theflatline: Also, people in other countries tend to fark more. Before I married the Mrs. I was doing 2-3 a month in Colombia, for them it is like shaking hands.


True, dat.   Expats especially, but locals too.    I was in Seoul for a month last year for business.    The only night I slept alone was the first night I was there.   3 different women... including a threesome with two of them.   Didn't get much sleep but it was great.    Best business trip ever.

dustygrimp: poison_amy: Dear Jerk: 15 kisses and 2 long long-term relationships. Factor in the 10 sexual partners and that means if you kiss the girl, you have a 67% chance of getting her to bed, but only a 14% chance of getting roped into a relationship. I wish I had this information when I was younger.

Wait a minute. That's pretty close to how my life turned out.

I don't know, I've actually kissed far fewer than I've farked. But then, I'm a bit of a slut.

You don't kiss the guys you fark? How much do you charge?


Slut, not whore.

Well, attention whore, according to your profile.

I'm of the opinion that everyone (of every gender and orientation) is to some degree a whore.  Almost everyone will trade sex with someone they're not that into for something they want at some point in their lives... It's just that most of us want something other than cash (IE attention, emotional support, ego enhancement, bragging rights, novelty, fantasy fulfillment, a fancy dinner, whatever).  

People will go to great mental lengths to lie to themselves about the quid-pro-quo nature of (some of) their sexual encounters just to avoid the mental stigma of admitting to themselves that it is a transaction.

Since it hasnt been used yet.....HARLOTS!

I think my roomate would just blow these stats up. Watching her date guys is better than any TV show. The funny thing is if she starts dating a guy they become so damn insecure about her living with me since I am a guy. Even with the fact that I have my own GF and am more than happy with her. Pretty much after dating my romate after a month or two they start telling her that she should move out. When she tells me that I tell her "Eject Mavrick!" When I started dating my GF she knew I was living with a girl and I told her nothing ever went on and I wasnt going to make her move out if my GF couldnt handle it. They get along great, too great at times.

I'm certainly not denying that there's a transaction. Obviously I'm getting something out of it or I wouldn't do it. However, the prostitution or whore label is generally reserved for use when there is a monetary transaction.

taurusowner: Candygram4Mongo: taurusowner: Do the guy/girl numbers really have to be the same? Maybe I'm just stupid, but consider this.

Take 10 guys and 10 girls. 1 guy farks all 10 girls, the other 9 get none. The average for guys will be virtually 0 (.1) while the average for girls will be exactly 1.
.


Oh, not to be annoying, but that's just wrong. (10+9*0)/10=1, not 0.1, so still same average for both genders.
I am not insisting the numbers HAVE to be the same. I just would like to see a case in which, among equal numbers of heterosexual consenting adults, they are not. Because everyone keeps on saying I'm wrong about this, and I might be indeed... But where is the proof? I have yet to see a legitimate mathematical model.

Even one person isn't a contiuous spectrum.

I was in 3 or 4 serious relationships and had a couple of one night stands for a total of 6 around the time my fiance and I split up when I was 26.  That was also around the time my income tripled and I bought a sports car and started to work out a lot.  I was never buff, but I was in decent shape.

Money + nice car + decent shape + newly single and I upped my number to 19 in about 6 months.

Ended up marrying #20.....that was 10 years ago.

/But go on, clyph. Tell us allll about your creepy sex life, you sagging stud you.
 
2014-01-02 12:41:11 PM  
Ok I think I figured this out:

It has to do with whether you use the word "average" as a noun or an adjective. Take the following (extreme) example:

200 people: 100 men, 100 women.  Of the women: We have 99 virgins and one slut.  The slut has slept with all 100 men.


In this scenario:
The Average (noun) of sexual partners for men is one. (Each man has had sex with exactly one woman.)
The Average (noun) of sexual partners for women is one. (100 women / 100 sexual partners = 1) You can see here how your statistical slut has averaged out with your statistical virgins.

However, the "average woman" has had no sex that all, by a margin of 99 to 1 ("Average" here is used as an adjective describing the woman.)

Now, I can understand how "journalists" are sloppy with their language, they don't mean to say "The Average of sexual partners for men" may mean to say "the average man's number of sexual partners".  And I can understand how people are sloppy in their reading and don't understand the difference.

Therefore:
The Average (noun) of sexual partners for men MUST EQUAL The Average (noun) of sexual partners for women.  (given that each sexual partnering included one man and one woman)

However, the "average woman" may have a different number of sexual partners than the "average man" (although I doubt it, )

There, I fixed it for you.

Candygram4Mongo: How many women will the average man kiss? If your answer is NOT "fifteen," please show your math. Men kissing "invisible women" doesn't count.

Experiment: draw an equal number of circles and squares. Connect them with lines in a way that, on average, a circle has lines connecting to fifteen squares. I am guessing that now you will also have, on average, a square connecting to fifteen circles.

Am I wrong? Show me my mistake.


Averages can be the same for some very different frequency distributions.
 
2014-01-02 01:09:40 PM  
If the average hetero man is having 7 one-night stands, then the average hetero woman is also having 7 one-night stands.   It's always funny how they say men have so many more sexual experiences than women on the average, when that's clearly not the case.  Men are lying and saying they are having more sex than they are and women are lying and saying they are having less sex than they did.    A heterosexual one-night night adds one tally to the men's count and one to the women's count.  Divide by the number of men and women and you'll find the numbers match.

Of course frequency distribution might matter.  Perhaps there is a single woman that is having sex with every man that is skewing the results, but I find it more likely that people are just lying about their experiences to make themselves feel closer to the societal expectation for men and women.

