If a relationship is not on the cards at the moment, but you want to fulfil your physical needs nonetheless, casual sex is an easy choice. But the whole idea of having casual sex comes with a lot of ifs and buts. We help you with a check-list to refer to before you go for something like this.
Do: Make up your mind
You need to be very sure whether you actually want to go for it or not. Rationalise clearly with yourself first so that you don’t end up regretting it later. A free and open mind will help you deal with any hang-ups you might have later.
Do: Choose wisely
Casual sex might not turn out to be as casual as it sounds. So, be very careful while choosing your partner—preferably choose someone with an equally open mind and ready for the no-strings-attached liaison. And, of course, someone who’s sane enough not to come back to haunt you.
Do: Let it be wild
Hello! It’s supposed to be really hot and kinky if it spells casual sex. This is not about making love to your partner and going all mushy on each other. Try out all your wild fantasies and go crazy between the sheets.
Don’t: Compromise on safety
Ensure you have all your safety gear handy before going all the way. What if the guy turns out to be lousy who forgets to get condoms. Compromising on your safety is a big no, be it casual sex or a serious relationship. You definitely don’t want to end up getting pregnant or getting an STD, right?
Don’t: Take crap
Just because you have decided to have sex with no emotional bond, you are not asking to be ill-treated. Ensure that he doesn’t treat you badly, and is sensible enough to respect your needs. The outcome of the affair should be beneficial to both.
