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? Me and him had been sort of dating but it was complicated. We met in school, and this was our first hookup. We were walking through the woods but originally met at his place. And how I felt? Honestly, I wasn’t even planning for the hookup to happen. It just kinda happened.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We hooked up in the woods. What led to it was a condom packed in his bag. Sounds funny but true. Honestly, I didn’t plan it to happen but I have a slight feeling he was part of the planning process. He suggested we hook up.

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? It was mostly vaginal sex being given to me. During the whole process, I felt amazing since it was my FIRST time. It felt orgasmic. My partner kinda just focused on the sex. Yes, he was an excellent lover. We didn’t talk during the sex. It ended with me super wet. And after we just went back to his place.

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?

Honestly now I still think about him occasionally with weird feelings but not on a daily basis. I do miss the sex though.
