The first note reads:
"For the record, a 2007 US survey indicated that the average American man has seven sexual partners in his life while the average American woman has four; only 29% of American men and 9% of women have had more than fifteen partners, indicating that the number is actually rather lower than on television, and that somebody must have lied."

I am not sure if the last sentence is warranted. Must the numbers for men and women match up? And what if gay guys are more active than lesbians?

Those statistics are for opposite sex partners.

...not the same statistics, I know, but it makes my point, I think.

Average sex partners?

Is that average as in add everything up and divide by the population, or average as in 50% of the population have fewer and 50% of the population have more? We need to know, plus how to get into that top 50 percentile.

...or even the top 75%-ile :(

That second thing is median. Also, percentile is how many are BELOW you. So being in the 75th percentile would mean you'd banged more people than three quarters of the rest of us had.

And the average that is posted was based on a survey of a random sample of people.

Oh, and remember that that average is almost certainly skewed upwards because of the simple fact that, while everyone has at least zero sexual partners (you can't have sex with negative people), there is functionally no upper limit other than that dictated by your free time and charisma.

Would screwing a ghost be a negative?

No, but having a ghost anti-rape the last sexual experience out of you might.
