The Double Digit Double Standard

Recently in my class, my professor divided the room by gender and we were allowed to ask the opposite gender anything we wanted; no topic was off limits.

One young lady brought up the “number” issue. How important is the number of people a girl or guy has slept with?   Some male students said, “Ignorance is bliss,” and that they wouldn’t ask because, “You don’t want to know mine and I don’t want to know yours.”

In some men’s eyes, women need to be innocent – not having a lot of sexual partners – yet they need to be good and experienced in bed. However, on the other hand, the more women a man sleeps with the cooler he is.

Sounds like a pretty big double standard to me.
