So you’re looking for a quickie; where do you go to better your chances of picking up?
A survey involving 10,121 members of casual dating site saucydates.com determined the locations where couples partaking in a one-night stand first meet. The report also showed the difference between countries with respect to percentage of people who have had a one night stand, and among those that did, how many one-night stands they had.
The dating site specifically asked:
- Have you ever had a one-night stand?
- How many one-night stands have you had?
- What location(s) did you meet your one-night stand(s)?
The survey found that bars and nightclubs are not the only locations to find free sex. In fact, these only account for 23% of all one night stands. And so, as per the survey, “if you start at a bar, walk through the street and end your night at popular hotel, you will (increase your chances of picking up to) a massive 40%; and you can boost that to 47% if you use public transport at the start of the evening.”
According to David Minns, founder of saucydates.com: “I was shocked to see that the street was the number one location for meeting a one-night stand, significantly higher than any dating app.”
Respondents concluded the following venues instigated one night stands:

The country most open to one-night stands is the UK (77%) by quite some way. However, the US, Germany and Cyprus all average more one-night stands per person (8) and top the charts over every other country in the survey. In Asia and the Pacific, Singapore (31%), China (29%), India (54%) and Malaysia (52%) are among the countries with respondents claiming to have had (a big percentage of) one-night stands.
