    På knull kontakt kan single finne oppegående sexpartnere som kun er
    ute etter erotiske eventyr, og dette med noen som deler samme
    preferanser som dem. Det aller enkleste er å inkludere rumpehullet i den vanlige kosingen og kjælingen med kjønnsorganet, uten å stikke
    fingeren inn:. Fokuset her er ikke på den raske, anonyme og overfladiske tilfredsstillelsen, men på et
    spennende møte mellom to mennesker som ønsker å dele singelsex erfaringer med hverandre.
