Sex on the first date is contentious, and everyone has an opinion. 

Emily Ratajkowski opened up about sex on the first date and why it sometimes might be better to hold out.

The model shared her thoughts on the 'High Low With EmRata' podcast. 

She said, "I've been thinking about this a lot because it speaks so much to power dynamics and sex on the first date is the ultimate example of that."

Emily has been casually dating since her divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard  in July. 

"Because you're dealing with gender dynamics in such a specific little vacuum of a moment. I think If you're not ready to be vulnerable, that is a reason not to have sex on the first date."

The model explained that even if she isn't interested in interacting with the person again, she doesn't enjoy feeling like a goal that's been met.

"I still hate when I feel like there's a part of them that feels like, ‘Yeah, I hit that' kind of vibe. 

"Even if they're not the kind of guy who would say that out loud, but you can just feel it. That's a reason not to sleep with a man," she shared.

And in October, she told Harper's Bazaar that she had never been single before.

"I feel all the emotions. I feel anger and sadness. I feel the excitement. I feel joy. I feel levity. Every day is different. The only good thing I know is that I'm feeling all those things, which is nice because it makes me believe I'll be okay."
