Hey kids! Some British researchers are here to remind you that you should be anxious about whether you've had too many or too few sexual partners. Researchers at the UK dating site Illicit Encounters have determined that there is a "goldilocks" number of sexual experiences—a history that's "just right."

The researches found that 10 is the magic number—"not too hot and not too cold."

Ten sexual partners means that you've logged enough experience to be skilled, sort of like Malcolm Gladwell's "10,000 hours" theory. Less would classify you as "inexperienced," and more would make you "promiscuous."

According to The Telegraph, the study also found:

  • Between 8-12 lovers was by far the most popular answer — chosen by 38% of women and 37% of men. Within that group, 10 lovers was considered best.
  • Men, in particular, are more wary of women who had a score higher than 10.
  • Any figure above 20 was a big turn-off to men and women — chosen by 3% of women and 4% of men.
  • Just 35% of women wanted to know a man's total.
  • For men, only 30% wanted to know a woman's sexual history.
