Are you hooked on hooking up? You know, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. If you've got the blues from too much boning, then listen up. Every now and then, it can be hugely beneficial to take and break from the non-stop fuck party and just stop and smell the roses. Because hooking up is more than just sex--it can become a lifestyle and culture. So if you're ready for a twist in your life, here's how you to detox from hookup culture.
For many gay man, hookups are a big part of your romantic life. And don't get me wrong, I'm not out here preaching about the immorality of casual sex or anything like that. A random hookup is one of the more flavorful spices of life. But spending too much fully immersed in hookup culture can bring some negative consequences. If you're hanging out at the bar every night until closing looking for any guy to fuck, maybe it's time to step back. Hookup culture can not only encourages binge drinking, but also terrible decision-making.
I don't know about you, but hookup culture in general makes it feel like everyone everywhere is constantly having sex. And if you're not having sex, there's a lot pressure to make you think that you should be! Detoxing means totally alleviating this pressure. Telling yourself that it's okay to not constantly be searching for a next lay.
In practice, this means, yes you gotta get off the apps for a little while. Unfortunately, these things are designed for hookups only, you'll be hard-pressed to find men interested in anything else on there.
It doesn't mean that you need to give up romance altogether. Detoxing from hookup culture means allowing true connections to blossom. Open yourself up building new relationships based on things other than mere sexual attraction. The resounding predominance of hookup culture doesn't mean that love is dead, you'll just have to work harder to find it.Previous Next
