It seems like a no-brainer: having sex makes people happy. Psychology studies on happiness have consistently found that of all the activities we do in our daily lives, from shopping to cooking to surfing the internet, people are happiest when they’re having sex. A recent study found that having sex scored number-one not only as the happiest activity we partake in, but also the most pleasurable, meaningful, and engaging activity in our daily lives.
However, due to the physical and mental toll of our busy and stressful lives, it can be hard to fit sex into our schedules. Many couples wish they were having more sex. So, here at Kindara we were curious: how can we make it easier on ourselves to make time for sex? Are there certain days of the week when everything just falls perfectly into place? How about a certain time of year?
We decided to look at our data to answer these questions. Here are some brand new findings about sex pulled from 1.5 million anonymous data points entered by Kindara users over the last 22 months.
Step 1: Plan more vacations and family time.
If your New Year’s Resolution is to make time for more sex with your partner, it may be time to start now. Dedicating time away from work creates ample opportunity to relax and spend time with your significant other. People have significantly more sex during the winter holidays. From Christmas to New Years and Valentine’s Day, these holidays are characterized by frequent sex. Valentine’s Day has the highest frequency of sex, while the holiday season has a higher overall volume of sex compared to the rest of the year. Sounds like a great way to keep warm, right?
