    go to bed with/ sleep with

    He wanted a woman he could go to bed with.

    He wanted a woman he could sleep with.


    Hi,

    Does the first one sound less promiscuous and gigolo-like on native ears, compared to the second one?

    or is it pretty much the same deal?

    There is no real difference between them.

    I don't think either of them make the man sound "promiscuous" or "gigolo-like". Most adult men (and women) would like to find someone that they can have an intimate relationship with.
