This happens to women between relationships. After a woman breaks up with her boyfriend, she will spend some time slutting it up with attractive males, before she looks for a new boyfriend.
Some individuals appear to prefer one form of mating over the other (Simpson and Gangestad 1991, 1992), and many people use short-term mating in certain contexts (e.g., vacations) or particular phases of the life course (e.g., immediately after the dissolution of a long-term relationship).

Many articles on the Internet suggest that no-strings-attached (NSA) sex is a good option if a woman is between serious relationships.
That said, a no strings attached relationship could be a good fit for you if:
You’re in between serious relationships right now and just want to have some fun in the meantime.
Don’t squash your other options. This is an NSA relationship, so, that means you can date other people. Actually, I recommend that you do so. Don’t feel that you have to put your dating life on hold because you’re having NSA sex.
In fact, I would see an NSA relationship as a healthy pause from serious dating. So, it’s okay to take a break from the dating scene and have NSA sex, however, don’t spend too long down that road because you won’t be fulfilling your emotional needs.
