BODY COUNT? Ladies seem to bear the brunt of its revelation! Would you rather tell or not?
Body count is generally referred to as the number of persons one has had sexual intercourse with deep regards to penetration.
“How many people have you gotten laid with?” “What is your body count?” has taken a first place in dating questions. And most times, it’s the guys policing the ladies with these questions. But of what pedigree? How does knowing the number of penetrations one has had in life concern the major qualities needed in a standard relationship? For me asking too many questions such as this triggers your partner to be on the defensive because he/she doesn’t want to be around you, walking on egg shells. The major question that should replace body count is “what is health status?” You can not underestimate how much good health can do in maintaining great body Counts. 😋😜😉 But on a serious note , I really don’t think anyone should give exact figures. Guys!!! This is deeply personal😁😁 c’mon!!!
It is true that in the course of a budding relationship, certain things about the partners are being explored, appreciated or criticised. But, the double standard of it all is the unfair judgement that heaps on LADIES especially those who reveal their body count in a bid to exude honesty and transparency and build some sort of trust. It is even worse when it is a 2 figure number; they are seen as easy, promiscuous, randy and grossly irresponsible all because… because of personal sexual exploits. phew! But the phenomenon is seemingly celebrated as a great feat when a guy talks about his own experiences and even with some exaggeration which we, the girls know. Haha! You know, anything to feel like the HERO – What a default crowning! The problem therefore is whether they are deserving of the title or not. Frankly speaking, however, It really tells HYPOCRISY to attribute ‘HOE-someness’ to only a particular tribe of humans for reasons unjustifiable and for exploits carried out by both genders and even more intense from the opposite side.
Personally, going about relationships with a placard of your body count is likened to ‘kiss and tell.’ Why would you even do that? Anyway, it’s a personal decision to make, and totally up to you to know what to do with your experience, whether to share or not. I trust we humans anyway, we only reveal what we want revealed. At the end of the day, there is no such truth as that told within. What really matters is the interest and relations with the people who won’t see you as unworthy as a result of the truth. Whatever happens though, be responsible for your mindset, do not miss out on fantastic exploits for fear of you know what! Meanwhile, Body count does not affect building great friendships/relationships with personalities so amazing, smart, empathic and with some characteristic shades of awesomeness.
