There’s no way around it: women have needs. Sometimes we can skate by using other measures but other times we just need to get laid. When those moments come up and are more immediate than trying to find a nice person on your dating app of choice, have multiple dates and experience emotional intimacy, you may just need a one-night stand.
The problem is that many of us have an underlying negative idea of one night stands that can leave us feeling like “whores” or “trashy” and lead us to regret our actions when we really shouldn’t. When you just need to get it out, we have some tips to help you overcome any regret that night sneak up on you.
This can go without saying but we’re going to say it anyway: use protection. Use multiple forms of protection. (ex. If you’re on birth control, still use a condom.) Besides the risk of becoming pregnant with a person you don’t feel much towards, there are diseases down there that you will not want to deal with in the future.
Before you go into the situation, decide how far you are OK with things going. You can always change your mind, but this can also prevent you from letting things go too far when you get in the heat of the moment. This lessens the chance of regretting what you did when you wake up the next morning.
This is your time and your decision, so don’t waste it being stuck in your head. Allow yourself to experience the pleasure without worrying about what the next day will bring.
You have the right to set some ground rules. Maybe you want dinner before, maybe you want this to happen at your place and maybe you want them to leave right away. Make sure that you are comfortable with the situation you are going into.
You are taking ownership of your sexuality, and girl, you are getting it on. Let yourself embrace the excitement and happiness that this brings you. You earned it!
