actual data? And what should you do if you don’t seem to match it or feel that there is a mismatch between you and your sexual partner(s)?
