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? White amazing smile, charming by nature and well fit for my taste. Known him for 5 months approx, we used to go out with a group of friends from work. It was the first time we hooked up. We met at work, he’s on the service line and I’m on the cooking line. I never thought about hooking up with him, I had straight feelings towards him, didn’t appeal to me much. He had a girlfriend.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? My bed. After several visits, we were talking about his break up and how torn he is and how to look ahead and fix everything in his life, including his career. It was more of an improving his character and knowledge conversation. He loves her. I know that. We were talking then he asked me to play with his hair, makes him feel safe and warm. I did. We didn’t plan anything ahead. Never thought about it. Obviously, he started it. No bad intentions intended, he started hugging me and his breathing got warm and close that I couldn’t resist.

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? He kissed me, I resisted. We work together, I will see him tomorrow. He nodded and denied, proceeded and everything got to animal instinct. Warm, safe, secure, fierce, enjoyable and intense. We had sex. He came, tried again, he came, apparently, he was able to cum 8 times without any problem. It was a problem for me. He was frustrated and annoyed and ashamed. We spoke, told him it’s alright since you have been with your ex but never had any intercourse. It was understandable. We had sex and it felt good and caring. It was great, despite the thickness of his dick. He was caring. He showed he was comfortable and loving. He was a good lover indeed. He felt bad after all and thought he was cheating on his ex. Ended up with a reconciliation. It’s alright, you didn’t cheat. You needed this, and you feel good about it. Relax, you enjoyed it.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? No, but I was close

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, multiple

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? I felt good, but I felt I wanted more. I had the same scenario I have at all times. Hooking up, oh he’s good, we could definitely live together, good partner and so on. Stop right there you and your ideas. Relax it’s just a hookup. Expecting a call, something. Got a text. Saw him at work. I feel good about him, I like him, and that’s not good. Cleverness is not to fall into expectations.

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? In society, it’s pure stress and illogical ideas. It’s just casual sex, get over it. Men want sex? We have needs too. We don’t need to be called sluts for having hook ups. I’d want people to stop judging just for the sake of it.
