The other thread inspired this! What is your definition of "a lot" of sexual partners? Have you lied about the number of partners to your significant other? Should the significant other know how many you've had? I would say 20 and up is a lot for me for guys. I've lied about my number once to a guy I dated. He was a prude. I strongly BELIEVE that this should not be an issue between two in a relationship. If the guy I'm interested in asks me how many I've had, I tell him that it's irrelevant to us. As long he knows I'm clean and I know he's clean then I'm happy. I don't see why some people are so gung ho about knowing their significant other's number of partners. Does it make any difference? It just put a crimp in the relationship. Thoughts?
