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

Lena Chen, Age 23, Writer

30: By the time I started my freshman year at Harvard University, I had already slept with five guys. The social scene at college was snobby, so I tried to meet people from other schools. That's when my number started rising. I was sleeping with so many guys that I became a novelty on campus, and some guys starting bragging that they had had sex with me when they hadn't. In order to keep track of the men, I decided to keep a record. I created a Word document of the men I had slept with, making notes on their sexual prowess and other details of our trysts.

When I was a freshman, I had sex with a senior in the Hebrew-literature section of Harvard's Widener Library.

I've always been very frank about the topic of sex. And in college I started a blog called "Sex and the Ivy," where I began graphically detailing my sexual escapades. When I passed the URL to four friends, I had no idea my blog would go viral. The New York Times picked it up, and people called me "whore" and the Ivy League Carrie Bradshaw.

When my number hit 30, my friends planned to throw me a party and invite all 30 men. But that idea was scrapped when I actually began dating number 30. We're still together, three years later.

While I have no problem with monogamy, I don't believe in marriage. It's great for tax benefits, but I don't need a ring on my finger to feel secure. In fact, if a guy insisted on marrying me, the relationship would be over.
