Yes, the women (and a few men) are somewhat older but not that old. Yes, we are all well paid since most of these lunches are with CEO types. So we fit the demographic.
Here's what weird. Its all so confessional. Hushed tones, winks, knowing smiles. This last one wanted to write an expose about the 'sub culture' of IVF in NYC - who's done it and where. No thanks! I don't consider it a sub culture. I consider it a medical issue. I didn't chose to be infertile. Its not a scheduling issue (you listening Brad & Angelina).
I would write about the medical establishments and how they discriminate based on income and how it's driven by the insurance companies unethical policies about payment for IVF. I would also write about the politics of IVF and how religion should have no part in creating health care practices since this country was founded on a division of Church and State. I would write about how the USA has one of the worst track records for infant death at birth due to unethical birthing procedures that are based on hospital maximizing dollars instead of patient QOL.
But I am not going to write a gossipy book about how 'we're all doing it"!!