It's not even that complicated. The article was talking about BEFORE you meet "the one". It says nothing about how many sexual partners during and afterwards. That's where it will typically even up.

simkatu: If the average hetero man is having 7 one-night stands, then the average hetero woman is also having 7 one-night stands.


Know how I can tell you've never taken a statistics class?   Statisticians don't say "average" because it's ambiguous.    They use "mean", "median", and "mode" (among others);   "average" can mean any of those things and more.

Mean is what you learned in elementary school: sum of the values divided by the number of values
Median is the value such that half the elements are above it and half are below it.
Mode is the value which occurs most frequently.

Let's say you've got 100 guys and 100 girls.  

Guys 1 - 10 all fark girls 1-16.  Guys 11-70 fark girls 1 - 8, plus one other girl nobody else farked (guy n farks girl n+6).  

Just to make it fun, let's assign some high school clique labels to the various groups.

So among guys you've got:
10 who got laid 16 times (the jocks)
60 who got laid  9 times  (the average guys)
30 who got laid 0 times. (the dorks)

And among girls you've got:
8 who got laid 70 times (the sluts)
8 who got laid 10 times (the cheerleaders)
60 who got laid 1 time (the average girls)
24 who got laid 0 times. (the uggos)


That's 700 acts of coitus divided by 100 people for each gender, for an arithmetic mean (aka an "average") of 7 acts of coitus per guy/girl.    However that doesn't tell the whole story, and it's not what we mentally visualize when we talk about an "average" person.   When we think about populations, we mostly visualize the modal group as being "average"/"normal".   Occasionally we visualize the median, rarely do we think in terms of the mean.   

The 60 "average" (modal) guys are farking 9 girls - they all have steady girlfriends, but they're all also banging the 8 sluts on the side, while their respective 60 "average" (modal) girlfriends are being faithful and have only farked their "average" boyfriend. 

The cheerleaders are just about tied with the "average" guys in terms of total partners, but they're not even close to the sluts who are farking everyone except the dorks.   Meanwhile, the jocks are getting jiggy with all the sluts AND all the cheerleaders and skewing the "average" (mean) for the guys, while the dorks and the uggos are all at home playing WoW and posting to Fark.

None of the "average" people had anywhere near the "average" number of partners.  You can also say that "on average", more girls than guys have had sex, but "on average" the guys have had more sexual partners.   

"Average" is such a nebulous word.   It can mean all sorts of different things, which is why people who know math (AKA people who weren't journalism majors) avoid using it.

Dude, I was in my 20's once, have the T-shirt, etc. Although for me it was dumped once and dumper 2nd time. Third time lucky (but she had already followed the postulate to the letter).

I see it happen to bandmates and employees all the time and it messes with their consistency. Also, it really irks me when bandmates "can't" take on a lot of gigs, practice, or whatever because the clingy control freak in stage 2 won't let them (hey, it's not like you are married and have kids!). Then she dumps him, goes into stage 3 and bandmate is utterly destroyed for about two months. shiat show for sure.

Bonus points if she shows up to a gig with her friends and tries to act all blasé and aloof (look at me, I'm having a great time and this doesn't affect anyone!), triple points if she shows to a gig with her new guy.

Seen it at least a half dozen times, maybe more. As my daughter would say... annoyin'

AGAIN! *THAT* STATISTICAL IMPOSSIBILITY!!!!1!

Yeah, about 30% of my partners have been men, but that's not how averages work.
 
2014-01-02 06:47:11 PM  

Dear Jerk: . Factor in the 10 sexual partners and that means if you kiss the girl, you have a 67% chance of getting her to bed, but only a 14% chance of getting roped into a relationship. I wish I had this information when I was younger.


Pretty much this, if a girl wants to mack on you, she'll likely sleep with you. Provided she's confident you won't start following her around like a lost puppy or assume you suddenly own her.
 
2014-01-02 06:50:12 PM  

clyph: And among girls you've got:
8 who got laid 70 times (the sluts)


It always seems that these configurations to prove that averages are irrelevant come up with a significant group of uber-whores who have sex more often than they change their underwear, and by contrast, there are no guys who even remotely approach this number. You had ten guys who got laid 16 times, presumably because the uber-sluts were complaining about chafing.

It always seems to come down to some bizarro explanation for the generally accepted assertion that "man [have] ten [partners] in their lifetime, compared to an average of seven for women.

I appreciate all your cautions about us unsophisticated noobs dabbling in words such as "average." You say it's "...such a nebulous word. It can mean all sorts of different things, which is why people who know math (AKA people who weren't journalism majors) avoid using it." Thank you for being concerned about me embarassing myself this way, but again, I ask: is there a mathematical model in which 1) men have ten partners, 2) women have seven, 3) there are no huge numbers of psycho sex fiends skewing the numbers in some outrageous way? Because that is the perceived wisdom, that a) people are mostly normal, and b) in a normal world, men have 30~40% more sex partners than women. Again, where is the math?
 
2014-01-02 06:55:27 PM  
Would it be easier if we took actual, you know, sex, out of the equation?

How about a dancing competition? 100 men, 100 women, changing partners, some finalists dancing more than some who wash out in the first round. Each dancing couple is, consistently, a man and a women, though not always the same man with the same woman. Several rounds of competition. Can you come up with a mathematical model in which one gender has 30~40% more dance partners than the other gender? Are there uber-dance whores involved? Or vast numbers of people who sign up for a dance competition and then sprain their ankles in the parking lot? How does it work??
