1. Do you really want to do this?
Just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you HAVE to get it on. There’s a lot of pressure on backpackers — many of whom are in their early twenties — to bang their other hostelmates. Obviously, if you want to bang, bang away; no slut-shaming here. But don’t feel obliged to bang, either. No always, always means no, even if it’s your last night in Barcelona. Enthusiastic consent means being able to say no at any point and stop the proceedings.
