I love how the world still has to conduct scientific studies to prove that men are bigger assholes than women. Yeah, it’s been that way since the dawn of man and if we’ve made it this far, it’s probably never going to change. Women are crazy because men are assholes, it’s a tale as old as time.
So yeah, no shit women feel guiltier about one-night stands than men do. They also cry more and men fart more. This is day one stuff we’re talking here, yet someone, somewhere, actually bankrolled a study to figure this out.
Via Daily Mail:
To assess the attitudes towards one night stands, researchers questioned Norwegians – supposedly of a more sexually liberal background.
Some 263 students aged between 19 and 37 who had experienced one casual sexual encounter were surveyed.
It was far more common for women to regret saying yes (35 per cent), the researchers from Norwegian University of Science and Technology discovered.
The funniest part of the whole study is not that women feel guiltier, but that men actually feel better:
Only 30% (of women) reported feeling happy with their most recent one night stand. But more than half of men said the same.
Study author Professor Leif Edward Ottesen Kennair said: ‘Women regret that they agreed to a one-night stand more often than men. Men regret passing up the chance more than women.
‘Men enjoy casual sex considerably more, but this doesn’t explain the gender difference in regret, because gender is the most important influencing factor for both orgasm probability and sexual regret after casual sex.’
In other news, water is wet, sorority girls are annoying on Instagram, and men will laugh at fart jokes until the day they die. All par for the course.
