While you may think you're just living the carefree single life, your brain is influencing your decisions more than you might want to admit.1.
Men and women have very different morning after emotions. It's comparable to being addicted to crack cocaine. The shared, near-identical effect amounts to a rush of feel-good chemicals in your brain (or a "high") that leaves you with an enhanced mood, a heightened sexual interest, and a boost of self-confidence, not to mention impaired judgment that can influence you to make poor decisions in the dark of night that you come to regret in the light of day (the morning after). Psychologist Anne Campbell from the Durham University in England surveyed more than 3,300 people between the ages of 17 and 40.

"A one-night stand is like a vacation," Zoë Kors, a sex and intimacy coach, tells Bustle.

I'm sure you know how easy it is to meet people on the Internet, but did you know it was just as easy to find one night stands?"It can be very therapeutic to be intimate with someone who exists outside the structures of our regular lives.It’s a great way to step out of the bubble for a moment and play." One-night stands aren't for everyone, obviously, but for some people, the experience can provide a way to experience both physical pleasure and sexual expression without additional obligations that a relationship outside of the bedroom might call for, Kors says.“For instance, don’t tell someone that you want them to call out ‘Fuck me daddy!’ while engaging in vigorous intercourse if this was not agreed to beforehand,” she says.
