Why Your One-Night Stand May Be A Keeper
Sex on the first date doesn’t necessarily doom a relationship, according to a University of Iowa study. Seriously, ladies. That’s not a pickup line.

Finally, scientists are focusing on something that matters: A University of Iowa study found that as long as two people are looking for a long-term relationship, their chances of having one with each other aren’t affected by how quickly they have sex. In other words, you may want to photocopy this study and hand it out on first dates.
The catch: If you or your partner have predetermined the encounter will strictly be a hit-it-and-split-it fling, you’re unlikely to see each other again. The study also pointed out what we hope is obvious: The more sex partners you have, the more STDs you become susceptible to contracting.
