One part of my overall theme in these posts -- about rethinking psychological health in today's tumultuous, interconnected world -- includes looking with a fresh eye at the kinds of intimate relationships people enter into, and the conflicts that result. With respect to sexual relationships, in particular, I find that they generally take one of three forms in today's culture: " Hook-Up Sex ," " Marital Sex ," and the elusive -- and rare -- " Making Love. First, some clarification about what I mean by each term. That is, a purely physical encounter. And "Making Love" is a different kind of experience altogether, one that transcends both of the other two kinds. That is, the three kinds of sexual relationships occur on different planes , different levels of integration between your physical, animal being, your relational and your spiritual being. The kind of sexual life you have -- and its conflicts -- are embedded in the overall relationship you learn and how you "practice" it with your partner.
This might be new information for many ladies out there, but not every guy is the hookup type. I know. Always have sex on your own terms. You do you.

What Does “Hooking Up” Mean?
My boyfriend and I didn't necessarily hook up the first time we met but we were definitely hooking up for a long time before we decided that we were officially dating. In fact, I'd say there was about three months of ambiguous undefined "Wtf is this" territory before we even discussed becoming exclusive. And I don't think our story is unique either. In this day and age, lots of relationships start off as hookups. Wondering how it's done?
