The one night stand is that elusive treasure that all men crave. They’re wild, exciting, and above all, commitment-free. Thing is, like any treasure hunt, you need to come prepared if you want to succeed, or even if you want to survive to see another expedition. Here are some essential supplies for any enterprising adventurer.
To be honest, this should be so freaking obvious that we don’t even need to write it down. But somehow, dudes still forget them, dudes still expect that ladies will have them stockpiled at their place or stuffed into their purses, and dudes still think that they can bareback and be magically immune to any STDs or accidental pregnancies that can and will result.
Bring condoms. Keep a supply at your place, and slip one or two into your wallet when you go out with the intent to get some. Ladies might have them in their purses, and they might have a supply at home, but a lot of women just expect guys to have a stockpile. (And considering what we guys spend most of our time thinking about, can you blame them for thinking that?) And in any event, if a woman’s being gracious enough to let you under her skirt, you can be the gentleman and bring the supplies.
A Clean, Well-Stocked Place
If you’re planning on bringing women back to your place, you’re going to need to make it not look like a complete disaster. Can you get a boner when your room reeks of the takeout that you forgot to throw in the garbage two weeks ago? Even if you can, that doesn’t mean she will, and she’s perfectly within her rights to run screaming into the night without taking her clothes off if there’s roaches crawling all over the walls.
Even if she doesn’t have that dramatic a reaction, you can bet that she’ll be grossed out if your place is a total mess. And if she’s grossed out, not only will she not have a good time that means that you probably won’t have a good time either. She’ll probably be less willing to go home with future men, at that, and do you really want to be responsible for ruining another dude’s chances? That’s just cruel. Keep your place at a general level of clean if you’re planning on having a woman over, and keep the necessities stocked. Condoms lube, ball gags, toilet paper in the bathroom, you get the idea.
Cold, Hard Cash
No, we’re not suggesting you hire an escort if you’re not successful. If it happens that neither you nor your potential lady have a suitable place to head back to (women can have messy apartments too, you know), a hotel is always an option, so you should have the money available in paper or plastic to make it happen. Additionally, wherever you end up, you’ll want to have money for a cab or bus fare. Even if you’re at your own place, it’s the gentlemanly thing to do to pay for her ride home if she’s without a car. Keeping your one night stand happy is the key to getting more one night stands in the world as a whole, which makes everyone’s lives a little bit brighter.
