Notches in the Bedpost

So I was having a discussion with Barbara about the number of sexual partners I have had in my life time and that now being single this number is probably going to grow. It is really not a big deal to me. I know that if a future partner ever asks you are supposed to lie lie deny but really is it that important? They say men add a few to their number and women take off a few. Still shows how it is more okay in our society for men to have been with more women than visa versa.

Today Barbara sent me a poll about Notches in the bed post from a parenting forum and maybe I just need to make myself feel better but surely the biggest group are not those with 3 partner or less?

How many notches would appear on your bedpost?
0 – 3 42% [ 28 ]

4 – 6 18% [ 12 ]

7 – 10 11% [ 7 ]

11 – 15 12% [ 8 ]

16 – 20 3% [ 2 ]

21 – 25 3% [ 2 ]

26 – 30 0% [ 0 ]

31 – 35 2% [ 1 ]

36 – 40 0% [ 0 ]

40 and over 9% [ 6 ]

I decided to conduct my own little poll and lets see how the results compare. Guy please vote so we can get a better idea of the true average as I don’t think it should matter if you are a guy or girl.



And then lastly does the number matter?
