We all have our own unique perspectives – be it bad or not – when it comes to the one night stand. But regardless of the choice, it has now become a full fledged culture of our modern society. Some even see it as an opportunity to understand the opposite sex.
2000 people from ages 18 to 64 were interviewed in a recent survey for Glamour Magazine about their casual one-night stand experiences. 82% confessed having at least one such experience and 19% of those regret that it ever happened.
The western world is embracing this trend with movies and television promoting such lifestyle. But not all countries have joined the revolution.
Without further talk, below are the top cities that have embraced one night stand as a culture.
#1. Berlin, Germany.
Just because of the annual exotic Love Parade dating back to 1989, Berlin has become a year round tourist spot where locals and tourist are very open about their intimate tendencies. There is no discrimination and people have also embraced the LGBT community. The fact that Berlin legalized prostitution helped to rank this city at no. 10 spots on the list.
It no surprise that the British capital also rated as the most hungover, in a tie with Sydney. More than two thirds (68 per cent) of revelers in Sydney and London admitted to at least one hangover in the last month. Though it came in sixth for one night stands, Paris was top of the table when it comes to the most amount of sex. Respondents in the French capital reported having sex on average 1.64 times per week, easily eclipsing their competition. Lisbon was the second most popular place – where people are having sex 1.51 times a week. Miami (1.45) and Barcelona (1.42) followed closely, as did Los Angeles in fifth (1.38).
#3. Swansea, Wales.
Swansea is a coastal city and county in Wales. It is the second largest city in Wales after Cardiff and the twenty-fifth largest city in the United Kingdom. Swansea has been named the most likely place for a person to have a one night stand, in a survey highlighting the risk of sexually transmitted infections.
#4. Newcastle, UK.
Newcastle is the most populous city in the North East and forms the core of the Tyneside conurbation, the eighth most populous urban area in the United Kingdom. Newcastle, in contrast, is the most well-behaved city, with only four per cent of people there admitting to having casual sex.
#5. Las Vegas, Nevada.
The city of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife. The Las Vegas Valley as a whole serves as the leading financial, commercial, and cultural center for Nevada.
“Las Vegas, you need to step up your naughtiness game.”
The city that brags, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” looks practically wholesome when it comes to vacation hookups, according to Match.com’s annual Singles in America survey.
The survey, taken earlier this year, asked 5,000 people (from census rolls, not Match members) about their love lives while on vacation. The findings showed that when singles look to fool around on holiday, they go west. All of the lustful things you can ever imagine are wonderfully cultivated in this city. There’s nothing like a solid Vegas experience!
#6. Edinburgh and Birmingham.
Edinburgh and Birmingham came in at a joint second with 11 per cent of respondents admitting to a fling in December.
Nationally, more people under the age of 25 reported having a one night stand, with 15 per cent saying they had.
Worryingly, the survey also found that 13 per cent of the 2,000 respondents had sex without a condom during a one night stand, with people aged 25 to 34 being the demographic most likely to have unprotected sex. One in ten admitted to having sex without a condom with more than one person.
