One night stands

Nickolaus Bauer speaks to psychologist Stephen Laverack about the implications of such casual sex.

One-night stands are understood as casual sex without demanding or expecting the extra commitments of a more formal romantic relationship.

Nickolaus Bauer speaks to psychologist Stephen Laverack to unpack the psychology of one-night stands and what you should keep in mind.

The first, most important thing would be safety, safe sex practices, but I also think it is personal safety as well. It is always important to make sure that if you are doing a hook-up like that, at least you tell someone about it so that you are protecting yourself from a safety perspective.

Stephen Laverack, Psychologist

Also know your boundaries, if it feels wrong and uncomfortable or making your feel pressurised in any way then knowing when to stop and making sure that you are able to say no.

Stephen Laverack, Psychologist

Very often in that moment in time, you are driven by some very powerful chemicals in your brain that are making your feel good, enhancing your mood or heightening your sexual interest.

Stephen Laverack, Psychologist

If you have been taking alcohol or drugs, may it is impairing your sort of good decision making behaviour and in the light of the day, often there can be regrets.
