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 looked different from her Tinder photos, but that was expected. She was thin with long dirty blonde hair and green eyes. We met at a restaurant near my house, and parted ways afterwards since we were both in transition of moving out of our parents’ house. Before the hookup I thought she was cool, but I could tell (and so could she) after the first date that it would just be a physical attraction.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? The second date, about a week later, she met me at my new condo. We started making out right away, and without planning, moved to the bedroom. Before that, she instigated sex by pulling down my pants and blowing me in my empty living room.
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? In the bedroom, she blew me some more and I went down on her briefly, since she was already really wet. We then started in missionary, then moved to cowgirl, then missionary again and finished off with doggie. She insisted no condom, so I obliged. The sex felt physically good, but that was the base of my attraction. She liked it, and I did my best to adapt my style into whatever kinks she said she was into. She was a pretty mediocre lover, but I never mentioned it to her. Afterwards, we talked about marijuana, since we both smoked, and then we smoked and went back at it.

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? This routine – come over, talk a little, smoke weed, fuck, talk a bit more, maybe fuck again, leave – went on for a bit over a month before we both kind of got bored of it – sometimes I wasn’t in the mood or she didn’t get wet – so we mutually ended things. I don’t think we’ll talk again, since she didn’t really stimulate me personality-wise, but it ended amicably.

Anything else you want to add about this hookup? It was fun until it wasn’t anymore.
What are your thoughts on casual sex more generally, the role it has played in your life, and/or its role in society? What would you like to see changed in that regard? Casual sex/dating is a fun activity until it isn’t anymore – and from there you have to make a choice to end it or pursue an emotional attraction. This has played a big role in this stage of my life – not necessarily good or bad, but it makes me acknowledge the things I need to work on myself in order to better find the type of women (and eventually, woman) I’m attracted to.
What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? It’s a cool outlet for people to reflect on semi-taboo life choices.
