I thought I'd take a closer look at the statistics you provided on how many voice cards you'd written relating to love and sex as compared to the total.

Just say you worked at a regular job for eight hours a day with an hour lunch, a 1/2 hour commute each way and it took you another 1/2 hour to get ready for work. That would give you five and 1/2 hours of free time each day, providing you slept eight hours each night. Using your ratio of 1:6, taking into account all of your waking time, and providing that you have to wait until your free time to devote attention to matters of sex and love, you'd actually be spending about 36 percent of your free time on weekdays on these issues. If you took into account the time you might spend each night reading the paper and microwaving and eating your dinner, the percentage could rise to truly shocking proportions.

So beware the dangers of too much thinking about love and sex.
