I was reading a couple of weeks ago on the allopathic med forum a post by a young female in med school who was sharing her fear of possibley never having sex again due to the busy schedule that school imposes as well as the lack of opportunity of meeting people. The med student on the forum said that she feels like crying whenever she thinks of such a gloomy prospect. This topic is often not discussed but I know is a very serious concren that many of us have. Her post got me thinking of my own situation and how it is equally as depressing as hers even though I am not in med school yet. I brought this issue up with a good female friend of mine (I am male)and she was relieved that someone else was feeling just like her and she was glad I had the guts to bring up the issue. Well upon discussing this matter for quite some time we agreed that it could be quite beneficial for both of us if we hook up together. The benefit of such an arrangement is that there is a mutual agreement based on respect without the heavy emotional concerns that a heavy relationship entails. I recommend that a lot of students try this arrangement out...it certainly has worked in the most fantastic ways for me and my friend. HOWEVER, such an arrangement is VERY dangerous for those who are not comfortable with casual sex...for those people, i do NOT recommend this at all! This is just something to think about. I just thought I would share my personal experience and how it has been very positive for me and my friend and I hope some of you might benefit from such a post and such an idea.
