So how many people have you slept with? The man who submitted the “love letter” claimed that had he known this about his girlfriend from the start, he’d have never given her a chance. But if he hadn’t given her a chance, he wouldn’t have experienced, and I quote, “the best relationship of [his] life”.
It's the usual, boring, sexual double standard men have for women just because a woman may have slept with the same amount of partners, if not more, than her male counterpart. I’m starting to sense a little rivalry, or maybe even jealousy on their part at the fact that women can have sex much easier than men, or so I’ve been told by countless men who have presented to me this exact argument.
So how many is too many for a woman to be considered damaged goods? Ten? Twenty? More than you can count on your bodily extremities? In this day and age, I’d go with the latter, but you’d be surprised how many men actually lie about their numbers just to brush their own egos, particularly among their friends. The only reason a man should have for deeming a woman as “damaged goods” is if her magic number exceeds or rivals his magic number, and the larger the gap in numbers, the more “damaged” a woman becomes to him.
In seems that in addition to carrying the “scarlet letter,” women now have to bear the scarlet number right next to it as well. While the scarlet letter may be a mark of shame for women, I think that the scarlet number is a mark of intimidation for men. Sure, they might make locker room jokes about supposed sluts they did (or didn’t really) bang, but in reality they’re just full of themselves and trying to stroke their own egos, especially when they’ve be shot down time and time again.
As for how many is too many... I'd say that if you average one person a year for as long as you have been alive, you're not in too bad of shape. Just do yourself a favor and don't let your magic number get any higher, will ya?
