Booty Call Basics 78157224

Not a one-night stand, a fling or a relationship, the “booty call” can be a convenient way to get some regular action between relationships without all the muss and fuss of picking up strangers in bars. When you want sex, you simply call up booty-call boy and if he’s available, you get together. Sounds brilliant, no? It can be, but often this kind of casual sex is like a nice warm glass of milk — soothing, comforting – but, left too long, it eventually sours. Here’s the 411 on “Booty Call” etiquette:

Rule #1

Respect the system. The key to a successful booty call relationship is to understand the terms. These arrangements are like a delicate ecosystem — start mucking with the arrangement and you’re usually asking for trouble. If one of you has missed – or conveniently forgotten – the point, you best get out of there.

Rule #2

Establish a special code or sign in order to avoid misunderstandings. If you’re out at a party and your booty call buddy happens to show up and you’re flirting with another guy, have a hand signal or code word that lets him know you’re closed for business with him tonight.

Rule #3

Booty Calls are not guaranteed. You can’t feel rejected if you’re out with your booty call and they a) don’t want to go home with you b) want to go home with someone else.

Rule #4

Limit the drunken booty calls: It’s to be expected in a purely sex-driven relationship that occasionally you’re out all liquored up and decide you’d like to get some. But calling drunk at 3am on a regular basis is rude and abuses your “booty call” privileges.

Rule #5

Don’t fill Booty Call Buddies in on your dating activities. Unless you plan on getting more serious. Why spoil a good thing before you have to?

Rule #6

Booty Calls usually have a shelf life. No sulking when your buddy gets a real date. This is the reason so many booty call relationships go awry. It’s all fun and games and easy, convenient, no-strings-attached sex until someone gets some more serious action.
Considering all the rules, why bother, you ask? Well, while it might be nice to wait patiently for the real thing, or to be attracted to one person for the rest of your life, but it’s not usually that cut and dry. There’s a lot of stuff in between the full deal and being single. And sometimes you just need a little something to get you through the night.
