Can Casual Sex Lead To Long Term?

I’ve had many friends (and likely been there myself) where in a casual sex situation, one of the two people involved are hoping to get a little more out of it than sexual satisfaction. Most of the time, the ‘little more’ that’s desired is in the form of a romantic relationship.

I think this is dangerous territory. However, researchers have recently published a study that shows casual sex can lead to just as satisfying a relationship as those relationships that form out of more ‘innocent’ roots.

I wrote a blog on this for Kinsey Confidential that you can check out here.

I don’t know about this…I’m not sure I agree. I think that the only way this could happen is if both people happen to stay on the same page through the whole transition. To me, the chances of that happening are minuscule. Then again, I’m a realist. To all you hopeful romantics out there….one research study says you can do it!
