Social psychologist Justin Lehmiller, a faculty affiliate of The Kinsey Institute, has built a career researching casual sex, sexual fantasy, and sexual health all of which he tackles on his blog, Sex and Psychology. Here, he explores the research surrounding casual sex—its emotional stakes, the orgasm gapand the viability of friends with benefits. Compared to past generations, young adults today definitely have more casual sex. While online dating and hookup apps are being used more and more, the truth is most people are still meeting each other in person. So despite all we hear about people meeting their sex and relationship partners online, the vast majority of adults have never even tried it. Meeting someone online poses some unique challenges.
How we see the world shapes who we choose to be — and sharing compelling experiences can frame the way we treat each other, for the better. This is a powerful perspective.
In the early s, the focus took a feminist turn against anti-pornography feminists. Now more mainstream, the conversations revolve around empowering women to have as much sex as they want, without shame. Many of us grew up on TV shows, movies, and books that use promiscuity and independence synonymously. With movements to reclaim the words slut and ho and the numerous dating apps that enable us to have casual encounters with ease, it would seem casual sex is everywhere.

Less invested, less giving. Take your average porn video easily accessible online. The fashion industry seems to struggle conceiving different sizes for the female body. Hollywood, more than 70 to 80 percent of the timeonly conceives of one race of women.
Mainstream porn seems to suggest women have only one type of sex. Women are unique in our tastes, including our sexual tastes. Our bodies and pleasure points are individual and different. Every single woman I talk to says some variant of the same thing: Men prioritize their pleasure by treating women like dolls or props to get off from.
I have so much more time to myself. I feel that my body and my desires matter in a real way, since I only have sex with partners who I know are committed to my pleasure. Priya-Alika Elias is a lawyer and writer who lives in Delhi, India.
