Casual Sex After Divorce: Is Rebound Sex A Good Idea?

Is casual sex after divorce a huge relief or an emotional disaster just waiting to happen?

On Thursday, TheStir writer Jennifer Cullen made the case for rebound sex after divorce in a piece delving into her own experience hooking up post-split.

For Cullen, casual sex was a way to re-discover her sexuality after years of giving sex the short shrift in her marriage.

"I was ready to re-discover the sexual part of my personality, both alone and with a partner, because a vibrator only takes you so far," she explained, "And having sex to fulfill my needs without looking for an emotional attachment? It was no different than what hordes of men do. Just judged differently. And it worked for me."
