It sounds like there are two issues here: firstly the fact that some men feel the need to have sexual release on a daily basis, and secondly, that your partner lies about his use of the internet for sexual release (I expect using porn).
To respond to the first issue: men do not NEED to have sex on a daily basis. Many men have enough sexual drive that they might be ABLE to have sex everyday, but it is not likely that this is a "need'. If this is happening, it could mean several things; firstly that he is not used to the idea that he can survive without sexual relief, and can tolerate waiting even up to three or four days without excessive irritability if he does not have sexual relief. Some men go for much much longer periods of time without sex or any form of sexual relief. However, it may be that your partner's 'need' to relief himself sexually is about something other than sexual tension - some men find sex to be a stress reliever, or that it helps them to feel better about themselves for some other emotional reason.
In response to the second issue: I would imagine that he lies to you because either he feels guilty about doing what he is doing and doesn't want to admit it to himself nevermind you, and/or because he expects that you will be angry/upset with him if he admitted it. Use of the internet for porn is becoming frighteningly common and I have great concerns about what people are accessing on the net that they might never have looked for using other types of pornography. It may be that your partner is using the net in a limited/controlled way, but if he uses it for longer and longer times, and accesses sites which are either illegal or make it difficult for him to enjoy 'real life' sex, he may be going down a sexual addiction route for which he may need professional support. Don't jump to any conclusions, but do discuss with him your worries and also make it clear what your expectations are in the relationship (some people are content for their partner to look at porn, some aren't).
