Awkward Sex Questions, Answered
According to a survey of 568 American women, a third reported having sex on the first date with someone they met online, while 27% had oral sex.
“The reality is, if you have a good connection with someone, the rules mostly go out the window,” says relationship guru Andrea Syrtash, co-author of It’s Okay to Sleep with Him on the First Date—and Every Other Rule of Dating, Debunked. “That doesn’t mean you don’t have some strategies or follow social cues, but it means you follow your gut and your heart more than arbitrary rules.”
And don’t be so worried about what your date may think. Syrtash says of her co-author, Jeff Wilser: “Never in the history of man has he heard a guy say that he’s met a wonderful, attractive, sweet, smart, funny woman, but he can’t call her again because she got naked too soon.”
“Men don’t think like this,” she says. “Either they’re into a woman or they aren’t. The reality is, if a woman sleeps with a man and he doesn’t call her again, he never saw long-term potential with her.”
