This compared to the men, of whom 22 per cent said they have lied about how many lovers they have had. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline.
The study found that men were willing to admit that they sometimes engaged in behaviors seen by college students as more appropriate for women, such as writing poetry. But it seems young women today still feel there is a stigma attached to having multiple sexual conquests - so they lie about their 'sex number'.According to a study carried out by student publication, The Tab, a quarter of women lie about the number of people they have slept with.


The publication quizzed more than 12,700 students at 36 universities across the country in their sex survey.They found that students at Oxford Brookes university were the most promiscuous with the average student admitting to having sex with 14 people. Thirteen per cent admitted they had caught a Sexually Transmitted Infection, followed by 12 per cent at Aberdeen University and 10 per cent at Northumbria.
They found that lying about their past lovers was the most common fib women told when starting a new relationship. Women, on the other hand, wanted to be seen as having less sexual experience than they actually had, to match what is expected of women.


More than half - 52 per cent - of the women polled said they gave a lower number than the truth as they thought it made them look better to their new man.
