Just Some Romance from a Down-to-Earth Person

What was your relationship status at the time? Dating casually

How long did you know the person before this hookup? For more than 3 years

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? We’ve known each other for years but we hadn’t really talked until one summer we spent all night at the beach. He was in a 4-year relationship then and I wasn’t sexually intrested in him but we had a very honest conversation. At one point, I noticed that although we’d been talking for two hours he wouldn’t look me in the eyes, I told him that I noticed and I thought it was cute that he was so shy. We left the beach at 6 am and didn’t communicate for two years.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? Two years after that, at the same beach, Isaw him playing a drinking game. At one point, everyone who was single had to drink and he was drinking so I felt bad that he had broken up with his girlfriend. As the night went by, we started talking and laughing and this time we were really flirting which I wasn’t expecting to do. We watched the sunrise and still, nothing happened except that i was sitting on his lap. Then, his hand started to move on my belly touching my navel piercing with a sensual touch. He moved upwards to touch my breast and at that point, we started kissing.

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? It was very strange, I would’ve never expected such a calm guy to make out like that. He was dominant in a very sexy way, he would whisper in your ear if he liked what you were doing to him. He was expressive and kissed passionately. We didn’t do much, just some kissing and touching because there were other people around. We did end up doing more about a week later. This guy was fire in bed and we still see each other often. Every time we do it he wants to lick every inch of my body and it’s so sexy. I consider him a good lover and a very nice person. I don’t know how this will end but, if I had to guess, I would probably say that because we live in different cities we will eventually stop seeing each other when he leaves again.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? No, not even close

Did your partner have an orgasm? No

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? After the hook up we just went to sleep seperately because each of us had our friend in our tents and he gave me his number to call him when I went back to the city. When I woke up the next morning, I almost couldnt believe it had happened but I was sure that I wanted to the rest of the experience. Now I’m glad that I called him when I returned to the city. We have been seeing each other for almost a year now. I’m not saying everything is perfect, both of us have some issues with the fact that we see other people, but one hook up can lead to two people really enjoy spending time together with honesty and respect

Has this hookup changed the way you think about casual sex, sexuality, or yourself in general? Yes, i think if both people want to do it then there is no reason not to. It might lead to something beautiful but if it doesn’t if it was consensual there is no need to feel sorry.

All things considered, how POSITIVE was this experience? Fairly positive

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? Almost every one of my close friends think that by having casual sex you make the other person think that you can’t be in a serious relationship or that you do that really often. I believe that you can have an amazing night by having sex with someone your not in a relationship with and that it is a way of getting to know them and if you like them.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? I really like it. I usually feel like an alien defending casual sex so it’s nice to see that so many people have done it and you can read their stories and relate.
