Or change it to Charles or James. And date a woman named Vanessa. Because according to a new survey by SmartDate.com, your name may have something to do with how many sexual partners you’ll have.
After asking 19,300 men how many sexual partners they’ve had in their lifetime, they found that men with names ending with the letter S are more likely to have multiple sex partners than guys with non S-ending names. (No word on the effect changing it to “Ochocinco” has…)
In fact, six of the top 10 most sexually active men have names ending in S: Chris (#1), Charles (#2), Dennis (#4), James (#7), Marcus (#8), and Thomas (#10). They all claimed more than 10 lifetime sexual partners, with guys named Chris and Charles claiming more than 11.3 and 11.1 respectively. The average for all men surveyed was 5.2 partners. Rounding out the top 10 were: Matt (#3), Luke (#5), Steve (#6), and Jack (#9).
In the bottom 10, the guys with the least sexual partners, not one had a name that ended in S. And for those of you named Edward, you might want to consider a name change. You were the lowest of the low, with just 1.1 lifetime sexual partners. Coming in a close 2-9 on that list were Dylan, Frank, Jason, Grant, David, Phillip, Harry, Brian, and Bruce. All had under 2 lifetime sexual partners.
And if you’re looking to hook up with a sexually active woman, find one whose name ends in A. Because when SmartDate asked 21,700 women about their number of sexual partners, 8 of the top 10, and the first 7, all had names ending in the letter A: Vanessa (#1), Angela (#2), Tamara (#3), Diana (#4), Sheila (#5), Lydia (#6), Jessica (#7), and Emma (#9). Rounding out the top 10 were Megan (#8) and Renee (#10).
All the A-name women claimed between 9 and 10 sexual partners, with Vanessas bedding an average of 10.2 men during their lifetime. The average for all women was 4.4 partners.
And if you’re wondering which women would be least likely to sleep around, they would be the ones named Dorothy. (Sorry Scarecrow.) They’ve only had 1.3 sexual partners on average. Joining them in the bottom 10 are: Jean, Michelle, Shirley, Heather, Faith, Mary, Susan, Helen and Emily. All with under 2.4 partners.
So the next time you’re in a bar and meet a woman whose name ends is Dorothy, does that mean you should bail? Of course not. But you might want to ask if she has a friend named Vanessa.
