Vroue kla dikwels oor hulhulle manlike seksmaats se gebrek aan seksuele spontaniteit. ’n Afname in seksuele aktiwiteit onder hierdie vroue kan wees omdat hulle glo hulle is nie meer aantreklik nie of omdat hulle maats se gesondheidsprobleme seksuele omgang belemmer.<ref name="Montemurro">{{cite book| author = Beth Montemurro|title =Deserving Desire: Women's Stories of Sexual Evolution|publisher = Rutgers University Press | year = 2014 | page = 169 | accessdate = 9 Desember 2014 |isbn = 978-0813573069| url =https://books.google.com/books?id=1XVYBQAAQBAJ&pg=PT169}}</ref> Sommige vroue sê hulle grootste seksuele bevrediging kom uit seks met iemand met wie hulle ’n emosionale band het, eerder as net danksy ’n orgasme.<ref name="Wincze"/><ref name="Gurian">{{cite book| author = Michael Gurian|title =The Wonder of Aging: A New Approach to Embracing Life After Fifty|publisher = Simon & Schuster | year = 2013 | page = 178 | accessdate = 9 Desember 2014 |isbn = 978-1476706719| url =https://books.google.com/books?id=XyS5ebuXJWgC&pg=PT178}}</ref> Wat egskeiding betref, is vroue meer geneig om hulle mans te verlaat weens ontrouheid as hulle in ’n huwelik met min samewerking of baie konfilk is.<ref name="Fine"/>
 
Navorsing wys ook paartjies wat nie getroud is nie, maar saamwoon, het meer seks as getroude paartjies en is meer geneig om seks buite die verhouding te hê; dit kan wees as gevolg van die "wittebrood-effek" (die nuwigheid om seks met ’n maat te hê), aangesien seks gewoonlik al hoe minder beoefen word hoe langer ’n paartjie getroud is. Getroude paartjies het seks gemiddeld een of twee keer per week, of sowat ses tot sewe keer per maand.<ref name="Strong2">{{cite book| author = Bryan Strong| author2 = Theodore Cohen|title =The Marriage and Family Experience: Intimate Relationships in a Changing Society|publisher = Cengage Learning | year = 2013 | page = 212 | accessdate = 9 Desember 2014 |isbn =978-1285531892| url =https://books.google.com/books?id=6ZIWAAAAQBAJ&pg=PT237}}</ref> Ouer mense het gewoonlik ook minder seks as jong mense.<ref name="Strong2"/>

Volgens die psigiater Lynn Ponton het alle tieners ’n sekslewe, of hulle seks met ander, met hulleself of skynbaar geen seks het nie. Deur tieners se seksualiteit as ’n potensieel positiewe ervaring te beskou, eerder as iets inherent gevaarliks, kan jong mense gehelp word om gesonder patrone te ontwikkel en positiewer keuses oor seksuele aktiwiteit te maak.<ref name="sex lives3" /> Volgens sommige navorsers kan langtermyn- romatieseromantiese verbindings tieners die vermoë help ontwikkel om later in hulle lewe verhoudings van goeie gehalte hê.<ref>Madsen S., Collins W.

==Etiese, godsdienstige en wetlike sienings==
Sommige lande beskou enige seks met ’n persoon met onvoldoende verstandelike vermoëns om toestemming te gee, ongeag ouderdom, as verkragting.<ref>{{cite journal |last=Reed|first=E.

* [[Boeddhisme|Boeddhistiese]] etiek, in sy algemeenste formulering, reken ’n mens behoort nie sensuele plesier na te streef nie, want dit hou jou gebonde aan die siklus van geboorte en die dood, [[samsara]], en keer dat jy [[nirwana]] bereik. Aangesien Boeddhistiese [[monnik]]e heeltemal oorgehaal is om hierdie doel te bereik, bly hulle selibaat. Ander monastiese opleidingsreëls verbied masturbasie, wellustige aanraking en gesprekke met mense van die teenoorgestelde geslag, en ander vorme van seksuele aktiwiteit. Boeddhistiese niegeestelikes onderneem die [[Vyf Voorskrifte]], waarvan die derde een is om seksuele wangedrag te vermy, en dus nie ander leed aan te doen met jou seksuele gedrag nie. Owerspel is die duidelikste oortreding van die voorskrif. Ander is om seks met ’n verloofde vrou te hê of iemand wat nog deur ’n familielid beskerm word, asook verkragting en bloedskande.<ref>Harvey, Peter. ''An Introduction to Buddhist Ethics: Foundations, Values and Issues''. Cambridge, 2000: 71-72.</ref> Boeddhistiese geskrifte bevat geen ander reëls of aanbevelings vir niegeestelikes wat betref masturbasie, homoseksualiteit en voorbehoedmiddels nie.

* In die [[Baha’i]]geloof word seks net tussen ’n man en vrou toegelaat.<ref>Kenneth E. Bowers. God Speaks Again: An Introduction to the Baha'i Faith. (2004) Baha'i Publishing. {{ISBN|1-931847-12-6}}</ref>
* Aanhangers van [[Wicca]] leer "om die Godin se aanbidding in die hart te laat wees wat hom verheug, "omdat alle dade van liefde en plesier die Godin se rituele is." Dit laat aanhangers skynbaar toe om sensualiteit en plesier te verken. Hulle word aangemoedig om verantwoordelik met seks te wees, op watter manier dit ook al plaasvind.<ref>Hans Holzer.

In sommige gevalle word seks tussen twee mense beskou as teen godsdienswette en leerstellings. In baie godsdiensgemeenskappe, soos die Rooms-Katolieke Kerk en [[Mahayana]]-Boeddhisme, word van godsdiensleiers verwag om hulle van seks te onthou sodat hulle hulle volle aandag, energie en lojaliteit aan hulle godsdienspligte kan wy.<ref>William Skudlarek.
