Research team explores how number of sex partners differ by height and body mass

Chapman University has published research on how many sex partners people have relative to their height and body mass. The study focused on 60,058 heterosexual men and women asking each to indicate their height, weight, and how many sex partners they have had. The median number of “sex partners” reported for both men and women ages 30 to 44 was eight partners since they have been sexually active. Overall, 58 percent of men and 56 percent of women reported having more than five partners, and 29 percent of men and 23 percent of women reported having more than 14 partners. Some of the findings about the links between sexual history, height, and body mass were surprising and did not fall neatly in line with evolutionary or sociocultural theories. —> Read More
