Would you sleep with someone, who you found disagreeable, or off-putting, personality-wise, just because they're attractive?

Errant Venture Errant Venture
Yesterday, a friend of mine and I were watching a TV show - a singing/talent show - where a singer I absolutely cannot stand was a guest. I seriously cannot stand her music. However, my friend pointed out that, despite this hatred, I'd still sleep with her. I laughed, and snorted, and denied it all I could, yet it was true. She wasn't all that unattractive, and I've been known to jump anything that moves, and many things that don't.

I've a friend, too, who disagrees vehemently with the policies of one Sarah Palin, yet he happens to have a bit of a crush on her.

This got me thinking. Maybe this is more widespread than I thought? We all say that it's what's inside that counts (trying not to make a sex joke, here), and physical beauty may not be all that important, but I can't deny that there are some women I'd happily sleep with, despite their being dead behind the eyes.

So would you sleep with someone, who you found disagreeable, or off-putting, personality-wise? And is this a guy-only thing?

Sorry, one other thing I was interested in but forgot to add: Who is the one person you find most disgusting, yet would still sleep with?

I'd jump anything, irrespective of the person's opinions and lack of soul, just because I'm a randy bugger.

It would depend on the person.

In the past I had slept with people I didn't think were datable, which means there was something wrong with their personality.

I wouldn't now.

Back in college there was a this girl I just found so annoying I was ready to scratch my eyes out whenever she entered a room. - And she felt about the same with me, if not more so. Though, at a dorm party - where everybody were about as drunk as drunk can be - we sort'a ented up last two people standing, and horny as all hell - seeing as sex was going on in every room possible. Anyway, we emptied our drinks and went for it, and stayed in bed for the rest of the weekend - and never spoke of it again. Oh, and still ready to scratch my eyes out wheneyer she entered a room... I still find that to be one of the weirdest things done in my life... Weirder still, once in awile I'll use that weekend as focal point when I masturbate. It's my Freudian conundrum
Chilipepper Chilipepper
I wouldn't, but I've been offered by guys that hated me ... Still didn't.

Some have commented that I don't have the self-esteem and confidence to go after something 'better', but I just cannot be shallow enough to want anyone who would rather see me dead. And it still goes the other way - I get skeeved out by personalities despite the pretty packaging.
Beck Beck
It would depend on how horny or drunk I was. I wouldn't now that I am married but if I was not maybe.
froggiemoma froggiemoma
I have before.
Coralbell Coralbell
I don't think I could. I have done the opposite though and had sex with someone that I didn't find physically attractive but had a great personality.
lexical lexical
I recently encountered this dilemma. The guy continually tried to get in my pants. He was cute! But half the stuff that came out of his mouth was directly contrary to my beliefs. I couldn't stomach being physical with him, knowing that he believed these hateful things.
Rarity Rarity
I've not had the best day so far, but it's made me realize that some people are just plain gross. If said person had a rotten personality, my mood would be too spoiled for me to even look at them, much less touch them.
Lucidity Lucidity
I've slept with a few people I would never date, yes, because they were beyond super fine. Some were dumb, and some just boring. Buuut, I don't so much do that anymore.
indiglo indiglo
No I would not. In the past, when I was younger and crazier I probably would have - yes. But the person I am now? I would never do that in a million years.
Curves Curves
Nope, I wouldn't go for someone I didn't think was sexy both inside and out.
Antipova Antipova
Sigh. I kind of wish I could say I was better than this, but, um, totally guilty.

I can say I haven't and wouldn't have a serious relationship with someone I found disagreeable-yet-oh-so -hot. But I have slept with and had casual relationships with people like that.

And, I mean---not like people I thought were Stalin-in-training or terrible... just people I didn't agree with very often (like artists when I'm an engineer, or hard-core liberals when I'm kind of a libertarian). Or people who've bugged me a little bit because their egos were too big.

I also wouldn't sleep with someone whose religious views were different than mine, no matter how attractive they were. I'm also a stickler for good grammar (though I've let that requirement lapse when English is the guy's second language).
Generally speaking, attractiveness alone doesn't keep me interested in someone for more than a day or two. So, I might sleep with someone I didn't otherwise like but found attractive only if it was a one-time thing. But, I don't really do many one-time things... if I do it's usually a friend. So, won't say never, but not real likely.

