MEN AND WOMEN consistently lie about how many people they’ve slept with, that’s according to research by Ohio State University and published in Greatist.com.

Men tend to overrepresent and women tend to underrepresent their number of sexual partners.

The research points to the realisation that no one actually knows what it means to have a healthy sex life and most people are dissatisfied with their sexual experiences, either because they think they’re too promiscuous or too prudish.

So, today we want to hear from you on this.

Do you lie about the number of people you’ve slept with?


Poll Results:

No (2703)
Sometimes (2449)
