A friend sent the following email:

Okay, this one is a good one!! Trust me!S E X MATHEMATICS

This really works!


This is pretty clever.


It takes less than a minute.

Work this out as you read.

Be sure you don’t read the bottom until you’ve worked it out!

This is not one of those waste of time things, it’s fun.

  1. .First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have s e x. (try for more than once but less than 10)
  2. Multiply this number by 2 (Just to be bold)
  3. NOW….Add 5.
  4. Multiply it by 50 – I’ll wait while you get the calculator………..
  5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1752….If you haven’t, add 1751………
  6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number . The first digit of this was your original number ( i.e., how many times you want to have s e x each week). The next two numbers are:

YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it IS!!!!!)

I don’t get it, but it works. Let me know what you think……

Being a math geek, I had to respond:Not that you really wanted to know how it works, but


n = number of times



100n+250 + 1752 (or 1751)


100n+2002 (or 2001) – year (1968 for me)


100n+(this year – birth year if you’ve had your birthday, or last year – birth year if you haven’t)


100n + how old you are.

If you are over 99, this doesn’t work.
