New Study Reveals Just How Slutty You Are

Ribald researchers last year determined that San Francisco's liberal values include endless lechery and unbridled promiscuity. But that study stopped short, giving us no indication of how many lovers is too many lovers.

Luckily for all you sex fiends out there, another crop of research has come out, indicating that 10 is just the right amount of sex partners to have to be considered a hot date. Fewer fucks than that, you are a prude, and if you've racked up more than 10 bedmates, well, you might be considered kinda slutty, according to a study released by, the world's largest sugar daddy site.

"With 10 lovers, you are neither too hot not too cold," the study claims.

Researchers interviewed 10,000 males and females who belong to the website, and found that roughly 45 percent of men said 10 lovers was the magic number. But women were looking for someone a little more wholesome, with about 35 percent saying they'd really like it if their next partner had fewer than 10 sexcapades.

A sexually liberated 13 percent of women were okay with their partners having had as many as 30 lovers, and only 4 percent of women said they actually prefer really experienced partners -- those who have had more than 30 lovers.

Sadly, the poll didn't include results on how these folks felt about 10 lovers simultaneously. That would have been a good read.

But let's face it, what you don't know won't hurt you (unless it's incurable). Not surprisingly, the poll concluded that 69 percent of women would rather not know about their partner's sexual past, whether it's two lovers or 100. Men felt similarly, with 57 percent saying they'd prefer to remain ignorant on the subject.

Just something to think about.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
