It's the conversation some of us dread, some of us lie through and some choose to never have at all. "So darling," someone starts. "How many people have you slept with exactly?"
But whether it doesn't bother you to talk about sexual partners or you can't think of anything worse, now we can revel in the embarrassment of strangers, as a new short film forces couples who have never discussed their 'magic number' to tell all on camera. In a video that has, at time of writing, had over 2 million views.
In the clip, posted by Elite Daily, awkward body language is in abundance as several couples uncomfortably broach the subject, with one woman exclaiming, "Well, I like to say nine!"
The results vary wildly, with one man estimating he's slept with over 150 people, and another admitting, "When I was in college, those numbers got stupid... Those numbers got outta hand."
One of the participants insists, "We don't have to know - we're happy! We don't have to know this!" while another possibly sums up how most of us feel on the subject, saying: "I don't really wanna think about what you did with your ex-girlfriends." Fair enough.
Have you had the chat? Do you think it's vital to be open or there are some things that just don't need to be said? Let us know in the comments below.
