'One Night Stand Guide' told men to 'prey' on women and get them drunk

A ‘One Night Stand Guide – For Him’ on the compared the sexual act to “murder”.

A SELF-DESCRIBED “inter-varsity, student humour and lifestyle” website has removed an article that told men how to “prey” on young women and get them drunk in order to have sex.

The piece, a ‘One Night Stand Guide – For Him’ on the was written by a woman Joanna Stroinska and used sexual violence references, comparing the sexual act to a “murder”.

The article, posted two days ago, has since been removed from the site following a backlash from readers and on Twitter.

The website has also had to issue a public apology to its sponsor 7UP for posting the article alongside advertisements for the brand. They described this as a “technical failure” on their behalf and editor Greta Dunne said she wanted to “make it clear that 7UP would never be associated with content of this type”.

Here’s the first paragraph of the offensive article on To read the article in its entirety, click here.

Daddy issues

The step-by-step explainer suggests that the man should get his “prey” intoxicated by offering her some “shots” as “you want to establish that this isn’t love”.

Following this, Strionska writes “get her into a taxi ASAP” and once the man has her home, “don’t waste time with the nonsense of house tours to make her feel comfortable. This is an ‘in and out’ job.”

Again, to ensure you don’t get a clinger make sure the sex implies as little relationship qualities as possible.

Avoid kissing, bend her over and by all means – don’t look in her eyes!

“When the job is done”, Strionska suggests getting the female who preferably has “low self-esteem and potential daddy issues” into a “taxi back to where ever the hell she is going”.

Letting her stay the night once she’s sobered enough to comprehend her mistakes is a huge dagger in the one-night-stand code of ethics.

The article ‘One Night Stand – For Men’ was written by a woman to highlight, in a satirical fashion, behaviours that occur commonly within our society. The article was based on the observations of a student, College Times never intended to offend any of our readers.

When contacted Jamie White of Midnight for a comment he said “go away” and refused to comment further.
