Sometimes sex-negativity gets us down. But casual sex is a part of life - and for lots of folks it's crucial to their health, well-being and sense of adventure.
Watched a classic horror film lately? Who was the first to die? Often, it’s two teenagers making out in a car parked on a deserted road. Things are getting sexy, the windows start to fog up, then BANG! Something evil comes out of the woods and slices them up like a leg of ham.
Nothing says ‘sex is bad’ like a slasher film.
I know I'm preaching to the converted - this is a blog about hook-ups, so if you've landed here it's unlikely you're settling in for a life of celibacy. But it's weird how feeling down about casual sex can affect us even while we're actually having it.
Ever heard any of the following from your potential partners? “Having more sex means a higher risk of STIs.” “If you get yourself into trouble, it’s nobody’s fault but your own.” “If you fuck them on the first date they won’t think you’re relationship material.” All this, and more, from a whole load of people who say they want to get sexy.
