Much as I hate to do so, I was about to disagree with Ezra on the “mathematical impossibility” of men having more sexual partners than women. I mean, it’s easy enough to think that if men are having tons of sex, they must be having it with someone. Right? Just when I was about to point out the assumption that men would have to be having all that sex with women, I read the article. It’s really more like this: “It is logically impossible for heterosexual men to have more partners on average than heterosexual women. Well, that makes a lot more sense. But there’s just one possibility that the researchers don’t seem to consider. According a study done just last year, at least some of those men may be among the 10% of self-identified “straight” men who have sex with men. Sure, it’s not much, but if they’re counting all their partners and just not telling, that would throw your count off.
