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? White male around my age (17-18), average height, very funny and outgoing. Met 3 years ago in high school and became really good friends. Last year, he started coming onto me (although I didn’t realize it at the time) even though he had a steady girlfriend. When I finally figured it out I was emotionally distraught and felt used. I refused to cheat with him even though I had feelings for him, and a lot of trust was broken. He broke up with his gf and seemed to want to start a relationship with me but then he started dating another girl 2 years his junior instead. During this time I sorted out all my emotions an for we became good friends again. This summer his baby gf dumped him and we started hooking up. I used to feel ashamed that I was pining and waiting for him, but now I think my feelings are gone and I just wanted to get him out of my system.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We were just hanging out after his baby gf dumped him when he started coming onto me again really unsubtly (hand around the waist, rubbing my thigh/butt). I went with it and kissed him and we started hooking up every few days. At first, it was just handjobs and oral, and he let me control the pace (because I had never been with another person before) but eventually we had sex.
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? The sex was pretty good but I think he was more attracted to me than I was to him. Oral both ways, and vaginal sex. He was really hot for it and kept pulling out so he wouldn’t cum too fast. It was my first time so it wasn’t amazing, but it felt pretty good and I had a good time. It was also emotionally vindication because I felt like I was making a conquest.
How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Somewhat
Did you have an orgasm? No, but I was close
Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, multiple
What happened AFTER the hookup? How did you feel about it the next day? What are/were your expectations/hopes for the future with this person? How do you feel about them now? We are still friends, but I think our friendship has become more shallow due to the hookup. I am not too torn up about it, because I feel that our true friendship was shattered when he tried to cheat on his gf with me. In the future, I wouldn’t mind hooking up again.

Anything else you want to add about this hookup? My experience with porn and erotica has caused me to vastly overestimate the perfection/amazingness of sex; I am glad I got this realistic experience. Hopefully, future encounters will be even better!
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 believe that people should be emotionally mature and stable when having any sort of physical or emotional relationship. Spur of the moment decisions or things are done out of anger or revenge are not good for your mental well being
