I’m 24 and finally had a one-night stand. I didn’t bother leaving my number or any contact information (or even my name) in the morning for fear of coming off as clingy or naïve.

If you’re just looking to prevent pregnancy, then you’ll be happy to know that withdrawal method (pulling out) is a potentially viable alternative if other contraceptives don’t seem to be ideal for you.

It could be the best and dirtiest sex anyone has ever had, but it doesn’t matter: It’s the same as it was last time.
