The question of the amount of sexual partners plays into every insecurity we are brought up to have about sex. It's the great unknown for a large percentage because it's a hush-hush topic that is impossible to talk about without two very important key elements: an openminded and trusted group of peers and the lowering (or eliminating) of your own inhibitions. I will tell you for a fact - the happiest relationships in the world are amongst those who can get a little debased and freaky with each other. Now, I'm not suggesting that they (necessarily) have to be doing anything too nasty but part of human nature is that we are sexual creatures and we owe it to ourselves to tap into that. I truly feel sorry for people to whom sex is simply functional and not a form of expression.
So I refute your "studies" as being created to produce a desired outcome. Think about it, "studies" need to be backed and funded. Who do you think does that? That's right - people who will benefit from them.
