Interesting discussion in the break room today.
How many sex partners do you have to have before it becomes unimportant whether you have sex with someone or not. One of the girls said once she hit around 15 partners, it didn't matter any longer. If she went out with someone and he wanted sex, she didn't care. She liked sex and felt there was no reason not to have it.
One other girl said she didn't think it mattered either. She's probably had more partners than any of us.
In my case, before my husband, I had sex with four other guys. The first was my high school boyfriend. After him, I went to college and dated several guys without having sex with them. When I finally did, it was with a guy I saw several times before we slept together. I might have wound up with him if I hadn't taken a year off to be with my mother while she was dying.
After she died, I went back to school. I dated several guys without having sex. I did have sex with two guys who were kinda FWB guys. The sex was good with one and horrible with the other.
After I got out of college I dated a few guys but didn't feel like hopping into bed with any of them until Carson came along and I dated him several times before we had sex.
Honestly, I can see getting to a point where it wouldn't matter but I think I was still a ways from that point.
