New Delhi: In 11 states and the entire country, women have more sex partners on average than men, but the NFHS found that 4 percent of men had sex with someone they did not live with or have a spouse, which is substantially greater than the 0.5 percent for women.

In several states and union territories, women had more sex partners on average than males, according to the national family health survey, which included 1.1 million women and 1 million men.
You might be shocked to learn that Rajasthan has the most women, with an average of 3.1 sex partners for women and 1.8 for men. These states and union territories are Rajasthan, Haryana, Chandigarh, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Puducherry, and Tamil Nadu.

However, 4% of men reported engaging in sexual activity in the 12 months before the poll with someone who was not their spouse or live-in partner. Women made up 0.5% of the population. In the 2019–21 survey period for the National Family Health Survey–5, 707 districts in 28 states and 8 UTs were surveyed. The national report also includes data by socioeconomic status and other background factors, which is useful for developing policies and successfully implementing programs.

A somewhat higher percentage of rural women than urban women, and women who are never married, divorced, widowed, or separated women, reported having sex with two or more partners over the previous 12 months. The survey was primarily conducted to assess the prevalence of higher-risk sex and condom use during such sex, as low condom use could generally increase HIV/AIDS risk in individuals.
