Casual sex is contact between people for which the main reason is sex. The commitment of the partners is therefore limited. The casual sex contact can be a one-time encounter or take place more often. Sometimes the partners know each other in advance, sometimes they do not.

The partners can be in another kind of relationship with one or more other persons. 

If you have unprotected casual sex contacts with different partners, you may run a higher risk of STIs. Use a condom to protect yourself.
