    In any population with a wide variation, talking about the mean usually doesn't make sense. You get into the situation where Bill Gates walking into a homeless shelter makes the 'average person' there a multi-millionaire.

    For things like numbers of partners, there is a very wide variation. Some - women and men - have loads, and some have one or none. The shape of the curve varies, but anyone who's been to a sex club knows that there are plenty of women who want casual sex with more partners than any of the men there can manage.
    Which is a complete straw man as I never claimed we should be talking about means, but that we should be talking about general trends, which is the only way you can discuss groups as large as male and female.

    Also completely unrelated but what on earth is a sex club?

    More often than not they want it just as much or more, they just aren't willing to be pro-active in getting it because the market is in their favour and women are naturally more passive in their pursuits. (Not meaning everyone but in general)

    I think we need to differentiate between high sex drive and wanting casual sex. They are both very different.
    I consider myself to have a high sexual drive, but also highly conditional about where the sexual comes from. Being simply physically attractive isn't enough to turn me on. If you take into consideration all of these behavioural factors, the pool of people I'm willing to sleep with becomes smaller and smaller.

    And lumping all men and all women together is foolish.

    I don't think there is an academically rigorous survey that has asked a significantly sized population something like 'if there were no adverse consequences, how many sexual partners would you like to have?' - which is what the OP needs to answer the original question.

    Somewhere people go to have anonymous casual sex. London has dozens of them, for example.

    Depends entirely on the individual, and stop automatically putting guys in the "desires casual sex" category you sexist ****. Anyone would think your sole purpose in life is to rack up a chick count.

    When I said just as much I basically meant to the same extent, calm down buddy.

    I meant in general. I hear some people say sex for girls is more about the emotional part than for guys however I'm not sure that's true if you assess all the evidence.
    What you mention there is a stereotype- but its impossible to generalise, because there are individual differences.

    Let me put it this way. I am a guy, but I wouldn't go near a girl who would ever be willing to have a one night stand/casual sex.

    I know that I am one of the few people in the world with this kind of opinion and I don't force it on others, some of my friends have had one night stand ect and it doesn't bother me.
    But for a relationship, if I found out a girl I liked was into casual sex, my feeling just disappear and I have no attraction towards them anymore, not sure why but it just happens.
    I solidly believe that sex without emotional attachment is worthless and kinda degrading.

    So when you say "As much as guys", as people above have said, it is a pointless question, everyone is different and gender means nothing. But for the sake of argument, I know more girls that have casual sex frequently than guys, and I mean way way more girls not just one or two.

    That not every individual conforms to a trend does not mean the trend doesn't exist. It's very possible to generalise: in general, women want sex less.

    Oh how wonderful, another "girls are aliens and I know nothing about them" thread created by an OP with both social anxiety and low self-esteem in equal quantities. Must we have a thread like this every week?


    For the Nth time girls are not as pure as your mummy told you. Get a grip.

    Do men really have stronger sex drives than women?

    Well, yes, they do. Study after study shows that men's sex drives are not only stronger than women's [...]
