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? The guy was 4 years older than me and he was in medical school. We met on the cruise. A few nights into the trip, we both were hanging out in the same group of friends we had met earlier on the trip. We started talking that night. He was very nice and pretty hot. He was enough older than me, me having finished my first year in college and him being in med school, that I never thought he would go for me, even though I was into him.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We kept hanging out with that group every night of the trip. We would flirt while we hung out. He would put his arm around me and make subtle comments about how he was into sarcastic girls, which I very much am. So, after about three nights and many cocktails, I pulled him out of the club and showed him a secret elevator I found. We made out in the elevator for a while. He used a LOT of tongue, but in a good way, something I had never experienced before. We went back down to the group about 20 minutes later. However, when I went back down another guy had shown up in the group. This guy was my age and attended an Ivy League school. We started talking that night, and two nights later I made out with the Ivy boy in the same elevator. He was not as good and got very clingy and weird so I dropped him and went back to the older guy. The next night I pulled the older guy back out of the club and this time we went to the top floor of the boat. It was about 3:00 am so no one was out, and we found a secluded area with lawn chairs. It was a nice night, not too cold and only a bit windy outside. We talked for a while and eventually started making out. That escalated and my shirt came off, then his; our bodies keeping each other warm underneath the stars. Then I put my hand in his pants and he put his hand in mine. It was good. He fingered me and I gave him a handjob. We stopped there that night seeing as there were people below and we didn’t want to do that much in public. So we made plans for the next night.

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 next night we didn’t meet up with the group. I went straight to his room. I got there and we immediately started making out. My shirt came off and then his did too. Then I took my pants off and he did the same. I laid on his bed, only my underwear. He was slightly aggressive. He pulled off my underwear and took a second to look at the naked girl lying on his bed. He crawled on top of me and we started to make out again. We stopped so he could put on a condom and then he slowly penetrated me. I hadn’t had sex in a while so it kind of hurt. It got better after the first few thrusts, then it felt good again. I moaned, but I was afraid someone would hear through the walls of his room on the cruise ship so I tried to keep quiet but it was hard (and so was he). He would go slow then speed up then go slow again. Every once in a while I thought he was finishing because he would go fast and then really thrust hard and push himself into me as far as possible. He would grab my legs and spread them apart like he wanted to go as deep inside me as possible. It felt really good every time. He never fished when he did that though, he would keep going. After a while, we switched it up and I got on top. I rode him and he grabbed my tits, holding them in place as I bounced up and down on his dick. After a while, he told me to stop and I got off. He told me he was afraid to cum in people for fear of getting them pregnant. I told him I was on birth control and the condom was still intact but he still didn’t want to. Instead, I sucked his dick to make him cum. It didn’t take more than 30 seconds. He moaned when he came and I ran to the bathroom to spit. Then we got dressed.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? No, but I was close

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, one

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 got dressed, made out a bit more and I left the room. We hung out with our friends again later and would make subtle looks at each other, acknowledging what we just did. He would still sit and put his arm around me and his hand on my leg. That night was our last night on the cruise. He walked me to my room, kissed me very passionately, and then I went to bed. We all got off the boat and we haven’t talked since, and I have no desire to. Not because it was bad, it very much wasn’t, but because it was just a one-night hookup. It ended well and we left it at that.
