It’s a question we all ask at the start of a new relationship: Should we tell our partner how many people we’ve had sex with before he or she came around?
“Some people are concerned with being too far above average because it will make them look promiscuous,” says Justin Lehmiller, a sex researcher at Ball State University. “Others are concerned with being too far below average because it will make them look inexperienced.” Meanwhile, Sean Horan, an assistant professor at Texas State University, recommends showing mutual vulnerability with statements like, “Just as you have a past, I have a past.”
