The Gentleman’s Guide to the Booty Call

Ah, the old booty call. Often desired and frequently squandered – it seems like when you need it, it’s never there. Despite the rise in popularity of rapid-fire dating apps like Tinder, Grindr and Bumble, getting some last minute action (especially late at night) isn’t that easy. The setting up of a situation in which it’s appropriate for you to beckon someone to your bed is one thing, and actually getting them over is another. It takes finesse; a certain charm that lets your potential bedmate know you’re worth the 1AM taxi ride. So how do you set up a solid, reliable booty call arrangement?

Top Tips for a Successful Booty Call

  • Don’t be a stranger. Really, I mean not in a “keep in touch” kind of way, but don’t hit up women (or men) you don’t know or haven’t met in person yet. Online and app dating can be completely safe when done right, so this advice isn’t to just exclude anyone you’ve met through OKCupid or Tinder. But if you’ve matched and not yet met up, reaching out for a little somethin’ somethin’ is a nearly fool-proof way to get unmatched or worse.
  • Don’t try it on with anyone you have unrequited feelings for, or who has a thing for you. Leading them on just to get your jollies is unnecessary (and plain cruel) considering there are plenty of unemotional fish in the sea. This probably means no exes and no one you’d like to stay friends with when it ends – and it will end.
  • Try and introduce the concept of having sex with your intended before you send them a text message that reads “You up?” Engage in flirty banter, casually drop the “I’m not looking for a relationship, but I have needs” line where necessary, maybe even exchange some responsible nudes for building up the sexual tension.
  • Don’t talk about your other sexcapades. Even with this no-strings-attached sex, it’s still tactless to brag or mention other hook ups around your guest. Enjoy your time together while it’s happening, and without talking about other people.
  • Don’t plan your meetings too far in advance. A booty call is meant to be spur of the moment, based on immediate urges for physical pleasure. “Hello, are you free for coitus on Friday at say, 8pm?” I wouldn’t respond to that question, and you shouldn’t ask it.
  • Don’t chase them up the next day, thanking them for staying or hanging out. A “Thanks for the sex” message is direct and leaves no room for misinterpretation.

To sum up, keep it casual. If you’re only in touch when you want to get down, that’ll only last for so long. Be able to back it up with serious bedroom skills and your hotline is sure to bling. Indulge in doggy style and reverse cowgirl to keep eye contact to a minimum and always wear a condom. There’s nothing wrong with casual sex with multiple partners but don’t risk everyone’s health for a few minutes of pleasure. If at any stage you have feelings, or suspect that your partner does, slow it down and re-evaluate the friends with benefits situation through conversation.
