Do you know a woman who follows some self-imposed rule about when she'll have sex with a new partner? Maybe it's three dates, or six weeks - or six months. Maybe she waits until they say the "L" word, or maybe she hasn't even done it yet because she's waiting for marriage (shout out to all the clueless moms reading this post...).
In any case, I say it's time to let it ALL hang out.
Women, really. Let's be honest here - it's just us girls.
How long do you wait to have sex with a new partner? Is there really a standard answer to this question? And do women EVER tell the truth about it?

It's an ongoing conundrum for most single women these days. If you wait to have sex for too long, will your partner really wait around for you? Really, what is sex? Is romance a part of dating anymore?
According to the New York Times, a lot of single ladies now employ a five-date rule.
"Single girls now wait until fifth rendezvous before having sex with a new partner," the Times reports.
- During first four dates women mentally tick off of a ten-point checklist
- Includes whether man is trustworthy and whether they 'click'
- Women expect 12 text conversations, five calls and two gifts before sex
- Body odor, texting at the table and being rude to waiters are biggest dating turn-offs
Depends on who is answering the question, if you ask me. Sex is what you think it is 0 nothing more, and nothing less. Whether y0u give it up on the first date or third date or you never give it up at all? That's totally up to you. You're the one who has to live with your choices. And it's no one else's business.
What are we waiting for, anyways? Aren't we all grown? Let's do what grown women do.
So, you've heard my two cents - can I get yours?
