The Women, women do not have tons of options for sex they would actually want to have.

Many people say… that a woman seeking casual sex doesn’t need to pay for it, she can find it at any corner, and that only very unattractive women would need to pay for it,” Vrangalova says. “But the reality is, even though casual sex is indeed easily available to many women, good, safe, and discreet casual sex is not so easy to find.”

While women can easily pick up a suitor at a bar or on an app like Tinder, “the chances are high that that guy will not be a particularly good lover, will not care about your sexual pleasure, will not be as good-looking as his photos suggested, will not be very fun to talk to, will act like a douchebag and treat you poorly, will not give you the massage you really wanted, will not respect your sexual limits, will refuse to use a condom, will tell all his friends you’re a slut afterwards, etc.,” Vrangalova says.
