This question has been asked to millions of men and women, and millions of men and women lie about it. It's so funny because it is such a massive double edged sword men lie up, women lie down. Isn't there an old rule of thumb that when you ask your serious girlfriend how many partners she had that you add seven to it? Subsequently when a serious girlfriend asks you aren't you supposed to say twelve? for the more conservative men "seven". I have an article here saying only 29% of men and 9% of women have had 15 or more partners in their lifetime, the average being a solid "7" <a class="postlink" href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19374216/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19374216/</a> My buddies and I must be way above average then. The reason I'm even writing this is because we were thinking of girls (attractive women who are married with kids now) who we absolutely knew had more than twenty partners. C'mon even Jerry Seinfeld was with more than seven....right? We assumed he slept with all of those girls except the Virgin. FOCUS: If you are brave enough go ahead and print your number. Also tell story's about having to divulge your number or maybe you were horrified when you found out your partners. Also throw out the unofficial rules to this subject, I'm pretty sure this is one. Prostitutes/Escorts do not count in a man's final tally, if a women pays for a male escort however THAT does count. Likewise a man should never admit to his future wife engaging in such activities...never.....not even Asian massage parlors. Please do not use this as a format to brag and sound like Tucker, I'm more interested in producing a realistic figure and hearing some funny stories. **** Shegirl told me in private that her number is 177 9but that does not include foreigners nor dwarves) so girls do not be afraid to come clean.
