The sexual revolution which took place in the 1960’s and 70’s opened the door to what is known in modern times as causal sex. Although it’s not an accepted lifestyle for most religions, it doesn’t stop the trend from becoming more popular. Casual sex is defined as having intercourse with one or multiple partners without emotional attachment. The purpose is purely based on physical satisfaction or indulgence.
Glamour Magazine recently ran a survey consisting of 2000 women and their casual sex experiences. Ranging from ages 18 to 64, 82% confessed to having at least one such experience. Only 19% of those regret that it happened and most of the women found their partners at familiar places.
According to a study done regarding Spring Break in Florida and 680 college students from Canada who went there, it was concluded that the event is prone to set a comfortable setting for casual sex. The students all agreed that they felt much more at ease in taking part in sexual activities there rather than at home.
Films and television shows openly entertain the lifestyle of non-romantic sexual encounters while the western world is embracing the trend. Currently most of the studies done on this topic make use of college students, seeing as most of these activities tend to take place around campus. Numerous experts blame the casual sex movement for puberty being reached much earlier and the increase of sexual activity in teens.
Due to its late development, religions are vague about the guidelines and don’t really give clear views on the subject. Very few religions like Wicca promote a healthy sex life without concern about marriage or romantic relationships. In general most religions either condemn or frown upon such behavior.
Not all countries have given into the revolution, and rules surrounding it mainly depend on religion and culture. Even though a lot of people still choose to refrain from having causal sex, there is no denying the influence it has on the world today. Here is the list of the top 10 cities in the world that have the most casual sex.
10. Berlin, Germany
With legalized prostitution, readily available, Berlin ranks no. 10 on the list. One would think their love of discipline would have some effect on their promiscuous nature, yet the city is known for promoting some of the most free-thinking sexual fetishes. Pornography is an open market and apparently film makers strive to push the limits. Many tourists make their way to this capital simply because there is no discrimination of sexual preference, hence the perfect setting for casual sex.
1989 was the inception of their ever-exotic annual Love Parade. This event allows locals and tourists to exhibit their sexual tendencies out in the open. The city became a tourist spot year round merely because of that event. It also increased the rate of sexual activity between foreigners and locals. Unfortunately, there will be no more Love Parades in coming years, after the tragedy that cost the lives of 21 people back in 2010. Nevertheless, Berlin remains a happy city with its openness to LGBT communities.
