Ask the hard questions after hookup #2. If you hook up with someone one time—say from a dating app, or a tipsy make out with a long-time acquaintance after your mutual friend’s house party—you don't need to debrief the next day. The sine qua non of one-time sex is that it requires so little of us.

A few weeks ago I was practicing my squash serves alone at the gym.One wall of the squash court is entirely glass, and people pass by it to get to the basketball court.The layout encourages an audience, which is fine when you’re playing a match but terrible when you’re a woman, practicing alone in the horny hours (7 to 10 P. At one point I looked around to see half a dozen men on the long bench by the glass, elbows on their knees, watching me.
I'd have been flattered if I wasn't terrified.A few minutes later, one guy banged on the glass until I opened the door and popped my head out.He was musclebound and a little bit orange, suggestive of time spent in Jersey.He just wanted to ask me my name, he said, and tell me that I had really impressive calves. When we’re at the gym we’re showing skin, exerting ourselves, and breathing hard—all things that happen while sexing.
(I do.) His friend stood nearby, uncomfortable but useless. Twice more the man knocked on the glass, giving me a crazy smile and a thumbs-up when I turned around. The cocktail of endorphins and the thrill of self-improvement makes us feel hot and feisty, and the Top 40 soundtrack tricks the brain into thinking it’s at a fun sexy club instead of an unfun hellhole.But even though it has all the trappings of a nice place to meet an attractive mate, the gym is actually right up there with your therapist’s waiting room and your office as far as worst places to flirt go.Even putting aside sexual harassment for a moment, we all enter a social contract when we join a gym.
