Abstract

The problem of the frequency of sexual intercourses in permanent couples is investigated for the first time with a purely conceptual model. The model, based on a few axioms involving very simple notions like sexual appetite and erotic potential, is composed of two ordinary differential equations which are exactly the same than those proposed almost one century ago in epidemiology. The model can be used to discuss the possibility of estimating strategic parameters from real data, as well as to criticize the rule of "the beans in the yar" proposed in 1970 by David Martin in The Journal of Sex Research.
