A new study from Munich's Ludwig Maximilian University found that couples reach their sexual satisfaction peak after one year together, Telegraph* reports.
The study, titled "Does Sexual Satisfaction Change With Relationship Duration?," asked 3,000 people between ages 25 and 41 to rank their sex lives and found that across the board, people were happiest with their sexual relationship a year in and then it started to decline.
Researchers think this peak happens at one year because the couple spent the last year learning what each other liked and wanted in bed, leading to the peak when they'd "become familiar with each other's sexual preferences and thus improve their skills in order to pleasure each other."
While the study didn't find that having kids took a toll on people's sex lives (which is interesting because so often in other studies, it's said that it has a major effect on it), the study did find that couples that have an increase in fighting tend to have less sexual activity. Go figure.
