Too Much Sex? Is 300 Times A Year Unrealistic?

How many times is too many when it comes to sex?

That's the question readers considered Thursday after reading Marcy Miller's recent HuffPost blog on post-divorce dating. The piece detailed a series of dates Miller went on with a man named Fred, a "tall, fit, intelligent and interesting" 60-something billed as the "catch of the century" by those who know him.

Miller and her date were getting on famously until date number three, when Fred casually asked her if she liked sex. When she said "sure," he proceeded to let her know that he did, too -- quite a bit, in fact. According to Miller, Fred expects to do the deed 300 times a year. To put that in perspective, the average American has sex 151 times a year, according to a 2012 survey by Trojan condoms. (Not exactly the Kinsey Reports, we know, but we'll assume the latex company knows what they're talking about).

Miller was taken aback at Fred's expectations. Some of our readers agreed and had a hard time believing that a man in his 60s could possibly have sex that frequently. But other commenters said the Fred's quota was entirely reasonable, even pulling from their own sexual experience to defend the man's sexual appetite.

What do you think: Is expecting to do the deed 300 times a year unrealistic? Check out the debate below to see what both sides had to say, then let us know who you agree with in the comments.
