Casual Sex

Casual Sex Is Good For You

The usual ‘concerned’ questions…Can casual sex ever be
wholesome? Or Is casual sex bad? and similar expectations
about casual relationships or friends with benefits.

The term casual sex and the more informal term
hooking up are often ambiguous and imprecise, as
the phrases are used in radically different ways.

Casual sex or hooking up refers to certain types of
sexual activity outside the context of a romantic relationship.

The term is not always used consistently: some use it
to refer to any extramarital sex, some use it to refer
to sex in a casual relationship.

Others reserve its use for one-time encounters,
promiscuity, or to refer to sex in the absence
of emotional attachment or love.

I Rarely Orgasm
with Casual Sex

I’ve slept with a fair number of men but I’ve had orgasms with only one, the person I was in a long-term relationship with.

My other sexual encounters had varying degrees of fun, but never resulted in sexual release. The men I’ve slept with always come. This is hardly surprising. In hookups, inequality still reigns.

Some guys, even random dudes I’ve brought home from bars, are really into getting women off. But most of them are driven by their own egos.

“Every girl I’ve ever been with has come” is something I’ve heard more than a few times from guys who just won’t stop until they’re sure you’ve reached their idea of satisfaction — orgasm.

I’ve been known to fake it with these men, because it’s just so much easier than explaining to a relative stranger

I just can’t orgasm unless I am really, really, really in the right mood and there are no distractions and I’m 1000 percent relaxed and my OCD/ADD isn’t acting up.

Also you have to be licking my pussy just right and it also helps if I use my vibrator while you’re fucking me, but even then it just might not happen. Don’t take it personally, I’m still having a great time!

I’ve given a few dudes the short version of that explanation and they all looked at me like I just killed their puppy.

Then, of course, there are the dudes who are just there to get theirs and get out. These dudes have been plentiful. Though they certainly won’t turn down a blow job, they conveniently skip past reciprocating.

There was one guy I hooked up with multiple times who showed zero interest in my satisfaction. I don’t think he tried at all. I was really frustrated.

Women are becoming equal partners in the hookup culture, often just as willing as young men to venture into sexual relationships without emotional ties.

But the pleasure we receive from those hookups isn’t level with the pleasure men receive. New research supports what my vagina already knows to be true. Women are less likely to have orgasms during uncommitted sexual encounters than in serious relationships

To be sure, some of this is certainly because of how our naughty bits are built. Many, many women have difficulty reaching orgasm through vaginal sex, but can through oral or manual stimulation of the clitoris.

But it’s not like the clit is a button you just have to push to start climaxing. It’s about pace and rhythm and pressure and it can take time for a partner to learn just the right combination.

It takes effort and interest on the part of men, and confidence and assertiveness and openness on the part of women — but many casual sex relationships lack that intimacy.

As someone who quite seriously has stopped actively trying to orgasm with my casual hookups, I wish we would change the perimeters of this discussion and be a little less rigid about what our definition of satisfaction is.

Because the way it’s defined now sets most women up to fail and men not to bother. Just because I may not come from oral sex during a casual hookup does not mean I don’t still want to receive oral sex. Just because I may not come during intercourse, doesn’t mean I don’t have positions I love more than others.

A guy I used to hook up with in New York moved to LA a few years ago, so whenever I’m out on the West Coast for work, we meet up for hotel sex.

That in itself can be hot, with or without orgasm. He’s really into having sex in front of a mirror. I’m into it too.

Sex in front of a mirror is fun and hot, with or without orgasm. Just as life is about the journey, not the destination, sex can be enjoyable and wonderful and funny and horny and hot and pleasurable even if it doesn’t culminate in a shuddering orgasm. Just because an orgasm may not be on the menu doesn’t mean I still don’t want to eat.

Something we don’t talk about is why having an orgasm is the main goal or the only goal. Who are we to say women should be having orgasms?

I’m 34 years old. I know by now how to get myself off. I want something else from casual sex. A way to release energy, a certain level of intimacy, the chance to play and experiment, the opportunity to give pleasure.

I look forward to eventually being in a relationship with a partner who satisfies me on an intellectual and emotional level. With him I’ll have the time, intimacy, trust and freedom to explore all facets of physical satisfaction.

But until then, I still want to get my pussy licked.

Hooking Up at College

A recent study asked college students about their sexual behavior, both oral and vaginal, to assess the prevalence and frequency of sexual hook-ups across the first year of college and to compare rates of hook-ups and romantic relationship sex.

The study determined that 40 percent of participants hooked up with sexual partners during their first year of college while 56 percent had sex with romantic partners instead.

A hook-up was defined as a sexual interaction between partners who are not dating or in a romantic relationship and do not expect commitment.

Seven to 18 percent of participants had a sexual hookup each month while 25-38 percent had sex with a romantic partner each month.

Hooking up varies in frequency over the first year in college, but remains less common than sex in the context of relationships.

The study determined that first-year hook ups occurred most often in the months of October and May and least often in the month of June.

Sex in a romantic context during the freshman year occurred least often in October and most often in the month of August before the start of sophomore year. In both casual and romantic sex, oral sex is more prevalent than vaginal sex.

Hooking up was more common at the start of the academic year compared with the start of the summer, which suggests that the college environment may facilitate hookups through proximity to other youth and opportunities for socializing.

Many people come to college not knowing other people so there may be a need for attachment. Sex can be comforting if you feel insecure. When we have an orgasm or have good sexual encounters we feel better about ourselves.

The study showed that the average number of oral and vaginal sex hookups per month ranged from one to three, which suggests that these behaviors are likely experimental rather than a regular pattern.

The freshman year is a time to explore, and not just sexually. You’re free of family and all those irritating parental questions. It give us the to experiment with sex.

The freshman type of mentality kicks in. New year, flexibility, no rigidness, nothing is definite, people are starting to feel looser. Time to get it on.

Ready to attend sexual experimentation classes? That’s what college is for.
