Booty protocol

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 7:07 am

From our pals at the Daily Bedpost, advice on minding your booty call manners that you’ll never hear from Miss Fling.

Most people don’t talk about booty calls. That’s part of their appeal: “We don’t have to endlessly com-mu-ni-cate because we’re not in a serious relationship.” People rely on a tacit understanding when it comes to casual sex with their friends and neighbors, and especially their exes. But it’s silly to assume that everyone “understands” the exact same set of personal guidelines. The implicit, unlegislated booty call is a complicated procedure, due to varying agendas, the likelihood of miscommunication, and the chance of emotional intimacy. The smart people know that without rules, there are expectations, and those, by definition, make things messy. Even if you don’t think you have any expectations, that in itself is an expectation: That you not expect anything of me, that you not sleep over, that you not get mad if I don’t call you back. So let’s once and for all manage those expectations with The 25 Rules of the Modern Booty Caller.

Click here for the rest, including this uber-rule: “No matter how casual the set-up, remember that your booty buddy is a human being.”

  1. So where are the rules you speak of? I was very impressed with your intro and then you leave me with a hard on for them… not cool. Very deceptive or is this how you make money with the blog pimping Glamour. Ew!

  2. well, i’m not sure i appreciate your tone, but i am glad you reminded me to run a correction/update. the easily Googleable and very sad fact is this: http://www.yourtango.com/20087653/conde-nast-shuts-down-daily-bedpost. wah! we love(d) dailybedpost! anyway, so now all dailybedpost links automatically switch over to Glamour; it happened without my doing anything. I did try to find the original post for you over at emandlo.com in their archives, but i couldn’t. sorry! for more on the topic, though, perhaps you’ll enjoy this. http://www.breakupgirl.net/comics/fling01.html
    hope that helps! and thanks for visiting.
    love,
    breakup girl
