Country crooner Taylor Swift has a history of dating high-profile celebrities including Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Zac Efron, Conor Kennedy and her latest beau, One Direction star Harry Styles.

American comedian Chelsea Handler has came up with an explaination as to why the 23-year-old singer is associated with so many men.

"My theory about Taylor Swift is that she's a virgin, that everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she's like, "I'm not gonna do it,"" she joked on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live show.

"And they're like, "Oh, well, forget it. Then I don't want to date you. Every guy thinks they're going to de-virginise her, and they're not. She's never going to get de-virginised, ever, ever, ever, ever.'

Earlier this week, the Love Story singer had hit back at Golden Globes award hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey for commenting on her love life at the event.

"You know, [journalist] Katie Couric is one of my favorite people," Swift was quoted as saying in Vanity Fair. "Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, 'there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'"

Commenting on Swift's reposte, Handler said the singer had made "a bold statement."

"I like that she's being that vociferous about something that she thinks they were out to get her. They were clearly making a joke just about her demeanor, which is embarrassing. I mean, she's just dated so many men," Handler said.

Siwft is one of the few celebrities who are vocal about abstinence.

"I read a very creative rumor this morning saying I'm pregnant, which is the most impossible thing on the planet. Take my word for it," she said in 2008.
