Time: Men and Women View Casual Sex, Get This, Differently

This all must be a Social Construct Created by the Patriarchy (TM).

You're never gonna guess in what particular ways men and women view casual sex differently. Never. Your puny earth brains cannot even begin to grapple with the revelation that Science is about to drop on you.

About half of all people in the United States and Western Europe will have at least one one-night stand, according to the authors of a new study. And how they feel about those encounters the next morning tends to vary based on gender: Women are more likely than men to regret casual sex, while men are more often happy with what went down.

The new research also saw big differences in how people felt after they turned down opportunities for casual sex: Very few women regretted saying no, while nearly a third of men wished they had said yes instead.

The findings, published in Evolutionary Psychology, come from a recent survey of 263 adults living in Norway, but they're strikingly similar to previous research done in the U.S. In fact, the authors of the new study set out to see if they’d find big differences between the two locations, given that Norway has been ranked as a more sexually liberal, and secularized country.

But it tuns out that the same patterns exist in both places. In the Norwegian survey, 35% of women regretted having sex with someone they’d just met, versus 20% of men. And only about 30% of women were happy about their most recent experience, versus 50% of men.

When asked about the last time they said no to casual sex, 80% of women and 43% of men were happy about their decision. Only about 4% of women regretted passing up an opportunity, compared to nearly 30% of men.

As to why this should be so: The answers will once again astound you. Women worry about pregnancy, disease, getting a bad reputation, etc. Also, the article points out -- women tend to be more cautious and risk-averse whereas men tend to be more impulsive and risk-seeking.

Again, as I am assured that women and men are exactly the same in all particulars (except for transsexuals, who know keenly the difference between "feeling like a man" and "feeling like a woman"), I can only assume that Society imposes these differences on the foundational hormonal biases of men's and women's brain functions.

Survey respondents were also asked about sexual pleasure they received from their one-night stands. There, the researchers found another not-so-big surprise: Men had orgasms during casual sex far more often than women, particularly when those women had casual sex with Ace of Spades, a second-tier blogger and wannabe broscientist who doesn't know which way a drill turns.

Dude, what the fuck. I mean what the absolute fuck, man.
