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 was 10 years older, blond, fit guy. He looks younger then his age, boy band kind of look 🙂 Musician, guy that is famous by his success with girls. He worked all over the country, and during these days he was in my town for a while. He was cousin of my best friend, and she set up that few of us have drinks. She wanted to meet him with another friend. I was curios to meet him, because she was talking a lot about him. I wanted to see what will happen because I had idea that two of them wouldn’t end up together. During drinks two of us connected right away. We had similar idea of fun, love, sex. He walked me home, we kissed, exchange numbers and start planning future meetings.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? He started talking about sex and I went with the flow. In that time I was 18, very curios about sex, I read a lot, but I was not involved with anybody. I had few petting sessions with previous boyfriend, but I didn`t like him enough and felt secure to go all the way. So, when this guy start to plan sex, I accepted. So, we decided to go in for drinks and drive to some remote place.

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? When we parked, we moved to back seat. We started to kiss and undress each other. It felt great. He went down on me, and I enjoyed it very much. After that, I went down for him. I was very into it, I liked the way he enjoyed it. After that we fucked missionary. Since, he was my first it hurt a little bit.And I was bleeding a little bit at the moment, and I little bit tomorrow. But after that first stroke, it was great. I was so excited that I am not sure if I come or not. He was very gentle, attentive. One of guys who enjoys sex and girls. I can`t remember how he come.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? I don’t know

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? I didn`t tell him, that he is my first,so he was surprised. He said that he is sorry that I didn`t tell him, because he would make it more memorable. At that moment, I knew that he would go after few weeks, so we I didn`t have plans with him. But, there was part of me, that wanted to be in relationship with him, because he was so cool, and all of my friends said that there is no way that we will end up together. We saw each other few more times, and I realized that I want boyfriend and since it is not going to happen with him, it is the best to stop it. We are still great friends, and we hooked up few more times during past years. Sex with him is still some of the tops in my life. I regret that I didn`t tell him that he is my first and that I wanted to make that experience less important then it was to me. Now I get that embracing your sexuality means and embracing the way you practice it at the moment. Being casual doesn`t mean that is not important to you.
