This Is The Average Number Of Partners A Person Has During Their Life


Biology dictates that the goal of existence and survival is to pass on our genetic information. Whether it is a lion, an eagle or a human being, our most primal, biological instincts are to procreate and to pass on our DNA. This is why female peacocks choose male peacocks with the brightest feathers and why female chimps always go for the alpha male in the group (they carry the most ‘desired’ traits.)

But humans are one of the few animals that can derive pleasure from procreation, along with gorillas and dolphins.

So a recent study took a look at the average number of sexual partners a person has in their lifetime.

A survey was conducted with more than two thousand participants in the United States as well as Europe to reveal how many sexual partners they have had in their lifetime.

According to this Superdrug survey, on average, men have slept with six people while women average around seven.


The survey also revealed that men consider women who have had more than 14 sexual partners as ‘too promiscuous.’

Whereas, women tend to be a little more lenient and consider 15 partners or more as ‘too many.’ However, both sexes agreed that seven was the ideal number of sexual partners that one should have in their lifetime.
