Let's have a look:

According to sexologists, women tend to adopt their respective partners' sexual patterns and appetite. 

We have mentioned that a research conducted by the Kinsey Institute of Sex, Reproduction and Gender suggests that people between the ages of 18 and 29 should be having sex 112 times a year, which works out as twice a week on average.

Meaning that in a year, they would engage in sexual activities 54 times. 

Now when it comes to women, sexual activities depends on an individual. 

Take a nympho for instance.


A nympho is a woman with very strong sexual desires.

This individual, according to experts, has sexual desires four to five times a day. 

These may be triggered by lust, pornography or a particular word or phrases. 

A nympho is said to have sex four to five times a week. 

Sexologists also attribute a female's sexual appetite to what she eats. 

Eggs, coke, wine, cheese and listen to this, a packet of Doritos - the sweet chilli flavor, are but some foods and beverages that if eaten and consumed daily, can contribute to a women's sexual appetite.

So take the time to understand her sexual appetite and like the river, go with the flow.
