For Grown-Ups Only

I just found out that, according to Lloyd's Pharmacy,  I have slept (directly or indirectly) with 2,226,364 men.

You'd think I'd know more about it, wouldn't you?  Because seriously, I do NOT remember that!

But according to the Sex Degrees of Separation calculator, it's true. 

In an effort to encourage safe sex, Lloyd's Pharmacy in London has put up an online calculator which uses averages to calculate the "real" numbers of people you may have had - uh- contact with.  I think they're counting on selling a LOT of  you know, "pharmacy products" after they put you in shock with your outrageous number of partners.  And after just looking at that number, I'm kinda feeling like I might need some pharmacy products myself.    Disinfectants mostly.

It's an interesting and creative advertising ploy... but if they were going for shocking, they missed the mark.  Because I think the idea that vast numbers of people are immoral is kind of commonplace at this point.

If they wanted shocking - here's an idea:  how about a campaign using the words abstinence, monogamy, and fidelity?

THAT would be shocking.  Heck, if they used those words enough, I bet the ACLU would get involved and everything!



I'm going to take a nap now.  I must be exhausted.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure my number is only one. As is my husband's.

Wow! You been busy girl - ha ha J/K!
What a crazy advertising ploy I like yours much better!

Becky said...

Gosh, I'm behind. :)

Chief said...

hmmm...i wonder how I would fare in that calculator?

What the.....?!

You slut! ;-) Seriously. Talk about ridiculous.

2.2 million isn't immoral--it's impossible! Something is seriously wrong with their marketing ploy.

What????

Emmy said...

Lol! How in the world did they even get that figure?? That is so stupid.

Tay said...

At least you have a number. I tried it and my number is 0. Yup. I apparently am married without having direct or indirect sex. Our child was made by immaculate conception. I guess I should have named him Jesus.

Dave said...

Why aren't there input values for people younger than 16?

This is blatant ageism, and as soon as the ACLU figures that out I'm sure they will get involved.

I'm surprised that you still have time to blog with all of your "extracurricular activities". :)

So confused at that one, I have the same answer as you.... hmmm.

Lee said...

I clicked it and my number was something like 92,000 that I either slept with "directly or indirectly." How do you INDIRECTLY sleep with somebody?

mormonhermitmom said...

I agree with Lee. That's like being "indirectly pregnant". Oh! You indirectly sleep with someone to GET "indirectly pregnant".

I'm so out if it (AGAIN).

I wasn't going to say anything, Randi - but since you brought it up...

I always thought number 1,563,477 was all wrong for you. Honestly, I never knew what you saw in him.

I think a GREAT Christmas present for the Brain would be a t-shirt that says, simply, #2,226,364.

Well dang. Remember our old friend Wendy? Well she and I figured out that by the time you're married 20 years you've had sex about 2000 times. This was right in the year 2000 we figured this out. So we both bought "graduation" necklaces that said "2000" for our private joke. Unfortunatly we both had kids that graduated that year and her daughter found the necklace and was all excited that Wendy bought a graduation necklace for her. And of course she had to give it up and not explain the REAL reason for the necklace. (I still have mine ;>) My graduater was a boy :)
So. We thought we were pretty clever but - well, I'll see if they have a necklace with your number on it.....
I feel like such a slacker.

Ha! I heard about this on some podcast my husband was listening to (it said something about the average person having slept with so many millions of people. VERY interesting. And VERY dumb.

I'm all over your campaign idea, lady.

Katrina said...

Wow - that's a lot of people to be with. I am almost afraid to see what crazy number they'd come up with for me - not that it shold be more than a couple of million - lol, in disgust!

I think that a campaign with abstinence, monogamy, and fidelity would be wonderful - at least we can influence our own kids!

Great blog!
