In sitting down to write this, I briefly considered revealing to you the number of people that I’ve slept with, in an effort to brazenly demonstrate that the number doesn’t matter.
But then I thought about it some more, and decided against it. So to answer my own question, as posed above, I suppose that in the context of the world at large, it does matter, because whether we want to or not we all harbor a little bit of judgment about whores and virgins, and I, for one, don’t really want to open myself up to that.
But I think that in the context of the person you’re dating, the number doesn’t really matter, as long as a couple other things are present: an understanding of your own sexual past, why you did the things you did and what you learned from them, an idea of what you want sexually from your current relationship, and obviously, STD tests.
So if your number is 50, what was going on during the time you were boning with abandon? Was it for the joy of it, or was it for another reason? If it’s one, what happened there? And if it’s zero…well, why?
What do you think?
