Risks of One Night Stands

Apart from the risks of contracting STDs, the other risks associated with having a one-night stands are mostly for women. This is because their psychology is different from men. This is evident by the studies on brain chemicals released in the brain during sex. They have shown that women have more to lose by having a one-night stand.

Risks of One Night Stand

During sex a hormone called oxytocin is released in women. It makes them feel like nurturing their young ones that is supposed to come after sex. On the other hand, men get a great shot of testosterone which actually suppresses the oxytocin. It actually urges them to look for another partner.

The male psyche is such that it is makes them look for as many mates as possible, for having many offsprings. One can see how the male psyche is different from the female. After sex, a woman’s system tells her to stay in bed and cuddle with hopes of seeing the same mate tomorrow, who will provide for her. This is why women feel depressed when they walk out after their hook up. They should grow wise to their psyche and have pity on themselves by refraining from having a one-night stand. Whatever notions young or old women have of feminism or free sex, they should know their evolution and keep away from casual approach towards one night stands that are full of risks.

Those women who believe they must have their “freedom” similar to men for having one-night stands should know that they will surely feel bad afterwards. This feeling which is very close to guilt makes them want to forget it. The rising rates of alcoholism in women can be attributed with conviction to the casual sex they are indulging in these days. They actually feel that they need to be strong to allow themselves to do something that they do not want and their biology reacts against!

It is such a travesty of these times that such has become the fate of the women that they are actually convincing themselves to do something which they naturally should not. All this just because of the false sense of feeling powerful. One-night stands can only give cheap thrills. Even men, though their biology allows it, are only going to lose out in terms of gaining the trust of their partner. Apart from the psycho-biological and socio-emotional factors, there is risk of contracting infections such as AIDS, Gonorrhoea, Herpes, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Genital Warts and others. There are far too many risks of one night stand to indulge in them casually!
