A final study by Dr David Schnarch found that couples have sex once a week, but it is more common to have sex only once or twice a month.The same Newsweek Poll finds that married couples have 6.9 times the amount of sex in a year than unmarried couples.
We know this can be an awkward thing to talk about.
It also produces less communication if one dwells on premarital sex, cheapens the practice traditionally reserved for marriage and, with multiple sexual partners over a number of years, decreases the likelihood of a long term commitment to marriage.
With age, careers, children and natural biological change, often women (and men) will experience a reduction in sexual desire.
But people with a learning disability have the same rights as anyone else to express their sexuality and have personal and sexual relationships if they want to.
We dream of a world where people with a learning disability have the same opportunities in life as everyone else – and that includes the right to a loving relationship. Phone or email the Learning Disability Helpline, which is our advice and support service, for guidance and information about what support we can offer you. This is a place for parents and family carers of people with a learning disability to share experiences, advice and support.
Firstly, I would like to reassure you that those of you who are unmarried can carry on a relationship perfectly well without sex.
