Making Casual Sex Work For You

It seems that everywhere we go today we hear about casual sex and how more and more people are finding that casual sex is a simple way of getting what they need physically without being tied down emotionally.

There is a misconception out there that men are more in favor of casual sex than women, but when you break it down there are just about even numbers of men and women taking part in casual sex. For many people it just works out better because they are not looking for a relationship.

Is casual sex something that you are interested in? Casual sex means different things to different people. Many people simply have a sexual relationship with someone that they consider a friend or an acquaintance without having any commitment to that person or a relationship. Other people simply meet new people and have sex with them and never look back.

It’s all what you are comfortable doing. Some people want to keep their casual sexual encounters with people that they know and trust, while other people do not want to complicate existing relationships with sex.

Regardless of who you choose to have casual sex with, your focus should not just be on the sex but also on your safety. Any time you have sex you are at risk of catching sexually transmitted diseases. If you are going to be having casual sex you cannot be certain of whether the person has been tested for STD’s and what the outcome of those tests has been. The result is that you need to protect yourself and you can never assume that a person is not infected with one disease or another. In fact, for safety’s sake, you should assume that they are infected so you take the right precautions.

If casual sex is something that you are really interested in there is no shame in that, you have a right to have sex with whomever you want. What you need to be certain of is that the people that you are intimate with realize that you don’t want a relationship. You need to be honest about your desire to fulfill your sexual needs without having any attachment or obligation to the person. You may find that a lot of people are really responsive to this while other people are offended by the idea of not having a relationship.

Being open and honest about having casual sex will allow you to enjoy your encounters without risking hurting anyone. Of course, if you decide that you no longer want to have commitment free sex, you can stop any time and start considering a relationship, it’s all up to you and finding what you are comfortable with and this may change over time!
