Midnight in Paris

How long ago did this hookup happen? five years

How would you best classify this hookup? Group sex

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? Partners were a new couple, slightly older, smart, interested in exploring their sexuality together. Both had come out of long term relationships and wanted to engage in new things. We met at a French bistro, all of us had lived in Paris for an extended period.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? They posted an advertisement. There was minimal planning, checking off of certain boxes (STI history, compatibility, getting to know you). I get occasional hall passes, as my partner has no desire.

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? We started on their balcony, watching the sunset and an exhibitionist neighbor (location was in the heart of the city), going at it. Ironic, considering what we had planned.

At first, it was mostly foreplay. Lots of kissing, touching, caressing, exploring each other with our hands and mouths. From there, it evolved into variations on MFM for the course of a few hours. Sometimes one of the males would bow out and watch. It felt phenomenal during, there was such a high and the creativity and our similar interests, experiences made it more enjoyable. They were terrific partners. It ended with a long kiss, late at night.

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? Was on a high for several days. Expectations were that we could set up regularly, my primary partner was open to it. We met a few times, but the couple ended up moving and while we kept in touch, never got another opportunity.

I remember them fondly, they opened up new experiences for me and I them.
