One Night Stands

Stop the presses! Men and women view sex differently. In the realm of things that are super obvious, that fact is right up there with "Al Gore won the 2000 election" and "O.J. did it." But just in case you needed a little more proof, I have for you yet another sex study.

This particular study was done by the dating auction website WhatsYourPrice.com. Yup, I said "dating auction" website. I wasn't sure how it worked either, but I checked it out and, basically, rich dudes (called "generous members") offer women (called "attractive users") bids on how much they will pay for a first date and the women can accept, reject or counter their offer.

And, no, this isn't a joke. The men aren't bidding with "site credits" or anything like that. This is a real financial transaction. In fact the site even says in their list of First Date Etiquette: "Our advice: Pay 50% of the date at the start of the date, and 50% at the end."

I must admit that I am totally fascinated by this site and could probably write this whole post about it. But we need to get back to the sex study/survey they conducted. However, before we do, check out these two videos. The first is from the What's Your Price site and the second is a really funny video for a different kind of dating site.

So, what did they discover in their study of 25,000 of their 450,000 members?

Well, their study showed that whereas 77% of women said they considered sex appropriate after the fifth date, 69% of men said they saw it as appropriate after the second date. Now maybe it's just me, but if I'm going to bid and pay a chick for a first date I am thinking that sex is appropriate sometime between when I pick her up and before we order our appetizers!

As far as one-night stands go, 25% of women said they had a one-night stand because they were drunk and 43% of men said they had a one-night stand because the woman was drunk. They actually said it was because they were drunk, but I think we all know the truth, don't we?

The biggest differences between the sexes of reasons for one-night stands were: for the sake of having sex (35% men, 7% women), in order to gain false intimacy (9% men, 38% women) and as a rebound after a breakup (13% men, 30% women).

Strangely enough, considering who was surveyed, none of the men said they had a one-night stand because they had paid a chunk of change to the woman after winning an online auction to get a first date with her. And, surprisingly, none of the women gave as a reason for having a one-night stand the fact that some rich man had paid her to go on a date with him. If this doesn't make you believe in true love again then I don't know what will!

Going back to the "drunk" excuse, here are some sites where alcohol could be playing a factor in what takes place: Nebraska Coeds, Party Hardcore and WD Girls.
