I often wonder, how did they derive seven as the number of years? Is that "logically" as long as someone could go before killing either themselves or someone else? Was it because of Marilyn Monroe's movie?

I believe according to D.C. Fontana, Vulcans CAN mate at any time. It is thus apparently just during P'onn Farr that a Vulcan MUST swim upstream or perish.
