It's the secret to life and one of our most intimate moments... The cosmic ballet of bedroom debauchery has obsessed the human race since ancient man discovered what to do with the old unmentionables, and now - a few million years later - what goes on behind the closed door has become the stuff of tabloid gossip and media obsession.
It's fair to say, also, that the number of people you've slept with can come with some unwelcome stereotypes. Whether it's accusations of being a floozy for enjoying your sexual liberation, or the assumption that you must be revolting or inhibited if you've slept with comparatively few people, society attempts to define us between these two poles, whether or not the stereotypes are useful or true.
That said, it's clear that The Experience changes a person. Perhaps you're more confident after a night in the hay, with an extra spring in your step, or maybe you're the kind of person who retreats into their shell a little and just wants a cuddle.
Drawing on these qualities - of how intimacy can affect your personality, we've designed a quiz that accurately predicts the number of people you've slept with.
Naturally, it would be impossible to predict the exact number, but after rigorous testing we've managed to narrow our algorithmic predictions down to a particular range - the spikes on a graph that most people fall into. After all, it's fairly unlikely that you've slept with upwards of 200 people. Of course, if you have, who are we to judge?
And, no, 'being in the same bed' doesn't count.
About Eighties Kids ▼▲
Founded in 2016, Eighties Kids started small. Beginning as a blog posting on 80s and 90s life as well as the movies, music and television of the era, Eighties Kids has in a short space of time exploded in scope and ambition. Operating out of Eighties Kids HQ in sunny Ilkley, in the North of England, today a growing team of writers produces original content day in and day out for one of the best new nostalgia sites on the web.
With the site also growing beyond its original remit, the Eighties Kids team now covers not just trivia from the 80s and 90s, but pop culture of all decades that’s of interest to children of the 80s, 90s and beyond. From shocking and obscure fact posts on your favourite movies and bands, to quizzes on classic TV shows and film franchises, to picture galleries on celebrities from past and present, Eighties Kids is here to take you down memory lane, test your knowledge of classic pop culture and maybe even occasionally blow your mind.
