The walk of shame seems to be losing momentum as humans evolve; women gain more respect for themselves, men seem less interested in going for the easy lay and people put more time into relationships and making things work within that relationship. It looks as though celebrities are finally using their “powers” for good as more of them are speaking up about something personal to them. The traditional one night stand is starting to creep back into the dark ages and people are less enthusiastic to talk about their wild night of sex and more inclined to talk about the guy who is courting them in the most traditional of ways. Sex is often a hot button topic; normally when it is being praised it is quickly protested by religious groups, over protective mothers, and basically every censors group out there. It is interesting to see how the tables will turn once more celebs begin to talk about the way they approach sex in their personal lives. Recently, the talk was kicked off by Rihanna during an interview she did for the cover of Vanity Fair. Admitting that one night stands was not her thing shocked a lot of her fans and dare we say brought some new found respect to her often overly sexualized image. Although RiRi was not the first to make this claim, she was certainly the most vocal. It looks like it has officially been declared; one night stands are out and monogamous, healthy, lasting relationships are in. Read on to see a list of your favorite (and not so favorite) celebs discuss their commitment to no one night stands.
10. Katherine Heigl
Although most of the time actress Katherine Heigl is on everyone’s hate list, it looks as though this time she has done something intelligent that no one can really crap on. Heigl admitted that when she was single, it was hard for her not to jump into bed with someone when you get those urges, but she realized that the feeling afterwards was not worth it. Heigl told UK Cosmopolitan; “I don’t like them, I’ve never met a single woman who has ever walked away from a one-night stand and been like, ‘That was awesome! Oh, my God! Best ever!’”. You cannot disagree with that one.
9. Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher seems to be able to hook up with any woman he wants, so it was rather surprising that in a 2014 interview, he admitted to being a bit iffy about one night stands. Kutcher stated; ”For every girl you have a good time with for one night, if you want to stay single, that’s the same girl that you have to not call back. After a while, being the one-night stand guy is also just a little gross.” Luckily for Kutcher he found his soul mate in Mila Kunis, and has quickly settled into dad life with a newborn baby girl.
8. Mindy Kaling
Notoriously single Mindy Kaling, is basically who every young woman should aspire to be; she is confident, successful and drum roll please… she does not put out (well, not that easily). During an appearance in The Ellen DeGeneres Show in March of this year, Kaling revealed that not only is she single, but she does not do one night stands. Unlike her Mindy Project character, Kaling is very reserved and says that she usually disappoints dates when they find out that she is not wild and crazy like her character; “I think people get a little disappointed because my true self is like I could never do that… have a one-night stand”.
7. Megan Fox
Actress Megan Fox is generally portrayed as a highly sexual man-eater by Hollywood, but in her real life she is a homebody who prides herself on her inexperience with men. In a 2013 Harper’s Bazaar interview, the actress stated that the thought of having a one night stand made her physically ill. She admitted to only having sex with two men in her life; one was a childhood sweetheart and the other was fellow actor turned husband, now on the cusp on being the ex-husband, Brian Austin Green. Fox stated; “I can never have sex with someone that I don’t love, ever. The idea makes me sick. I’ve never even come close to having a one-night stand”.
6. Emmy Rossum
The Shameless actress plays a ruthless, tough talking, sex crazed girl but Emmy Rossum insists she is nothing like Fiona Gallagher; in fact, she’s on the complete opposite side. During an interview with Cosmopolitan, Rossum admitted that usually when she goes on a date guys expect her to be that sex-crazed character. However, do not get it twisted; Rossum insists she is not a “prude.” She said, “It’s not like I haven’t had sex on the first date, but usually that ended up in a two year relationship”. It looks like Rossum will be officially off the market again soon because she is in a relationship with director/writer Sam Esmail, and they recently got engaged.
5. Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan is one of the hottest young Hollywood actors in the game right now, and he continues to pick up admirers with every breath-taking word that comes out of his mouth. Jordan says all the right things and he seems like he is a relationship kind of guy according to an interview he did with Glamour magazine. When he was asked what he thinks about respecting a girl who has sex on the first date, Jordan simply stated, “No. No. Maybe… but a little less”. Yikes, it looks like he is not into the easy chicks but that’s good for every other girl who is looking for a real man.
4. Lena Dunham
In her memoir Not That Kind of Girl, actress Lena Dunham got really candid about her life; she covered everything from inappropriately touching her sister, drinking and partying, her typical college experience and even her take on one night stands. Dunham states that a night of fooling around and a potential one night stand situation turned into a “rough, unwanted sexual experience”. She drank too much, and ultimately did not have her guard up and mistakenly invited the guy back to her apartment and things turned left. Dunham obviously has a personal reason as to why she does not like one night stands, but her bravery in sharing that reason is helping millions of young girls who look up to her.
3. Katy Perry
With Katy Perry’s Christian background, no one should be surprised that she is not a girl you would pump and dump. During a 2014 Cosmopolitan cover interview, Perry admitted to not being strict about sex, but she will never engage in a one night stand. “I’m not like Professor Higgins with my sex life. I’m not super strict. For me, the most important thing about sex is connection.” Perry insists that she makes a potential boyfriend wait “maybe six months to a year” to have sex with her and she never stays single for long. It makes you think; is it better to not be into one night stands or be a serial dater and sleep with just as many guys?
2. Miranda Kerr
Model Miranda Kerr is known for being one of the sexiest women on the planet right now; she regularly flaunts her goodies for Victoria’s Secret and waited for marriage to lose her virginity. Now that she and actor Orlando Bloom are separated, she is back on the market but not everything is up for grabs. This mother of one is all about respecting herself and shuns one night stands. However, she does miss the benefits of having sex; she told Vogue magazine, “the more sex I have, the more defined my arms and stomach get. Orlando and I always had great chemistry. One-night stands aren’t my thing. I made Orlando wait for six months until I even kissed him”. Now that is will power. Good things come to those who wait, right?
Vanity Fair magazine really knows how to dig the dirt out of these celebrities; they introduced the world to Caitlyn Jenner, they unveiled mysteries about Marilyn Monroe, they exploited David Beckham’s abs, and the list goes on. So it came as no surprise that they got pop princess Rihanna to admit she’s not the sex-obsessed girl that everyone makes her out to be. RiRi said she cannot stomach the feelings she has after a one night stand; “because I don’t want to wake up the next day feeling guilty. I mean I get horny, I’m human, I’m a woman, I want to have sex. But what am I going to do—just find the first random cute dude that I think is going to be a great ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow?” Looks like Rihanna is trying to revamp her image.
