Ladies -- have you ever gone on a casual sex spree? How did it work out?

This question is asked to the women because there is less of a cultural norm around this kind of behavior for women. I am 33, got out of a sad relationship a few months ago, and I'm just finishing a hellish slog through grad school. I find myself wanting to have a lot of casual sex.
I haven't acted on it, but I know that I could easily put up an okcupid profile, even semi-anonymously, and get plenty of dates. I am pretty good at closing the deal on sex (it's not exactly hard if you are somewhat attractive female). What I have in my mind is just to get out there and have sex with ~20 men over a period of a few months. I would have sex once or multiple times as I felt like it, and as they agreed to, but I'm not looking for a relationship immediately. I might even do it semi-anonymously, by using a nickname instead of my real name, or putting the profile up one town over, and keeping my details mostly private. I obviously wouldn't have sex with someone I met if I wasn't attracted to that person.
Have you ever done this? How did it work out?
(In case anyone asks, my motivations are to get some new experiences into my consciousness, to do something very physical, to face head-first something that has given me fear and sadness for a while, to live, to shake things up, to get out there in a very tangible way, etc.)
(And of course this would be with condoms and birth control pills.)
I would love to hear about your experiences.
