So what’s the big deal about casual sex? We’ve been trying to wrap our heads around the casual sex conundrum for years; guy takes girl home, guy gets high-fives all around. Girl takes guy home, girl gets no high-fives, and might be branded the ‘S’-word (hint; it rhymes with ‘butt’).
It sounds completely unfair to us, and science agrees.
According to findings published in the Journal of Sex Research – which was actually trying to prove the downside of a one night stand – casual encounters provide the same level of pleasure and satisfaction for women as they do for men.
And speaking of science, a lot of chemistry stuff goes on when two people get busy together. But we’re not talking lab geeks in white coats; we mean the good kind of chemistry. Stuff we like. Until now though, most people thought couples in a committed, stable relationship enjoyed more bedroom fireworks than their single friends.
Turns out that this, also, is not the case.
In fact, the research shows that two single people thrusting themselves into no-strings flings get the same short-term emotional and physical pleasure as their more steady-going counterparts.
But the study also says that women are more likely than men to experience anxiety about health concerns stemming from a one-nighter, so as always PicoBong recommends you keep it safe.
Rest assured then, casual sex is great for self confidence in all of us. So if it’s a little pick-me-up you’re looking for, throw away society’s rule book – you never know what you might find out!
