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? I’d know her for years prior. Always in a work environment, so we never really had a serious conversation though I always thought she was a cool chick. Light brown hair, just under 5 foot, very bubbly personality. The kind of person everyone likes to be around. Just a lot of fun! I’d only run into her once every few months or so. Eventually she married another coworker which I thought was great! Great girl found love with what seemed to be a cool guy. Very happy for them both. It wasn’t until several years later when we had the opportunity to sit down and get caught up that I learned it hadn’t been a happy marriage. Among several other issues, she informed me it had become a sex less marriage, in fact she had gone over a year without it. I’d check in with her via phone call every now and then, it would start as a work related call, and end with her personal issues and challenges in her marriage.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? A year or passed until one day during a random conversation over instant messenger I suggested I offer her some pity sex. Much to my surprise she responded with “I accept!….YES Please!” We started toying with the idea of a quick affair. I have a healthy marriage, yet needed something at the time. I was starving for something different, something new. She admitted she’d always found me attractive, even more so than her husband. We started exchanging dirty pictures. Would talk dirty over messenger daily. Seriously drove each other insane with sexual desire. Finally I had a work trip to her town on the horizon and we planned to hook up and make it happen. I arrived the afternoon before the work event and she met and drove me to my hotel.

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? Upon entering my hotel room we were both faced with the awkward fact that we’d never even hugged before, let alone anything more. We spent at least 20 minutes sitting on the bed, doing small talk and trying to find a way to break the ice. Finally we agreed to force the issue, though slowly, and removed our shirts and try some back rubs…with her bra still on. Again, moving a little slow. After about 5 minutes of a rather awkward set of back rubs we agreed to lay down and cuddle. This set something off in her. After maybe 30 seconds she leaned over and kissed me. We kissed for a minute or so until she got up and removed all of her clothes. I followed her lead and undressed as well. We laid back down at which point she asked that I get on top of her. We assumed the missionary position. I slowly penetrated her and was absolutely amazed how good she felt. She was extremely wet! Much more of an intense feeling from what I’ve become used to with my wife. She reach her orgasm after about 3 pumps, something that she’d later admit both surprised and embarrassed her. We continued for several minutes until I finished inside her. Would have loved to have gone longer, but it was incredibly difficult to last that long with that level of intensity. After I finished we remain in the missionary position until we finally got up , dressed and decided to grab some dinner all the while laughing with the thought of “Did we just do that?” We finished dinner and were about to head back up to the room for another round when her husband called. She decided it would be smart to head home. I agreed.

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 had planned for another hook up later that trip, but with work and timing it just didn’t work out. We promised we’d try and meet up at the minimum of 5 or 6 times a year, but again we could never make it work between schedules and living in different states.
We are still good friends today, and have a huge sense of humor over the whole thing. Obviously were much closer friends , but nothing physical. We still speak often. She is currently undergoing a divorce. I even give her dating advice.

What was the BEST thing about this hookup? Totally recharged me. Gave me a quick escape from my normal sex life, and allowed something incredibly intense and exciting. It even made sex with my wife better. For her, she only says it was exactly what she needed at the time. And will jokingly thank me to this day.

What was the WORST thing about this hookup? I wish we could have experience each other at least a few more times. The chemistry was amazing but ultimately lead to some emotional attachment for both of us.
