Easy, slut and cheap are all words that we hear to describe women who’ve had one night stands or sex on the first date.

One Night Stands: Why are They Seen as Wrong?

One Night Stands: Why are They Seen as Wrong?

The wholesome Mollie King has said that it’s something she has never done but does she place in the majority or the minority?

From what I’ve heard, it’s something most women will do at some point in their lives but why are we judged so harshly for it and should it be something we should feel ashamed about doing?

Generally, no, we shouldn’t feel bad about it. Why should we? We’re allowed to have a good time once in a while.

If we get chatting to a hot guy and we feel some kind of chemistry then why not let yourself go a little?

Of course, if it’s something you’re making a habit of then it can be a different story.

No women wants a reputation, whether it’s justified or not, and if you’re going home with a new man every other night then sadly you’re going to get a label.

Incredibly, it’s the women that judge more harshly than the men and it’s this judgement that suddenly makes it wrong for a woman to have sex with a man she barely knows.

If we reverse the roles here and look at when men have one night stands, it’s not a big deal at all.

His fellow men actually congratulate him for it, like he’s some kind of God.

So it would seem that it isn’t the opinion of the opposite sex that matters when it comes to one night stands, is the opinion of the same sex that counts.

If we women would just give each other a break then maybe we wouldn’t be judged so harshly for having sex with someone we feel an attraction to – something that’s entirely natural when you think about it.

So next time you’re chatting to that guy at the bar and you’re getting along really well, when he asks you to get out of there, go for it. After all, like our music writer Cameron says, “Sometimes you just need a good sex session.”
