My manager and I were driving back from Long Beach to San Francisco and we started discussing sex. Well we were actually discussing if there is such a thing as too much sex. Interesting question and quickly answered by most people with, “There’s no such thing as too much sex.” But is that really true?
I started comparing it to working out. When I use to work out 6 days a week for 3 hours a day it seemed great in the beginning. The endorphins would get me going and I just loved the feeling. But after a while I began to notice that I saw less and less progress, the euphoria I use to feel wasn’t there anymore, and the passion I had was quickly disappearing. So I started cutting back and found that 3 days a week for 45 minutes is what worked best, not only for me but also for my clients (I discuss this in detail in my books at www.PetePhysique.com).
Sex, I found, is very much the same. Having sex every day after a while can get boring and you can lose your mojo. When you are really into someone, you want to have sex all the time for hours and hours. If you sustain that long enough, you find you grow bored with that person and even the pleasure of sex. Cutting back to 2 to 3 days a week is much more reasonable, but I do think that 3 is a good number to shoot for. But unlike working out, you should definitely break the 45 minute rule and go as long and hard as you can.
What do you guys think? What does your experience reveal? I would really like to hear from all of you.
