Whatever feels right: This is one of those "no right or wrong answer" questions. Some couples are content with sex every few weeks or less, and others feel something is wrong if they are not having sex several times per week. The important thing is that it feels right to you and your partner. If it does not feel right to one of you, it would be worth talking about and exploring.

As much as U&P want: Varies from couple to couple. Thus as much as you & your patner enjoy & want is normal for you, providing neither of you gets too sore. Good luck.

Openly and honestly: Sex is the ultimate in intimacy for both partners. What one does affects the other. Each must know the other emotionally, physically, mentally, and intimately. Tell the partner you have issues with desire and see if there are things that can be better to re-interest you in sex. There may be medical issues. Get a good check up and needed testing. Counselling may be needed. Good luck!

Good Sexual Life?: If I am misreading your question please ask again. I think it is very common to wonder if we are doing sex right. Many of us do not talk to others about our sexual lives, and thus worry needlessly about it. Many couples learn however to experiment, to read books or watch movies and they try out various activities. I often recommend the book "the joy of sex" as a guide to the norms of sexuality.

Female Sexuality: I write this with respect for your culture. But, here is what i tell my friends and patients. Many women do not have permission to be sexual. They do not know they can be responsible for their bodies and for their needs. It takes practice and time to explore what sexuality means in our lives. I often advise a female manifesto called: "our bodies our selves" you are fine. You just need time.

Normal: We all have our fears and most common is with people we like, as we also like to be liked so we don't want to make any mistakes. Try to have more confidence, and be yourself, be natural. You want to be liked as you are, not as they want you to be. Remember, when they get to know you, you want the you to be the one they like.
