Someone has crunched the numbers and revealed the average number of sexual partners UK males have.
Drawing on data from 35 countries, Manual - a men’s mental health platform - has pulled up loads of stats about the ‘average’ man’s sexual history and there’s quite a bit of range across the globe.
Despite what your mates might say down the pub, the average UK bloke only has sex with 9.8 partners across their lifetime - of the 35 countries, the UK was pretty mid-table in 16th place.
Top of the list was Turkey, with 14.5, followed by Australia with 13.3, trailing just behind was fellow antipodeans in New Zealand with 13.2, Iceland and South Africa filled out the top five with 13 and 12.5 respectively. Of the 35 countries, the UK was pretty mid-table in 16th place.
On the opposite end of the scale, in 30th place was Poland with 6, Malaysia and Germany both on 5.8, followed by Slovakia with 5.4, China with 3.1 and India at the bottom of the table with 3.
Dr Earim Chaudry, Medical Director of Manual, said: “While people in some countries prove to have more sexual partners than others, it is important not to compare yourself to these figures.
“Safe, consensual sex should always also be practised, and the number of sexual partners does not correlate with a man’s level of satisfaction with their sex life.”
Elsewhere, the data also shared the average age that UK men lose their virginity - 18.3 years.
The youngest was Iceland, where it was 15.6, followed by Denmark at 16.1, Sweden at 16.2 and Norway at 16.5.
Meanwhile, Malaysia had the highest at 23; India was 22.9 and China 22.1.
Dr Earim Chaudry added: “Our research shows that the age men lose their virginity can differ around the world. In places with what could be thought of as a more liberal view on sex, including many European countries, we can see that the average age is lower.
“While we can see differences in countries, it is important to remember that men from all over the world should only have sex when they feel ready.”
