When someone asks for your number, how do you answer them? Most people would recite their phone number, or maybe make up a fake one if it’s that weird guy at the bar who just can’t take a hint. But there’s another number that many keep secret, discussed only among close friends or partners, one that John Mayer is bringing to light; the number of people he’s had sex with.
On his Instagram Live show Current Mood, Mayer told comedian and writer Cazzie David that the number of people he’s slept with is six, getting more specific after he originally answered “less than 500 people” on a previous show. He cleared up his “sub-500” statement on Sunday night, saying “I feel like people might like you more if you would just go along with what the truth is… I also just wanna say that I thought about it over the week and I actually went back over my entire dating history and… my number is six. So I just wanted you to know that. That my number is six.”
Mayer’s dating history includes high profile relationships with celebs Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jessica Simpson, among others.
