Online Dating = Sex on the First Date
Sexuality Research and Social Policy recently published an article about the sexual tendencies of women who date online.
According to the stats a staggering one-third of women in the U.S. have sex with a person they met online on the first date. In addition, 27 percent of said women perform oral sex on the first date.
This is amazing news for gun-shy, introverted, computer-literate dweebs! (I think.)
Of course, there is a hitch. In this day and age of anonymity, there’s never a sure-fire way to know if your blind-date is hot, clean nympho or a gross, disease-infested nympho. And let me tell you folks, there is a difference.
It’s practically undeniable that anybody that has to rely on social networks to get laid – notice I didn’t say relationships; that’s a whole article unto itself – is either wildly desperate for sex with any form of human or so far removed from any chances with the local crowd due to some sort of sexually transmitted disease. There has to be a valid reason why certain types peruse online in hopes of finding sex with no strings attached. Your brain wants to believe that the person in question is a no-nonsense sexpot; but your gut tells you otherwise, doesn’t it?
Having a fling with a MySpace/Facebook profile (or a Craigslist “Casual Encounter” listing) says a lot about a person. Whether they’re morbidly awkward in typical social settings or sex-obsessed freaks it’s quite obvious that they’re willing to risk it all in hopes of getting off. Admirable, but questionable.
I’m a reasonable guy who has unreasonable fantasies from time to time – who doesn’t? But to hedge your bets on a pixelated photo and a too-good-to-be-true sexplination from some random profile to get your kicks is probably not the safest thing to do. The proposition may sound intriguing, but how many attribute-boasting sex gods are flat-out lying? Still, I can understand the intrigue if you’re adventurous but publicly afraid to expound on your fetish consisting of nipple-clamps and spankings.
At the end of the day, satisfying your libido with a random probably isn’t the safest idea in the world. Take the time to meet somebody – at the very least enough time to see if they have any STDs – then bust out the warming lubricant, handcuffs, vibrating egg, leather body suits…
