Your sex life may not be so different from those around you.

Sex is always changing, and in this, so are sex studies. The latest information seems to change day to day, but the fascination with sex in general won't be fading any time soon.

Read through the following three sex studies for a peek into the lives of other couples' bedrooms, and maybe even your own.

How much sex is everyone really having?

  • According to a survey conducted by the Irish Times, 14 percent of couples in Ireland are having sex three or more times a week. The study also found that 44 percent of participants are having sex at least once a week, while people between the ages of 25 and 34 are the most sexually active throughout the country.

Sleep sex is becoming more prevalent in the bedroom.

  • According to a study conducted by Guy Meadows of The Sleep School and Bensons for Beds, Britain's leading bed supplier, one in 10 British people suffer from sexomnia. This condition is characterized by people engaging in sexual activity during sleep. The study looked at the sleeping habits of 13,000 adults across Britain and found that people who suffer from this engaged in sexual dreams, masturbation and even intercourse. 

Having sex, despite a low libido, can actually better a relationship.

  • According to a study published in The Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, caring about your partner's pleasure, even when you're not exactly in the mood can improve a relationship. This doesn't mean to have sex when you don't want to, but rather, to look at the relationship as a whole and see where a disconnect may be developing, to fix it before it does.
