What makes someone a "slut?" (Male or female)

How many sexual partners is "too many?"

I've been thinking about this every since I read Julie Robinson's piece on "Ten lessons only a slut can teach you." Somehow that morphed into how many partners makes one a slut? I am in my mid-forties and only married for the first time when I was 44. I never was into one night stands and I didn't pick up easy action in bars, however my total is way higher than the seven sexual partners the "average" man is supposed to have in his life.

Am a I a "male slut?" A Playa? I never went to bed with a woman I didn't want to wake up with the next morning.
