Well it may come across as an exaggerated number, but ten is the ‘ideal number of sexual partners’ a person should have, findings of a survey conducted by the popular dating website IllicitEncounters.com has found.
In a survey of more than 1,000 men and women, the respondents revealed that making new partners is promising and hearty.
The findings revealed that while a 38 percent of the men felt ‘eight to twelve’ sexual partners as the ideal count, 37 percent of the women deemed the numbers to be most ideal.
Thus, on average ‘ten’ came out to be the overall preference.
The findings further suggested that while having more than ten partners were considered too promiscuous, having fewer than ten was being inexperienced.
“The dating game is changing so quickly. I think we are all becoming a lot more tolerant and sexually adventurous,” Christian Grant, a spokesman for IllicitEncounters.com, said.
“If we had conducted this poll ten years ago, men would have expected a potential partner to have slept with far fewer people.”
