This Sex Calculator App Will Make You Feel Pretty Ashamed Of Yourself

This Sex Calculator App Will Make You Feel Pretty Ashamed Of Yourself

The Debrief: Slate.com's sex calculator will judge you against data taken from nuns. It must do. Surely...

Did you know that the average millennial is so prudish they will only have sex with eight people in their lifetime. Eight! If that makes you feel a bit weird then brace yourself because Slate.com have made an app that is set to make you feel prettttty ashamed about the number of people you've slept with.

They introduce the app by saying: 'You, dear reader, are a human being. And as a human being, you are naturally curious, a little bit self-conscious, and maybe even competitive about sex. At some point you’ve almost certainly thought about the number of people you’ve slept with and wondered: Is that normal? Wonder no more.'

'Enter your stats into our new calculator, and, based on your age and gender, it will tell you exactly which percentile you fall into when it comes to how many partners you’ve hopped in the sack with.'

And we, dear reader, fell well into the 90th percentile. Which is technical speak for we've slept with more people than 98% of our 'peer group' (this peer group being the study of 13,000 people for the General Social Survey, presumably taking a little time to do it inbetween washing their robes and praying and lighting candles and doing whatever nuns do when they're not making us sexually liberated sorts feel like freaks).

The app comes with a warning that, no, they won't use your data anywhere else, but we'd like app to actually take our data, so that it recalibrates all results around the fact that no WAY have we slept with more people than some of our actual, IRL mates have!
