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? Went to a Grateful Dead concert. Did acid. Gave driver bJ on the way home, then fucked guys I didn’t know the names of. Found it extremely interesting.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We were all together and high. We all instigated it together, men and women. High point of investigatory sex for a 22 year old. Never sorry.

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? They were young guys. They got off in 30 seconds. The women were just teasing them and giving bj’s and getting laid. Not one woman had an orgasm. I am always on the outside of my sexual encounters, on serving them a if I am someone else. I have become an amateur sexual social anthropologist.

Anything else you want to add about this hookup? There is a book written by 2 women who decided to lay all the men they could in one year, as an experiment, and then write about it. Have you read the book?

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? I think for people that can handle it and consent to it, and protect themselves from disease–it’s a fine way to experiment. Just don’t think the partner “loves you”! LOL!

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? Great idea!
