3 Rules for Sex When You Are Single or Dating
There are a few things to remember about having sex when not in a relationship.

2. If you do decide to hit the hay together before some of these things have been established, that’s okay too, but you have to be okay then with the gray area that may come afterwards. Trying to establish the relationship now, after you have had sex, while in the gray area may be trickier, especially if someone is still trying to get to know you. If you all of a sudden find yourself super drawn to this individual, but haven’t gotten to know them yet, you may have to slow it down.

3. Have sex without any expectation.   Of course, you can always go into the bedroom with no expectations what-so-ever of what is to come afterwards. So, if you find yourself having a sexual interlude with someone whom you have no established connection with, or if you’re friends who are just flirting, go in there with no expectation of the outcome. Sex can be a fun experience that is devoid of complications… if you take it at face value. But, in the end this may be easier said than done.

I read a lot of articles bashing "hook up culture" — its a term du jour, kind of like "menage a trois" was in the 80's — but this term unlike the latter, is not associated with being sex positive and it's usually not written about in a positive light. We live in a society where it often seems like we ... Read more
