Dear Poll: Do You Lie about the Number of Sexual Partners You Have Had?



We all have a history - but have you noticed that people are most curious about your sexual history? While it's important to know if your partner is healthy and disease free, knowing how many notches he has on his belt is still up for debate. Whether you have a high number or low number of sexual partners, opening up that can of worms is bound to cause an argument, so what I want to know is, do you lie when someone asks you how many people have shared your bed?

I would never lie to my boyfriend but the "don't ask don't tell policy applies to him only because I don't really care or want to know how many people he's been with. Although he is older than me and has had much more experience i don't care to know. As long as i know he doesn't have a disease and i have basic knowledge of his past relationships I'm okay with it.

My "number" will grow as I get older... but for right now the answer is always 3 or 4!

I have a hard core rule... once you tell anyone anything personal... it is a count down till it becomes common knowledge. I realize that women still don't get men are horrible gossips... but no one really needs to tell all their business to some man, just cause you have seen him with his pants off.

Guys can't handle hearing any number above5. It freaks them out. I'm not ashamed, but we do have to protect fragile egos!

i lied because i don't like to count some of the people i've had sex with :/ the mistakes don't really matter as long as you learn from them..

If it's someone I think I should tell (like a guy I'm getting really serious about) then why lie? That's just stupid and wrong. But anyone else who asks, what business is it of theirs?

I'm very open so I tell everything. I have nothing to hide, plus I couldn't keep a secret about myself if I tried!

I don't think that people should tell each other how many other people they've slept with. That can open up a whole lot of unnessesary drama when it's something that can't be changed. The only thing that matters is whether or not you and your partner are STD free, and that's the conversation you need to have.

I don't do actual numbers, if that's what we're talking about. My fiance knows there were others before him, and vice versa. That's enough information. That being said, the longer I know him and hear stories, the more I realize his past FAR outnumbers mine! :D

I don't think it's fair to lie. That other person is trusting you enough to be intimate with you. There shouldn't be a reason to lie. If a number makes someone that uncomfortable then it wouldn't be meant to be.

It's not information that I share with anyone except for the person I am in a relationship with. My hubby knows my number, he's fine with it, we're both std free and happy. That's all that matters. No need to lie, you are who you are.

Wouldn't it be fun to have a poll asking for our numbers, in ranges (ie: 1 to 4, etc.)? It would be interesting to see!

My number's low, so I don't lie. But if it was higher, I still wouldn't lie! The truth comes out eventually & I've got nothing to hide.

I don't need to tell anyone who I slept with. I get checked for STDs & HIV. As long as I have a clean bill of health, what I did is my business.

It's too late for me, I lied in the beginning. I said 5, when the number was 8. So now the number is 6. He's had sex with like 9 girls included me and I think he told me 6 or 7 in the beginning. I honestly don't know how many partners he's had. But I won't ask because I don't want to confess that I've actually had sex with 8 people rather than 5. I considered them mistakes so I wanted to forget them. I with my current boyfriend was the only person I've ever had sex with. But that's a whole nother topic of regret! There's a lot of past stuff that does not matter what so ever and never will, so I just don't think about it and never bring it up and that means it's fine!

I don't lie. Not only do I feel no reason to lie to the man I love, but I think it's socially irresponsible to lie about your sexual history to someone you're sleeping with.
