    Men tend to envision girls’ night as the equivalent of a bachelor party—girl-on-girl action included. Sadly, “that’s probably more a fantasy than anything,” says Debba Haupert, founder of Girlfriendology.com. The truth is, there’s usually more deep conversation than flirting—which means her night out probably benefits you more than it threatens your bond.

    “Girls’ night is our way of de-stressing,” says Haupert. “It’s a great opportunity to vent—and it saves you from having to analyze things with her.” So what the heck do women talk about? And should you be worried about the dudes your partner encounters when she’s half-tanked on wine? Here’s the truth.

    And, no, we don’t mean the size of your bank account. Before you freak, keep in mind, she’ll divulge the details only if you’re one of the extremes: super small or hung like a horse. Even then, the tiny guys get exposed only when the relationship is a fling. “If she’s in love with you, she’s going to be very protective, so she won’t say anything negative,” says Marianne Brandon, Ph.D., author of Monogamy: The Untold Story. Still worried? Don’t be. “Women aren’t as critical about size as men think they are,” says Brandon. If you think you’re on the smallish side, she probably thinks you’re average—and when women are trying to one-up each other with hilarious stories, a “normal” penis isn’t even worth mentioning.

    Is your girlfriend grinding with another guy on the dance floor? Most likely not. “We just want to be with our friends,” says Haupert. “Dancing with our girlfriends is no-pressure fun. We’re not there to hang out with guys.” Of course, there will always be creepers who try to encroach on the circle—and it wouldn’t be a girls’ night without them. Laughing at weird dudes together is usually more fun that flirting. Even if she does let a guy hit on her, it’s only going to boost her confidence, and you’ll be the one to reap the benefits later. (If you have a good rapport with her pals, they won’t let her do anything stupid.)

  • 3. THEY DISCUSS HOW YOU KISS.
    4 / 6 3. THEY DISCUSS HOW YOU KISS.

    Your buddies ask: Is she a good lay? But her friends ask: Is he a good kisser? “Women think this gives them a lot of information about how a man is as a lover,” says Brandon. “They base quite a lot on how a man kisses.” In fact, in an Albright College study, only 10 percent of women said they’d sleep with a guy before kissing him, whereas half of men said they’d hit the sheets with a new partner before smooching. She may be more likely to bust your chops about kissing than sex, since she probably doesn’t feel loyal to you yet if you’ve only locked lips. But, really, women talk about everything—work, family, vacations—so your shortcomings won’t be the focus of the night.

    Some girls even cram into stalls together—and the chitchat doesn’t stop once they hit the toilets. “You get a chance to have more intimate conversation with a couple girlfriends, if there’s something you don’t want to talk about in the group,” says Haupert. Plus, one pal can confirm the other hasn’t drunkenly applied lip gloss to her teeth—or hand her toilet paper when she finds out her stall’s stash is depleted. (This is a perpetual problem in the ladies’ room: In a British survey, half of women said one of the most annoying parts of going out is the TP shortage.)

    Girls’ night isn’t always at the club—women love to meet up at restaurants, or just drink wine, eat cheese, and chill out. In fact, one survey showed that 70 percent of women prefer a girls’ night in. “Food is definitely a bonding thing among women,” says Haupert. “When we get together, one of the primary thoughts is: Are we going to eat? It’s a special occasion, and we let ourselves indulge.” The cliché is true: The same survey revealed that wine truly is the ladies’ night drink of choice.
