Casual flings and hook ups are just fine (and in some cases, a hell of a lot more than fine), but it’s hard to compete with being intimate someone you genuinely care about. Here are just a few of the benefits.
What can be incredibly uncomfortable with a stranger is now a symbol of sweet intimacy when you’re with someone you love.
When you’re with someone who doesn’t know your body, it’s a complete toss-up as to how things will go. It can be hard to tell a near stranger exactly what you want, or you could find out you two just don’t mesh well. But when you’re in a relationship with someone who knows your body, you’re much more likely to have a fantastic time.
Hell, you don’t even need to try something new. Screwing so hard your skin slaps together and makes that ridiculous fart noise? Mood killer with a stranger. In a relationship? A quick laugh and you’re right back to it.
You don’t need to look like a model or smell like a rose with someone you’ve been with for a while. Just came back a sweaty, stinky mess from the gym? He’s still ready if you are.
Sometimes it’s hard to ask someone you don’t know that well for something you really want (no woman wants to explain why they have a prince costume in their closet). Not so when you’re in a long term relationship. Let your freak flag fly!
