The term ‘casual dating’ refers to the act of having sex with strangers. However, having sex with strangers isn’t without its risks. You can never be sure that the people you’re sleeping with are in good health and disease-free.
If you are interested in taking up casual dating and want to spice up your sex life, then you need to take steps to protect yourself. Taking steps to protect yourself will prevent you from contracting sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
Here is how you can find a casual dating partner (and keep yourself safe).
The first thing that you need to do if you want to safely find a casual dating partner, is find a reliable hookup site. Hookup sites are sites used exclusively by singles looking for sex. You usually don’t have to pay to sign up for them, and they have location filters, meaning you can search for people in your area. Finding adult hookup sites shouldn’t be difficult, since they are everywhere. Try to find a site that requires identity verification, if possible. If a site asks users to send copies of their passports or driving licenses during registration, then it means that anybody you talk to will be a genuine person, and not somebody catfishing somebody else. If you are on a budget, then avoid using hookup sites that have paywalls in place, limiting the number of matches you can make in a day.
When you are having sex with a stranger, you need to wear protection. It doesn’t matter if the person that you are meeting has a certificate proving they are clean and have no infections, you still need to wear protection. Wearing protection can stop you from picking up and transmitting diseases and infections and can also prevent any unwanted pregnancies from occurring. Unwanted pregnancies can be ruinous to a person’s life, especially if they live in a state or country where abortion is outlawed. If in doubt, double up. After all, contraceptives aren’t always effective.
Verify anybody’s identity before meeting them. Verifying a person’s identity is relatively easy. All you need to do is video chat with them or get them to send you a photograph of themselves. The idea behind verification is to make sure that you do not end up talking to somebody who’s trying to catfish you. Sometimes, such individuals are able to slip through hookup site security barriers, like required verification. Verifying your date’s identity will make it a lot more comfortable for you to meet them and ensure that you aren’t being fooled around with or scammed.
Always meet new dates in public places first. Meeting them in a public place for the first time will help you to ensure that they are who they say they are. An added bonus of meeting a stranger in a public place for the first time is that you will both be caught on CCTV together, so if they try anything, it will be easy for the police to catch them. Sit down with them in a bar or restaurant before going back to bed, just so you can be sure they aren’t weird and don’t have any quirks that make you nervous.
Rather than going to your house (or their house) go to a hotel. If the person you are meeting has bad intentions, they are less likely to do anything to hurt you or scare you inside a hotel. In a hotel, there will be security, other guests, and lots of cameras. If they did do anything, then they would be caught very quickly. The huge number of other people present and the presence of cameras should act as a deterrent to them. Try to pick a hotel that’s in a built-up area, and that is very busy.
When it comes to meeting strangers for casual sex, you always need to trust your instincts. If a person doesn’t feel right, then they probably aren’t. Trusting your instincts will help to ensure that you don’t get hurt. The human body is very good at telling when somebody wants to harm it. However, don’t rely on instincts alone. Make sure that you take up the other advice mentioned in this post so far, too. If you do not then you could end up having sex with somebody who is either lying about their identity, wants to hurt you, or isn’t clean.
Casual sex can be safe, as long as you take steps to protect yourself. If you are careless then you are probably going to have a rough time. Take the advice outlined in this post if you want safer casual encounters.
