I don’t even know why I’m writing on this subject. No, not because of my lack of experience in the one night stand department; but because in general, men do not participate in the ‘walk of shame.’ Men simply, ‘walk home.’
It’s the typical double standard: the more men women sleep with – the sluttier she is; the more women men sleep with, the cooler he is. Hey I didn’t invent the rule, I’m just writing about it. That being said, I don’t know too many guys who really gave a shit about walking home the morning after a hook up.
Of course, as is always the case, there are a couple of exceptions to this rule. The first one being if said male wakes up in some girl’s bed, only to realize that girl is not his girlfriend. Then that walk becomes a bit dicier. I know quite a few males that were got screwed in this instance. Although let’s face it, cheating on your girlfriend isn’t exactly the coolest thing in the world.
The second exception is if the male wakes up and upon seeing his “conquest” becomes quesy, and not from the alcohol. Ultimately, the male knows if he can complete the walk back to his dorm without being spotted, he might be able to get away with it. However, if he is caught, he also knows he won’t be able to get away with ‘oh, just some random tri-delt slut’ when asked who he took down. He will be forced to confess and endure all the shit he will get from his frat dogs.
Back when I went to University of Richmond, the entire walk of shame for guys and girls was highlighted by the fact that almost no one could get away with it. Not only did guys and girls live in separate dorms, we lived on different sides of a fucking lake (no, midnight panty raids were not part of school culture). And in order to get to the other side, you pretty much had to walk right by student commons, where a guy might be able to blend in if he wasn’t too dressed up the night before, or across the lake, which would just make you stick out like the man-whore that you are.
Thankfully, U of R rid themselves of this ridiculous hindrance upon the resident mimboes and their female equivelant, and while dorms themselves are not mixed, at least both sides of the lakes are. This will hopefully lead to more casual sex for everyone, a happier student body & thus more positive press for the University…everybody wins!
