    Score takes some adding up

    Hello,

    Can anybody explain to me what the bold text means?

    "Ive always found her charming, no matter what spiteful gossip these fellows may hurl at her. Perhaps shes a little dear for them." He added a wink of the yey for emphasis. "She only goes for the big prizes, your lovely friend, and she prefers intzernational events. Her score takes some adding up."
    "So does her age," Saluces put in.

    The Gaucous Eyes, Jean Lorrain, 189? (translated by Olaf Stapledon)

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Score takes some adding up

    It would take a long time to add up the number of men she has *.

    The final words depend on exactly what the woman has been doing. She could have been getting men to, for example, take her to expensive restaurants, buy her expensive presents, or pay her for sex.
