Sex hookups in jacksonville nc St maarten adult dating
Meanwhile, others think the current digital hookup culture is a great way to be sexually active while single, and maybe even a good way to meet someone who might become a longer-term partner. In the post-Kinsey world, there is not a lot of research looking at the psychological effects of casual sex on those who do (or don’t) engage in it.In the research that does exist, the primary focus is generally limited to the question: Are the people who engage in casual sex more depressed, and do they have lower self-esteem, than the people who aren’t having casual sex?
Nevertheless, people do have opinions on the topic, and here is mine (based on existing research along with more than two decades working as a psychotherapist with a specialization in sex and intimacy issues): If casual sexual activity doesn’t violate your moral code, your sense of integrity, or the commitments you have made to yourself and/or others, then it’s probably not going to be a problem for you in terms of your psychological wellbeing.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. For most women in American culture, admitting to active casual sex is still an admission of "gateway behavior" to a life of prostitution.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. It really seems like a waste of time for you to reply to someone's comment by stating the obvious.
