The dailymail (via buzzfeed) very nicely tells us 15+ partners makes you a tramp (and if they think I buy, that a French Supermodel only had 15, I'll eat my shoe for dinner). I am not a number based gal - as much as any single, disease free, and wants to stay that way, gal - can be (who sucks at balancing a checkbook), but go with me here:

Typical dating convention says 3 dates = sex.

Active Dater has 2 partners with 3+ dates per month

Hence: 2 x 12 = 24 partners per year

Active Dater for 10 years

Thus: 24 x 10 = 240 partners

So you do the math. Maybe I've got it all wrong. But between SATC (Miranda's List on that episode about Chlamydia was like 4 pages) and life in a big city, I don't think so. In just the decade of your 20's, that is 240. Most of us started nightime excursions before age 20 and (if I can use my bevy of gal friendlies), are getting hitched after 30.

Maybe 300 isn't so crazy after all.

* this blogger notes - that would be one hell of an active dater!

what kind of twisted math is this, to justify having sex with 240 people!
