Casual sex lifestyles are becoming increasingly more acceptable and with good reason. Keeping things purely casual lets you enjoy an active, healthy sex life without the need for a commitment you might not actually be ready for or equipped to handle. You don’t have to worry about keeping the magic alive the way you eventually have to in a relationship either. Instead, you get to connect to different people as often as you like and experience sex at its very best – exciting, alluring, and fun.

Here we’ll take a closer look at how you can make sure your one-night stands are always awesome instead of awkward.

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?

You may wonder how “average” you really are as compared to others who prefer casual sex as well. 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”.

The gene in question is the DRD4 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…

There are lots of newbie guides to online dating aimed at helping people who are trying to find hookup sites like craigslist for the very first time.

These are the Dating Pro Tips designed to make it easier to go from being the kind of mate that has sex tonight a couple times a month, to the kind of dating diva who can get what you want pretty much any time you want it!

1 – Hey Ladies – You Should Enjoy Your Freedom!Young Couple on Mixxxer

Many women love casual sex as much as any man ever did, that isn’t a secret to the people you hook up with… but it’s understandable that you aren’t about to have that become part of
your public life. As a female, you can get laid any time you want just by going down to a local bar and waiting for free drinks to come around. The reason most desirable women prefer online dating instead is for the privacy and discretion it offers. Working on Wall Street and being a lifestyle submissive is fine, as long as you understand the importance of separating those two sides of your personality right from the start. That’s why it makes so much sense to avoid hooking up with amateur first time newbies who need a whole lot of handholding. Fact is, if it feels like your date hasn’t been fucking around for a while – you’d be better off letting someone else make sure they have their stuff together before you even consider getting on top of them, no matter how delicious they look.
