    Reading personal experiences here got me to googling average lifetime sex partner statistics. They vary quite widely, the most recent number being shockingly low:

    Average man sleeps with 7 women - Sexual health- msnbc.com

    Men with seven, women with four lifetime partners, and men with more than 15 less than a third of the population? Well, another study has men with an average of seventeen lifetime partners:

    Inductivist

    But Kinsey lists several studies including one that says only 17% have more than 21 lifetime partners:

    The Kinsey Institute - Sexuality Information Links - FAQ [Related Resources]

    There is plenty of anti-gay material on the web and the above link I gave seemed to want to use the 46 average lifetime partners for gay men against gay marriage. Seems like an argument for it to me! But then a 1997 study of older gay males found the most frequent report was between 100 and 500 lifetime partners. Of course, the older the respondent the more years to rack up numbers. The best site for links to studies and raw data is:

    GayData.org

    My own numbers are something like 100 lifetime fucking partners at least 200 more casual oral/jackoff etc., and anecdotally this does seem to be typical of men I know. From your experience and that of your acquaintances, which of these statistics seem more and less plausible?

    Research has shown that self-reported statistics of human behavior involving alcohol use, drug use, and sex are always inaccurately reported.

    Wow, my numbers far exceed these stats. Yet I've managed to have a really good reputation. Interesting.

    This analysis finds that men and women use different ways of calculating, the implication is that the former overestimate while the latter underestimate:

    Lovers and liars: How many sex partners have you really had?

    If you mix the casual hook ups with the not so casual, I know a lot of people who are in the 1,000 to 3,000 range - but I have been in NYC for the last 30 years.

    Haha.It's different being gay tho. It's men & men, no need for a dinner date, or even a conversation! As women always say, blokes are a lot simpler.

    I saw Rufus Wainwright on TV say that he never masturbates - he just takes a walk to his local park:wink:

    46 male partners is way too high for me. 7 female partners is also too high.

    When you had said a lot of people in the 100 to 300 range - I believe you.
    Perhaps you know 1 exceeding the 1000 range.
    Example :
    Let us say that you have each week a new sexual encounter; week after week.
    For 1000 it will take you almost 20 years.
    For 3000 60 years.

    When something is far from average we seems to have the need to exagerate in everything.

    I know of two friends who've both had over 1000 partners. It was not a new partner every week but a new partner every day or two. And on some days, they had several new partners just by going to sex parties.

    four for women is definitely BS... but for the men its probably pretty accurate. the majority of guys just dont get laid that often... i read somewhere that like 10% of men sleep with 90% of the women, the "alpha males" i guess.

    I agree. The average guy doesn't seem to get that many women, it's only a handful of guys that seem to have access to a lot of sex. I see this with my male friends who are single and young/successful, yet most of them only get dates every once in a while, the vast majority of which don't lead to sex. For me, I am cancelling dates left and right just because I can't keep up lol. It's definitely easier to get dates as a woman.

    Absolutely! I don't know if it's just a few of the men who ask the majority of the women out on dates, but when I'm single, it's raining men. There's always more men asking for dates than time to date them.

    It's not arrogance, it's just what it's like to be a woman.

    Depends on the country. The Australian self-reported average is 13, which is one of the highest in the world. Different cultural reasons: a conservative country (the US) versus a liberal country, the impact of religion (Australia is irreligeous) and so on.

    Well, in 70 years I fucked 1 guy once, one girl 3 times and my wife about 10,000 times!

    I had an ex I already knew had had 2,000+. I'll leave that there.

    I stopped racking up numbers for the sake of it years ago, I guess that's the point when I became self confident enough not to worry, or just mature.

    There are a lot of women who never go on a date at all, & most guys use a scattergun approach - throw enough bait, you'll eventually get a bite - although I could never understand those tossers in the UK & USA who hit on a woman when her boyfriend goes to get a drink.

    Unfortunately, nice guy, normally means boring guy, to a lot of women, & of course the guys who are more confident with themselves just seem to shine a lot more.

    It is different for gay men, because we can hook up with a snap of the finger, a grab of the groin and take advantage of those opportunities in all sorts of convenient ways.

    I prefer to count in miles of hard dick. An average of 6" other guys hard dick every day, some days there were more than one, a few there were none, some time they were longer, occasionally shorter, since 1978 equals about 1.1 miles of dick.

    I think we're sometimes at risk of confusing "a lot of sex" with "a lot of sexual partners" — someone in a monogamous relationship, including a serial monogamist, can be having lots and lots of sex but not lots and lots of partners.

    I think you can be both a nice guy and a confident guy. Having one quality is unrelated to the other.
