The Appeal of Adult Personals

It was probably inevitable that our culture's quest for instant gratification would extend into one area of life which, arguably, should never be rushed: intimacy. Then again, intimacy itself is anathema for those people who merely want to enjoy the benefits of sexual relations without the baggage that typically goes along with them. Social-networking sites like the casual-sex toting Facebook to adult personals services websites like Loving Links and the Ashley Madison Agency (which cater to those of us already involved in relationships but who're looking for "a little extra" on the side) promise virtually any and every kind of heated interplay between people without any pesky emotional attachments or sentiments of love making a complicated mess of things.

There are myriad reasons why men and women of all ages might choose to involve themselves in casual sex and use online resources to speed up the process of pairing up for that purpose. Many of these reasons aren't necessarily shallow or hedonistic. For example, many people cite casual sex as being an ideal balm for a broken heart. When we're feeling jilted and deflated, we may not be ready to commit our hearts and our trust to someone else for a long time to come. In the meantime, might not enjoying the pleasures of the flesh without any emotional risk help to soften the blow and heal our battered self-esteem?

If such is our simple goal, then why expend the time and energy demanded by all those traditional dating routes to consummating a casual encounter? Most of the features of popular personals and or networking web sites are geared towards expedience. Those of us who frequent them know what we're looking for, and we know that the people who we encounter in that virtual world will have the same objectives that we do.

The Observer Magazine article suggests future possibilities for quick hookups even when we're on the move (i.e., away from our computers). Though the mediums may change, the quest remains the same: not to find an ideal partner for lasting love, but merely someone suitable to provide satisfaction for right now. Physical intimacy may someday become as easily accessible as minute-meals and instant coffee. Those of us who are a little more old-fashioned and yearn for something longer lasting in our personal lives, however, can take heart in the knowledge that joining the technosexual revolution won't be our only option. Maybe that's partly why mainstream dating services like eHarmony, Chemistry.com and the likes are still going strong.
