Women generally have a higher body count than man. It is also pretty normal to see a man who is in his 30s who is a virgin or had only 1-2 partners. On the other hand, for women, unless they are extremely, extremely picky or religious... it is not uncommon for women to have 5+ partners by the time they are 30.0

If we get straight down to it then the answer is no. Nobody is required to tell their SO how many people they've been with. As long as you tell them if you're HIV positive or not or if you have any kind of STD's then the number shouldn't even matter. I don't understand why people want numbers. Is the answer "I have been with other men/women before our relationship" not enough?
I understand telling your SO if you've been with someone else. What I don't understand is why numbers has to be involved? Asking for how many is like asking for a fight lol. If you're STD free and the other person knows you've been with someone else before, then why should numbers matter?
And if you think this is a matter of "respect" and "trust" and that the other person deserves the right to know, then you need to stop being so self entitled and respect if the other person doesn't want to talk about it. Numbers doesn't matter!1
