There is likely a significant cohort of married men not getting any nookie atHe asserts that the GSS should be "taken with a grain of salt" when it comes to human sexual behavior. That's his prerogative, but for those who put more stake in large scale data than in anecdote, fewer than 1% of married men aged 22-36 report being in sexless marriages (no activity over the last year). Roissy's probably correct in assuming that the married man who has sex nearly 30 times a week (4 times a day) is even rarer than that. The best we can do with the GSS is observe that one in ten (9.6%) report having sex four or more times per week.
all and a smaller minority of rabid sex fiends banging their hot wives four
times a day. Skew happens.

What about those guys who are able to successfully play the field? In addition to variety, do they also enjoy greater frequency? Among those aged 22-36, sexual frequency* for married men (4.15) is marginally higher than it is for unmarried men who have racked up double-digit counts (4.10).
Getting married will tend to net you about the same amount of snatch time as a go getter gets. The treasure chest won't be clamped shut, though your prize won't glitter as much.
GSS variables used: YEAR(2000-2008), AGE(22-36), SEX(1), MARITAL(1)(2-5), NUMWOMEN(10-250)
* Responses are by range for sexual activity over the past 12 months, from no sex at all on the low end (corresponding to a 0), to 4+ times per week on the high end (corresponding to a 6).
