Pardon me, Rationals, but I imagine the thought process might go something like this: "I'm horny. Today I'd rather have sex with someone else rather than pleasure myself. Who is available? I'm attracted to person x, y, and z -- I'll give "y" a call first. She said something about Tantric sex the last time we met."
Coming from the other way, "My Rational friend Susie said to call if I got lonely. Hello, Susie, I'm lonely. If you are open to it, I'd like to have sex with you at some point."
My experience with Rationals is generally they want clarity about what you want. When they themselves ask direct questions like this, they expect to be accepted or turned down and probably won't dwell morbidly on a negative outcome. In turn, they expect you not to brood either when they turn you down. After all, there are lots of fish in the sea (a phrase I believe was first spoken by a Rational).
Okay, have at it, friends.
I would say that's true. I would also add that a Rational would strategize to minimize their OWN entanglements, probably by using the internet to find a complete stranger and not even giving their name, phone number, or address. Although Inventors I've talked to who do this sort of thing seem to prefer the FWB type relationships where there are definite entanglements but not any expectation of romance. In this case, the nature of the relationship will be discussed and agreed upon so there are no misconceptions.
