Love In Numbers: 5 Reasons Your Sex Number Doesn't Matter


Plus, genius quotes about dating from celebrities, and 5 ways Facebook has ruined dating.

5 Reasons your number doesn't matter: There's been a lot of talk about "sex numbers" this week thanks to Anna Faris' new movie, What's Your Number? We here at YourTango are even running a contest where, if you tell us how many people you've slept with (or your "best ex") you can win autographed goodies from the film. I couldn't bring myself to write my number. The idea of revealing it gives me a kind of anxiety that I used to feel as a self-conscious middle schooler. I just feel really uncomfortable with people knowing that private information about me. But, according to an article written by sex expert Debby Herbenick for The Daily Beast, it doesn't even matter if I were to write 5, 10, 15, or 20, because there are so many differentiating factors that make up one's "number," no one can really take it at face value. Interesting... then again, I'm still not revealing mine! Here are some more countable tidbits from around the web this week:
