Having a one-night stand can be a great experience — or a not-so-great one. "If you want to have a one-night stand, make sure you are doing it for the right reasons," Dr. Megan Stubbs, a sex and relationship expert, tells Bustle. "That this is something you 100 percent want to do, and you aren't being pressured or under the impression that this will make someone like you more." And part of that is knowing yourself. Some people are just never going to be comfortable with random hookups. And if you're that sort of person — that is totally OK. Don't ever do something when you know you're not going to feel good about it.
But if you are up for one-night stands and enjoy having casual sex, then there's no reason why you shouldn't go for it — as long as you're safe and both people are on the same page. In fact, sometimes a random hookup just what you need..
So if you're feeling in the mood for something sexy, you should totally go for it. Here are some very good reasons to have a one-night stand— though you may totally have your own, too.
