As we gradually leave spring and begin entering the warmer months of summer many of us start to appreciate love. We want to date and be seen courting in the public’s eye. We snap “pics” and post videos that showcase fun dates, sexy clothing and warm breezes that kiss our shoulders as we are sitting on porches, or lakefronts wrapped in our lover’s arms on a summer night. However, if you fall into the category of people that are not set on the idea of committing- or simply looking for a good time- then it is safe to say that this summer you are probably going to be DTF.
DTF, or “down-to-finagle-your way into someone’s jeans before leaving and never continuously being bothered, or bothering them again” to put it lightly, is actually quite common amongst age groups 17-32. In this time of restored feminism and empowerment, many young women are taking claim to their sexuality and exploring the idea of multiple partners, just as men have been doing for eons. Being DTF does not mean that you are open to any and everyone, although you could be. It has long been understood that you will have to kiss a few frogs before the right one turns out to be your prince. And even if you are not looking for a “prince” there is nothing wrong with enjoying the selection process. But there are a few things you should know if you are going to put your name in that hat. Of course, it goes without saying that if you are sexually active, or actively promiscuous that you should definitely be using condoms, contraceptives, creams, gels, lubes, dental dams and any other preventative method because the last thing you want is something you DON’T WANT! **Male and female condoms rank the highest on those examples**
So without further ado, find the 7 Things Not to Expect If You’re Strictly DTF This Summer on the next page:
