  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I'm 19 and I had sex with 9 guys ,After the sixth guy I thought wow , my number is increasing , I can't blame nobody but myself , but the reason the relationships didn't last its either I've been heartbroken ,cheated on , used or mistreated, before I used to regret it but I've learn that its better to let go than to be ,mistreated, used cheated on or heart broken, I am still proud of myself because there people who are younger than me and had way more sex partners than I did , I'm currently still with the ninth guy and I'm extremely happy..so I think its a matter of happiness

  • Am early 30's and have had over 100 partners! I wouldn't admit this as i would be classes as a slut.. But in all honesty, i had my 1st partner at 16 which was a holiday thing that i actually did not want to happen but did, an from then my fault was looking for love in guys! Thinking it would happen if i sleep with them!
    but as i got older lately i have thought, i actually enjoy sex being single and safe why not explore my body with some one i trust and find attractive! When i have been in a serious/ dating relationship i have all ways been faithful!! So it doesn't make me a slut but in the past alot of mistakes! N now a Lil try of something new untill mr right comes my way... N if i think i found him i would resits sleepin with him as long as..

  • Im 18 and ive had 3 sexual partners, the first one in a serious relationship and the 2 others were just friends with benefits. I feel like doing it with more guys but i dont wanna feel guilty for having had too many partners later. Still trying to figure out what to do.
