New Delhi . According to recent data from the National Family Health Survey in India, women have more sexual partners than men in several states and union territories. The survey was conducted between 2019 and 2021 and included 1,01,000 women and 1,00,000 men across 707 districts in 28 states and union territories.

The data shows that women have a higher average number of sexual partners than men in states such as Rajasthan, Haryana, Chandigarh, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Puducherry, and Tamil Nadu. In fact, Rajasthan tops the list with women having an average of 3.1 partners, while men are limited to 1.8.

However, the survey also found that the percentage of men having sexual relationships outside of their marriage or without ever having been in a relationship with their partner is higher than women. Approximately 4% of men reported having such relationships, while only 0.5% of women reported the same.

The survey provides valuable insights into the sexual behavior of men and women in India, highlighting the differences in the number of sexual partners between genders. While the data may be surprising to some, it underscores the importance of promoting safe and responsible sexual behavior for both men and women.
