Question of the Week: What’s Your Number?

The movie What’s Your Number? (just released on DVD) is based on the totally annoying premise that a woman (played by the usually much funnier and better-than-this Anna Faris) freaks out when she reads a magazine article and discovers that her sexual body count (20) is twice the average. So she decides that rather than just carrying on with her dating and sex life like a normal human being, or becoming celibate, she will rifle through her exes to see if one of them could be The One — thereby not upping her number any further.

So, here’s our question for you: Do you (or did you ever) keep track of your “number”? Do you have it on the tip of your tongue? Could you work it out, if pressed? Were you ever bothered by your number (in either direction), or what other people might think of your number?

Im at 7, after losing my virginity at 18 and going to turn 28 in a few months. I don’t think that’s a lot of guys; I’ve always been picky and dated most of these 7, but have also gone months without it because I didn’t meet anyone who -pun intended- tickled my fancy. In college I would do only oral with most guys because to me that was less intimate. With 8 being my lucky number, maybe that’s why im holding out for the eighth man. That and number 7 was SO TERRIBLE in bed I wish I could say he didn’t count.

To be honest if a man has a really high number, like upwards of 40, I’m gonna wonder a) if he’s clean and b) why he was sticking his dick into every single chick who looked at him twice. But that’s just me.

I am 28 and guess my number to be at about 35 over half of these guys and girls are in the last 18 months.
I was ashamed until I recently met a guy (I was his fourth) he was so turned on by my experience. I know own it. Without this I may not have hit on him, he was a great lay and we will see each other again next time he is in town.
I dont feel that numbers count for anything, and anyone that puts to much thought into it is not worth it.

Hmmm.. been years since i kept count but i think its at least 15 but i suspect closer to 20 or more even.. 5 of whom were boyfriends.. 1 my husband (ex).. a couple were girls.. and the majority of the rest were casual flings during or between relationships so i don’t have names etched in my memory

I have no shame and no need for shame. I have lived an adventurous, fun, and disease-free life. I’m worldly and experimented with different guys that caught my eye. I lost my virginity at 17. I am now 27. My number is 74.
