Should you aim to count the number of sins committed while Confessing?

Now I don’t understand a few things. Say for argument that there is this sensual person who committed hundreds of these type of sins in the past and can’t remember the hundreds if not thousands, i.e the number of times. Now for argument he went to priests of the new world order for confession and all these confessions are invalid. So he finds a valid priest that lives in some sort of monastery somewhere, and confesses to him all the sins he ever confessed to the new world order priests in the past but can’t remember the number of times he committed these sensual sins of the flesh…what is the rule about that?

 

MHFM: In that case, a person would say: “I ask forgiveness for having committed [specify the sin] possibly thousands of times.”  One must do his best to approximate.
