I'm not sure about that. I don't know many people who would be willing to pay $1,250 for it...

Do you think people would be willing to pay $500 for it? $50? $10? $5? $1? 50 cents? 1 cent?
Is it relevant how the figure $1250 is arrived at? is it in an advertisement? Is it obtained by combining other figures?

Do you think people would be willing to pay $500 for it? $50? $10? $5? $1? 50 cents? 1 cent? It would be different for each person. There are some people who probably would be willing to pay close to $1250 or even higher, but there are also lots of people who would refuse it even if it were free.
Is it relevant how the figure $1250 is arrived at? Yes is it in an advertisement? No Is it obtained by combining other figures? Yes

is "it" sex? any sort of sexual act? (hoping I don't need to go into details...)

Is $1250 a "per event" charge? (eg, $50 a go, for 25 goes)
If it's "per go", does $1250 pay for 1 go? 2 goes? 3 goes?.... 6250 goes?
a "per time unit" charge? (eg, $5000 a minute for 15 seconds)
If it's "per time unit", does $1250 pay for 1 minute? 5 minutes? 10 minutes? 1 hour? 2 hours? 1 day?

Does someone actually charge $1250 for it?

is "it" sex? Yes! any sort of sexual act? (hoping I don't need to go into details...)

Is $1250 a "per event" charge? (eg, $50 a go, for 25 goes) No, it's $1,250 a go
If it's "per go", does $1250 pay for 1 go? 2 goes? 3 goes?.... 6250 goes? One go
a "per time unit" charge? (eg, $5000 a minute for 15 seconds) Yope
If it's "per time unit", does $1250 pay for 1 minute? 5 minutes? 10 minutes? 1 hour? 2 hours? 1 day? There is no specific length of time the $1250 is supposed to pay for, although a unit of time is involved somehow.

Is the act expected to last a certain amount of time?
Is $1250 derived from the amount that the... provider of the service would expect to earn in a given amount of time? in a night?
Is "it" sex with a particular person? In a particular place?

I don't know many people who would be willing to pay $1,250 for it [re: a lengthy session] ?
does the service involve 2? 3? 4? more? people?
is it minutes x $ ?
seconds x $ ?
time x $ ?
is there more to the cost equation than 2 numbers?

does the service involve 2? 3? 4? more? people? Just two: a husband and wife
is it minutes x $ ? No
seconds x $ ? No
time x $ ? The calculation of the cost is not "dollars per unit of time" times "number of units of time", if that's what you're asking.
is there more to the cost equation than 2 numbers? Yope

ok, not sure exactly what to ask! but here goes...

is the "fee" something the couple would pay, or others would pay?

are the husband and wife having relations with one another? or is it a "swap" where someone else has relations with the husband or wife?

are the couples alone?
being taped?
being viewed? by one person? many people?
being rated by people?

is the couple giving instructions to others? a "how to" class, maybe?

is the couple going through some sort of "sex therapy"--maybe they perform for a counselor and the counselor gives them instructions/help?

the couple together make "the client"?
the couple pay a portion of cost?
the couple pay 100% of cost based on another condition?
the couple receive payment?
is everyone involved in this service a willing participant?

"I'm not sure about that" relevant?
the author's view "dont know many people who would be willing to pay $1,250 for it" relevant?
do we need to identify the author/speaker?
is he/she an expert in the field of this service?

so the subject who will pay for this service does not konw how much money he will pay until after the service?

the service can be done without any writing at all?

is the group a general audience? or do they have some kind of career? profession? hobby? in common


in this service could one substitute the sex with another act.. like playing chess?

after a group of people read the writings is there more action?

If the couple wants this service then they seek the liaison?

does the couple want this service to solve some problem?

Clarification: The "service" is sex between a husband and wife. But there's something else involved...

the service can be done without any writing at all? Yes

is the group a general audience? or do they have some kind of career? profession? hobby? in common Profession

in this service could one substitute the sex with another act.. like playing chess? Not sure what you mean ... the "service" is having sex ... you could theoretically do the same calculation that gives the $1,250 value with a different activity, although of course the number you come up with would be different

after a group of people read the writings is there more action? Yes

If the couple wants this service then they seek the liaison? No

does the couple want this service to solve some problem? FA is probably the least misleading answer

does this have anything to do with conception? No
fertilization? No
anything that happens after the lascivious act? No

in the "service" are the couple required to have sex?
for the group?
for something in return?
plain ol' sex of husband and wife is not a "service", but another factor makes this a service?
if yes, the factor is the group? liaison?

The "service" is ordinary sex between husband and wife, nothing special about it. They are not having sex "for the group" or for anything in return, but there is some communication with "the group" involved.

Well, it seems that this puzzle has completely died and I have some new puzzles I want to post up, so if I don't hear anything within the next 24 hours or so, I'll just spoyl it.

Okay, here's the SPOILER:

An article I read a while ago reported on a survey of the happiness of married couples. The survey found that an increase in the frequency of sex from once a month to once a week produced the same increase in happiness as a $50,000 per year increase in income. As the difference between "once a month" and "once a week" is 40 times per year (52 minus 12), this would imply that each incident of sex is worth $50,000 over 40, or $1250, of additional happiness. However, I'm not too sure about that result, because I don't know many people who would actually be willing to have sex if they had to pay $1250 per go.

The confusion in this puzzle was partially due to the fact that there are two relevant events the couple is involved in - having sex and taking the survey - and you didn't seem to pick up on that point.
