When it comes to sex, everyone is guilty of letting their lust do the thinking on occasion. I’ve had a few male friends admit to me they’ve slept with a girl simply because she was hot. Is it wrong to sleep with someone you don’t like because they’re hot?

Firstly, different people have different ideas on the qualifications for sex. That is when it’s ok to have sex with someone. That makes it impossible for us to really judge when it’s right or wrong between two people to have sex.

Some people want to wait to share their intimate moments with someone they feel deeply about. Others will have a set number of dates or time together before they’ll have sex with someone. And of course, there are those of us who just want a good connection to get it on.

That being said, there are definitely times when we might want to have sex without really wanting to have sex. We give reasons such as “it’s been a really long time” or “they’re just so hot”. It brings up an interesting topic of whether it’s right to sleep with someone you’re not really into, just because they’re super attractive.

Is it wrong?

Wrong is the wrong word. If it’s between two consenting adults, then no, it’s not wrong. Will it be amazing, mind blowing sex? Probably not, as the best sex happens when you’re together with someone who you have a great connection with. Will you feel regret afterwards? Possibly, depending on your personality.

If you’re in a situation where you are thinking about having sex with someone, but you’re grasping at reasons to justify it, relax. It’s ok to sleep with someone based on their physical looks alone.

Sex doesn’t equal long term relationships. You can be attracted to someone physically without being interested in them in other ways. The important thing to do in this situation is to be open and honest about what you want from them.

Tell them that you are attracted to them, but you’re not looking for a relationship. That you just want something physical with them. Whatever you do, have this talk with them before you have sex, and not afterwards. Telling them afterwards is a dick move to make.
