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…

Here in the 21st century, we have quite a few options when it comes to many areas of life. This is no less the case with dating than it is anything else. While traditional dating and relationships aren’t completely a thing of the past, we’re no longer stuck doing things that way if we decide it isn’t right for us.

Open relationships in particular represent the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the closeness and security that committed relationships bring to the table, but you’re also still free to explore other people sexually if you wish. However, there’s definitely a right way and a wrong way to approach such a situation.

It’s also worth noting that society doesn’t make the rules in this sort of situation; you do! Here we’ll take a closer look at how to set some good ones so that you can keep your open relationship happy, healthy, and fulfilling. Continue reading…
