Casual Sex

6 Weird Facts

By Alyssa HornPublished 6 years ago 3 min read

There comes a point in everyones' lives when they decide that they would like to have someone to constantly wake up with as well as cuddle with instead of asking “do you need a cab?”

One-night stands can have a number of effects on a person. They can be mind-blowing or guilt-inducing, and if we are females, then you know we all have that friend who questions our sanity…saying that we could’ve died or that the guy could’ve been a serial killer stalker person.

Personally, I have had my fair share of one-night stands. Of course always when I was single and usually after a bad breakup or during a difficult time in my life, because one way I tend to cope is through sexual expression. Not saying that is healthy and that everyone should do it, but it works because you don’t have to get personal. There was an older guy that I met casually a few times and I just sent him on his way. The most recent is a twenty-year-old college student, which I don’t mind because I am only twenty-eight, and he challenges me to express myself in ways that I haven’t done in so long…which is one of the reasons that I keep letting him come around. Although I am aware that the minute he begins getting too close, I will cut him loose.

If you are into some weird facts about casual sex, then there are plenty out there. For example, 70% of Americans have had casual sex. I like to believe that it is in our DNA as humans—our animalistic instinct, if you will. Casual sex is out there to be had as well as enjoyed, just as sex was meant to be had. Of course, I don’t believe in cheating, but if you are single, then do it up, as long as you take the necessary precautions regarding contraception.

However, here are some of the six stranger facts that you should know:

1.There is a hook-up gene.

It is believed that some people are born with a predestined interest in one-night stands. Much like alcoholism would run in someone’s family, the need to explore sexuality would also run in family.

2. Women care more about Hotness than Men.

The level of perceived attractiveness plays a key role in which person a women will choose to go home with. Men will, however, most likely want to hook up regardless of a women’s rating on a hotness scale.

3. Women often feel used after a one-night stand.

Personally, I don’t mind the feeling as long as I get what I want, so to speak. But some women report feeling cheap as well as used. But men consider hooking up a good way to blow off steam.

4. Women might jump in bed because of evolution.

They may feel awful afterwards, they might just be responding to internal, evolutionary urges.

5. Hips don’t lie.

Wide hips may be an indicator of predilection towards one night stands.

6. Depression and casual sex are linked.

Teens with thoughts of suicide are more likely to engage in casual sex as an adult. Weird but true.

So have sex and enjoy because, in the end, you live once. I would recommend you have the craziest and most wild sex that you can before you get settled down, because in the end, all you will have left are the memories of your childhood.
