Professor Spiegelhalter will look at the maths and stats of sex: from what people get up to (or say they get up to), to the chances of getting pregnant, to the proportions of couples in history who had to get married. How many people got the pox? How many prostitutes were there in Victorian London, and how do we know? And are there more conceptions at certain times of year, and do they really rise in power cuts and after successful football matches?
