The Benefits of Booty Calls

Why You Should Answer Your Next Booty Call

The booty call, which Science Daily takes the time to define as "late-night calls to arrange a sexual rendezvous," are finally being recognized by science. A psychologist studied nearly 300 college students to determine booty calls are a hybrid of long-term relationships and one-night stands that can combine the best of both arrangements.

If you're looking to mix it up, look to the booty call. They're characterized by more sexual variety than long-term relationships and one-night stands (more time to experiment) and less emotion.

It's no surprise that booty-call sex is less emotional than relationship sex, but a one-night stand? Most likely. Peter Jonason, the researcher behind the study, admits it could be the fault of a small sample size, but he suspects it has more to do with the overzealous nature of one-night stands.

If being friends (or acquaintances) with benefits can be healthy, how do we keep emotions out? Setting up rules for engagement is a must, and Jonason suggests avoiding conversation and leaving immediately afterward to keep the nonromance alive.
