It's Official, One Night Stands Are Good For You



There is no longer a need to suffer a mini crisis and  down a few stiff drinks every time you have a one night stand because new research has revealed it might actually be good for you.


The study from New York University, published earlier this month, dispels the popular misconception that casual sex leaves participants with low self-esteem and self-worth following a sexual encounter with someone who isn’t a boyfriend or girlfriend.

Students at the U.S university kept a diary over a 12 week period, writing down how they felt after having casual sex – and the results turned out to be very surprising.

The researchers said: ‘When it came to those who were sociosexually unrestricted, having casual sex was associated with higher self-esteem and life satisfaction and lower depression and anxiety.’
