Women are so much saucier than men

You can now book luxury hotel rooms by the hour. And women are doing all of the booking. Bibi Lynch investigates.

Now I in no way want to suggest women are sex-obsessed but, oh, ladies, it seems you’re quite the minxes! A new online hotel booking service, Dayuse-hotels.com, allows people to book rooms in luxury London hotels for a few hours in the day (for every kind of meeting…). And it seems that 60% of those bookings are being made by women.

 

Yeah, baby! Women are taking charge and instigating some afternoon delight

Thibaud d’Agrèves, co-founder of Dayuse-hotels.com, has interpreted that information thus: ‘It’s an intriguing dynamic. It suggests women in the UK have a greater level of confidence and are happy to take the lead in a relationship.’

 

Yeah, baby! Women are taking charge and instigating some afternoon delight? I’m not at all surprised. Women are way saucier than men! 

 

Those ‘last night of freedom’ parties? It’s the Hens running around town with handcuffs attached to their nylon veils and terrorising poor male strippers! (Yes, I know Stags are supposed to run (rut?) wild and get up to all sorts of ‘don’t tell the Bride’ mischief — but the truth is many stag nights end up in a boozer with drunken Johnny showing his mate Terry photos of his intended on his iPhone. ‘I don’t deserve her, Tel. I just don’t.’)

 

Women are so the saucier sex! It’s women who’ll slip on lacy undies or a Princess Leia outfit to spice up the action

When girlfriends get together, especially if honorary gal Jack Daniels is involved, any talk of a ‘romantic’ nature can easily get giggly and detailed. Whereas I believe men will ‘reminisce’ in a more gentlemanly fashion.

 

Women are so the saucier sex! It’s women who’ll slip on lacy undies or a Princess Leia outfit to spice up the action (for us to judge it is not) — although, in truth, perhaps we should pray silent thanks that men do resist the lure of the basque. We even have a patron saint of sex toys, for chrissakes! (Another silent thanks here. This time to St Ann of Summers.)

 

So why is the fairer sex the cheekier sex? Because we’re the concerned, cannier sex and know that our sex lives need constant titillation or they’ll, er, flag? Or simply because we really rather enjoy some good old-fashioned clean (ish) fun? It doesn’t really matter which, does it? Either way it’s a win:win. So why not book next Wednesday afternoon off work, dust down your ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign, and treat yourself to some room service…? *winks*
