Sex Partner Puzzle

The results of a sex survey conducted had results that claimed the average number of sex partners was 6 for men and 2 for women.

Let’s make these simplifying assumptions (all of which are reasonable):

• there are N women and N men;

• all of the sexual activity took place within this group of 2N people;

• all sexual activity was heterosexual;

• the men aren’t bragging, and the women aren’t being coy (well, maybe this assumption is a bit unreasonable).

Is it possible that the men's average could be 6 and the women's 2? If you believe it is possible, devise an example.
If you believe it isn’t possible, prove that it is not possible.
