Casual sex can be tricky as you never know where will it lead to and how it will end between two people. Sometimes, one person can catch feelings, and others might feel deserted, so here are a few tips to follow before starting a casual relationship.
Define your existing relationship
Does the person you are getting involved with has emotional baggage? Is the person already in love with someone, will it affect you in the future if you fall in love with each other Likewise, there are many questions you should care about before starting. So sit down and talk clearly about where does your current relationship sit.
Snuggling or cuddling
There is nothing wrong with cuddling or snuggling after sex, but it can be a problem after having to do 'casual' sex. Cuddling releases oxytocin, a bonding hormone that might make you lovingly like each other. So agree to it consensually.
Consent is a must
Did you take consent from the other before getting sexually involved or not is very important. Do not push yourself on them just because you think they gave a sign for casual sex. It should be pre-decided before entering as 'friends with benefits'.
When the end comes
Evaluate the potential outcomes. Will it be awkward when it ends. Will you try avoiding each other after it ends? Get it all evident in the head. Some can go back to being friends after being sex buddies; some cannot. So get it all evaluated.
Protection is a must
Nothing ruins a good sex life when it comes to the worry of pregnancy or STI's. So always be super safe and talk it out with your partner too.
