The anonymous online survey is a pretty good way for collecting statistics about sexual relations between persons or other aspects of intimate area of human life. In contract with other research methods, the user can feel free without correspondent, not being limited in time and just remember or count where it need. Also he can avoid that type of statistical bias that may arise in talking between people or partners when one of them is afraid to say the real figures or name the real facts that could be out of potential expectations of the second partner.

One more feature regarding the question is than people of different ages (old or young) answering the question based on the experience of life up to the present time. So these statistics is not the general average number of sexual partners in a people life, but the number of partners up to date for each respondent. To get the more comprehensive average number of sexual partners you can try to look on the statistics for more mature age respondents. The argument against it - there is no any certainty that the number of sexual partners among today's youth will be the same as the data for the older generation.

Using statistical calculator you can view data by male-female. It could be strange to see that the number of female sex partners, typically less than for men according to the graph. Moreover, in general, if men and women say truth the average number should be equal for both groups. The mismatches in histogram profiles (or, to be more precise - different medians values for these groups, please do not confuse this number with the average value) is possible if different number of people in each groups have a large number of sexual relations.
