Why is casual sex bad for you?

What, you don’t remember hooking up? Picture this: you’re checking Facebook, scrolling through Twitter, flipping through Insta, when you run across an ad or a message from someone you barely know.

How much do you want to know about this person? Do you want to know the details of their interests, if they’re naughty or nice, if they like to go down on you, if they have children? It’s okay
