Looking to hook up for casual sex in Sydney? Game for a casual encounter?
There are a number of ways to indulge in some no strings fun in Sydney, ranging from the bold and brave (pulling in a bar) to the sleazy and downright effective (crawling the classifieds).
If you want to enjoy some NSA sex, we’ve put together this guide to casual encounters in Sydney…
A Guide to Casual Encounters in Sydney
As one of the most visited cities in Australia, there is an abundance of singles looking to mingle around Sydney’s bars, clubs and pubs.
If you play your cards right, there is plenty of casual sex available.
From backpackers and tourists to business travellers and locals, the opportunities for a casual encounter don’t come any more guaranteed than in the Harbour City.
But it’s not just bars and clubs where you should be looking…
Finding No Strings Sex Using the Adult Personals
As many of you will be aware, one of the best ways to find casual sex (or a willing hookup) is to head online and check out the adult classifieds.
While the following sites can be somewhat murky to navigate — and littered with ads for escorts and erotic massage — they can still turn up genuine personals from bored housewives and horny ladies looking to enjoy a bit of a fun on the side…
Use with your expectations in check.
Craigslist Casual Encounters
Craigslist has a global reputation for being the number one go-to for casual hook-ups and there is little wonder why when you consider the thousands of listings available in any given city.
Sydney is no exception and has over 2000 adult personals under the notorious ‘casual encounters’ section.
Free to browse, and free to advertise, there are admittedly some flaws in the way the site works: no members are verified, nor is there any way to review the users online.
As a result you do take your chances on the authenticity of the details and photos provided as well as having to filter out the paid escort services. The other issue is the way the results are displayed. You can search via an age range and distance from a postcode as well as keywords, but it’s a bit of a mash-up.
One advantage of Craigslist SYD is that it filters the casual encounters by what, specifically, you are looking for. For example: W4M, M4W, M4T.
Like Craigslist, Locanto is a classifieds site with a bustling adult section where readers hunt for no strings sex at every hour. There are over 1000 results in the NSW area at the time of writing.
You can narrow your search to return results that match the kind of hookup you are looking for (W4M, couples seeking couples, TS for men etc.) as well as the general area. Once again the adverts vary in detail and authenticity so you may need to spend a while filtering out the wheat from the chaff. However, as a 100% free service it is worth spending a little time on.
A group Reddit stream for people based in Sydney looking for anything from casual hook-ups to meeting for other activities. There are 1200 users registered and you have a better chance of being noticed on this group as each member has opted to be a part of this community. Safer than Craigslist and more direct than other sites, the Reddit group is 100% free.
Another site similar to Craigslist, Cracker simply has a dating section rather than casual encounters listings; however, most of the adverts are for NSA hook-ups with a variety of W4M and M4W ads.
Like Craigslist and Locanto, Cracker is free to use whether you are browsing or advertising.
The same issues apply in that it is not easy to discern which ads are genuine nor whether you can trust the information listed. That said, there is a good range of members available and taking your chances is part of the fun.
(Until it goes badly wrong, right?!)
Australia’s number one adult hookups website, Adult MatchMaker has thousands of singles looking to meet up for sex. As well as plenty of couples and cheating spouses.
As far as casual encounters go, this site is one of the most active in Sydney.
Similar to Adult MatchMaker but with a massive global reach. AFF is the original casual encounter / online hookup tool.
If you’re travelling beyond Sydney, this site can help you hook up for casual sex and one night stands in just about any country where it isn’t banned(!).
Casual Encounters Sydney
Free to join and with thousands of registered users in the Sydney area aged 18-50, the Casual Encounter website specialises in bringing consenting adults together for NSA sex.
Free membership allows you to browse the listings by postcode but you will need to pay to gain access to premium features such as the online chat facility as well as being able to swap contact details.
Hot Spots for Meeting Women in Sydney
If you would prefer to take your chances on the town then there are hundreds of bars, pubs and clubs around Sydney to choose from.
Each one has their own distinct character and style, it’s important to find one that attracts singles if you are looking to bag some casual sex or a quick fling.
We’ve heard a lot of readers reporting ‘success’ at these venues:
174 King Street, Newtown, NSW 2042
The atmosphere at this trendy locals bar is inviting and the place seems to attract single ladies in their mid-twenties to thirties.
388 Pitt Street, Sydney, NSW 2000
This small but well attended club on Pitt Street usually has some great international DJs headlining. The venue is open Monday to Sunday 10pm to 5am and attracts plenty of single ladies looking for that all night party vibe — many of them keeping it strictly NSA.
The Bearded Tit
183 Regent Street, Redfern, NSW, 2016
Offering live music and a warm welcome, the Bearded Tit has been voted Time Out’s Best Neighbourhood Bar 2016 and with little wonder as to why. With great live music, stunning selection of drinks and attracting some of the friendliest people in the city you should have no problem meeting women at this pub.
