Women aren't able to process casual sex?

Posted By on Fri, Dec 5, 2008 at 8:49 AM

A report out of London say women lack the skills to hit it and quit it.

According to Professor Anne Campbell from Durham University in the UK, the negative feelings reported by women after one-night stands suggest that they are not well adapted to fleeting sexual encounters.

Really? I felt fine this morning when I tossed Nameless out of my bed this morning around 3 a.m.

The report goes on to say:

Men are more likely to reproduce and therefore to benefit from numerous short-term partners. For women, however, quality seems to be more important than quantity. Also for women, finding partners of high genetic quality is a stronger motivator than sheer number, and it is commonly believed that women are more willing to have casual sex when there is a chance of forming a long-term relationship.

But what about women who don’t want to have children and just want to get off? Every woman doesn’t believe that she’s fucking the man of her dreams.

Sure, there is that double standard thing in society. He’s the man if he has Wilt Chamberlin type numbers in the sex department and she’s a slut if she’s been with more than five men in her lifetime.

More from the report:

Professor Campbell looked at whether women have adapted to casual sex by examining their feelings following a one-night stand. If women have adapted, then although they may take part in casual sex less often than men because of their stricter criteria when selecting partners, they should rate the experience positively. To test the theory, a total of 1743 men and women who had experienced a one-night stand were asked to rate both their positive and negative feelings the following morning, in an internet survey.

Overall women’s feelings were more negative than men’s. Eighty per cent of men had overall positive feelings about the experience compared to 54 per cent of women. Men were more likely than women to secretly want their friends to hear about it and to feel successful because the partner was desirable to others. Men also reported greater sexual satisfaction and contentment following the event, as well as a greater sense of well-being and confidence about themselves.

The predominant negative feeling reported by women was regret at having been “used”. Women were also more likely to feel that they had let themselves down and were worried about the potential damage to their reputation if other people found out. Women found the experience less sexually satisfying and, contrary to popular belief, they did not seem to view taking part in casual sex as a prelude to long-term relationships.

How can you feel used if you went into a night of safe sex willingly? Women have needs just like men and sometimes a vibrator doesn’t give you the thrill that you need.

And by the way, I was kidding about Nameless.
