Five Sexual Partners? You've Blown Your Chance With Matthew Morrison
The interviewer fails to ask Morrison how many people he's slept
with, but that's not especially unusual because society's obsession
with The Magic Number
applies primarily to women, operating under the assumption that the
number of sexual partners a woman has had informs the quality of her
person. One has to wonder what pool Morrison is drawing from,
however. Assuming he's pursuing mostly American women (Glee is filmed in Los Angeles and Morrison hails from Fort Ord near Monterey, California) the pool of single women he can draw from and still take "seriously" is not enormous. A study from the Centers of Disease Control (PDF) puts the average number of sexual partners for an American female at around four, a Guttmacher Institute study states that 21.9% of single women between 22-40 have had two or more sexual partners in the past year and a Durex study puts lifetime partners at nine. Countries in Europe often clock in with similar or higher numbers.
Ladies! Slow down if you want to hop on Matthew Morrison's
Sex-and-Respect Train.At any rate, given Morrison's high standards, we
assume it's pretty difficult for him to find a girl these days,
especially in the fast-paced Hollywood circles he must travel in. So
we've made a handy wallet guide for him to clip and save.
When in doubt, whip this out at a party, Morrison.
