In life, there are choices and sometimes we don’t make the right ones. Particularly when they pertain to sex. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be having sex. In fact, you should have tons of sex if you want to, it’s your body and your choice. Ah yes, that nasty ‘choice’ thing again. We’ve all been there and we’ve all had the awkward encounters afterward. Although sex is fantastic and they may be hot as hell, there are just some people you simply should NOT sleep with.
I can’t possibly be the only one who crushed on Dr. Ross Geller, and don’t get me started on Professor Indiana Jones. We are drawn to power and intelligence, two qualities your professors likely possess. There are better ways to get an A that won’t ultimately lead to awkwardness and heartbreak. Keep this relationship purely… pure.
- Your Boss
You know you shouldn’t. You know you shouldn’t and yet you’re tempted to because that shit sounds incredibly erotic. Who doesn’t want the 50 shades experience? Getting called into the boss’s office, sweet nothings in the break room. It’s best not to dwell on as some fantasies are best left to the imagination. Nothing good can come of it, you know this.
I don’t care if they say they’re over it, the minute that condom wrapper opens, you have lost a friend or at least made a very tense situation. Whether it’s bro code or girl code, there is a certain way to live your life that includes not sleeping with your friend’s ex.
- Your Ex
You tried it and broke up for a reason. There may be a way to rekindle that flame if you’re both willing but it starts with a conversation, not the shedding of clothes. After the talk, all bets are off, have at it; but going straight to the fun part will only make a mess of the situation.
Adam Levine, you are one fine looking man but you don’t give the best advice. One More Night says it perfectly; “I’ll be waking up in the morning, probably hating myself. And I’ll be waking up, feeling satisfied but guilty as hell.” The momentary pleasure is by far not worth how you’ll feel in the morning. It’s kind of like going out the night before an 8 a.m. and then skipping it. Just don’t do it.
- Your Neighbor
You’re having a fun night, see your neighbor and next thing you know you’re outside their bedroom door. No ‘floorcest!’ I repeat, this is a bad idea. For the rest of the year you will see them when you’re not only at your best, but your worst. You live there, and so do they. You’ll have to see them flirting with others and stumbling into their room with another hook up. It’s not a good idea. Take a second, think and reconsider. Go back to your room, its right down the hall anyway.
The guidelines can blur and situations change, but as a general rule, if you’re hesitant or it seems like a bad idea, it probably is. Have fun, experience your youth, but be safe and smart doing it. Experience love, lust and everything in between but stray from those who will bring you only heartbreak and awkward encounters.
