  • I'm 18, and since losing my virginity at 16 I've slept with 7 guys. 2 in serious relationships, 3 friends with benefits, and 2 one night stands. Although it seems like a lot, I know that I'm not desperate, and I only go for guys I'm attracted to. It may be more than other girls, but I love my body, and I respect it. I've always been safe, and the sex has nearly always been amazing :) No regrets!

  • I'm female, 19 and had 6 partners. 2 of which were relationships, the otherwise were friends with benefits I suppose. Am now engaged to my current partner who has had many more partners than me - infact, most have been ons and he says he genuinely couldn't put a definite number to how many. I wish I didn't know to be honest as it makes feel pretty inexperienced, however we are very happy. As long as your happy with who you've slept with that's all that matters.

  • im 18, and have currently slept with 23 people including females, 17 males if not including females. ive realised this is a high number for my age considering i lost my virginity when i was 15 years old. my question is, if im going to put it bluntly, am i a slut? 4 of them i was in relationships with and the rest are either 1offs or friends with benefits. i think personally i just enjoy sex. but would appreciate other people opinions on my 'situation', all opinions welcome.

  • I'm nineteen and I have never had sex, so there you go! Some of the people above me are my age and have had multiple sex partners! It really depends on the person, and at the end of the day, it's up to you what you do with your sex life. Statistics are very irrelevant.
