Have You Ever Had a One-Night Stand?


The infamous one-night stand takes the concept of casual sex to the extreme. There are serious risks to consider when having sex with someone you don't know too well, like STIs and regret, but there can be something exciting and enjoyable about no-strings-attached sex.

Since even a serial monogamist might have had a one-night stand once in her life, I'm curious — have you?

No. I never tried it. Maybe soon. I want to be ready before I get into a 1 night stand. I share it, if i'll have one soon.

One night stands are great for men, and never really good for women (generally). Women's sexuality is much more complex than men's: emotionally, psychologically, socially, spiritually, and, yes, physically. Most men are forgetting about you or the experience before we even pull out. Most women end up regretting it, according to all the female friends and (ex-es) and current GFs who have had one nights (minority of girls have done it, I know by the way, because most have respect for themselves), even if the sex was good. Also, a man (almost always) never wants relationship with slut(s) beyond the hour or two (or night) he's banging away. I know. So, my recommendation is, wait. Make him work for it. You'll both like it better, and, most importantly, you'll like yourself better (don't deny it LOL). Women: Don't carry the baggage for him getting his rocks off. It's not an even trade. So says me, a wise Dude who loves sluts for one nigt at a time, but no more. Also, longterm relationships are so much better. But, sluts, god love you (no one else does, clearly), thanks for the good times (...at least my good time LOL).;)

Oh yes, thats how I learnt all the tricks of the trade, my first one was with an older guy and after he had finished his business I kept on going and he asked me in a really calm voice "have you finished yet?" I couldn't stop laughing.

I had such a bad run-in with boyfriend that I started dating. Then once I started dating, the guys were getting slimier and slimier. I got to a point where I was losing hope and said, "To hell with it! I think I am hot. I have confidence I can F*&% any guy. I'll practice safe sex. Get it out of my system. And when the right person comes along, I will be ready to settle down." I literally had sex with 3 different guys every other week for two months.... That's OK. I know you had the thought in your head "SLUT" "WHORE". I don't regret it. I am STD- free and in a loving committed relationship! Sadly, it was probably the best thing I could do to be prepared to be with someone for the rest of my life.

No. I don't think I will. I believe in sex with love, but don't judge.

Unfortunately, yes. I do regret it, but it was with someone I had been 'dating' for a few weeks. We stopped seeing each other shortly after, but technically it was a one-night stand because it only happened once.

yes, once, and it was a complete thrill! Sometimes a guy friend is so hot/attractive that you wonder what they'd be like in bed and well, I went for it. It was with a guy friend that I totally lusted after, and one night we were out together, and it just happened. He was totally hot, looked amazing naked and we totally were on the same page regarding the sex. He wanted to pursue something further but I didn't want to risk our friendship (had already lost a bestfriend after I had started dating him and it didn't work out), so I left it at that one night, but oh what a night it was! It became a running tease between us about when the next time would happen and I thoroughly enjoyed teasing with him about it.

Yes I have. And Glowingmoon - I'm not really sure what you mean by "that type of person". I didn't know you had to be a certain type of person to have a one night stand. I did it in college with this guy whom I had a crush on from one of my classes. It was awful. SO bad actually that when I accidentally left my glasses in his room I went and got new ones instead of going to get them back!!! I don't regret it though because it makes for a funny story!

At least a one night stand is what it is. Not someone who says they love you and then breaks up with you later on.

Ok. I did it once on purpose just to see if I could get the guy. I'm attractive and been in serious relationships only but I got sick of it after my last serious boyfriend broke up with me for the bosses daughter. One night in particular I had a good ole time. That night I was afraid of being the good girl for the rest of my life. You know, never once getting wild and taking a chance? And, being a woman, and not so much a lady like I always was, and and always working and doing everything right. That was the night I let things go. Wow. What a night. He was from Europe and tried to make more of it, but an ex girlfriend came into the picture and nothing came of it. So it was a one nighter.

Yup. Can't even remember his name. I did have a class with him in college. I tried picked up men in bars -- managed to find the only two [different nights] that "didn't do that kind of thing". Fail. Then there was the six-month one night stand of a relationship, but that's a different story.

I've never done it because I'm afraid of not only STDs but also my safety, you know, not getting murdered. I've had close friends that have had pleasant experiences and others who swear it was the worst mistake they've ever made. If everything went ideally, I would definitely do it. Hey no strings is pretty much all I can handle at time anyways. Be careful though girls!

I've been tempted to but no. I'm too scared of STDs and all that good stuff

Yep and I enjoyed them all thoroughly! Sometimes, you just need to get laid. I had no interest in a boyfriend, all of my exs were douchebags and then that hottie walks by and everything falls into place. Everything was so uncomplicated! I highly recommend one night stands.

No I haven't, but I see nothing wrong with it. I've had flings in between relationships, but I joke that they always come back for more :-p I'm open to the experience, but the timing has never been right.

No never! I have had two friends go through, what I refer to, as the "30-year-old crisis" where they are still unmarried and without any prospective mates and this has led each of them to choose to partake in some risque behaviour including one-night stands. I have been completely shocked by some of the things each of these ladies have told me they've done. Luckily, one of them is now in her later 30's and seems to be leaving those wild days behind. The other is still very much into the lifestyle. I have been supportive of each yet still reminded them that I don't agree with their behaviour.
