I’ve been reading for a while, and I find myself hopping on your blog whenever I meet a new guy or am faced with a new situation. Mainly because the sexual double standard is alive and well. The average number of partners a woman purports to have is closer to 6. If a man’s sleeping with a woman, a woman’s sleeping with a man and everybody’s numbers are going up. And as far as I’m concerned it is NOBODY’S BUSINESS HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU’VE SLEPT WITH.
If it's not a close friend you might start to feel the ways that your age, gender, class and race impact how other people judge you. For starters, who and what do you include in your number? What about someone you met online and masturbated with but never talked to or saw in real life?
Before you jump all over me, this is not the same as “Do you have any STDs?
” That is a pointed and specific health-related question, where full disclosure is essential.
Sometimes I worry they're right, but I have a friend who slept with 30 guys in college. The last guy I slept with was a stuntman on Miley Cyrus' television show, .
Because of his line of work, he had an incredible body and was quite acrobatic.
