The Eight Sexing Rule


I’ve got a male chum who has just come out of a long relationship. He was going out with this girl for about five years, they were living together and now it’s over.

He seems fine about the whole thing. They were one of those couples that snipe at each other all the time. He finally broke it off after yet another huge fight. It was coming for a long time.

Anyway. He is back to being single and is determined to stay out of a relationship for a while, which is why he has instigated The Eight Sexings Rule*.

The Eight Sexing Rule

My chum, let’s call him Geoff, is only going to have sex with any girl a maximum of eight times. He has decided this is the point when things start to get a bit like a relationship and so any more could be dangerous.

An evening of nude fun counts as one sexing and if something in the morning happens, well that doesn’t count as a new one either. So it’s probably more eight sex-dates rather than sex eight times. I know this because all his friends have been quizzing him on the rules after he made such a bold statement.

It is working out for him so far. He is dating a few ladies but keeping them at a distance and building up what he calls ‘a rota’. Or as I like to call it ‘a tragedy waiting to happen’.

What do you think? Is this a sensible plan?

*Yes I know it’s grammatically wrong but that’s what he calls it.

    I think that you’ll be hard pushed to find a women that doesn’t consider being shagged on seven different occasions *not* a relationship. If you say you’ll see them, what, two times a week, which is what you’d expect for the first few months anyway (or at least I would) and you’re shagging from the second week, you’re shagging them for a month. And that’s a long time if you just want to dick about. And there is no gurentee you’d shag on each of the those times.
    Basically, your mate sounds like a bit of a knob. No offence.

    It breaks my heart to hear that guys really think like that. Sex is meaningless and women are objects and yet we foolishly believe our guy is different. *sigh*

    agree with moononastick – what a horrid man he sounds. Alas, atypical of how a lot of men think and behave.

    Why are you friends with a twat like this?

    Geoff, is well, he isn’t the sharpest tack in the box to say the least but perhaps if you don’t know him it doesn’t come across as amusing.

    I in no-way endorse his actions though, he is a naughty boy.

    Disaster waiting to happen. Please suggest he blog about it!!! Also, I must say, I would rather prefer this to some insipid creeper who considers one date with no sex involved permission to begin stalking. Just sayin’.

      I’ll try and get an update from him about how it is going.

      Last time he spoke he was dating a Spanish lady who was very pretty but said nasty things to him.

        Good nasty or bad?

    Although I find this entertaining I do not agree with it, UNLESS he tells the ladies that he’s not looking for anything long term, but he can only treat them how they let him.

    He sounds like every guy I’ve gone out with in the past five years. I want to shoot him.

      Yahyah what she said.
      But get him involved. sounds like he’ll have some good stories.
      Bet him he can’t stay out of a relationship for say, 2 years. Call it the unwedordeadwager.

        yes! what she said. Although I read that as wedorundeadwager, which raises the stakes a bit.

        *thinks of puns for a bit*

        Something around till death do us part? Gah, fill in your own blanks

    I get that when someone is newly single, they want to have sex with new folks and not get serious. But why can’t he just say that to the girls rather than have an arbitrary cut-off date? Girls can feel attached after sex just once, or not attached after months of regular sex. He should just be honest with them about what he wants. He may be surprised and find a couple of bed buddies…
