Translation of Genesis 5:3

Adam lived 130 years and gave birth in his likeness and as his image and called his name Seth.

Adam (them doing a third time)

Comments

Does this mean that Adam and Eve had sex so seldom (approx once in a hundred years)? If yes, why?

Does "in his likeness and as his image" mean that Seth was a clone of Adam? It is quite possible, if Eve had the same genetics as Adam (except of no Y chromosome).
