OMG: The idea of casual sex is something very normal these days. While I have no problem with how other people lead their lives, I think it's important that we also respect the people that don't practice casual sex.

"Slut shaming" is bad, but so is virgin shaming.

  1. Hmm being a 24 year old guy in a faculty of Bros, and being a virgin, I can't say I've heard many people shame others for being virgins. Don't let it get you down fellow virgin/s. If you aren't ready don't worry about it. Stand up for yourself if possible and avoid the jerks if you can. Don't worry, University life doesn't last forever.

  3. I agree. I hear some women calling other women prudes. I think it's just as bad as calling someone a slut. Men can also shame other men for being sexually inexperienced. Someone's sexual experience is personal and nothing to be ashamed of.

  4. Remember asexuality is a sexual orientation too!

    1. Well, it's not exactly a sexual orientation, but it is good of you to bring up asexuality! Aces' identies are often erased.

      You can think of both sexuality and romantic attraction as spectra. Someone can be sexually attracted to others but not really interested in a close, intimate relationship, while others can be romantic but asexual. Whether or not they are attracted to a single gender or multiple genders is their sexual orientation.

      So for instance, I have two friends who are both asexual, romantic, heterosexual men. You could just as well have a sexual, aromantic, homosexual woman. Etc.

    5. WTF is a 'sjw?' Is that like some kind of St. Jerome's thing?

      Still don't really understand what 4b said that annoyed you, 4e. Perhaps you could be more specific?

  5. I had friends offer to pay for a prostitute when I was 15... to get "experience" so I don't "let my gf down". What a bunch of bs. I'm not going to have sex with someone who I'm not emotionally involved with - casual sex may seem mainstream but heck, I'm not going to touch that with a 10 foot pole if I ever intend on maintaining commitment in my life.

    2. There are much better reasons than that to pay for a prostitute... you made the right call.

    3. What the fuck. I don't even think most sex workers would agree to serve an underage client. That's completely fucked.

      Ahh, that compulsory sexuality and toxic masculinity :|

  6. Not sure what type of response I"ll get for saying this, but my negative view towards casual sex is only because of the greater risk of STDs being spread. As an example, there was an outbreak of syphillis not too long ago that medical professionals said was likely fired by Tinder and other social media. The other concern of mine is unwanted pregnancies. There are many stressful decisions to be made if it occurs since the parents never planned to stay together, and it sucks if the child has to be raised in an unstable home. Bottom line, use protection!! Even double it up with another appropriate form (eg condom + pill) if needed. It's better to be safe than sorry.

    1. This. I haven't got a problem with casual sex, but if you're gonna go down that route, get educated about keeping yourself safe, first.

    2. Ok. But destigmatizing sex goes a long way towards people being proactive about sexual health… like using protection and getting STI’s treated.
