The media has a love-hate relationship with one night stands; sometimes they’re romanticised and other times they’re condemned. Despite what we read and see on T.V, there is nothing wrong with having a one night stand. As long as you’re safe, and use your common sense, sex can be healthy and fun. If you take away the puritanical reasons and the slutty stereotype that has been linked to no strings attached sex, there is no solid reason why you shouldn’t have a one night stand. Unless you don’t want to of course, and casual sex is not for everybody.
If you are thinking about having a one night stand; we have come up with 10 reasons to do it;
1) One Night Stands are an Adventure
Sex Therapist Dr Ava Cadell believes that for those who are single, one night stands can inject some excitement in to our lives; “”A one night stand with no-strings-attached can be a great way to add excitement and adventure to your single life. As long as you are honest with the person, understand the risks, and follow the rules of casual sex.”
A one night stand is an opportunity for both of you to have your sexual needs met, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to try new sexual activities you have been fantasising about. Your one night stand won’t know what you like, so open up and suggest a few new things. Who knows what you might discover!
2) No Expectations, so no Disappointments
When we have a one night stand, there are zero expectations. This works in two ways – first of all, you have no expectations of what the sex will be like. If it’s great, score! If it’s not, it’s a one off, so you won’t have to dread a repeat the following night.
Secondly, you have both agreed at the onset that this was a one night fling, so allow yourself to enjoy the moment. If they sneak out before the crack of dawn, it’s no big deal. You’ve both had your fun and at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.
3) It’s just about the Fun
Erica Jong once wrote that sex is; “…absolutely pure. It is free of ulterior motives. There is no power game. The man is not ‘taking’ and the woman is not ‘giving.’ No one is trying to prove anything or get anything.”
Why do you have sex? We are hoping it’s because it’s fun and it makes you feel amazing. If you are looking for fun and lots of pleasure, then there’s no reason not to have sex with someone you have just met.
4) They get the Job done without Wasting your Time
Some of us enjoy being single or are too busy to date, but still have sexual needs to be fulfilled. One night stands are a great way to have your fun without needing to go on numerous dates with people who may not be right for you. Save time and find a partner who is looking for the same thing.
5) Exercise is Great!
It’s a fact; sex is a fantastic exercise. It also beats going to the gym three times a week. It uses numerous muscles and leaves your mind and body feeling just as good as it would after a session of yoga!
6) Life Shouldn’t always be Planned
Our lives have become increasingly busy and structured. We all need a break from the routine of day-to-day life and a one night stand is a great way to shake things up a little. The name no strings attached implies that you just go with the flow and enjoy the moment.
7) Get to know Yourself
Sex is a great way to figure out what you enjoy. This ties in with point one, the experience you gain from having a one night stands allows you to explore what you do and do not like in the bedroom. This is also a great way for those who are shy in the bedroom to experiment, you can’t be judged by a person you’ll never see again. Embrace the unexpected and allow yourself to try something new during your one night stand.
8) One Night Stands are (usually) Less Emotionally Draining
There is no denying that sex can be emotional. However, no strings attached sex is a good way for those who are looking to stay away from the emotional side to experience a purely sexual encounter — without any expectation of it turning into something more serious.
9) Unleash your Wild Side
Most of us hope to eventually meet the one and settle down. However, before you meet this person, you’ll want to have some crazy sexual experiences and be wild and unpredictable. Although the sex in a long term relationship is great, the spontaneous passion of a one night stand is incredible and should not be missed out on.
10) It can Help you Feel Great Again
Sex makes us feel great, and as long as you are sure this is what you want to do, go for it. You will quickly forget about those problems you have been having at work or the mess your flatmates have left in the kitchen.
If you stay safe and focus on the thrill and pleasures of that moment, a one night stand will be a very sexy and enjoyable experience. If this hasn’t convinced you, why not ask the escorts in Aberdeen? We are sure they’ll be able to give you many more reasons to have a one night stand.
