The New York Times is implying that we straight guys may be exaggerating about our sex lives. But just because something can't be true doesn't mean it didn't happen, does it?
Once again, I'm pretty sure this research originated at my high school prom where the theme, if I remember correctly, was taken from the Bryan Adams song: "Let's Make This Night Last Forever, But Your Sexual Expectations Are Statistically Impossible."
One survey, recently reported by the federal government, concluded that men had a median of seven female sex partners. Women had a median of four male sex partners. Another study... stated that men had 12.7 heterosexual partners in their lifetimes and women had 6.5.
But there is just one problem, mathematicians say. It is logically impossible for heterosexual men to have more partners on average than heterosexual women. Those survey results cannot be correct.
Obviously, based on the data above, what I remember as a classic ".7", she only ranks as a ".5"... and I have to admit, that hurts.
