If a woman admits to 10 lovers, she's probably had 30Page 2 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
I remember having a discussion in mixed company about how many sex partners we have had. Nobody actually revealed numbers, but most of the women appeared to feel guilty and embarrased about what those numbers were.

I finally said: "Y'know, if you didn't enjoy it, it doesn't count."

"Oh well then" they said, smiling

I never heard of the multiply by three rule. What I do is divide her age by 3 as an absolute minimum...and I'm never surprised no matter how large the number. Most women in their 40s were sexually active in the 70s & 80s. Those were strange times and I've met many who have had hundreds of lovers. Think about it. Two new lovers per week for 3 or 4 years and you're hitting the big 2-0-0 before you know it.

This is always a bad topic of discussion between couples, better left for women to discuss with their girlfriends and guys to discuss with their buddies.

It's a lose lose situation if you ask me.

We all would way better off if we married johnies and hookers since I don't think they take pride in their scores;everybody here does.

I'm not sure what planet some of you come from, but where I'm from girls aren't blabbing about how they can "sleep around like the boys". I'll assume the strangeness comes from the fact that this is the internet where there are no real social consequences.

There was a wedding I recently attended (in 2007, not 1957) there was a cute girl who, when the boys were talking, happened to have her cover blown when we found out that she had slept with numerous guys in the group. Her social status changed from "prize" to "easy target" within minutes, and has stuck.

And the answer is...

It's to reconcile the results of various surveys, where women consistently say they have fewer partners on average than men say they have -- which is a mathematical impossibility in a population made up of about 50% males and 50% females, if you think about it a sec. The averages should be the same. So at least somebody is lying. People typically think men exaggerate and women do the opposite.

Usually the difference is about a factor of two or a little less, so the "multiply by 3 rule" may be a bit pessimistic, or "inflated" as you say. Adding or subtracting about 40% would be more appropriate, on average.

You know it is ironic how a guy is a lover when he had over 87 women in less then 3 years but if a woman had half that she is considered a slut.

Actually if I'd heard that I'd probably just call the guy a manwhore... wait you were talking about yourself... um, no offense intended...

I have a dream that I will one day live in a nation where we will not be judged by the notches on our bedpost, but by the content of our character!

Yeah... I'm pretty sure that's how that went.

IMO.... if you want to lie, the factor to which you divide is up to you. I personally think its a huge waste of time.

And there is a huge difference between lovers, and bangs.

I do think generally speaking women are more selective because regardless of what you look like, there is always some men willing to do anything. (SOME not all)

Women probably don't want to admit to how many men they have slept with thinking that it will taint your opinion of them. I wouldn't say that all women are very selective about who they sleep with, I just think that maybe they think it could go somewhere and it doesn't, therefore the number climbs. No big deal.

My philosophy is the more experience she has, the more she can teach. I don't care how many lovers a partner has had, though I prefer that they've had a decent number. That's what medical testing is for. As long as a person is healthy, it doesn't bother me one bit.

Based on this poll by ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/News/story?id=156921&page=1) I revise some of my earlier post:

Overall, women report an average of six sex partners in their lifetimes; men, 20.

That's a factor of 3 1/3, which leads to a +83% adjustment factor factor for women and a -45% adjustment factor for men if one assumes they're both shading the facts equally (11 partners is the true average for both sexes).

This is so stupid.. I have never added or multiplied. I mean why, I also have the don't ask policy as long as they can pass an STD test.. Aren't down on main street, or had all my friends in the last 2 years. I don't care none of my business.

OP not calling you stupid just this theory of people judging other people

Okay..... so you multiply by three for women........ but you STILL need to divide by one hundred for most men! Therefor, I think the ladies still hold the moral high ground. Besides, all things considered, we are all being driven into a sort of frenzied, sexual competition by society as a whole. The key difference, I think, is we men seem more intimidated sexually, than most women. Truthfully, guys, when was the last time a woman grilled you for hours about who had the best feeling kitty.... her or one of your exes? I think we'd all be better off if we never broached the subject.

Not a problem when a woman has lots of lovers as practice makes perfect

I joined the navy @17 and had relations with over 87 women in less then 3 years not including several three some 's

As a plumbing contractor I lost count how many women I had some type of sex with I gave up counting after 560

not including BJ's I received or head I gave to several of my female accounts that wanted to save themselves for marriage

Never heard the multiply factor, but I have heard the "add 3"-which came from the movie American Pie



And, if it's a guy, the multiplier is 3.14....

(omg, please tell me someone got that ......)


So, that must be from the movie American Pi, right?

women do this when they are afraid of being rejected and marginalized by goofy guys with the term slut.

when really.. she's sexually advanced.. probably learned a lot of tricks from other guys.. and she likes to **** a lot..

the sad part is she's looking for someone, and filling that vooidddd. with 30 di.cks.

she is copying guys and can't be very happy... because naturally.. women would rather be selective like the poster said.

It seems to never matter what the number is going to be. Because it will always be too high! Wether in reality it is 1,10 30 , 50 or 100 it will always be to high... So don't ask!!! and hopefully she will not ask you!!

^ Just like what Chris Rock said ;)

I don't want to know if her number is significantly higher than mine, which is 5.

Given the cards I was dealt, I think 5 is pretty decent ;)

If she says 10 it is probably 10.
