Welcome To The Era Of The Half-Night Stand

The half-night stand is one way to avoid awkward conversations the next morning or the (poorly named) walk of shame. It seems that more and more women these days are taking a page out of the boy's playbook and leaving before the sun comes up. The difference, however, is that the women aren't leaving after getting what they want -- like an orgasm--  they are leaving because they aren't getting it. College aged women are saying they leave for a number of reasons, all of them being linked to a sense of dissatisfaction. Sometimes they find the lover's performance is less than exhilarating, other times, they are turned off by the lover's disinterest in "returning the favour." Whatever the reason, one thing is clear, women want what they were expecting. Interestingly enough, when 10 men between the ages of 24 and 27, who had been half-nighted, were asked, none of them believed the women left because they were dissatisfied. In fact, 2 of them admitted that they hadn't even considered it as a possibility. They all cited early morning meetings or not wanting to make the relationship leap of sleeping over as the reason for the early exits.

It is hard to determine what is causing this increase in half-night stands but it may have something to do with the increased use of apps like Tinder. If women aren't getting what they want, they know where they can start looking for it again. But is it possible that this leaving early is contributing to a cycle of bad sex? There is nothing wrong with hooking up for the sake of hooking up. We are all adults and can make our own decisions. But studies have found that women experience a greater level of sexual satisfaction when in a relationship, likely due to an increased level of comfort in communicating her sexual needs. Half-night stands won't exactly lead to a relationship. Furthermore, if women are leaving because they are dissatisfied, and not communicating this to their partner, how will that partner ever know? Are we creating a generation of clueless guys who don't know good sex from bad? What do you think of this trend? Do you think it is empowering that women are not sticking around to deal with the B.S. or do you think it is time we start verbally communicating the problem before we retire to our own bedchambers?
