Anna Faris is set to topline, What’s Your Number?, based on the Karyn Bosnak novel, Twenty Times a Lady. The story follows a woman who has an established quota of 20 fucks per lifetime, realizing when she wakes up with her prickish boss that she’s hit her limit. After refusing to break her limit, she contends with being stuck with the guy. The film, directed by Mark Mylod (“Entourage,” “The United States of Tara”) also explores the idea of sexual quotas and if such numbers matter.
Well do they? It seems like a fairly amusing premise, but not one particularly grounded in reality. Do women (or even men) actually have personal quotas? Does anyone give a shit, anymore, how many people they sleep with, and does anyone care how many partners your significant other has had? 37 dicks. That I can understand. But 20 lays? Bah. Whatever. I suppose there was a time when that mattered — when I felt uncomfortable about dating someone who had more ex-partners than I, but then I started converting lesbians and that problem fixed itself. Yay! (I kid. I kid.)
