I was having a late night dinner with my buddy Richard and the GF. We were discussing Bond films and the upcoming release "Spectre." This then naturally delved into observations of the various Bonds over time, but when I said,
"I hope he gets laid this time!"
Richard and the GF looked at me quizzically...
and then thought about it...
and then said, "Ooooohhh yeeeaaaah! You are right!"
Which I was. For if you think about it Daniel Craig is the least-laid James Bond out there. The movies do blur together (especially the last three), but I was under the distinct impression he didn't get laid in the first two (Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace) and only got laid in the last James Bond (Skyfall).
However, vague recollections amongst a handful of movies that blur together does not empirical data make. And so, ever so the vigilant economist, poor ole Cappy took it upon himself to study not only how many women each Bond slept with in each movie, but how many lays there were in total and averages for all the Bonds.
And shucks howdy, look at that, the ole Captain was right. Daniel Craig is the least laid Bond both in terms of number of women frequency in sex. He averages only 1.7 women per movie and only 2 lays per movie (he'd only have 1 and 1.5 respectively if it weren't for Skyfall making him practically a virgin).
However, some other statistics of note.
Roger Moore (unsurprisingly) holds the record for most amount of lays (8) and ties with Sean Connery for most number of women (4).
George Lazenby (named "That Other Guy" because I couldn't remember his name) is the all-time stud of the James Bond actors, luckily starring in the one film that would give him the highest average in both categories.
And if Daniel Craig is even going to finish with an average score, the screenwriters better serve him up a record-breaking 5 women and 9 lays in the next two movies.
Keep a notch count for the guy when Spectre comes out this fall.
