This is why you should always fuck on a first date, according to experts
You get a sex! And you get a sex!
by Amanda Ross
Hi my name is Amanda and I have withheld sex until an arbitrary number of dates (usually 3 or 4) in order to get a guy to "like me more."
And you know you've done it, too! I don't know if it was conditioning from movies or our Gen X parents or what, but the idea of waiting to have sex to somehow lock down a relationship is something most, if not all, of us think about. We're taught that dude's have a short attention span and if we "give it up" too easily, he'll move on to a better, shinier binch before we even have to chance to mop up the jizz on our stomachs. Or face. No judgement.
But what if I told you that…it was all bullshit? It's been whispered about for years amongst your liberated friends, but you dismissed it as fantasy or a male-planted lie.
If you don't have sex on your first date is it even love?

I'm here to tell you it's true: Relationship and sex experts have proven definitively that whether or not you fuck on a first date has exactly zero baring on whether or not you'll end up in a relationship.
I honestly don't judge people for having sex on the first date, shit happens

Seriously. It's officially 50-50. Samantha Jones has been saying it for years and if we had just listened to her, we'd be so much better off. Relationship experts Andrea Syrtash and Jeff Wilser have dedicated years to researching the phenomenon and the results are clear: If the chemistry is there and you want to be in a relationship, you. Regardless of if you give it up after two beers or two years.
So really, you should always have sex on a first date because it's the only true litmus test there is. Why waste time and money on nice outfits and shellac nails and Spanx or whatever to get to date three, fuck, and realize you hate each other? Wouldn't it make sense to figure it out right away?
yes I have SEX on the first date

Here are some of our fucking-on-the-first-date stories, ready for your judgement in the comments and your hearts:
"With my last serious relationship, we didn't just fuck on the first date — it was within like, an hour of meeting each other. Something about it just felt right and I was crazy attracted to him, so after one drink I suggested we head back to my house. We dated for over a year." — Amanda, 24
"One time I was hanging out with a guy on a study date at his dorm hall. We ended up having sex and he got pretty obsessed with me after that. I ended up never speaking to him again after the class ended, but I got the A and the D!" — Una, 20
"We had dinner and invited me round for some post-sushi fun. We went into her room and it was really white, sort of like rooms in asylums. As I’m putting a condom on, she suggests playing some music. After about 10 minutes I realized that she had put on a playlist that consisted of only one song: 'You Can’t Hurry Love' just on repeat. I’ve not spoken to her since that night." — Matt, 24
"I went out with a girl I met in one of my lectures. She seemed really cool, so we just grabbed a drink after class. Totally unexpectedly, we wound up having sex at the bar in the bathroom. And we dated seriously afterwards. It didn't make me think she was trashy, I thought it was cool that she didn't give a fuck and just went for it." — Josh, 23
"I once met up for drinks with this Tinder guy not thinking it was going to be more than sex and a gin and tonic. We said our awkward goodbyes and see you soons. The morning after, it hit me that I actually wanted to see him soon. So I messaged him to meet up but he never texted me back. Ever. Whatever." — Eleni, 24.

Your pain must end at some point
by Ari Bines
Once you've passed the 6-month mark in your relationship, you owe it them an in-person breakup. Many have (and will) take the easy way out, shooting the soon-to-be ex a text, voicemail or, if you're lucky, an actual phone call. It's tough being the bitch you've been rehearsing to be your whole life, but this…

What’s a little white lie to get you off my ass?
by Ari Bines
It's become pretty obvious that society holds women to a higher standard than men.But trying to be perfect is overrated and sometimes…we do something super naughty that archaic authority figures would hate: We lie our asses off to spare their feelings. So here's just a list of things we say we feel bad for doing,…
