Everyone’s got a number. A number of past partners, the age they lost their virginity, the number of times you got laid this week (or didn’t)—whatever it may be, the past is the past. However, you’re not the only one with a little history. Here’s how her numbers stack up. Go on, we know you’re curious.
1. How old was she when she lost her virginity?
Almost half of women give away their V-card before they graduate high school.
26% by age 15
40% by age 16
49% by age 17
70% by age 18
77% by age 19
81% by age 21
92% by age 24

2. How many partners has she had?
You may be surprised to learn that most Americans are pretty conservative when it comes to the number of people they’ve slept with. Get this: Women ages 25 to 44 have had a median of four male sexual partners, while men have had six female partners. Only 9% of women have been with 15 or more guys (22% of men claim to have had the same number of women).

3. How does she define sex?
What you consider sex, she might not—or visa versa. Almost 45% consider manual genital stimulation to be having sex, 71% say oral sex is the real deal, and 81% believe anal-genital intercourse counts.

4. How often does she think about sex?
If you think you’re the only one thinking about sex all day, you’re wrong. It turns out women think about sex 10 times a day, on average, which is actually not much more often than food or sleep. Who knew?
