I think I just got sex-shamed by an online calculator.
Has anyone ever asked you what ‘your number’ is? It’s something that seems to happen a lot in Hollywood.
“How many people have you slept with?” Some fancy, cocktail-sipping lady will ask some other fancy, cocktail-sipping lady before snorting into her Cosmopolitan and high-fiving her own delightful wickedness.
And then, almost invariably, her jaw will fall off into her over-priced beverage as she exclaims: “Wait. How many?”
Whatever answer she receives from her overly sexed/chaste gal pal, it is never the right one.
It is ALWAYS too many or too few.
According to a survey released this month by San Diego State University, millenials have fewer sexual partners on average than their forebears.
The survey, which gathered data from 33,000 American adults, found that 25-year-olds today are likely to have had eight sexual partners, while baby-boomers had an average of 11 at the same age.
Not content to have this knowledge merely exist in academic annals, Slate used it to create a handy online calculator, so that you can plug in your deets and find out once and for all how you stack up on scale of sexiness.
