Shock: Men Overreport, Women Underreport Sex Partners

Another study we couldn't have done without.

Women say they've had 8.6 lifetime sex partners; men, 31+. Obviously, someone's lying. This study immediately asked men and women if they were lying about their numbers and, just two minutes after reporting their number, many confessed they were.

It's also due to a different method of counting employed by either sex.

Men's overreportage of sex partners comes from including partners that they

1) almost had

2) should have had

3) really, really wanted to have

4) could have had, but were either too drunk or not drunk enough to have, or

5) didn't actually have, but heard a buddy recount an especially vivid sex story such that "they almost felt like they were there"

On the other hand, women's underreportage comes from women "not remembering" partners they

1) didn't really have; after all, they only had oral and/or anal sex

2) didn't really have because it was over really quickly or the guy was so small they figure it didn't count

3) had, but in another country, so no one really knows about it, except for some dirty stinking foreigners, and who would believe them anyway?

4) had, but really "just weren't that into it" and/or were doing on a "mercy" basis,

5) had, but it was another chick, and that doesn't count, that's just nice innocent lesbian experimention, or

6) had five or six guys in a span of ten days during their sophomore year in college, but they've combined that half-dozen into a single composite character they call "Enrique Testarossa," a Barcelona medical student and base-jumper/rock-climber/bull-fighter

Science. What would we do without it.

Thanks to Allah Pundit.

Gratuitous Bonus Filthy Link! Jenna Jameson says she had sex with Jenny McCarthy; Jenny McCarthy says she didn't.

See Number 5, above.

Allah really wants this story to be true, but I gotta tell ya, I always thought Jenny McCarthy was kinda weird and fake-looking, and Jenna Jameson... well, she was a doll, but the knife has not been kind to her.

Personally, I'm about as interested in this story as a hypothetical Madeleine Albright/Margaret Cho tryst.

More Vile Filth: "Valentine heart" symbol derives not from a heart at all, but is rather "inspired by the shape of female buttocks as they appear from behind."

As they appear from behind? As opposed to what? As they appear from the front?
