Hook-up culture is definitely a lot more mainstream these days, but that hardly means those that enjoy the associated lifestyle don’t have the occasional question. How much of what we believe about why people have one-night stands or casual sex is fact and how much is fiction?

Here we’ll go over some interesting facts, figures, and discoveries about casual sex and one-night stands, the better to answer your burning questions. How many of the following facts did you already know?

  1. Your preference for casual sex could be genetic.

If you’ve always instinctively gravitated toward casual sex and open relationships because they feel more natural to you, it might be because of something that’s written in your genes. According to one study conducted by the State University of New York, some people actually are born predisposed toward a preference for casual sex thanks to a “hook-up gene”.

Those that inherit that gene are more likely to prefer one-night stands, as well as more likely than average to cheat within the confines of monogamous relationships. They’re also more likely to crave “sensation-seeking” experiences in general (i.e. gambling or drug-related highs). Continue reading…

9 Surprising Benefits of Having Casual Sex

Casual sex is the type of thing that gets a bad rap in certain circles, but it really shouldn’t. No, it’s definitely not right for everyone, but for some people it’s actually many times more beneficial than being in a monogamous relationship. Here we’ll take a closer look at some of the many ways indulging your interest in casual sex is actually an excellent idea for the right type of person, the better to help you determine whether or not it’s right for you.

  1. It’s really empowering from a sexual standpoint.

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably had certain ideas about sex drilled into your head from the time you were really young. To be more specific, you were probably taught that having sex is and should be something that happens only within the context of a committed relationship. To choose to do otherwise is “dirty”, “wrong”, and “immoral”.

For someone that was raised on such notions, asserting and acting on your true desires in regards to sex can be incredibly liberating. This is especially the case for women who tend to grow up with even more sexually limiting stereotypes than men do. Defying a widespread stereotype and refusing to let it dictate your life for you quite simply feels good and is well worth trying. It shows others that it’s OK to live their own truth as well.

  1. It can help you get over your inhibitions.

The beginning stage of a new relationship is definitely an exciting time. However, it also tends to be a time of anxiety, worry, and apprehension. Since we’re focused on making sure the connection lasts, even the most confident among us is usually hyper-concerned with wanting that other person to like us and think well of us. Unfortunately that can mean we aren’t necessarily as honest and open about things like fetishes or fantasies as we might be later on.

When you take the commitment out of the equation, there’s not as much at stake emotionally. You’re free to be present right there in the moment and focus on having the most satisfying sex possible. Most people are less inhibited as a result and feel more comfortable asking for what they really want in bed. Continue reading…
