Women are now far more promiscuous than men, says shock new study.

But viewers who think the 'anything goes'
sexual antics in Sex And The City is fiction
should perhaps think again.
Life, it would appear, is more than a match
for art.

Young women are becoming more
promiscuous, with more sexual partners than
men, researchers have found. By the age of 21 they have had sex with an average of nine lovers - two more than their male partner.

And a quarter have slept with more than ten
partners in the five years since losing their
virginity - compared with a fifth of young
men.

Young women are also twice as likely to be
unfaithful, with 50 per cent admitting they
have cheated on a partner - half at least
twice.

Yet if their man was caught being unfaithful,
99 per cent of the 2,000 women surveyed
said they would show him the door.

The sex survey, for More magazine, also found
women crave more sex but still believe men
enjoy it more than they do.

The survey follows a U.S. study earlier this
year that found teenage girls who watch a lot
of TV shows with a high sexual content, such
as Friends and Sex And The City, are twice as
likely to become pregnant.

The researchers for that study concluded:
'One problem is that these and similar
programmes glamorise sex while hardly
mentioning its downsides, such as pregnancy
and sexually transmitted diseases.'

Lisa Smosarski, editor of More, suggested that
there will be no turning back for today's
sexually confident young women. 'Our results
show that after decades of lying back and
thinking of England, today's twenty-something
women are taking control of their sex lives
and getting what they want in bed. And why
not?

'Women today have increasingly busy and
stressful lives juggling study, jobs, friends,
family, career and their relationships,' she
said.

'Sex is a great and free way to relax, unwind
and have fun in today's fairly stressful
society.'

The survey found more than half of the
women were not in love with the person to
whom they lost their virginity.

And only 32 per cent believed love to be an
important factor before having sex. Seven out
of ten confessed to having had a one-night
stand and a fifth had enjoyed more than five.
Only 1 per cent said they would wait until
marriage to have sex.

One in four said they would marry for money
whilst 39 per cent would sleep with their boss
for a promotion. And 27 per cent would have
an affair with a married man, while 14 per
cent would sleep with their best friend's
partner.

The study was carried out to launch More's
safe sex campaign, which starts this week.
It found that almost a fifth of the young
women surveyed had contracted a sexually
transmitted disease while 21 per cent had
been persuaded by a man not to use a
condom when they wanted to.

Miss Smosarski said: 'Whilst women aren't
embarrassed to take the lead in the bedroom,
it seems they're not so forthright when it
comes to contraception.

"Run! Run for the hills! The promiscuous women are out to get you!!"

I won't be surprised if that's the next dailymail article published.

It's easier for women to get laid.

Having said that, the article is a load of crap.

Sex and the city and friends both finished ten years ago - are they stuck in a time warp?

How can women ever be more promiscuous than men? If, for simplicity, we assume that all sexual liaisons occur between precisely one man and precisely one woman, we see that the 'promiscuity score' of each sex is exactly equal.

Surely that stat about 50% of women cheating can't be true? If it is, that's just depressing...

It doesn't work like that in the real world. A small percentage of men are sleeping with a lot of women. These men are the Alpha Males in society.

If women are more sexually promiscuous than men, that means we can be proud of our achievements in female liberation. Not because sleeping with a bunch of people is something to be proud of, but because it's better than the default position of humanity which is that women are constantly in fear of becoming pregnant or being locked into (often polygamous) "marriages" (i.e. oppression). The UK stamped that out a while ago.

Even if that were true, the averages would even out as every heterosexual sexual encounter requires one man and one woman. The only way you could get results any different would be to only count the people who have had sex, or have sex at least once every six months, or whatever.

Same way a small percentage of women are sleeping with a lot of guys. These are the "promiscuous" women in society

Your claim makes little sense. On average, each woman is sleeping with a guy, so each sex will be equally promiscuous. There are the guys that sleep with a lot of girls, who are in a minority. Then there are the girls that sleep with lots of guys, who are generally in the minority. You could argue there more promiscuous women around than "alpha males", but these women are sleeping with more than just the "alpha guys" as you have it. So things will more or less balance out.
