Having sex with a complete stranger can be exciting. It can also be scary, dangerous, humorous, arousing, intoxicating and deadly. Let’s face it; you don’t know a thing about the other person, which means you don’t know what secrets they may be hiding or what may be growing in their Southern Hemisphere.
In the year 2011 I shouldn’t have to say to protect yourself, but the reality is I do have to say it. Let me clarify what I mean by, “Protect yourself.” I mean wear a condom. Throw on a raincoat. Cover your stump before you hump. Don’t be silly, protect your Willie. Don’t be a fool, vulcanize your tool. Even if she’s eager, protect her beaver. Get the picture? In case you still don’t, let me say it like this: Condomize before you womanize.
This one is obviously directed more at the guy, but the woman needs to make sure that her knight suits up in full armor before going into battle. Let’s face it, if you’re having sex with a complete stranger, chances are better than 50/50 that both of you may have more to share with the other than just witty conversation.
Also, it may be a good idea to ask if there are any health problems the other needs to be aware of. I can imagine little worse that getting into it, only to find out that she has a latex allergy. You may think that it’s your manly prowess that’s taking her breath away, when in reality it’s your choice of wrapping paper.
The location of your tryst is of key importance. Taking the other person back to your place is a huge don’t. Why? Do you seriously want that person knowing where you live? Do you want this random conquest knocking on your door a week from Tuesday as you’re sitting down to dinner with friends or family? Doubtful.
Vaguery is a huge, “Do”. Think about it, if you’re going to have sex with a stranger, do you really want them knowing where you work? If the sex was incredible and you decide you want to hook up again, then maybe you can come clean, but not right up front. I imagine it would be very awkward to have the receptionist call and say you have a visitor in the lobby, only to find that person standing there asking where you want to go for lunch.
Believe it or not, Where you live plays a huge part in how you handle having sex with a stranger. If you live in a place like Chicago, New York or LA you may be OK asking fewer questions about family, but if you reside in places such as Arkansas, Alabama or Mississippi (places where family tree’s tend to go straight up and not fork as much), it may be worth a couple extra questions about family.
If you both have an Uncle Milt or Aunt Alice, you may want to hold off until further questioning has been completed. I was told the true story of a girl who hooked up with a stranger, only to arrive at Thanksgiving dinner months later where she was introduced to her cousin. My guess is it was a foot race to see who could get to the bathroom first. Also, I bet the horrified looks on their face made for some pretty interesting holiday conversation.
If you’re absolutely going to have sex with a stranger, understand what’s cool and what’s not. Guys, some girls don’t mind if you use the back door, but they don’t like it when you use it without asking. Sex with a stranger can be exciting and adventurous, but do it right. Use some common sense and if something doesn’t seem kosher, it probably isn’t.
Finally, (and this is really the most important one of all) DO see your doctor after sex with a stranger—whether or not the guy wore a glove. I can’t reiterate enough wearing a condom. Even if you somehow won at Russian roulette and didn’t catch some super STD, no guy wants to get that phone call 15 years down the road that starts with, “Hi. XXXXX? My name is XXXXX and I’m your daughter.”
