Young women 'have more sexual partners' than men
Young women are more promiscuous than men, according to a survey that claims the average 21-year-old has had nine sexual partners compared with seven for men.

The poll of 2,000 by the magazine More also found that one in four young women has slept with more than 10 people, compared with one in five men who had done the same.

In addition, half of those questioned admitted they had been unfaithful, whereas only a quarter said they had been cheated on by a boyfriend.

It comes just a week after an academic study branded Britain one of the casual sex capitals of the Western world, with residents having more one-night stands and more liberal attitudes than those in Australia, France, the Netherlands, Italy and the US.

Lisa Smosarski, the editor of More, said: "Our results show that after decades of lying back and thinking of England, today's twenty-something women are taking control of their sex lives and getting what they want in bed."

The magazine's survey found that few young women today hold to traditional views on sexual morality.

Just 1 per cent of young women said they would want to get married before having sex, with the majority losing their virginity at 16.

More than half said they were not in love with their first partner, and only one in three believe it is important to be in love with someone before going to bed with them.

Seven out of 10 said they had had a one-night stand, with a fifth admitting to having had more than five casual encounters.

In addition, 60 per cent said they would be prepared to do a "kiss-and-tell", and would sell their account of a one-night-stand with a famous person for 20,000.

Four out of 10 said they would marry for money or sleep with their boss if it meant they would get promoted, while a quarter would have an affair with a married man.

The survey also found young women are taking "huge risks" with their health, with 38 per cent not using a condom with a new partner and 16 per cent having contracted a sexually transmitted disease.

However the respondents still claimed they are not having as much sex as they would like, with 13 per cent claiming their love life is "disappointing" and a further 10 per cent calling it "non-existent".

Well, here again, Calvin is proven right.

I'm not surprised much. You have to be double-bag ugly to be rejected by a drunken guy at last call and drinking is what's fueling promiscuity in the U.K. (and in the U.S. among the under 25 group). I doubt that most of these couplings could happen if the woman was stone cold sober. It's interesting to note that many super-drunk men simply can't perform but a woman can "perform" in a coma. Literally.

It's really sad that the take-home message most young women have gotten from post-Second Wave feminism is that you become more equal to men by emulating their very worst traits - never their very best traits. When was the last time you ever read an article urging women to be courageous, forthright, solution-oriented, or less dramatic?

If you have read such a thing it was probably published around 1955.

The average 21 year old has had 7 to 9 sexual partners? That is horrifying.

Dorm living in the early-mid 80s was a eye-opener for me. I was amazed at how slutty girls could be. I had a roommate who had 3 new partners a week for a semester. One, from the bar on Thursday night, one from a Friday night party and a third from wherever we went on Saturday night.

And, yeah, she drank a lot. We all did, but she was one of those who we couldn't stop when she was hell-bent on being stupid, because we all looked out for each other at parties.

"Taking control of their sex lives" means nothing more than being a slut only now they do not have to feel any shame over it.

Hey! That's a generalization.

I see this every time the band plays a popular club.
You have a unique view being sober and up on a stage. The chicks are very predatory.

No big deal, the chicks were very predatory when I was in my 20's.

Same song, same dance.

I worked as a bouncer in a pool hall for fun and games a few years back, and you really get a different view of things when you're the sober one. I lost count of how many times I was groped and hit on by drunken women who (rightfully so) never would have given me a second glance if they had been sober.

God bless 'em! ;)

just because the topic of ironic google ads in threads came up in another forum, I'd like to point out what was at the top of the page when I read this thread.

Back on topic...



However the respondents still claimed they are not having as much sex as they would like, with 13 per cent claiming their love life is "disappointing" and a further 10 per cent calling it "non-existent".

Is it disappointing because they aren't getting enough or because they want more than empty sex and don't have a clue how to achieve that?
