What are your thoughts on casual sex more generally, the role it has played in your life, and/or its role in society? What would you like to see changed in that regard? i engage in casual sex often. in past relationships i’ve ventured into swinging (craigslist hookups, some of my ex male partners are bi so often MMF 3somes) and going to sex clubs.
as a sexual abuse survivor i have a somewhat defiant need to “own” my sexuality. it was used against me for so long and now i demand to own it, enjoy & explore it. perhaps i’m hyper sexual? but i prefer that over being frigid.
i’d like to see sexuality become as much of a non-issue as eating or breathing…just a natural human need. as a woman i’d like to see less disparity between social judgment of mens vs womens sexual behavior.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? i think it is a great outlet for people like me, it’s somewhat therapeutic to share these things anonymously. i also am very glad that research like this is being done.
