A satisfying sexuality, regardless of its frequency, is part of a person’s global health. According to a survey conducted in 2018, most Italian respondents qualified their sexual life positively. Indeed, a quarter of respondents qualified their sex life as being active and satisfying, whereas a third of respondents described it as good, although stating there was room for improvement. On the other hand, approximately a third of Italian respondents defined their sexual life negatively.
Frequency of sexual relations varies greatly from one another, but also with factors such as age, marital status, or the environment in which someone lives. Although there is no ideal frequency for such a subjective matter, one’s satisfaction with their sexual frequency is important to address. According to a survey conducted in 2019, younger Italian respondents reported being more satisfied with the frequency of their sexual relations than older respondents. Indeed, over half of respondents aged 18 to 25 years old were satisfied with the frequency of their sexual life, whereas half of the respondents aged 36 to 40 years old wished to have more sex.
How many sex partners?
According to a survey conducted in 2018, the number of sexual partners varied from one person to another in Italy. Furthermore, consequent gender differences were found in Italians aged 18 to 40 years old. Indeed, whilst most women of this age stated to have had only one sexual partner in their lifetime, most men of this age stated to have more than ten sexual partners. However, approximately one out of two Italian men stated to have had one to three sexual partners in their life.
