Online dating is the social experiment that keeps on giving. I’m always amazed at hidden agendas it reveals. If I select that I’m looking for casual sex in my profile, I will literally get over 100 emails in a 24 hour period. Men are looking for no strings attached sex, but few will be completely open about their intentions. One of the strangest phenomena are men from out-of-town who seek sex with New York City women. My inbox overflows requests like these, yet nothing on my profile indicates that I’m looking for hook-ups. A typical email goes like this:
I think you’re hot. I’m going to be in New York City next week and I’d love to hook-up if you’re game for that sort of thing. If you aren’t, then my apologizes.
The straight forward approach is a bit unnerving, but they are easy enough to dismiss. I always admire anyone who has the courage to ask for what they want. As I’ve said many times on this blog, I wish more men were open and honest. For every email like that one, I get about 10 of these:
I really think we have a connection. Even though we haven’t met, I can tell from your profile that you’re a caring and loving woman. Something about your eyes, and smile are so inviting to me. I also think we have a lot in common, and we’d have a great time together. I’ll only be in town for a week, and I really need someone to show me around the city. I know I could just sit in my hotel room in between my work, but I’d rather spend it with someone special like you.
Those make me want to vomit. It’s also an obvious cut and paste. A guy will send the same email to dozens of women hoping one will bite. My profile is mostly random movie quotes. A savvier man will comment on the films I’ve quoted, or at least acknowledge that my profile is slightly unconventional. Talking about my eyes, smile or the many things we have in common is intentionally vague. Every woman has eyes, and most are smiling in at least one photo – so I guess a few might fall for complete drivel like that. Others might realize the guy is a total phony but they think he’s attractive enough for a one-night stand.
Then we have the truly slime inducing ones:
Look, I’m going to be in New York City next week. I’m going to be extremely busy. Maybe if you’re hot enough in person, I’ll make some time for you. You won’t regret it but you’d better be hot, or forget it. I’ve got nine inches of pure manhood and I love to make hot chicks moan.
Luckily men like this are rare. When I’ve gotten emails like these I’ve responded, “Why aren’t you on tinder” or “Hire a prostitute” or “I don’t need an out-of-town STD.”
Usually the men who proposition me for such liaisons aren’t exactly drop dead gorgeous, but a few have been. I’ve still never taken the bait. I’m not comfortable with these situations for a number of reasons.
- Are these men married? Who knows?
- Safety issues – Theft, sexual assault or worse
- Drugs – Will I be slipped something that will knock me out? Will the man be blazed out of his mind?
- Privacy – Photographs, video, webcams – technology has gotten so small anything is possible
- Unusual requests, unexpected kinky sex, inappropriate boundaries
- BAD SEX
The last one is in all caps for a reason. Sex with strangers is like rolling the dice, you really have no idea if you are going to have a steamy, hot night of passion or an awkward, uncomfortable evening of disappointment. Simply put sex with a total stranger, is sometimes not just mediocre but downright scaring. Most of the time when men have sex, they’ll at least have an orgasm. Any woman knows we aren’t always as lucky. A selfish or unskilled lover can make the entire enterprise one long night we wish we could forget forever.
Women also get hit up for free sex all the time. If I want no strings attached sex I can probably get that from someone I already know and trust a bit. I also don’t need a girlfriend or wife tracking me down weeks or months later when they’ve discovered an “affair” which was really just a random hook-up.
Overall these requests make me feel like I have no value. A sex worker might put up with strange sexual requests, a selfish one-sided lover or an uncomfortable experience. A prostitute at least gets paid, and usually quite well for their services. Of course some women love the turn on of having sex with a total stranger who they will never see again. However most women who want hot sex from out-of-town men are on hook-up sites like Adult Friend Finder and Tinder. It’s a bit of a leap for any man to assume all women want this type of sexual experience.
Basically. if you want to buy shoes, don’t go to a hat store. Plenty of women are waiting for your emails you just need to look for them on sites specific to your search. Sex workers are also always available, they might be pricy but there’s nothing wrong with an agreed upon transaction between consenting adults. Never assume the average gal on OKCupid or Match.com is waiting for your “Nine inches manhood.” We know it’s probably closer to six inches anyway. 🙂
