The Slut-o-Meter (a fun survey)

sex surveyWhen I was bored at home one night a few weeks ago, I decided to tally the number of sexual partners I’ve had. I’ve done this before, of course, but this time I did something different. I decided to ferret out how many of these partners were people from the poly, sex-positive, fetish or whatever-you-want-to-call-it scene(s). And I was surprised to find out that only about 1/4th of my total number* came from the related scenes.

I then shared these findings with my friend, P, who vaguely estimated her own numbers in her head and said that the same would be true of hers. Conclusion? We were both slutty long before getting on to any of these scenes. Then we decided to conduct a survey among other scene people to see if the same was true of their numbers.

I also know that Porno Jim has been conducting his own surveys of this sort lately, since he has found the “average number of sex partners” reported in Wikipedia and the like to be ridiculously low. But he recently told me that polling member of the gay community in New York, can also skew the results in the opposite (read: astronomically high) direction.

So without further ado… I present to you my own survey:

The Slut-o-Meter!

It’s totally anonymous. You don’t even have to enter a name. Oh, and lest you get confused by the “slut” term here, it applies to both boys and girls (and anyone in between), as defined in The Ethical Slut and such.

Thank you in advance for your responses and please forward this to anyone you think might be interested/relevant (we want to be thorough and scientifically valid here, you know). I’ll keep this thing up for a week or two and then post the results.

* I’m not going to disclose my numbers here, but I submitted them to the survey.

  1. I lost track of “my number” around seventy-something. I don’t know if I’ve broken 100 yet. I used to keep obsessive track of it (had a list of first names and everything) but by the time I was regularly hooking up with new people at sex parties, keeping track of the exact number started to feel like a chore. And do I count oral? Manual? Their hands? My hands? Recalling a blissful body pile, I might even overlook a hand!
