The ladies over at Daily Bedpost, a pretty fun blog that’s “all about sex,” posed this question yesterday, “Should a woman not have sex on a first date?” and had a few guys weigh in with advice. To summarize, the “gay engaged guy” said you should not shag on the first date but that you should pretend like you want to but then feign an emergency and leave so you get cool points for wanting to hit the sack. The “straight married guy” recommends waiting while the “straight single guy” thinks you should just go for it if you’re “emotionally balanced” enough.

Now that I’m an old married lady I don’t have to deal with this issue, but I’ll admit that when I was single I never put out on a first date, or even a second one for that matter. When it came to giving up my goodies, I was pretty old fashioned. But I want to add that the only reason we’re having this conversation is because of the double standards regarding sex. If a woman has sex on a first date she’s seen as easy or even a slut by some people, but if a man has sex on a first date he gets a pat on the back. But I digress.
What do you think? If a woman wants to have sex on a first date, should she do it?
