Do You Troll Craigslist For NSA Sex?

Is this better or worse than picking up someone at a bar?

Last night I was out with a friend who, although being in a somewhat serious relationship, spent the last two round of drinks on Craigslist looking for a hook-up. When I say “somewhat serious relationship,” what I actually mean is that although they live together, their sex life is pretty much non-existent.

There is an “understanding” between the two of them, although they’re not in an “open relationship,” that should an opportunity arise, they are allowed to indulge. Having never been in an “open relationship” or even one that allows such behavior, I supported her in her pursuit to get laid. According to my “friend” pamphlet, that’s my responsibility. I do not judge. OK, I judge sometimes, but it’s over superficial things like hot pink spandex leggings under a skirt or goatees and all that stuff that should have remained in 1997. But as far as sex goes, I do not judge.

I can admit I have looked at the Craigslist “casual encounters” posts, but mostly for a laugh. Have you ever read them? They’re AMAZING. However, no matter how much my vagina is aching for a cock, I have never emailed anyone. It’s an entertaining read and sometimes you stumble upon someone whose ad is actually masturbation worthy. I prefer words to videos and movies.

This friend of mine is actually quite frequent on the Craigslist NSA scene; so frequent, in fact, that I get links to her possible “meet-ups” from her for a second opinion at least twice a week. Nine times out of 10 I vote “no.” I may not have the Lifetime channel, but I know about these Craigslist type killers. THEY ARE ALL KILLERS, RIGHT?

We live in New York City. Do you know how many lunatics are out there? Walking down the street this is confirmed on a daily basis. But yet, that’s her “go to,” when it comes to fucking, and she has yet to be murdered. They always meet at a public space, and if he seems weird, she bails. But more often the not, she goes home with him.

Sometimes, according to her, the sex is phenomenal; other times, it’s bad and she goes home, crawls into bed next to her boyfriend unsatisfied and knowing that he’s not going to step up to the plate either.

And she is just one case; my male friends, both straight and gay, use it quite frequently, too. I guess Grindr doesn’t always deliver in regards to reaching an orgasm.

I’m almost certain I’m being a prude on this one, but does anyone else do this?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      Actually, I do the majority of my NSA trolling on Tumblr. It’s more effort but I have a better idea of what I’m getting before I arrive and whether it’s safe or will suit me.

      Eh, I’m married. Old school, only have sex with each other married. But if I weren’t, I’d still probably cruise the real world for casual sex. Find somebody with skills who is in the market for a booty call and lock that down. I’ve watched too much Law and Order to let my guard down with someone I met online.

      Although I occasionally troll the ads for amusement, I’ve never actually considered answering one. My boyfriend has, though, a couple of times. He pretty much just got an address from the guy and went over for sex. I’m amazed he’s not in pieces in someone’s freezer right now.

      Yay options!

      But seriously, I’ve never done this, and I really think it’s smart not to. Both New York and Chicago are very big cities with lots and lots and lots of crazies. I prefer to take my risks on other things.

      I’ve looked over it for fun but never used it. I have however been a user of Blendr which is grindr for heterosexuals. I’ve met a lot of bi guys. It’s pretty fun because you have some sort of visual aid and it’s immediate gratification.

      While in Texas for business, I met one of the hottest women I’ve ever been with, through CL. She came to my hotel, we made out, I ate her out, we screwed, and then I ate her some more.
      I had placed an ad, asking if any women wanted to be licked, and she responded.
      Great lips, 40C tits with big dark areolas and big nipples, great thighs, and one of the tastiest pussies I ever had.
      I’ve also met with a woman a few times in my area (with great boobs), for various adventures in my car.
      And another, who was really hot, just came to watch me jerk off.
      I love CL.

      I’ve also received some good head from guys.
