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? M is short and stocky with a beautiful smile and adorable bangs. She’s a 31 year old poly goth woman with a love for the macabre and people who are up front about themselves. We’ve fooled around and even had sex in a group setting, but never gotten one-on-one time to do so.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We knew we wanted to get to know each other better in a private setting and scheduled a Saturday afternoon to do so. I think we both suspected there would be intimate moments and sex, but we weren’t explicitly planning for it.

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? After spending some time on her couch playing a game, we moved to her bed to take a nap. We did in fact sleep for a while and when we were both awake about an hour later, I told her I would very much like to kiss her. We began making out and grinding against each other. I pulled off my shirt to allow her hands better access to my skin and then she removed her top as well. After a minute more of dry humping, we both stripped off our pants and she reached into a drawer to hand me a condom. I eagerly put it on and then we fucked in missionary. I had forgotten how much she moans and how sweaty we both get. I loved the feel of our skin touching and the taste of her lips as we fucked. When we finished a couple minutes later, I pulled out and she apologized. I was confused for a moment before I noticed she was pointing out that my dick had her blood on it. “Looks like you started my period.” She told me and rushed to the bathroom.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, one

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, one

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? M and I are friends who also enjoy a sexual relationship. We spent more time together in the following days and had sex again once. We are deeply attracted to each other emotionally and don’t want this relationship to stop even though neither of us has time for a full time relationship right now. I keep thinking about her even though we haven’t had more than 10 minutes together in 10 days.
