 Study: Casual sex harmful to women
The study found that 18 percent of females and 3 percent of males thought their most recent casual sex experience was "the beginning of a romance," and this disparity, the authors said, could be the reason for the difference in depressive symptoms.
Seven percent of the males in the sample said their recent casual sex experience was "experimentation," while 14 percent of females described it as such.
Herbenick said she prefers to use the term "uncommitted sex" rather than casual sex to describe the encounters in the study because it better describes the type of relationship people are engaged in.

A casual relationship may be part time, or for a limited time, and may be monogamous or otherwise, and the term encompasses strong enduring friendships between people who enjoy each other's closeness but do not seek marriage for some reason, through to relationships purely entered into for sexual purposes.
Motives for casual relationships vary, and should be distinguished from casual sex in which no relationship is intended.
Popularized in recent years by the US sitcom Sex and the City, this sort of relationship is commonly portrayed as a relatively new phenomenon, but it is not clear as to whether this novelty applied to the term "friends with benefits" was actually predated by similar yet more secretive arrangements and phrases.

A realistic approach to sexuality isn't necessarily abstinence, as the various conservative movements would have it, but rather the recognition that liberty and license aren't the same thing and that sex is important enough not to be trivialized.
What sentient people remember as central when they look back on high school and college are not the casual sexual encounters they had but the emotional experiences: the glow in learning that a romantic interest shared their feelings, the giddy delight of falling in love, the heartache of breaking up.
