8 Reasons to Have a One-Night Stand

One-night stands have kind of a bad rep. Sure, there’s a risk of embarrassing moments, walks of shame, and STDs, but there are still some really great things about them! They’re basically a naughty treat – have them in moderation, be safe, and they’re awesome. If the temptation of obligation free sex isn’t appealing enough, TheFrisky came up with some good reasons to have a one-night stand:

1. You’ll watch less TV. I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly Netflix-ing some program to which I promptly become addicted. And then I start dreading the day it runs out. (It is this destructive habit that’s caused me to watch all seasons of “30 Rock” no fewer than six times.) And so: Any night I don’t fall asleep whittling down the ever-lessening reserves of exciting TV is a night I’m grateful for. As I lack the self-restraint to do it when I’m home, I welcome any late-night plans. “30 Rock” is wonderful, of course. But it’s not more wonderful than sex that’s either a) legitimately good, or b) sort of bad and hilarious and, therefore, it’s own great form of entertainment.

2. You don’t have to make the bed in the morning. I’m mean, I’m sorry, but this makes it all worth it right here. I am a terrible maker of beds. It never looks even; I don’t know how to get it, like, fluffy you know? And! I’m not even one of those people who’s got a bed against a wall. Making a bed that’s up against wall is near-impossible. So to you ladies in that situation, I implore you: Please sleep out as often as you can.

3. The orgasm. Sometimes it’s just nice to have one from someone other than yourself, you know?

    2. Ellen - University of Manchester says:

      Not that there would be anything wrong with that, but just to clarify: This is, as the title would suggest, 8 reasons to have a one night stand. It is not anything to do with MY personal choices regarding sex. In fact, if you read the entire post you will see that the reasons are written by the Frisky. I think that if you like having one night stands, and are safe about having them, go ahead, good for you. But nowhere in this post have I said I actually have one night stands. But feel free to keep making assumptions and calling me a slut, because it's actually pretty entertaining.

  7. You should have one night stands – who cares what your future husband thinks! He's not there right now. The reasons in the article are terrible though. How about…

    1. Because it's 2012 and women can choose to have sex with a stranger if they like.

    2. It's a thrill, as long as you're safe.

    3. You get to learn new things – learn what you don't like in bed and pick up a few new skills as well.
