Twelve is considered the ideal number of sexual partners you can have.
The UK’s leading dating website for married people, found in a recent survey that most people consider 12 to be the ideal number.
The site surveyed over 1,000 people to find that 40 percent of men and 49 percent of women thought that between 10 and 14 partners are best, with 12 being perfect
Sixty percent of men and 55 percent of women agreed that sleeping with as many as 12 partners is indicative of someone who’s sexually adventurous, liberal and transient.
Conversely, 70 percent of men and 66 percent of women said that anything less than 10 partners indicates sexual inexperience and a lack of adventure in the bedroom
The both sexes disagreed when it came to sexual history. Over half of the men wanted to know how many people their partner has slept with while as little as 45 percent of women want to know.
Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, said: “We are more liberal, tolerant and sexually adventurous than we’ve ever been, so the numbers game matters. A good sexual connection is the cornerstone of any solid relationship, so someone who is lacking in sexual experience is a little too conservative between the sheets, or both is a legitimate cause for concern for some people.
“Men are a little more self-conscious when it comes to competition, too. Their need to know how many people their partner has slept with derives from their competitive streak. They want to be seen as the biggest and best; whether that stems from genuinely wanting to satisfy their partner or to massage their own ego is another matter entirely.
“Women on the other hand, they’re just happy to enjoy the moment, past experiences aside.”
