[PORTABLE] Free Dating Sites In America

1. You feel like shit the next day.
This goes without saying, but the consequences of casual sex are far-reaching for the body and mind, says Personal. “The human body is an amazing machine that is designed to lay down roots and create a home for our future children, so when it is interrupted by illness or a short-term relationship, it sometimes takes a while to fully recover,” says. “Your body will take a few weeks to fully process all of the casual sex you’ve had without proper nutrition.” In fact, the National Institute of Sexual Health says that one encounter may mean your body doesn’t get the nutrients it needs.
Sexologist Dr David Nierenberg says stress is a big reason why people notice their sex lives are going off the rails. “Imagine you are kissing someone and are experiencing pressure to do it in an entirely new way — that’s our biological response to stress, and it’s that stress that affects your bodies ability to perform well,” he says. It’s also why people might notice an absence of their natural lubrication or perhaps the odd drying out of their vaginal canal or sensitivity to touch in the vagina. While the consequences can vary from extreme to mild, it’s important to know the risk factors that may make your sex life go down the drain.
2. You get stuck with recurring thrush.
While fungal infections like it are not considered STDs, they’re a common side effect of casual sex, says Dr David Nierenberg. “People have no idea of the frequency of thrush because the infection can show up 24 hours, 48 hours, or a week after you have sex,” he says. “You must be extra diligent about washing your genitals, like douching with a condom, and be responsible for following up if there is a reaction.” Thrush itself, also known as candida, affects an estimated ten percent of the world’s population, with women more likely than men to be affected by the infection. And an often-neglected part of that anatomy? Your mouth. “It is one of the primary places thrush is passed to and can be passed from,” says Dr Nierenberg. He explains that it happens when fungus grows in someone’s mouth and gets carried to a person’s genitals during oral sex.
3. You’re not making a babies.
“You can get STDs, and in the case of HIV, contracting it can be avoided with safe sex,” says OBGYN and STI expert Dr Lisa

But even though today’s hookups aren’t quite as dangerous as they were in the past, they are still much less safe than the sex Americans are having with their partners. In 1976, 94 percent of sexually active teens and young adults ages 15 to 24 reported using contraception when having sex, according to the Guttmacher Institute. By the time they were 30, that number was down to 56 percent. Today, it’s even lower, with only 55 percent of sexually active teens and young adults getting contraception before the age of 24, according to the Guttmacher Institute’s 2015 report, “Family Planning Fact Book 2015.” Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that one in five sexually active women and one in six sexually active men in the U.S. have an STI.
If casual sex is so dangerous, why is it so popular?
There are a number of reasons Americans are giving up on long-term committed relationships with the naked eye. The biggest of them all is that the rise of technology has made sex much less personal — it has happened in the bedroom, bathroom, living room and car.
The picture becomes even murkier when you consider how much pressure to get laid the rise of hookup culture has put on young people. With the rise of social media, your social life isn’t something you’re presented with as an option: It’s something that is forced upon you as one of the limitations of your time. That’s a problem when your whole life is seen through the lens of apps that put people in a single category — relationship — and therefore makes it difficult to resist the urge to click “come here” when you’re at the end of a long day of school.
So does that mean you shouldn’t hook up, and if so, which apps should you use?
