Now more than ever, casual sex is on everybody’s lips. People are more opened now than they used to be to one night stands where emotional bonding is unnecessary and where the physical pleasure is the main point. In the age of social medias like Facebook, it is getting easier to meet new people. Moreover, applications like Tinder make it more simple for strangers who are looking for a hookup, no strings attached. Who have never had fantasies of having sex with someone for fun, without looking for a serious relationship? Well, although hookup culture is more common than before, men and women still tend to have different opinions about it. Stereo-typically, it is believed that women are more incline to have sex when emotions are involved. On the other hand, men seem to care more about the physical act, no matter if feelings are part of the game. Is this really true though or are we just being blinded by these cliches? That raises a question : what are men and women’s opinions about casual sex?

After all, it seems like the stereotypes might not be totally wrong. Indeed, it is said that women are most likely going to refuse the thought of casual sex and tend to regret afterwards if they actually do it. Is this really because no emotions were involved though? Not necessarily. Some may simply feel like they have been too easy and then feel guilty. Overall, their motivations to be unwilling are mostly related to their self-esteem and their pride more than the absence of a love story. Also, if they do turn down an invitation, most of them won’t feel bad about it and will just move on.
What about men? Most of these facts are about women; men seem to be the opposite. They seem more inclined to the idea of casual sex and actually, if they do end up saying no to an invitation, they are more likely going to regret declining it. One interesting thing is that most men will regret having a hookup with a girl if they have to face her again. They tend to prefer having a one-night stand than having further contacts with the partner. Also, if the two of them end up having casual sex on a regular basis, men tend to get scared and to put a stop to the relationship if the woman starts showing some attachment signs.
That said, these are just tendencies. There are always exceptions. Also, let’s keep in mind that even if, by example, women are more likely going to say no to hookups compared to men, it doesn’t mean that majority of them will. Sex, through marriage, is a natural pleasure enjoyed by both sides and it doesn’t have to involve emotions to be enjoyed. Thanks to the new generations’ mentality, this is more accepted than it has been ever.
Overall, are women and men thinking the same about casual sex? It doesn’t seem to be the case. Is this really surprising though? After all, men are from mars and women are from venus.
