A recent study indicates that 16 percent of Australian men want to have sex only once a month or less, as they are too tired and stressed.
More than 300 men in their relationship for at least a year participated in the University of Sydney study about male desires, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
While nearly 50 percent said that they wanted sex every day, a quarter said that they wanted it twice to three times a week and 16 percent said that they wanted to have sex once a month or less, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Researcher and Sexology Australia director Elaine George said that there is a myth that all Australian men want sex 24/7 and if they don't then there is something wrong with their virility and masculinity, however, this new research suggested that for one in every six couples, the woman is likely to have higher desire than men.
46 percent of the men whose interest in sex declined in the past 6 months blamed stress and fatigue for it.
