Sex and the city rules for dating

21 May

We now have the freedom to say yes, but not to say no.

Rachel explains, “It's likely that the three date rule was invented to put guidelines around appropriate female sexual behaviour; have sex on the first date, you're a slut. “What's interesting is that it doesn't just tell us when is too early to have sex.

Others have admitted that they simply didn’t know how to express the fact that they weren’t emotionally ready.

Looming large in my mind to this day is the episode where Carrie starts dating Aidan.

That’s why the issue remains this big, hulking, stifling sexual elephant.

But sometimes, with the right friends, in the right setting (with the right amount of wine), women will tentatively talk about it.

“I knew he wanted to, so I just did it.” “I felt like I’d want to at some point…

so I thought I might as well do it now.” “I didn’t want him to lose interest.” “I didn’t want him to think I was a tease/frigid.” These are just some of the reasons single women I know have given for having sex before they really wanted to.
