Ideal Number of Sexual Partners

20 March 2016 10:44 AM

Dating site, Illicit Encounters has been doing a bit of research into the ‘ideal’ number of sexual partners someone would like their current lover to have had, before settling down. And it seems the magic number is 10!

The site surveyed 1000 Brits and 10 was the number that came out on top (no pun intended!). The site have nicknamed it the ‘Goldilocks’ number because it’s ‘just right’! It seems that 10 is the balance between being considered not to have enough experience and being too promiscuous. The survey found the 38% of women and 37% of men said that between 8 and 12 was the best number and most agreed on 10. It seems that both men and women were wary of potential partners who had had more than 10 previous encounters. Anything above 20 was considered a turn off for both sexes.

Perhaps not surprisingly, and our Newcastle Escorts agreed, more women than men were interested in knowing where their partner had been before sexually. According to the survey, 35% of women wanted to know about their partner’s previous sexual exploits, compared to 30% of men.

‘The dating game is changing,’ said a spokesman for Illicit Encounters. ‘If we had conducted this poll 10 years ago men would have expected a potential partner to have slept with far fewer people.’

Meanwhle, research carried out by More magazine showed the that average woman has slept with 9 people before the age of 21. Two more than the guys had!
