Yeah actually, the title of that article is incorrect. It should be, "Median man sleeps with 7 women."

OK, something doesn't add up. Maybe prostitution accounts for the discrepancy ?

Well, I would say it's the men that run around that push up the median for the men...heck I was engaged to a guy and he put in his 7 different women (not counting me), WHILE we were engaged. I realize all men aren't like that but I'm sure there are some the skew the numbers big time for the rest.

This is the most logical explanation for the perpetual, illogical imbalance. I wonder if studies have been done to confirm this phenomenom.

As a willing participant in the "Summer of Love", I thought in the late 60's and early 70's I had gone to heaven. However, I didn't notice any shortage of "chicks". I think the Fuzzy Bunny is probably right in her assessment.

Those were the days, my friend We thought they'd never end.

Peace

it's 1 out of 7 women, not men. as to what's left for straight women: you can have all the str8 crossdressers; they don't do nothin' for us.

ps beststash. a) they haven't ended b) your summer of love post happens to be your post #69 just in case ya hadn't noticed.

Fake lie-detector reveals women's sex lies - 14 July 2003 - New Scientist

This ones fun. Ask someone how many lovers they've had, then plug them into a fake box and tell them its a lie detector and ask them again. Womens numbers jump 70%. Mens numbers rise slightly.

Theres also a problem in the method used by each gender to make their cases...

Don't ya think there's an over emphasis on sex in our culture.
Maybe I'm just an overly sensitive guy, But I get just as much or more enjoyment out of just sleeping with women. The cuddling, kissing, stroking, smelling and listening to a woman talk about her day, her dreams and what's on her mind is very fulfilling. Of course, this usually leads to sex, but I'm not going to say no and disappoint the lady.
