    What I'm trying to understand specifically is why someone would not want to see a girl anymore after seeing her once. If you're going to have casual sex, surely it makes more sense to see each person a few times. You've hardly come to understand each other after one time. Can sex actually be good this way?

    Interested to hear guys' attitudes about one night stands generally. I guess (or hope) that they aren't all the same...

    Shagging with no strings attached? Fun? Pleasure? A story to tell?

    Pick any of the above.

    They want to put their **** in something that isn't their hand, an animal or made out of plastic?

    I'm guessing because they enjoy sex without the commitment.

    It's fun? I don't really see why you need to 'understand' someone for it to be pleasurable.

    I think most guys who resort to that don't have a chance of a ONS anyway.

    I have never had a classic ONS, but have several times ****ed or "been with" a girl only once and then avoided her afterwards. Essentially that's because she was rubbish in bed, annoying, not as pretty as I thought, our lips didn't fit together well when kissing, or I simply woke up and no longer found her appealing but had no idea why.

    Some of them were trophy ****s, where I only wanted to **** her because she was in some way "special" and I considered it a challenge or at least worth doing.

    I'm always open to the idea of seeing her again, though, in theory.

    I dont understand it either...you cant just accuse guys though, the girl plays an equal role in it. I think its pretty sad that our generation has such little morals or principles, sort of makes the concept of sex as something special to disappear and were left with a generation of people who do casual sex and cheat...brilliant.

    Most animals have one night stands don't they? In fact, humans are one of the only species to stick with a partner. So, OP, it isn't strange at all and definitely doesn't need justifying.

    Point is that there are no strings. Sometimes you don't want strings, you just want sex.

    Friends with benefits never works properly imo.

    I'm not interested in them, but I guess the logic is that:

    Sex after a night out > jerking off alone then going to bed.

    Wow well to answer this i would need to have sex first, but i assume men sometimes aren't ready for sex and a relationship cuz they cannot be ****ed with all the committment involved, so they have non committal sex with sluts.

    The point of a ONS is to exchange orgasms with someone who wants to exchange orgasms with you.

    personally, it's because I enjoy the feeling of sex but I do not want to put in the amount of effort you need to put into a relationship. I don't really enjoy going on dates either. I wouldn't really ever want to get to know the girl as that would just be leading them on and unfair on them. It's better if we both know it was for fun and nothing else
