In one post, Ashley Madison was revealed to be a hot spot for cheaters because it was a playground designed for people who are fantasizing about cheating. It gave them an idea that cheating was OKAY because society thinks that it’s OKAY. What’s the big deal, right?
Still in its infancy
There’s not much research done into looking at the psychological effects of casual sex as it’s still in its infancy. On top of that, there’s never a clear understanding of what casual sex does and cannot do to a person’s psychological well-being.

What do I think about this?
I think casual sex is something that’s being fancied by a lot of single people or those that are not capable of committing to a serious relationship. Think Barney Stinson from How I Met your Mother or Hank Moody from Californication, two of the more prominent symbols for casual sex in mainstream media.
However, I would like to believe that casual sex and an individual’s proclivity towards it could mean a psychological trauma that coincides with abandonment and commitment.
