more people who havent slept with many people then...
But I'm not sure how many adults that includes across the country as a whole. I suspect it's a far lower percentage than many would assume.
there are a lot of people that have only slept with one person. this is going to bring down the averages for everyone that has slept with 30 people

Then aye, I would say there's going to be hell of sample bias, if not actualy, outright LIES
Men claim to have slept with far more than they have, women far less and you probably still end up with accurate research overall...
gender comparisons; whereupon the figures would then suggest that men are somehow having a lot more sex than women. Possibly they're all taking turns with a bow-legged woman from Birmingham.

What kind of devilry are you referring to? men kiss ladies, not other men!
although homosexuality was illegal in Victorian times, Queen Victoria wouldn't make lesbianism illegal as she refused to believe women did that.
left that word out.
It's around that though, isn't it?
hence the "really?" bit of my post, see it, it's just up there ^^^^
