Is it true that men prefer one night stands? Find out here.

 "…women and men were equally likely to accept offers of casual sex from close friends whom they perceived to have high sexual capabilities (i.e., whom they thought would "be a great lover" and would provide them with "a positive sexual experience"). …Across multiple studies, perceived sexual capabilities of sexual proposers most strongly predicted acceptance of casual-sex offers among both women and men. Moreover, perceived proposer sexual capabilities partially mediated the gender differences in casual sex".

Women who didn't fear slutbashing, and were unconcerned about the sexual prowess of the guy, were just as interested in casual sex as men. Not that we can eliminate slutbashing in the real world, we're purely hypothetical here. That's a decision for the individual. Personally, I can think of many reasons why it's a bad idea. Nonetheless, there's a take home message here for guys. According to this research, if you wanna get lucky, you better learn your way around the sack and acquire some good skills.

Who cares? Women care, The joke is on you!
