    Something that I have always wondered about.......

    Why do people say that they have slept with X many people, when in reality, they have only ever shagged them!

    I have only ever slept with 5 men in my life - but have shagged more

    But what do you think of what people say?

    maybe a more interesting number would be 'how many people have you stayed awake with?'

    I assume because you generally do it in a bed? In ye olden days didn't people used to say "lay with" ... might come from that!

    And because people are generally wimps about being blatent! They'd rather "hint" - It's like having "womanlies" or being "on" rather than having a period.

    Same reason we go the toilet/bathroom/for a wee/number 2 rather than for a shit/dump/piss/to stink the place out?

    I think the same as others it is a polite way of saying shagged and also if it is the other half asking you don't want them to be picturing you doing stuff with these people!

    I think its because its more polite and also in history, people usually only had sex with the person they slept in bed with, wife or husband. Its in more recent years that society has become more relaxed about having multiple sexual partners without so much emphasis on marriage.

    I mostly say slept with unless it's with close friends then I don't need to be polite and can just say "so did you screw her then?"
