The average number of people women sleep with during their lifetime has more than doubled from the previous average of seven, within the last 20 years.
That's according to one of the most detailed studies of people's sexual habits in Britain and the United States.
The third National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal) asked several thousand participants about their sexual habits. One finding suggested that people are having sex less frequently.
Authors of the study, also show a rise in women having sexual relations with other women. Findings say modern life may be having an impact on these sexual habits.
The study, which took place on several college campus' throughout Briton (and online for the United States) asked students whether they agreed with the findings and women's current attitudes to sex.
Of the numerous opinions listed, the general thought was that women agreed that having multiple sexual encounters and partners, is no longer a man's prerogative.
Most asked had several opinions like these: "I think it's a lot more socially acceptable now for women to have more partners before marriage. In college, most girls have an average of five to 10 sexual partners."
"In terms of women kissing other women or sleeping with them it's just one of those normal things now."
"Younger people from the age of 13 are already talking about sex like it's nothing nowadays. If I see two women kissing I often think they're just doing it for fun, not that they are in a serious relationship."
And, "People in school are having sex and if it was ten years ago, they'd probably get judged. But now it seems more normal."
Most questioned didn't find the research surprising. One student stated that, "It's [society's attitude to sex] that's definitely changed over the generations. I don't think it's good or bad thing; people can do what they want."
"I also know lots of friends who've had sexual experiences with other women...things like kissing in a club. They aren't lesbians, it's probably just drunken experimenting."

Alcohol in South Korea
All bars and local night establishments are filled to the brim with things you have seen in all other places like Jack Daniels and Jagermeister.
However you may spy a little green bottle with Korean writing on it and you may ask what is that? It's called Soju, my friends or 소주 for the Hangil inclined (Korean Language).
Soju is a spirit primarily made from rice, barley, potatoes or tapioca and has an average alcohol content of 20% ABV however there are some brands of Andong Soju that are upward of 45% ABV.
None the less, they will both get the job done. Soju has a taste very similar to vodka but it is slightly sweeter and easier to consume by itself.
Now we get to the matter of cost and availability; however rest assured the answer will be qiute positive. Soju is available all over South Korea from the local convenience store for 1,000 Won = roughly $1 or in a restaurant for 3,000 Won =$3. So these adult treats certainly won't set you back any considerable amount.
It alco mixes quite well with beer, cider, and energy drinks. Soju has been around since the 13th century and shows no signs of going anywhere anytime soon. So when you get the chance come on down to the Republic of South Korea and have a shot of deliciousness.
