Is My Number Of Sex Partners Normal?

Normal Number Of Sex Parnters

So you guys, I just found this sex calculator and I thought I should share it with you. The good people over at Slate used some research from the General Social Survey, and they found some interesting information. Namely:

We noticed a few patterns. First, men generally report more partners than women. Second, these graphs have long right-hand tails, which means a few people in every age group, both male and female, have sex with lots and lots of people. While glancing at the raw numbers, we noticed one man had purportedly slept with 1,000 people. Whoa there, Wilt Jr.

Some factors to consider with their information and their calculator are that these are self-reported numbers. People lie. People forget. Round numbers were reported much more frequently than numbers ending in 9, so the data could be slightly skewed, but this is as close as we can come so far. Slate also combined the total number of partners, and did not separate based on whether those partners were male or female, so the results compare you to people of your gender and age, but not to people of your sexual orientation. Shall we get on with it?

At first glance, I wanted to kill myself. Then, I looked at all of the people who’d had zero or one partners (and skewed the fuck out of these results), and I thought, who the fuck?!?! And then I remembered about uglies. I’d almost forgot about uglies.

To figure out exactly how many more people you’ve slept with than your peers, check out the sex calculator and enter your personal data.
