There were at least three healthy physical relationships in BSG, all 
between married couples: Athena/Helo, Bill/Laura, and Galen/Callie. As 
for Ellen/Saul - well, as long as they stayed together they were fine, 
their problem was not having enough sex to suit Ellen.

IIRC Baltaar failed to have sex in most of the episodes with Pegasus Six 
and IIRC during the mutiny. The rest of the time would be about half and 
half - of course, half of 73 episodes is still a lot of sex for one farm