For me, to be honest, I don't get someone wanting to get into my pants all that often so there have been times that I have gone a bit bed minded because I am shocked that they are directing a horny vibe at me in the first place. That and generally the ugliness in personality doesn't seem to rear it's head until after the act has happened.

As for someone that I would bang in spite of finding them disgusting personality wise, that would have to be Ashton Kuchter. The pretending to be dumb when you not makes my head hurt, particularly because he was getting a bachelors in Science when he was discovered because he wanted to work in a lab to find the cure for the disease that caused his brother to need an organ transplant. Which means that as an advocate for organ donation I am disgusted with him for not using his fame to increase the donor registries.

I have slept with men who were very beautiful on the outside, but they had really abrasive personalities, if any at all. Plus as you say "a lack of soul"! I found that very unsexy. Didn't mean that when their mouths were mute they were not wonderful in bed! Unfortunately a few were just as awful in bed as out! Seems pretty does not guarantee good sex. Anyway, I did not even try to form a relationship with any, except 1 who had an unusually large member that I got unintentionally hooked on. It lasted 2 years, but they weren't the happiest-except in bed. I had to get away from him on a regular basis, but was drawn back again and again by his cock. Not healthy, but what can I say? I didn't respect him -except in bed.

On the other hand, I have slept with men with whom I wasn't physically attracted to, but they had great personalities and made me laugh and enjoy their company. The sex was still good, sometimes great! I've had the best relationships with these type men. I had respect for these men. Sex isn't everything it seems!

These days, I find myself seeking a "good hearted" man, if the sex is good too, so much the better. I've gotten a lot more particular, and if someone curdles my stomach out of bed, there is no way he's going to get me into bed to find out what's going on there.

Sadly, I am guilty of this. Not only guilty of sleeping with, but dating someone who was a pretty awful person because I thought he was hot. Not the best relationship. He cheated on me and treated me like dirt. I stayed longer than I should have because I was a sucker for his looks. I didn't intend to date him. I intended just to have sex once or twice but got suckered in. I would NEVER do it again.

i will sleep with someone i really like

I'm guilty of sleeping with pretty boys for that fact only. Atleast in my younger years. I wasn't looking for convo or relationships at that time.
LilLostLenore LilLostLenore
I think bam margera (actor and jackass star) is a total asshole and lots of people think hes a real fucking prick in real life, but hes hella hot and id still fuck the shit out of him once or twice.
Kkay Kkay
Would I be tempted if it was just sex? Sure. After all, hate!sex can be hot. But if it was less someone I butted heads with and more someone who went against what I believe in, then no, absolutely not.

it is kind of a whole package thing. it all has to be there for me to sleep with them.
null null
No, I'm mainly attracted to personality/intellect, and physical attraction is really low on my importance level.
Ms. Spice Ms. Spice
with enough alcohol, the most annoying person in the room can seem like the sexiest person in the world. However, seeing that I'm sober most of the time, the requirement is that I need at least be able to tolerate them for five minutes at the very minimum to consider sleeping with them
Taylor Taylor
I wouldn't ever do this. I guess I feel like there's lots of guys with great personalities that I could be spending my time with, so why would I want to waste my time with someone I didn't like? Also in my experience, the really good looking guys I've dated have tended to be less kind to me and more selfish. I'd much prefer an average (or worse) looking guy who cared about me.
geliebt geliebt
Absolutely not, never ever ever.
I keep sex in a really special, vulnerable place in my mind. For it to happen (any sexual activity at all) I need a LOT of trust, and indeed a lot of love there already. If everything isn't right, it's just harmful to me. I don't care how good looking anyone is. No love, no trust, no sex!

To truly get into the act I have to have SOME sort of good feelings for the person otherwise I am unable to get in the mood, as it were. Negative feelings for a person carry over for me and I can't convince my libido that having sex would be a good thing! Drives Sigel nuts since he can easiy divorce feelings from sex but even Arch admits he could if the situation was right. In my experience I have not ever been able to do this and regretted the situation if I went ahead and did it anyhow.

Hell no. If I can't have a personality connection with the person, there won't be anything happening with them - EVER! I just can't force myself to do it.

I would totally try to get in your pants! (Well... if I was into women).
