Sexes split over one night stands

Many women are left unhappy in the aftermath of casual sexual encounters, a survey has revealed.

Just under half of women who answered the internet poll, published in the journal "Human Nature", said they felt it had been a bad idea.

Four out of five men, in contrast, said they were happy with a brief fling.

The academic leading the research said it showed that there was no evolutionary advantage for women in one night stands.

I never saw anything wrong with a one night stand as long as you use protection and don't use your real name.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Of course this also means that OVER HALF thought it was an a) OK, b) Good, c) Great, d) OH GOD!!! idea. Maybe the "under half" just didn't have the right guy/girl.

It was the 80"s who didn't? Besides unless you were a virgin when you got married and never cheated and are still married to that person 9 out of ten You had one. But, it may not have been by choice. No call the next day. So why not go into it with eyes wide open?

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Willing and Able (aka competent) don't necessarily go hand in hand.


For the record, I don't think I've had more than a couple one night stands that were worth a damn. Most I'd prefer to forget...or have already
