My Friend’s Ex

How long ago did this hookup happen? Six Months

What was your relationship status at the time? Single

How would you best classify this hookup? One-night stand

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? His name was Darius, a handsome African American man in his early thirties. He was tall, fit and quite muscular and also quite intelligent. I actually knew him quite well, he had dated a close friend and former roommate of mine Angie for nearly three years. I had always thought he was attractive but never had quite considered him a sexual partner before this.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? I was at a party with a number of friends and friends of friends and so on. I hadn’t seen Darius since he and Angie had a rather epic blowup shortly before their split. I was also recently single at the time, having just split from a boyfriend three months prior. At the party I had talked with a few friends and had a beer when Darius arrived.
I had said hi and we had started talking. I had always liked Darius and even Angie admits she was the reason for their split (she had cheated). One thing led to another and he and I ended up outside making out and it felt good to have someone’s hands on me again.

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 ended up back at his place since it was close. Darius pretty much tore my clothes off and bent me over a table and thrust himself into me. It felt great being with someone again and he fucked me hard and came inside me.
Afterwards we moved to his bedroom and chatted a bit and he rubbed my pussy and played with my breasts and felt me up a bit. I ended up mounting him after a bit and riding him until I came and he finished inside me again and he had his hands all over me and I kept leaning forward to kiss him. Afterwards we fell asleep.
In the morning I awoke face down with a bad headache. Darius was asleep and I grabbed a shower and when I got out he offered me breakfast and then a ride back to my place. I have to say it was a great night and I rather enjoyed myself.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, more than one

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? We texted back and forth a bit and some if it was pretty steamy. He admitted he had always kind of liked me. I felt a lot better about myself and my breakup after. In the end Darius and I decided that because of his long history with Angie and because he was her ex that perusing anything further than a single night was not a good idea.
