Sex Sex Sex and Some More Sex

So I’m a moderator over at Rhythmism.com, a New York dance music/party/lifestyle/general blah blah blah type messageboard. I’m actually the guy in charge of the sex forum, or Carnalism as we call it. My appointment to such a website was really based on a long string of misunderstandings and incorrect assumptions, but whatever.

Anyway, today we decided to have a quick survey and just ask everyone how many sexual partners they’ve had in bracketed poll form: men and women, women and men, men and men and women and women. You get the point.  One point that should be mentioned is that since I’m a moderator over there I would, technically, be able to see who answered what.

Not surprisingly, the men answered very openly and often. Meanwhile the women hardly answered at all. Now considering that I know most of the women that would be answering this question, do you think that this is more a reflection on myself (people being modest towards me), the general nature of men and women (i.e. men wanting to brag and women being modest), a reflection of society imposing its sexist agenda upon the internet or something else?

It should also be mentioned that gay guys are total sluts – with most answering in the 30 to infinity rang – and it was suggested that we add an extra zero on to the end of their poll answers so that they can more correctly ballpark the scores of hot gay sexual encounters they have had.

Also, as you can imagine anytime you use the word “poll” around a sex forum, all kinds of hilarity ensues.


  1. Dave, you’re a funny guy and I can imagine you sitting there, beer in hand reading the results lauhing hysterically at the responses.

  2. That is exactly what I was doing.

    So far we’ve had over fifty responses on the guys’ poll and roughly twelve on the womens’.

    This whole experiment is bringing up sad images of Schrodinger’s cat caught in a kitty three way.

  3. >>the general nature of men and women (i.e. men wanting to brag and women being modest) >>

    I’d say it’s a relic of the old opinion that it’s OK (and even encouraged) for men to have many sex partners — that it’s something for them to brag about — but that it’s definitely NOT OK for women to have multiple partners. Even on an NYC party/sex forum, where I’m sure people feel free to talk about anything and everything, a certain percentage of the women will feel constrained by social inhibitions and not want to reveal the exact extent of their sexual past. They may not like those inhibitions or want to admit to themselves that they feel them, but it’s still difficult for them to come right out in public (especially to someone they know) and announce that they’ve slept with 15 men and 2 women. Personally, I’d answer that sort of question anonymously, but I wouldn’t answer it with my name attached (well, I would to certain people, but not to others — again, the whole social inhibition thing).

    Or … maybe the women on your forum have had such extensive and interesting sexual experiences that they didn’t want to make the guys feel inadequate, and they decided it would be kinder for the guys’ egos if they just didn’t answer. 😉
