Should You Have Sex On the First Date? A Choose Your Own Adventure Chart!

It’s the first date! Should you have sex?

Lots of different factors could go into this decision – your desires, your date’s desires, expectations of commitment, fears of getting rejected or fetishized, and more. It can all make the question of whether or not to have sex pretty stressful or confusing.

This flow chart can help ease some of that stress. Instead of listening to society’s usual ideas of how your sex life “should be,” try following these suggestions.

They can help you reach a decision about sex on the first date that’s best for you and your date. And we hope it this gives you less stress and more fun!

With Love,
