Where To Find A Casual Sex Partner When You're Home For The Holidays, According To A New Survey
Now that we've all come out of our Thanksgiving food comas, the real holiday season is in full swing: our twinkling lights are lit, our ugly sweaters are donned, and our tickets home for the holidays are (hopefully) booked. As relaxing and worry-free as it is to be back in your hometown, I'll be the first to admit that it can get a little boring after a few days. The best way to spice things up if you're feeling stuck in a rut of watching Hallmark movies and eating Christmas cookies? Why, with a yuletide hookup with someone in your hometown, of course! If you're single, you might already be plotting how to find a holiday hookup this year — because those fresh-out-of-the-oven pies don't have to be the only thing that's ~steamy~ about your Christmas.
But if you're at home for the holidays, what are the odds that you'll even be able to find someone who's looking for some hot sex? Apparently, they're pretty good: according to a new survey by Trojan Brand Condoms, a whopping 60 percent of singles aged 18-24 said they're likely to have casual sex when home for the holidays. Whether it's with someone totally new or an ex from Christmases past, there's something exciting about getting it on when you're supposed to be spending all your time at home with your fam. It's like a #TBT to your high school days of sneaking around and having sex in cars because you weren't allowed to have people of the opposite sex in your bedroom (with the door open, that is),
So if you're single and ready to mingle this holiday season, what's the easiest way to find someone to hang out with? Here are the top four ways singles said they were planning to score a hookup while home for the holidays this year.
1. Sending Texts Or Direct Messages
Will us young folks ever tire of sliding into each other's DMs? Apparently not, because 78 percent of those surveyed said that sending a simple text or DM was their plan of action for finding a hookup this holiday season. Just remember to look up some pickup line inspo before you hit send (and feel free to use some sexy Christmas puns while you're at it).
2. Hitting Up A House Party
If you're lucky and all your closest friends are also able to make it home for the holidays, there will probably be at least one house party — and therefore at least one opportunity to mingle with other cute singles. According to the Trojan survey, 66 percent of singles said that they would be on the lookout for potential hookups at house parties this holiday season.
3. Mingling At A Bar Or Club
When you're packing your suitcase, don't forget to pack your flyest going-out get-up: if your town has a hoppin' bar or club scene, that's the perfect opportunity to socialize while you scout for someone to hook up with. Over half of singles (55 percent) said that they'd prefer to get cozy with someone they met while out on the town.
4. Using A Dating App
And of course, no holiday hookup search would be complete without falling back on old faithful: our handy dandy dating apps. Of those surveyed, 50 percent said they'd simply turn to their favorite dating app to help them find someone to have casual sex over the holidays.
So no matter how you plan on finding your hookup this holiday season, just remember: it's always better to be on the Naughty List.
