In search of some casual sex...

By now it’s been common place for many people to log into the web in search of romance. The sites that cater for such desires are ubiquitous and are forever growing at a rapid rate. But what about those of us who just want to log on and catch us some heat in the pants action?

Before re publishing one letter we came across on the sydney morning herald, we’d like to draw attention to a couple of facts (that the writer, a young female reader, who’s letter the sydney morning herald came across and published) points out and what this possibly could mean for the sexes:

smh.com.au: This year I discovered that there are actually a lot websites on which people advertise for casual sex. The advertisers and respondents are probably 50 per cent gay men (or men looking to lose their gay virginity/looking to experiment), 49 per cent straight men looking for women, and 1 per cent women looking for men.

I am in that 1 per cent. And when I realised how easy it was I regretted not getting into this sooner.

Not regretting getting on this sooner because it’s understood that most males are horny lap dogs looking to get their rocks off and that it’s a female’s hunting ground? Not regretted publishing this sooner because she could abound for sex without the qualifier of being perceived as a ‘slut,’ at some local bar, where as men in this department are perceived as ‘players?’ Or regretting getting on this sooner as it is understood all that defines a female and her desirability is her looks and stasis as that of an available female, where as a man has to woo, cajole and reaffirm his masculinity which often involves a subtle (and sometimes overt) reinforcement of what makes him socially relevant- fat income, title, status and toys to seduce a woman with? Or maybe none of the above?

Either way, have a read of the letter republished in whole, as it certainly piqued this author’s curiosity as to what constitutes the dynamics of sexuality in a dynamic world of dating. And while you are reading this, ask yourself, if Jane, let’s call her Jane, was your sister, daughter how you would feel about her open demand for sex, and how your feelings about Jane would change if Jane were John instead.

Is getting some nooky as easy as it seems? Or is it a simply a matter which sex you are? You be the judge….

The letter as it appeared:

Your last post about Grindr for straight people really sparked my interest.

I don’t know if you’ve already posted on this topic as I only started following you recently (great work by the way) but I would like to know what other women (or men) out there think about women like me who look for just casual sex online.

This year I discovered that there are actually a lot websites on which people advertise for casual sex. The advertisers and respondents are probably 50 per cent gay men (or men looking to lose their gay virginity/looking to experiment), 49 per cent straight men looking for women, and 1 per cent women looking for men.

I am in that 1 per cent. And when I realised how easy it was I regretted not getting into this sooner.

I am in my 20s, decent looking, own my own home, stable income, have a postgraduate qualification, well rounded interests, have lots of friends and go out socially a few times
