Tell us about your PARTNER(S). What did they look like? How well did you know them, had you hooked up before? How/Where did you meet them? How did you feel about them before the hookup? He’s someone I’ve known since high school. I always had feelings for him but never acted on them. He was a great friend to hang out with, go out with, and was always in contact with me over the years. I’ve always liked him.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? I hadn’t seen him in over eight years and when I recently left my ex, he insisted that we meet up for drinks. We met up, went bar hopping, and I was feeling brave enough to tell him of the crush I’ve always had for him. He confessed to always liking me as well. Anyway, we ended up in the back seat of his car.
What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? I don’t care for oral because it’s never was good for me, but he insisted and it was the best I’ve ever had. He discovered my nipple piercings and that drove him wild. The sex was amazing, wild and hot. He’s a great lover. We talked about the past, and set up to see each other again.

What are your thoughts on casual sex more generally, the role it has played in your life, and/or its role in society? What would you like to see changed in that regard? I don’t think casual sex is for everyone, some can’t separate sex and feelings. Casual sex has helped me with my needs, wants, and I’ve been able to get back to life and all that I have going on. I think casual sex shouldn’t be seen as something negative, but there should be more resources and awareness on safe sex practices. Maybe bars should give out condoms to the ones that ask for them.
What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? Very interesting
