WEINHHEIM - Men generally remember how many women they have slept with but seldom recall all their names, the German magazine Psychology Today reports.

Men on average recall "about 12" sexual partners but have a tendency toward exaggerating their success with the opposite sex, the magazine said in citing a study by the University of Alberta in Canada.

In contrast women knew exactly the history of their sexual life and reported on average six different partners.

The magazine concluded that men neither had a more active sex life nor did they deliberately lie.

Men, it said, merely estimate the number of their sexual partners because they do not keep a "mental list".
