The average number of sexual partners for men in the UK has been revealed – so how does YOUR man compare? 0 115

DO you know how many previous partners your man has had?

The average number of sexual partners men have across the globe has been revealed in a new study.

The data discovered that UK men are NOT the sleaziest in the world, which may come as a surprise for some of us.

The research carried out by Manual – a men’s mental health platform, found that British men have sex with 9.8 partners on average, across their lifetime.

This put them in 16th place for the number of sexual partners in the study of 35 countries.

Top of the list was Turkey, with 14.5, followed by Australia with 13.3.

At the bottom end of the scale in 30th place was Poland with 6, while Malaysia and Germany both had 5.8 partners.

They were followed by Slovakia with 5.4, China with 3.1 and India very bottom of the table with 3 partners.

The data also found that on average, UK men lose their virginity at the age of 18.3 years.

The youngest age was in Iceland, where it was at 15.6, followed by Denmark at 16.1, Sweden at 16.2 and Norway at the age of 16 and 6 months.

Meanwhile, Malaysia had the highest age for men losing their virginity at 23, followed by India at 22.9 and China at the age of 22.1.

Medical Director of Manual, who carried out the survey, Dr Earim Chaudry said: “While people in some countries prove to have more sexual partners than others, it is important not to compare yourself to these figures.

“Safe, consensual sex should always also be practised, and the number of sexual partners does not correlate with a man’s level of satisfaction with their sex life.”

Dr Earim Chaudry said: “Our research shows that the age men lose their virginity can differ around the world. In places with what could be thought of as a more liberal view on sex, including many European countries, we can see that the average age is lower.

“While we can see differences in countries, it is important to remember that men from all over the world should only have sex when they feel ready.”

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
