You may want to explore same sex relationships either in fantasy or real life.
Some who are into BDSM/kink, swinging etc organize general meet ups (sometimes called munches) where you can find out more before you try anything. Looking out for yourself One of the ways no-strings relationships are presented to women be they bi, straight or lesbian is they are inherently dangerous.
Stern warnings are given that a one night stand could easily end in an STI or being harmed by your partner.
Some might argue it’s right to highlight such possibilities, others that they’re used to put people off having alternative sexual experiences.
When you meet someone be very clear what you would like to do, where your boundaries are and what is not ok.
Not all will appeal, but hopefully this will give you a better idea about what you might try.
Thinking through what ‘sex’ means can help you identify what you do/don’t want to experience. It could mean masturbation alone or with a partner. It could involve exploring fantasy/role play, fetish, BDSM, phone or text sex with someone else, writing a diary or blog, or filming/photographing yourself (which you may want to keep private or share).
If you are having sex with multiple partners it makes sense to think about safer sex and use condoms and dams (even if you are using other forms of contraception).
I’m 23 and have just ended a six month relationship. I’ve just been promoted at work to a post where there’s a lot of travel.
All of this has made me realise I do want a physical relationship but with no strings. In order to help you think about what possibilities are open to you I’ve listed a number of questions for you to reflect on.
