    I was super interested when you told me you were to write a post on transactional dating. In theory, you’re completely right. In reality, it’s not much different from what men do (not all, but a lot do). I think while you’re right, I don’t know if I personally could do it. I just feel guilty, and while I definitely have a checklist of qualities and traits that matter to me, I feel weird about using sex to get something out of a situation. Interesting read Laura xx

      Thank you Melina! From my experience, I’ve had sex with guys who weren’t deserving (they weren’t the nicest of people and didn’t put in that much effort). In those situations, if I had negotiated and told myself, I need x, and y beforehand, it could have been a different situation (or at least better sex!).
      It’s definitely not for everyone to consider getting something beforehand. I wish the stigma could change though. xx
