Casual Sex: Wham, Bam, Thank You

Sex is no longer seen as something that a man takes from a woman, but as an activity between two consenting individuals

The act of sex is no longer the sacred act of lovemaking as it used to be. Times have changed. The new generation views sex like going to the movies, having a fancy Sunday brunch. In earlier times, sex was viewed as a sacred ritual between a man and his wife, usually to produce an offspring as ‘proof of their love’. With the increasing popularity of birth control and widely available information about sex on the internet, the myth that sex is only done for reproduction is undergoing a slow fade. Sex is now gaining more recognition for being an act of pleasure and just pleasure. It is no longer the ultimate climax of every love story or a life-changing act. Society might try to shame the new approach, but has also reluctantly accepted it.

The acceptance of this change has transformed the act itself, and has made casual sex easier to come by than before. As girls have gotten over the myth that their honour lies between their legs, they no longer view the advances from boys as a threat but as an option to consider. Sex is no longer seen as something that a man takes from a woman, but as an activity between two consenting individuals. Thus, it takes away the objectification of a woman who is a willing participant. Since the act is shamed less, the women are in position to put forward their sexual desires.
