Everyone knows their ‘number’, but how does yours measure up?
A new survey claims to have found the ideal number of sexual partners we should aim to have before tying the knot.
The Telegraph reports that men and women who participated in the survey agreed on a “goldilocks” number of sexual partners – in other words, a number that wasn’t “too hot” or “too cold”, but rather, just right.
And that number? 10.
People with less than 10 partners under their belt were considered inexperienced, while those with more were thought to be too promiscuous.
The poll was the brainchild of IllicitEncounters.com, and spokesman Christian Grant said the results were surprising.
“The dating game is changing so quickly. I think we are all becoming a lot more tolerant and sexually adventurous," he said.
“If we had conducted this poll ten years ago, men would have expected a potential partner to have slept with far fewer people.
