What's Your Number? 5 Women Tally Up Their Sexual Score

6: I think my number is pretty low. I just turned 30, and I've been in the same relationship for 11 years, so I missed out on that crazy period in your 20s when you're supposed to have fun and sleep around.

Even though I have no intention of ending my relationship with my boyfriend (after all, he's the father of my two sons), I'm secretly more interested in women than I am in men. It's rare that I meet a guy whom I'm very attracted to. I can look at a guy and objectively think that he's hot, but I'll seldom feel anything toward him. I mainly just fantasize about women.

I was a late bloomer, and in the school locker room, I used to stare at the girls' developing bodies. At first I just figured it was curiosity. I have small boobs, so staring at the girls felt more like fascination and awe than sexual attraction. But after high school, I came to terms with the fact that I just find women more sexually arousing than men. My friends weren't surprised.

My boyfriend knows that I'm attracted to women, and he's OK with it. I think we'll probably get married, but we'll need to work out some sort of arrangement where I can see women on the side. The guy I end up with has to be comfortable with my sexual orientation.

I don't have a burning desire to increase my number, but if I had sex with a few more guys, it wouldn't make a big difference since my number is so low to begin with. I hate the fact that guys can sleep with as many women as they want and no one makes them feel bad about it. Why can't women do it, too?
