We Need To Rethink Casual Sex

By host - mischa.carter
Social psychologist and sex researcher Terri Conley thinks it's high time we stop feeling guilty about enjoying casual sex—no matter what society says. In this entertaining talk, Conley interrogates three common myths about sexuality and gender and suggests a few new, guilt-free ways to think about our sex lives.https://www.ted.com/talks/terri_conley_we_need_to_rethink_casual_sex?utm_campaign=social&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_content=talk&utm_term=humanities&fbclid=IwAR3SdXX2xcBXUWir1_ZTsEgNzt3jjBkU4MicU3u8QstZxMBgy3wsbfcXV5g

I agree that we need to rethink casual sex. But we should not push the idea that it is for everyone.

Women sometimes just want casual sex as well. It's okay and it's okay if we had more than 3 sex partners in our lives and didn't marry our high school sweetheart. Don't let anyone ever judge you for that. They don't know the whole story. Take the pill or have a spiral or whatever and just use condoms! Always carry one or two with you because why not? I rather be save all the time than risking a pregnancy or an STD. Sex is fun! It's not spiritual for a lot of people and I think its weird and kind of gross to bring Jesus or God into this conversation. He doesn't care if you save yourself. face with tears of joy face with tears of joy

Maybe all that is true, but casual, non-monogamous sex isn't for everyone either. Live and let live.

True, but is that because of the ingrained social stigmas or a free choice?

It could be, or it could also be because some people just aren't interested in it. Monogamy came about for several reasons in society, and even in the 70+% of places around the world that allow polygamy, many choose monogamy anyway. So if that were the only reason why people were monogamous, most places around the world would have much lower levels of monogamy.

Exactly, we have to stop pushing this idea that casual sex is for everyone.

Monogamy exists to own the products of the womb. It is only demanded of women, men are permitted even encouraged to"sow wild oats". This tells you exactly why it exists, to control women.

Maybe for some people, but all monogamous people don't want to"own" women or their children. I know plenty of monogamous couples that neither have nor want children, and both partners are equal in the relationship.
My point is there is no one-size-fits-all lifestyle for anyone. And though much smaller in number, there are a few polygynous societies in the world (where women have multiple husbands), or at least that's part of what I learned in the 7 years I spent in college and grad school.
