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 was female, 30 years old, around 5’6″, with a modestly athletic build. We had never hooked up before. How did I feel about her? Well, I just wanted to have sex with her once or twice.  It turned out she was looking for the same thing.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We met at a group getaway over a long weekend. It was just a bunch of friends and acquaintances in cabins in the woods, drinking beer and relaxing – not a sexually-themed gathering or anything like that. She was a girlfriend of a friend of a friend. During that weekend, we got wasted and started making out when nobody was around. This was fortunate because I had just got engaged to my long-term girlfriend like a week or two before.

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? Oral (both ways), vaginal, anal, lots of kissing, it was passionate, full-on sex. She was a very generous lover and enjoyed some dirty talk. We had two hookup sessions. The first lasted a whole night and through the morning. Her boyfriend was out of town and I told my fiancee I was visiting a friend in another city. The second was just for a few hours, I borrowed a friend’s apartment.

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 I feel now? Well, I hope she’s doing fine in life, etc., but I don’t especially miss her or anything. It was just two people who wanted to fuck, no strings attached.

Has this hookup changed the way you think about casual sex, sexuality, or yourself in general? It made me more open to the idea of cheating on my partner. It also confirmed for me that casual sex is absolutely fine. And in other hookups since then, I’ve been much more careful about condom use, etc.

All things considered, how NEGATIVE was this experience? Not at all negative

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? People should be more open about sex, especially when it comes to secret desires/fantasies. Like bi-curious people in long term relationships should have the freedom to explore their sexual inclinations with their partner’s consent. Otherwise, the urge could push them into behaviors they would otherwise like to avoid.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? Awesome!
