Whether it’s a number you’d rather not know, or one you’re proud of, Lloyd’s Pharmacy in the UK has developed a “Sex Degrees of Separation” calculator that works out how many people you’ve indirectly slept with.
It’s not just a string of one-night-stands that could be taking up the notches on your bedpost, but your partners’ partner, their partners’ partner and so on.
It’s creepy. It’s entertaining. But it’s real purpose is to highlight how exposed you can be to STI’s and how this risk increases with each new partner. Did you know that over 50% of people will contract an STI in their lifetimes? Enough said.
So, the moral of the story is keep it safe and stay golden.
