Because it feels good. B Females grow tired of their spouses sooner then males grow tired of their spouses. Thus disproving the notion that females are naturally inclined for monogamy.
The article does not mention these two earthshaking lessons. I would have killed to of seen these major advancements at least mentioned! Pro-family and pro-marriage research groups get an inordinate amount of money to further their cause. Almost every study that is performed regarding sex will find that women should be doing everything they can to have monogamous relationships that lead to marriage.
Of course, most women who function in the real world know otherwise. Consider re-assessing your statement. I'm a female in my 30's and I choose not to engage in casual sex relationships for many reasons.
Being someone who just wants to use me for sex leaves me feeling empty and lonely. I'd rather be with someone who cares about me and wants to be with me, someone who wants to get to know me and share things in life together. Sex is a beautiful, necessary part of life but it feels amazing to share it with someone you can trust, care for and build a relationship with. Casual sex is a waste of my time. I'd rather be a bit lonely on my own than be with someone who just wants to use me and move on.
A casual hookup isn't necessarily only about sex. Just like you can have an enjoyable and rewarding conversation with someone you haven't built a long term relationship with. Sometimes a casual hookup can have several rewarding aspects, and sex is only one of them. Everything on this planet is open to interpretation.
Movies, music, food, art, entertainment, etc. Everyone will always have different opinions. It all comes down to individual personal experience.
You are free to feel and think as you please, as am I. In my own personal past experience, I found absolutely nothing rewarding about casual sex.
If I have the option between casual sex with multiple partners or a meaningful relationship with one person, I'd choose to be in a relationship with someone I care about and can share my life with.
That doesn't make me right or wrong, it's just my preference. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. It really seems like a waste of time for you to reply to someone's comment by stating the obvious. I literally said in my comment that it depends on the individual. You might as well have said fire is hot and water is wet. No need to state the obvious. For most women in American culture, admitting to active casual sex is still an admission of "gateway behavior" to a life of prostitution.
The percentage disparity either means that young men tend to brag about their exploits true , or women tend to hold their cards close to avoid being shamed true. Well for this woman at 40, I'm loving casual sex for the first time in my life. I was far more reticent to engage in it when younger when I felt I had a reputation to protect, greater fears surrounding pregnancy, and still harboring my parents more conservative views.
Now I'm post-divorce, and more myself than ever. Casual sex is fun, freeing, and really something I'm kind of annoyed I missed out on for many years not just because of the sex, but the whole concept of loving so freely, being so myself, just having fun. Also, I think it's easier to do it older.
I know some men particularly those interested in relationship have tried to shame me about it. But at this stage in life I really don't care and know this says more about them than me. A young woman runs more risk to her reputation I think.
Seems there might be room for more research surrounding women's age and changing views on sexuality. I think the results might be surprising to the status quo. I feel that way now. In my early 20's, I felt that I was supposed to be in a serious, monogamous relationship and have kids with my husband and be happy with it. By my mid 20's, with a school aged child and an almost sexless marriage, I realized that I didn't want to be in a monogamous relationship anymore.
But I also wouldn't cheat on my husband. It wasn't long before he confessed the same feelings. We are now in an open, polyamorous marriage where we have a few casual partners occasionally, my husband has a boyfriend and we have a mutual boyfriend. I think a lot of what changed was growing further away from the beliefs I grew up with, the beliefs that were more my mother's than my own.
Julie, My experience matches yours exactly. I think when people are young and fertile, hoping to have a family, committed, monogamous sex is more important to them. As we get older and pregnancy really isn't on the table, casual sex becomes more appealing and infidelity becomes less of a big deal.
I'm a woman, nearly 50, recently dumped by my husband after 25 years of considering him my soul mate. Now I have a few male friends-with-benefits, and I'm happier than I've ever been.
We enjoy each others' company, including great sex, without all the demands and negativity of a full-on relationship. I've observed this in men as well -- as they and their wives get older, they often become less jealous and possessive, more interested in opening up their relationships. I'm a female, age Have been married twice, 8 years each, and have intentionally remained single for the past 25 years.
I've had so many delightful casual partners, some one-timers, some on a regular basis. Considering that I protect myself from the physical dangers, I can't even comprehend why it would be bad for me. I'm happy to have been young and single during the "sexual revolution" of the s and 70s, when casual sex was fun and acceptable for most. Do you really think people will engage or not engage in casual sex based on surveys about how other people feel about it?
Sounds like a lot of insecure people who want others to tell them what to do. I am not a prude. I had my share of casual sex when I was young and wild. I realized that it's no different than going to the bathroom -- satisfies a need but not emotionally fulfilling. Or, it''s like eating too much junk food, no nutritional value. The only people i know that have benefited from casual sex are the ones missing something inside. I decided I wanted better than that.
I want better than that for my kids, too. You know, there's a very simple, concrete explanation, for the difference in the proportions of men and women in the same population who report having had casual sexual encounters, even aside from men and women defining them differently, which is: Women who engage in casual sex can do so with more partners, more easily than men can.
Imagine a population of people, men and women. Of these, 14 men and 7 women are interested in and engage regularly in casual sex. Say, they all know each other, and they throw a big party every weekend.
And at that party, maybe some of the women hooked up with several men each. Some of the men hooked up with other men. Some women hooked up with women too! Maths solved; nobody lied. I fully agree with the opinions in this article. I appreciate recognizing that each person has a different emotional maturity and sexual-emotional maturity.
Overall this is a very good article, an enjoyable read! In my own experience. Having casual sex all the time would make you less committed and empty. When we are young.
We seek love and hope for marriage but as on the way for that. You sleep around dispersing your energy with someone who won't give a shit about you but moment usage of your body. But once you get older your soul or brain wiring change significantly as you can literally enjoy casual sex because you passed the emotional consequences stage when you were young. Bottom line casual sex isnt good if your young and is good when your old.

Why are the articles on your page sooo boringly written?? Work on making the articles easy to surf through or at least make them presentable. As a content writer I think you seriously need to work on this. I met my future husband for what we thought was a one nighter has turned out to be a nighter and two kids. Casual sex isn't always good sex. Women don't always orgasm with every partner.
When you hook up with some one new you never know what it will be like. If its bad, or you just can't get there it makes you hesitate next time around.
I think this accounts for the difference in attitudes between the sexes. It starts go get really depressing when you allow that level of intimacy and get no sexual satisfaction.
Eventually you become so discriminating that you become celibate. You should start putting gender words in alphabetical order rather than putting the male word first by convention. Alphabetical letters don't mind being discriminated against but people do. For example 'his or her' would be 'her or his' if they were in alphabetical order. So if regardless of moral rules casual sex had 0 negative impact, if participants your both consenting with the same value, then casual sex wont hurt emotionally, maybe std, but emotionally you got what you paid for so to speak.
The fact that less women were involved in casual sex is not religious, or moral, or they tend to attach emotionally. Its because they have a value set on their sexual expression. Us older gals call that passion. You can be passionate in sex along with the physical dynamics or you can be physically excited and simply just enjoy the physical dynamics. I have always had very liberal attitudes to sexuality in theory at least.
I never thought casual sex is anything immoral, quite opposite I thought it shows free spirited nature. But in practice I have always had sex only within an exclusive relationship. I had been single for a while and for the first time , I crossed path with a girl who we had a brief one week sexual relationship she was in town only for two weeks.
I still do not judge people who do I can't do it and I do not envy people who can.. 16 Jul So, casual sex isn't anything exotic for me.
