When You Cheat on Your Boyfriend with 5 Girls

How long ago did this hookup happen? 7 years ago

What was your relationship status at the time? In a relationship (open)

How would you best classify this hookup? Group sex

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? At the time, 4 of us (Maria, Cho, Emily, me) identified as femme women and 1 person (H) as nonbinary masc. We were attending the same residential college. I was good friends with H, close with Maria, and acquaintances with Cho + Emily.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? The details are fuzzy because it was so organic. We were at a party that was winding down, and H invited some of us back to their room — those of us who weren’t quite ready to end the night. We trudged across campus in the snow to H’s dorm, warm and giggly from our buzz. H had a nice setup in his room — nice lighting, good music, and two mattresses low to the ground. They put on a good playlist and we all started making out with each other.

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 all kissed each other, went down on each other, and fingered each other. No toys, just tongues and fingers. I’m pretty sure that we all gave each person at least one orgasm… with 5 hotties, you can only imagine the sexy permutations!

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, more than one

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? It ended with us passing out in a naked cuddle-pile. The next morning we recounted our fun and went to brunch together at the nearest dining hall. We spent the next few hours having fantastic sex. It was my first time having sex with someone other than a man, and at the time I was dating a guy who was married (a story for another post). I technically cheated on him w 4 of my friends ???? But it was amazing! I think very fondly of this experience and think it was such a safe and fun environment in which to explore my queer identity. I lost touch with Emily and Cho. I remain good friends with H and we joke about this experience with endearment. I just moved to Maria’s city and would be thrilled to rekindle our FWB (I had some other experiences with her for which I will make separate posts).
