"One's a virgin, another has slept with 50 men... can you guess how many lovers these women have had? You may be surprised..." Why yes, this is the Daily Mail! And no, actually you won't be.
Actually, whether or not you're in the habit of making snap judgments about the number of partners a woman's had based on her appearance, you won't have a chance to guess: each of the five subjects (whose partner-rates range from 0 to 50) has the magic number emblazoned across her picture...in red.
How they got anyone to participate in this — from the virgin to the mother of four (5) - I could not begin to guess. Each one gives an itemized list of her partners, talks about losing her virginity and, to a woman, ends up with "the one." The point, I guess, is to discourage us from making assumptions about these things — but we weren't planning to, until this article invited us to guess and defined them, for these few paragraphs, completely by their number of partners. All we came away with is that we're never, ever going to agree to do a fluff piece with the Daily Mail - and that Shelly (50)'s belt is really nice and we'd like to know where to find it.
