Not Getting Any? Blame Netflix.
After looking under the hood, I realized I am getting more than my fair share, regardless of year. Don't tell the wife, she's all on about fairness.

"Since 1990, according to Telegraph UK, the numerical decrease from an average of 5 times sex per month to an average of 3 times sex per month represents a 40% decrease in sex rates over 20 years. Spieler predicts based on statistical models that should the current trends continue, couples in 2030 can expect to not have sex at all, a “very worrying” drift."
What is it with the need to follow trends to some inane end? No sex?! A few years ago I did particularly well in my investing, and so I prepared a trend line for the prior three years, it went something like 8%, 14%, and then 30%. Let me tell you, I was going to be extremely wealthy in short order based on that trend line. Unfortunately, reality intruded, and my ROI returned to earth.
I have no idea whether these data are remotely valid, or whether Netflix is more interesting than sex, but it is always fun to look under the hood and see how people with loads of book knowledge but little real world experience parse data. The lonely lives of scientists!
Gotta go, the wife just gave me "the look!"
