One In Two Women Regret One Night Stands
British scientists who studied the emotional states of men and women after casual sex suggested in September that evolution has made women averse to one night stands, making them value quality over quantity (Metro, UK)
Professor Anne Campbell of Durham University said women would feel happier after casual sex if it was advantageous in evolutionary terms, after a study of 1,743 men and women who’d had one night stands showed that 80% of men felt great afterwards compared to 54% of women (the others reportedly felt ‘used’ and ‘regretful’).
The details emerged as politicians in Ecuador rejected a proposal by Maria Soledad Vela that women should have a legal right to sexual pleasure, with women being allowed to sue their husbands if they fail to perform.
"I think even if my proposal generated laughs and ridicule some parts of society are rethinking what really is a healthy sexual relationship and sexual pleasure,” Mrs Vela told the National Post, after her bill was discarded.
Back in the UK, the Daily Mail reported on another sex study which revealed that two out of three women in clubs agreed to dance with a man after he touched her arm briefly when making his request, reducing to one in three when the same man kept his hands to himself.
“When it comes to catching a woman's eye, little beats a winning smile and a touch on the arm,” the Mail suggested, “Research shows something as simple as a gentle brush of a woman's arm can boost a man's chances in love.”
