You've Had the Same Number of "Romantic Partners" as Your Mom

November 15, 2018

Hey look, it's a subject that everyone wants to talk about: How many people their mom has had sex with! There's a new study out of Ohio State University that looked at more than 7,000 mothers and their children, and they found an unexpected connection. The number of, quote, "romantic partners" you've had is probably right around the same number your mom had.  And that's true even if you never witnessed her in most of those relationships.

So that means if you've dated and gotten-it-on with a ton of people guess who else has too? The researchers say it's probably because our mothers pass on relationship skills to us, which influences how we interact with everyone including people in our dating life. The researchers didn't find any connection between a father's number of romantic partners and his kids' number.
