General dating advice normally suggests going on a few dates with someone and really getting to know them before you invite them back to yours 'for a nightcap'.
But one woman has revealed she always has sex on the first date if she likes the man, claiming it has one huge benefit.
Single mum Elysia Downings , 28, believes getting intimate straight away helps to cut out time wasters and can actually speed up the process of finding someone special.
She told the Sun : "I don’t see anything wrong with always sleeping with men on first dates – in fact, there are benefits.
"If a guy is only interested in having sex with you, regardless of whether you do that on the first date or ten dates later, they’re going to disappear.
"So by having sex with them on the first date, you can work out where the relationship is going to end up. It helps make sure you're not wasting your time."
Elysia, who lives Buxton in Derbyshire, runs an online underwear and sex toy business called Betsy Boudoir and also works as a webcam girl.
She told Mirror Online she can make up to £72,000 a year and says the job has made her the "happiest she’s ever been".
The 28-year-old, from Buxton in Derbyshire, charges punters £3.99 a minute to watch her get her kit off and perform various erotic acts online.
She has around 500 subscribers, with some loyal fans dishing out thousands of pounds to see her private broadcasts from her bedroom.
She said: "You need to let go and not have any worries. It's all in our heads.
"I love doing it, I feel free and liberated – and I do feel powerful.
"It's been so good for my confidence, especially after having a baby and stretchmarks – I've learnt to accept my body.
"I know people will judge me regardless, but I am the happiest I've ever been."
On average she aims to make £500 a day for two to three hours work, and made £4,200 in the run up to Christmas in just one week.
Elysia, who has a six-year-old son, said: "I'm saving as much money as possible.
"Hopefully I am going to retire by the time I'm 40, which by that time my son will be 18, so I can enjoy life and not have to worry about work.
"And I really don't think it's all to do with attractiveness. It's just about being a businesswoman – and I've had years of practise seducing men."
