Truth be told, as a red-blooded male, I am always down to have sex on the first date even if I find my date annoying and unattractive. I know, I know…I realize it makes me a bit of a dog but the final decision is always left up to her and my answer is always, yes.
Back in the day, having sex on the first date (mostly for girls) was a social faux pas. But times they are a changin’ according to a recent survey released by the dating site, OkCupid.
Here is one glaring takeaway from this survey that every guy should know that will make you feel a little better about that first date. In fact, she is more likely to be DTF than you think.
A whopping 46% of OkCupid users said they would have sex on the first date. That’s nearly 50% of female and male respondents.
The numbers don’t lie and point to a different overall attitude about how our society views casual sex. In fact, if you have no plans on seeing that person again or at least not planning solid plans to do so—it’s casual sex. Well, at least in the moment.
The numbers point to a more relaxed and honest view to sex rather then intercourse becoming the-BE-ALL-END-ALL. It might have taken at least 50 years, but perhaps, we are finally past the unfair stigma attached to sex and dating.
This is not to say that sex doesn’t matter. I remember hooking up on a first date and entering into a long-term relationship with a girl when we were both in our early twenties. And maybe that is what has evolved. Instead of treating sex like it’s all that matters, it becomes just part of the dating world and before a commitment is yet to be made.
Perhaps, the biggest reason for this shift in how we weigh the cost of sexual intercourse while dating is best measured and changed by the level of honesty and dare I say it, the feminist movement that woman can enjoy sex without commitments as well—which is fine with me.
What do you think of casual sex being embraced in today’s dating world. Is it for real or just complete bullshit?
