I don't think they are saying they don't love who they are with by saying they want sex. It's a natural part of being married or being human period. I'd rather have a horn dog over a cold fish..
Finally a reasonable post.

I think Lulu101 should see a doctor before her husband discovers internet porn as a substitute.

My cooking and housework should be enough to satisfy anybody.

I figure I can go the rest of my life without sex. Probably not realistic, but I'd be OK with it if it were.

The original question was not 'who can go the longest without?'

What is the most in one day?

I really don't think women and men are that different. I want sex every day and I'm a woman. I know many of my girl friends have a higher sex drive than their boyfriends.

I honestly don't mean to offend you, but I believe it is women like you who cause the disillusion of marriage in men. It is principally this thought process that keeps me at least from considering marriage with anyone.

You THINK you're doing it justice by asserting that sex is non-essential and that the focus of a healthy marriage should be elsewhere but despite your moral objections, this is actually its greatest folly. SEX IS ESSENTIAL and there is no escaping this fact. It is a biological urge and to deny it is to deny your own humanity. There are inexhaustible bodies of research on this and the consensus is clear: people who have consistent sex on a regular basis (and we're NOT talking a few times a month) lead longer, healthier and happier lives. So how is it not reasonable--or I would even argue, responsible--to suggest that sexual preferences are a key factor in determining long-term romantic compatibility?

I can say right now that if a wife withheld sex from me for any extended period of time without reason, that ring would be off before the next full moon. I see nothing wrong with that. I view sex as nothing other than advantageous to the leading of a healthy life, and am continually annoyed with socially conservative norms that attempt to portray otherwise.

Obviously other people are free to feel differently; the point of my post is to dispel the condemnation of us pro-sex fiends as disloyal, uncaring, unromantic, etc. just because we value sex highly. To me, saying I could go without for a year "standing on my head" is something I hope I'll never even come close to believing. But to each his/her own.

That's not true or fair. If someone wants it more and there is no give-and-take and compromise or willingness to work on things (maybe counseling) or understanding, that can lead to divorce.

It doesn't have to be the actual sex that leads to divorce. The infrequent sex could also just be a symptom of bigger problems.

As to the question, I could probably go forever without sex (though why the heck would I want to?), as long as I could, er, please myself...

And to answer the other question, the most times I've @#$#$'d in one day is 11.
