6 Important Ground Rules for Those New to Casual Sex

Ground Rules for Casual Sex

Even the smoothest Casanova you know was new to hookup culture at one time or another, so don’t worry. No matter how new you are to casual sex yourself, it’s easy enough to get the hang of things if you know the basics as far as what works. The following ground rules can help you find your groove when it comes to hooking up, as well as avoid some of the most common pitfalls newbies face.

1.      Make Sure You’re Ready

Like anything else worth doing in life, there are good reasons and bad reasons to have casual sex. Bad ones include trying to prove to yourself or your social circle that you’re over your last relationship when you’re totally not. This isn’t the kind of thing you should do because “everyone else is doing it” either, especially if you know you’re a relationship person deep down. However, if you’re going casual because you know it’s a better fit for who you are, either right now or in general, then more power to you!

6 Tips for Getting Your Mojo Back After a Break-Up

Getting Your Mojo Back After a Break-Up

Break-ups not only happen to the best of us, but they’re nothing if not complicated. Sometimes they’re unwanted, while other times they’re almost a relief. All of them can leave a person feeling like they’re not quite themselves for a while. Taking some time to yourself to get your bearings and regroup can be therapeutic for a while, but sooner or later, you’re going to be itching to get back to normal. Here are a few tips for coming back strong and getting your life back on track once you’re ready.

1.      Cleanse your social media of their presence.

Whether or not you think the break-up was for the best, it’s impossible to move past it if your ex is constantly turning up in your social media feeds. Unless there’s some reason the two of you need to stay in touch, unfriend and block them. This not only keeps them from showing up in the comment sections of mutual friends, but it will help curb the temptation to check in on them when you’ve got a little too much time on your hands. It also stops them from secretly checking up on you. While you’re at it, consider deleting their number from your phone as well.

Sizzling Rebound Flings: 8 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Partner

How to Choose an Ideal Rebound Fling Partner

Not everyone wants to deal with a recent break-up by swearing off dating and staying home alone until they’re completely over everything that happened. Some people find it much more natural to get right back out there, have a little fun, and sow their wild oats for a while instead. If you’re the latter, then you’re probably one of the many that actually benefit from rebound relationships.

Rebound relationships tend to get a bad rap in certain circles, but it’s largely undeserved. No, it’s not the best idea to jump into something else serious right after ending a major relationship. However, if you’re fully aware you’re on the rebound and make your choices accordingly, a rebound fling could be just the thing to help you bounce back sooner rather than later.

The key to success lies in choosing the right rebound partner. You want someone that’s up for having a carefree affair to remember, not someone that’s clingy because they aren’t on the same page you are. The following tips can help you make a choice you’re bound to be happy with.

6 Must-Know Bedroom Hacks for Lasting Longer Between the Sheets

Bedroom Hacks for Lasting Longer

As nice as it would be to turn in a Casanova-level performance every time you’re getting busy in the bedroom, most people do get that reality doesn’t necessarily allow for that. However, there’s a lot you can do to be better in bed overall, especially when it comes to lasting longer. The following tips can help you really bring your A-game to the table more consistently and to a much higher degree.

  1. Pay more attention to your health.

Pumping iron or lacing up your running shoes on the regular doesn’t just help you look better naked (although that’s definitely a nice bonus). The healthier you are, the better you become at just about everything that’s important to you, sex included, so you officially have one more reason to get serious about your workouts.

If you smoke, drink a lot, or do drugs on the regular, you might want to think about cutting way back, if not quitting altogether, as well. Smoking can drastically affect circulation throughout the body, including to the sex organs. Overuse of drugs and alcohol can likewise lower the quality of a person’s sexual performance.

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.

While ground rules may seem like they miss the point of being in an open relationship in the first place, this is far from the case.
