That does sound really off. Not that Sam didn't have his fair share of women throughout the series -- he was a boy scout not a monk -- but that seems really excessive. It's highlighted several times throughout the series that Sam had a much more serious attitude about that than Al, who was more casual. And an important component of Sam's character is he was someone with enough of a moral compass that even though the opportunity and temptation was there many times he didn't take advantage of his situation and the women he did get intimately involved with on leaps were women he genuinely had feelings for and cared about.

I'm still trying to get to the books I have lol. So if I read this one it won't be for a while.
