5 Needles in a Hotel

How long ago did this hookup happen? 3 months ago

How would you best classify this hookup? Spur of the moment offer

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? Rowan was a moderately short, moderately hairy trans guy. He had flown in to check on his partner, who was put in lock-up for mental health issues and was staying in a hotel downtown for the time being. He was a very relaxed and friendly individual. He was also a massive germ freak, which is actually a really great trait for someone who is sticking needles into you. I met him at a get together that my partner, Louise, had thrown for themselves in celebration of leaving their soul sucking job and getting hired to do customer service for a global porn company.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? Near the end of the party, Rowan mentioned to Louise and I that he had brought along his play piercing kit, if either of us were interested in getting some pokes in that night. I felt a little bit nervous, because I haven’t done any play piercing before, but I was really curious about it. A failed ear piercing from my dad had ended with me giggling because of the intensity of the pain. As for the night’s offer, Louise and I agreed and also offered to run home and grab a tarp and a cupping set, for blood cupping if we were up to it.

What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? Did you have an orgasm? Did your partner(s)? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? When we got to the hotel, we agreed that some time in the hot tub beforehand would help everyone loosen up a bit and for everyone to get to know one another better. Afterwards, we headed up to his hotel room to get ready. Rowan and Louise laid down some towels on the bed and got everything prepped and I headed to the shower to wash off any leftover gunk from the hot tub water. Rowan asked me whether I wanted to be pierced on my breast or my back. Figuring lying down would be easiest, I chose my back. Rowan then started putting in the needles. By the second needle, my endorphins were flowing freely. By the third needle, I had an orgasm from the pain. I ended up stopping at five because I wanted a moment to experience the second wave of orgasm and was completely blitzed out on an endorphin high by that time. After rubbing me down with an alcohol pad, Louise sat up on the bed, ready for their needles. They ended up getting seven needles. Afterwards, we all talked about how that scene went and how well Rowan’s partner was doing in the lock-up.

What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy? Did you discuss STI history? Neither pregnancy nor STIs were much of an issue with our scene, but we made sure to take plenty of precautions against any sort of infection. I rinsed myself off after the hot tubbing and Rowan made sure to switch gloves when needed and to bring a satisfactory sharps container. We talked briefly about making sure that I didn’t have any sort of blood illnesses (such as Hepatitis).

What were your REASONS for having this hookup? I was really curious about the new experience of play piercing and a trusted friend of my partner was willing to do it for both of us. Plus, I loved the thought of doing classy activities like voluntarily sticking needles into each other in a random hotel room full of Comicon people.

Were alcohol or drugs involved? If so, how much? Nope. Drugs/any form of impairment and kink do not mix at all. Especially with a somewhat edgy activity like play piercing.

What happened AFTER the hookup? How did you feel about it? What are your expectations/hopes for the future with this person? How do you feel about them now? Afterwards, we all chatted inside the hotel room and Rowan mentioned how honored he felt to do my first piercing. I remember still feeling a little floaty from the endorphin high and just generally content. I’d love to meet up sometime in the future to do another play piercing scene with him and I really want to see if I could go further than just 5 needles.

To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? I spoke to a couple of co-workers about it. One I talked to because I love shocking her with all my kink stories and the other because I knew she was kinky too and really wanted to see the pictures we got from it.

Was this a consensual and/or wanted experience for you? For your partner? Yes, definitely. Neither Rowan nor Louise would’ve let me do it if I felt iffy about it.

Do you regret this hookup? If so, why? Not at all

What was the BEST thing about this hookup? How about the WORST? Has this hookup changed the way you think about casual sex, sexuality, or yourself in general? I remember loving how I could still see the marks leftover for about a week and how it reminded me about my experiences that night. I do wish we had gotten around to using the cupping set, but I also know that I wasn’t really in a position to push myself any further than I already had, considering the endorphin high.

All things considered, how POSITIVE was this experience? Very positive

All things considered, how NEGATIVE was this experience? Not at all negative
