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? She was a short, petite lady, a little older than me. We met at a speed-dating event. Turns out she worked as a prosecutor for homicides, but she was the least judgmental and most unruly person I had ever met. At first I did not think much of her one way or the other, but my impression was that she liked me.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We had talked, and at the end, we received our matches. She was one of two women who agreed to meet me again. I suggested that we go for dinner, and we did. After that I suggested that we go to her place “for some cuddling”, being the naive nice guy that I was. She agreed. I still had an errand to run, so I did that and then went to her 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? As I am so enthusiastic about it, I gave her oral for a long time and then passionately kissed her everywhere. She smiled, moaned, seemed to enjoy it. She blew me a little, then we had passionate vaginal sex. As is often the case, I did not achieve orgasm during the first encounter.
