Sex on the first date 'is fine'

Guys meeting up with a woman for the first time may want to ensure they keep a condom in their wallet, as a new book has explained it is fine for girls to sleep with a fella on their first date.

Andrea Syrtash and Jeff Wilser are the authors of the book and have told the New York Post that there is nothing wrong with individuals hooking up with someone they have just met.

Entitled It's Okay To Sleep With Him On The First Date: And Every Other Rule Of Dating, Debunked, the book aims to turn commonly-held perceptions of dating on their head.

Ms Syrtash explained people have to take risks when it comes to matters of the heart, stating: "Some of the best stories I've heard about people who find love feature those who broke dating rules."

Among the tips offered include not being deterred from dating a person because they are a work colleague, especially as love can arrive in places people least expect it to.
