Must-know rules of casual sex in modern India

Last updated on: August 04, 2017 19:58 IST

Your guide to the Jab Harry Met Sejal way of life.

Jab Harry Met Sejal

When Sejal talks matter-of-factly about 'intercourse', and Harry openly admits he is a 'waise wala aadmi' -- in the Anuskha Sharma-Shah Rukh Khan starrer, Jab Harry Met Sejal -- they're just reflecting the times we live in.

Our only bit of advice? Read what we've listed below before you take the plunge.

Girls, it's okay to make the first move
It's 2017, guys!

 

Swipe right, swipe left, but swipe!
Make Tinder -- or any other dating app for that matter -- your best friend. How else are you going to find options?

 

Be willing to burn a hole in your pocket
Forget 'your place or mine'. Splurge on a room in a REALLY GOOD hotel -- and we can't reiterate this enough.

 

Let a friend in on the secret
Safety comes first.

 

Be prepared...
With condoms/morning after pills and pepper spray.
Repeat after us: Safety comes first.

 

What's underneath is just as important as what's on top
And that means undergarments with no holes.

 

DO NOT skimp on the mints
Hygiene counts.

 

If you are a virgin, do not hide it
This is one instance that screams full disclosure.

 

Be old school
Read: No selfies or videos.

 

You can say no
Just keep the pepper spray handy.

 

If the sex is not good...
Chalk it up to experience (isn't that the whole point of playing the field?) and move on.

 

Clinginess is not sexy
Ultimately, make sure you are prepared for no-strings-attached hook-ups.
