Researchers at Happify compiled research from several surveys of over 16,000 people. In addition to finding that once-a-week sex is awesome for your own mood, they also looked at how getting it on affects your relationship satisfaction. And it turns out, the happiest couples have sex two to three times a week. So while you shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t judge your own bliss based on the number of times youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve gotten busy since Sunday, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still a great reason to get it on today.
One thing to note: These correlations donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t necessarily prove that sex is making them more blissful. It may be that happy people and satisfied couples just get it on more often. But either way, it confirms the general belief that a good mood and a good orgasm often go hand in hand.
