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? My roomate’s girlfriend is still in college, and she was in town for a summer internship. I started out hanging out with her and her intern friends (and my roommate of course.) it was mostly guys because it was a Comp Sci thing, but there was one other girl, Erin (not her name of course.) She was pretty shy and quiet. Very short and skinny, which is my usual type, and a redhead, which had always been an ambition of mine.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? After a couple of hangouts with these interns, they invited me and my roommate to go see the Fourth of July fireworks with them. I had never gone because I don’t really like crowds, but it seemed like fun. I had had my eye on Erin, but I honestly didn’t think I had a chance with her given the gender imbalance among the interns and how much smarter and richer they all were than me. Anyway, over the course of the night we talked a lot more than we had in previous hang-outs, and by the time the fireworks were over she was resting her head in my lap. The trains were a mess, and my apartment was on the other side of the city, and I told her how much it was going to suck having to open the cafe the next morning, since it was going to take forever to get home. She suggested I sleep at her place, which was both walkable from the fireworks and closer to where I worked. I wasn’t sure she was offering anything other than her couch, but when we got back to her apartment she made it pretty obvious what she meant.

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? She continued being shy and coy, like she was trying to seduce me, but seducing people was something she’d only seen in movies and she also wasn’t quite sure of herself. She told me to look away, then said I could look now and she was only wearing a pair of pink panties. Then she sat down on the bed and took off my shirt and we started kissing and touching each other, all above the belt though. She told me she’d wanted me since she first saw me, which made me feel really good about myself cause I’m not the sort of guy who normally gets told that. After a while I went for her underwear, but she told me to wait, so we just kept making out. Finally, after what seemed like forever, she slid my hand into her panties.
While I was working down there, she told me she didn’t want to go “all the way” with me tonight- those are the words she used, which made me aware all of a sudden that she was, though legally an adult, also technically still a teenager. I told her that was fine, and she started undoing my pants.
She proceeded to give me a very enthusiastic but also clearly unpracticed blowjob. I directed her as best I could, even demonstrating what I wanted her to do with her hands. She pulled out as I was about to cum, and I ended up cumming on her breasts.
After we cleaned up I offered to reciprocate, but she declined. We feel asleep shortly thereafter.
