    the studies made during the 80s claimed a median of 5 and an average around 20.  Which seemed about right to me at the time because all the conservative men I grew up around got hookers when they went on business trips.  One time a selfprofessed prostitute wrote a LTTE to a Toronto paper I read in which she claimed the number of sexual acts she had performed for money during that career as 'approximately 15,700'.

    Now that the pre-Pill generation is dying and the everyone-I-know-got-divorced generation is re-partnered, the average probably won't change too much- the 3-5% extreme outliers probably still account for 90% of the incidents- but the median has to go up.  10 is probably not such a bad guesstimate now that Boomers are the predominant demographic.

    As a straight unmarried guy with a bit of luck in looks and smarts I've had my chances.  I've been considered pretty picky, too.  The tally of outright offers I have turned down is presently in the 120s, and I haven't been on the market much in the past couple of years.

    Renewal, not mere Reform.
