Here's How Many People You Should Have Sex With, According To A Study
Every relationship at some point comes to the all-too-real, yet wish you could avoid the moment of discussing previous sexual partners. Nobody wants to really talk about it, but there's just some curiosity that humans can't keep themselves from and that's when the question arises: "What's your number?"
It's just an unfortunate reality we all must deal with and be willing to discuss openly (no fibbing). The good news is, a recent study shows there's a universally agreed upon acceptable number.
That number will hopefully help you avoid this look of shock and/or embarrassment, whether your number is low or high.
The study was conducted by IllicitEncounters.com and came to the conclusion, that men and women polled agreed that 10 sexual partners was a fair amount, to ensure ample experience, without just tossing your business around for whom-the-hell-ever.
Experience is vital, so that this isn't the scenario you find yourself in on a routine basis, whether it be a relationship or trying out your moves on a new partner for the evening.
Illicit Encounters' researcher Christian Grant came to this conclusion about the study:
"The dating game is changing so quickly. I think we are all becoming a lot more tolerant and sexually adventurous. If we had conducted this poll ten years ago, men would have expected a potential partner to have slept with far fewer people."
Translation: "Saddle up! People are a lot more accepting of experimental phases these days!"
However, the poll did find that more than 20 partners was a bit much, so maybe don't just saddle up with any and everybody.
Basically, the research shows that you can have fun and get to know yourself without becoming a huge turnoff for potential partners in the future who may ask about your sexual history, as long as you don't go overboard with it. Anyway, it's just a study, and really bears no weight, i.e. who are we to tell you what to do?
Take the information for what it is, and if you haven't reached the 10 person maximum of acceptability yet, sounds like there's one question you need to be asking more often:
