A recent survey found that nearly half of the respondents have had sex on the first date. We talk to men and women about the benefits of hooking up in a hurry.
Thanks to hookup culture, apps like Tinder and the general de-stigmatization of horniness, more people are saying “yes” to sex on the first date than in the past. A recent study conducted by Lovehoney found that 49% of those surveyed—59% of male respondents and 43% of female respondents—reported bumping uglies after one meeting. This new type of no-wait mating seems like it’s here to stay, judging from our own research.
“I don’t care if it’s the third date or the first date; if I’m feeling a connection, then we’re gonna fuck,” Amber* tells HUSTLERMagazine.com. “You never know if the relationship is going to work out or not, so it’s kinda arbitrary when to get it on. If he’s gonna hit it and quit it, he’ll do it whenever—first, third or tenth date. Who the fuck cares?”

Lovehoney polled 2,000 people about sex on the first date, and the respondents who were down to pound on Date One gave various reasons why they were okay with this behavior. Fifty-three percent said they had sex early because they enjoyed it, 46% said they wanted to test sexual compatibility, 26% said sex on the first date helps them connect on a sexual level quicker and 20% said they wanted to share their kinks early, before they got emotionally invested.
At least one horny man we spoke to falls into that latter category.
