Spreadsheet Sex

There's been a lot in the news this week regarding the use of accountancy techniques in order to document sexual activity and the excuses for lack of. Which you can read here for more details.

I think the response to the frustrated spouse should have been based on an economic model. Rather than an internet outing. Something like this perhaps.

Surely such a sexual 'Laffer' chart can only make sense with 'his and hers' curves. You know, to see if the two optimums coincide

@ John M

We are all at some point on the curve.

You just have to hope that you and your partners optimum frequency matches up.

One interesting observation is, in tax there is a long and short run laffer curve.

Generally, for long term revenue maximisation, you want to be to the left, ie the long run curve.

I think this could be applicable in this case too.
