In this week’s installment of stupid I give you the latest craptastic survey done, not surprisingly, by a dating site. In an effort to link a woman’s name with the number of sexual partners she has had, a French company surveyed a group of ladies. They concluded that women whose names end with A are more likely to sleep around:
“The survey, conducted by Smartdate and printed in 20minutes.fr, found that on average, women have 4.4 sexual partners during their lifetimes, but gals with names finishing in “a” have more — specifically Laura (9.7 partners), Tania (9.6) and Lola (9.5).”
May I suggest that next they try to prove that people whose favorite color is green are money grubbing whores, or those named Jennifer have a preference for thongs, or better yet, women with the name Harriet never shave their legs. Right. find the whole thing silly and slightly offensive, but at the same time does it even really matter? Does the number of sexual partners a woman has had really say anything about her as a person? To me it seems like a non-issue, and frankly, it makes me wonder if the person tallying the results of this survey may have had one to many run-ins with a girl whose name ended in an A.
Even the folks over at Smartdate admitted that a large number of women who completed the survey had names ending in A. You don’t say!? I think that perhaps that would sway things a bit. Still – I have to ask our fine readers, does your name end with an A? Do you think there is any truth to this study? Moreover, are you within what’s considered the ‘average’ amount of sexual partners – 4.4 over the course of a lifetime? I personally find 4.4 sexual partners in a lifetime to be on the low side, but maybe I am hanging out with too many girls whose names end with an A.
