This is not a direct answer to your question, but I thought it might be useful to show, looking across a wide range (117) of samples, which variables relating to sexual experience are widely available. An X indicates that a variable is included in the sample (country and year) listed directly above. Here are the variable from IPUMS-DHS covering recent sexual activity: recent

and here's the availability of variables on recent sexual partners: partner

I hope this is helpful--or at least reassures you that you are not overlooking some great variable that better serves your purpose.
