considerably. After all what one person deems to be promiscuous in one part of the world might not be the case in another part of the world.
'How many sexual partners have you had?' Not a good question to ask partners, as questions about numbers bring about more questions and insecurity. The only thing you need to know about your partners sexual past is whether he is disease free." - Susan
The Average Number Of Sexual Partners For Men And Women Revealed
Think you've had sex with a lot or a little…? Much as it doesn't matter, it's still intriguing
Scientists have been comparing data from a lot of men and women and have come up with some averages for the number of sexual partners people have.
While consistently comparing yourself to others in the bedroom is no recipe for sexual confidence and ease, we can't deny that we're a little curious about what they discovered.
In a study of 60,058 heterosexual men and women, researchers at Chapman University also looked at how height and weight were a factor.
Unsurprisingly they found that men that were 'very short' had fewer sexual partners than most, and those who were either average or extremely tall had between one and three more partners than those who came in below the norm on the height chart.
When it came to numbers of partners they revealed that for people between age 30 and 44, the average was eight.
Most people, regardless of gender had had over five partners: 58% of men and 56% of women.
When the numbers went up to over 14, the percentages dropped sharply: 29% of men and 23% of women.
Just remember, wherever you fit on the scale, it doesn't really matter as long as you're happy.
