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 5’7, tan, lean body, had a nice smile. I had a gig with a band, who were my friends, in another city. After the concert, he introduced himself to me. During our conversation, I had the impression that he was cocky but he was cute so I kept talking to him. He’s flirty so I also flirted back. We exchanged numbers and kept in touch constantly.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We did not see each other for a couple of months due to long distance but we kept texting and calling each other every day. I later found out he had a girlfriend. He told me. But it didn’t stop us from flirting with each other. He invited me to visit him in his city. His girlfriend lives overseas so I didn’t have to worry about that.
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? We checked in at a hotel. He let me take a nap because I was tired from the long travel. I woke up feeling his hands around my waist. I turned around and he kissed me. I kissed back and his hands were all over me. He felt me up and played with my clit for a while. I returned the favor by sucking his cock. We stayed in the hotel for a few hours making out but no penetrative sex happened. I was hoping for it but it did not happen.

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 spent the rest of the day driving around the city. He took me to touristy places and we took pictures. I had to get back that night because I had school the next day. We became very close after that. He was like a best friend to me. I also started to like him but he had a girlfriend. I was hoping he would breakup with her so we could be together.

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? Casual sex is fun but it’s like playing with fire. I’m not against it but I don’t promote it either. You have to know yourself well if you want to engage in it. This is not for people who tend to get emotionally attached easily because it can break you in the end.
