Science Defines Booty Calls, One-Night Stands

This is why it's so important to study science!

No! I am NOT being sarcastic this time ;-) 


Previously, Jonason had studied booty calls — or casual sexual relationships in which one party calls or texts the other for sex that day or evening — and found that they involve more emotion than one-night stands but are far less "touchy-feely" than long-term relationships. 

In the new research, Jonason surveyed 192 undergraduate students — 124 women and 68 men — at the University of West Florida. Each participant was asked to rank how likely booty calls, friends with benefits (people who have casual sex while remaining "just friends"), long-term relationships and one-night stands were to fulfill each of four functions: sexual gratification, social and emotional support, a "trial run" for a serious relationship and a placeholder to stave off boredom or to bide time until something better came along.
