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 relatively attractive, we talked for a little less than a month beforehand, a little flirtatious friendship met online for uni, he moved in down the road. Before the hook up I saw him as a friend.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? He asked. I thought it was a joke. Was late at night and I asked if he was joking, he said he wasn’t. Planning occurred in that we talked about what we liked and didn’t like, I put a ban on penetrative sex because of a previous relationship but this ban was quickly broken.

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? He received oral, I received oral, hand job, vaginal penetration. It was a bit awkward at first, it was relaxed, I felt comfortable and confident.

I am now in a serious relationship and whilst my boyfriend was a little insecure about how our friendship came about, both men have a friendly relationship and it hasn’t hindered my relationship in the slightest.

Current long-term boyfriend – thought it was a weird way that our friendship formed, was a little insecure at first but has gotten used to it and trusts that I am loyal and there are no feelings between either party.

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 has a huge stigma, particularly around the millennials and their supposed hook up culture, surrounding a wider culture of drink and drugs. The only other casual sex relationships or lack of I have heard about from my circle of influence is the kind of one-night stands after nights out and parties.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? I think it’s a good idea. People need to realize that their sexuality doesn’t necessarily have to always be tied to a relationship. But someone needs to send an angel and bridge the orgasm gap!
