15 of the Most Laid People in History
After a certain point, numbers lose all meaning. A billion is a hell of a lot, a quadrillion is a hell of a lot. The difference between how much of a hell of a lot each is, though, is hard for most people to wrap their heads around — a quadrillion minus a billion is pretty much still a quadrillion. That’s mad. But from the scale we can comprehend them, they’re basically the same.
Likewise, is there really a difference between someone who has had sex with 4,000 people and someone who has had sex with 5,000? Is the one who’s had sex with 5,000 laughing at the one who’s had sex with 4,000, calling them frigid? Doubt it. Both numbers are incredibly high; both people are presumably fairly emotionally troubled.
Giacomo Girolamo Casanova, whose name lives on as a word for a great and prolific lover, had 122 sexual partners. Genghis Khan had six wives and 500 concubines — a significant amount of the modern world’s population is directly descended from him. However, Dustin Diamond, who played Screech on Saved By the Bell, claimed to have had sex with 2,000 women. Makes you think, probably.
Hugh Hefner: If the Grotto’s A-Rockin’...
Hugh Hefner claimed to have slept with 1,000 to 2,000 women, insisting he was always faithful when married but made up for it when not. Imagine how many he’d have slept with if he wasn’t such a gross old bastard!

Simon Cowell: High Waistline, High Sex Drive
Simon Cowell claims to have had sex with 2,000 women before settling down. Simon Cowell claims a lot of things though — America’s Got Talent being good TV, for one.
Screech: Zoinks, What a Lot of Sexual Intercourse!
In his deeply strange autobiography Behind the Bell, the late Dustin “Screech” Diamond claimed to have had sex with 2,000 women, including many extras on Saved By the Bell and a network exec when Diamond was just 15.
Julio Iglesias: 3,000 Women Can’t Be Wrong
Julio Iglesias claimed to have slept with 3,000 women. His song “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before” should probably have a few more verses.
Mick Jagger: (He Can Get A Lot Of) Satisfaction
Mick Jagger has had an estimated 4,000 sexual partners in his time, including a short fling with David Bowie. He once went to a therapist to deal with his sex addiction… and had sex with her.
Gene Simmons: Detroit Fuck City
Gene Simmons of KISS insists he’s had sex with around 5,000 women. His tactic, besides being in KISS, was to wait “like a vulture on the sidelines” until all the other men around him got drunk.
Charlie Sheen: Two and a Half Women, Times Two Thousand
One of many things Charlie Sheen is a huge fan of? Sex with sex workers. Back in 2000, he claimed to have slept with 5,000. The erratic actor once said, “I don’t pay prostitutes for sex, I pay them to leave.”
Sir Tom Jones: It’s Not Unusual… to Cheat on Your Wife Every Working Day of the Year
Carlton Banks’ hero slept with 250 women annually at the height of his fame. That’s around 5,000. However, he claims to have only ever loved one: his wife, Linda. He probably thought that sounded sweeter than it does.
Adam West: Holy Sexual Revolution, Batman!
At the height of his Batman fame, Adam West slept with eight women a day. Over two years that’s 5,840 women. He and Frank Gorshin (who played the Riddler) got thrown out of an orgy for being “too funny.”
Ric Flair: Woooooooooooo-ing the Ladies
Ric “Nature Boy” Flair says he spent the 1970s sleeping with 10,000 women. He later said, “I feel bad now that I said some of (that). Ten thousand women. I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids.”
Warren Beatty: 12,775 women? No, It Can’t Have Been More Than 10,000
Warren Beatty lost his virginity relatively late, at 20, but one biographer claimed he proceeded to have sex with a new woman every day for 35 years. Beatty insists that isn’t true, that he had days off and occasional repeats.
Wilt Chamberlain: Promiscuous and Organized
In his 1991 autobiography, Wilt Chamberlain famously claimed to have slept with 20,000 women, a figure he reached with the aid of a Day-Timer personal planner and a calculator. Sexy!
Fidel Castro: Close and 35,000 cigars
A close friend of Fidel Castro claims the Cuban leader had sex with 35,000 women during his lifetime, the equivalent of two a day for 50 years. It’s amazing he had found the time to lead a revolution really.
