Why one night stands are dangerous

07 January 2015, 13:57 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I think that is the brave folk that are able to have an active sex life and still be single, furthermore, the bravest are the ones who constantly have random one night stands because I think they are the most dangerous form of sexual encounters.

Not only dangerous because of the STD factor but also for the following reasons

You can be robbed

I do not remember where I read this story but it went along the following lines. This woman was dating this man, and after drawing out what it was all leading to: sex, it was happening on this one night. After the clothes were eventually off and they were about to get busy, the doorbell supposedly rang. She had not heard it but the man had. It was at the woman’s place, but she did not want to get up naked so the man went and checked then came back but he claimed nothing was a miss and they got to it. The following morning when she woke up, her living room had been cleaned out of valuables and obviously the man had already left. On talking to the watchman downstairs, it seems her mister had gone downstairs and opened the door for a look alike, we will assume the brother. So while she was being kept busy in the bedroom, someone was busy taking her stuff in the living room. 

Moral of the story is, a one night stand will rob you blind at the slightest opportunity that they get.

Trust your gut

That voice at the back of your head that you like ignoring even when you are sober, may be what can save you from a dangerous situation. Going back home or to a motel or hotel with a complete stranger especially if you are a woman who cannot defend herself, may prove suicidal.

He or she can be a carjacker just leading you to the slaughter in your car. They can be serial killers, I did not believe they existed in Kenya even Africa thought they were found in Criminal Minds alone until they arrested that man that drunk people’s blood. The list is endless, but when you are out clubbing, taking some stranger home should be the last thing on your mind. You would rather a friends with benefits.

They can become stalkers

This is why you do no go to your place, you can even suggest theirs because once someone gets your home address you open yourself up to a lot of grief. One might think you now have a relationship and they can easily drop by.

Then there are the stupid folk who take someone they pay to have sex with to their home. You cannot take a call girl or escort to your house that in most cases leads to blackmail. 

It might seem like a good idea at the time, but do not do it.
