What to Pack In Your Party Bag: More Than Just A Change Of Clothes, Dude
Your bag is one of the most important parts of your one-night stand!
Before you go to hook up with any girl, make sure you have a bag packed. This is important, and something that most guys forget. This leads to fights, unhygienic practices, and embarrassment. Sometimes we don’t think clearly when hooking up even if it’s of a hookup online dating site.
Protect yourself by being proactive. Get over the idea that you don’t need a bag—you definitely do. Get a nice unisex messenger bag or shoulder bag, or even pack an old-school backpack. The bag itself isn’t nearly as important as what’s inside.
Pack a change of clothes.
This takes up a lot of room, but trust us, this is really important.
If you’re planning on going ANYWHERE the next morning from her place or the hotel, you MUST have a change of clothes. Going in rumpled and sweaty clothing from yesterday is going to make quite an impression, and not one you’ll be happy about making.
You’d be surprised at how many dudes do the walk of shame. These guys are not having the best of days. If you think no one will notice the clothes you’re wearing were already worn the night before…think again. Unless you were wearing crappy, stinky clothes, someone is going to notice that they’re yesterday’s model.
The walk of shame isn’t cool, and you’re not in college anymore. No one wants to high-five you for getting laid, they want to tell you to put on some fresh clothes and not be embarrassing yourself.
Protection is the MOST important thing. If you bring nothing else (and you should bring other stuff), bring protection. Bring twice as much as you think you’re going to need for safe sex.
Nothing is less sexy than having to run to the drugstore in the middle of sex because you ran out of condoms. And no, doing it bareback is NOT the answer. No self-respecting woman is going to let a guy she just met stick it in unwrapped—and if she does, that means she’s looking to trick you and have a baby.
There’s no way WE’RE getting anywhere near that mess, not for a million condoms. Hookup safety first!
The second most important thing on your list of stuff to put in your bag is lubricant. Let’s be fair here: the girl you’re hooking up with probably didn’t tell you whether she’s dry as a desert or gushes like a geyser. Just to be safe, bring a big ol’ bottle of lube. If you’re lucky, you might get to have some extra fun with that bottle.
If you guys talked about other stuff, go ahead and bring it. It never hurts to have a few fun sex toys in your bag, and you don’t have to use them if you don’t want to.
Let the moment dictate what you bring out of that bag. If you just want to stick with condoms and lube, that’s totally valid. If you’re feeling kind of adventurous and you want to bring up the vibrator you think would look great between her legs, she might be thrilled.
Pack a few surprises.
This one is a little more delicate to handle. Most of the things you bring should be personal supplies (condoms, lube, clothing). Others should be things you talked about.
However, you should put in a COUPLE things you didn’t discuss with her, yet want to try anyway. If you two are feeling adventurous and you’ve already had some luck with the rest of your goodie bag, go ahead and see if you can make things even steamier.
If you’re not sure if she’s in the mood to be experimental, start off with the stuff you DID talk about. Make sure you let her know that it’s all about her, and that you want to make her feel good. Indulge any fantasies she might have told you about.
After that, if she’s still not in the mood, just drop it. If she IS in the mood, go ahead and whip out the fun things you brought for both of you to enjoy. If she’s a wild chick, you’re about to find that out right now. If she’s more reserved than you’d have guessed, you’re also about to find that out. Choose which kind of girl you want to hook up with, but be prepared to be surprised.
So to recap, here are the top three rules for what to pack in your party bag:
- A change of clothes.
- Condoms, lube, and whatever you discussed before.
- A couple fun surprises.
