Nearly Needing A Defibrillator

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? Katherine was a working girl at one of the legal brothels (“ranches” as they are known) in Nevada. She had medium length dirty blonde hair, a mischievous smile and a rockin’ body, including lips absolutely made for performing fellatio. We’d met briefly on one of my prior visits to that ranch. I knew I wanted to party (the ranch term for any paid sexual encounter) with her as soon as I met her, though I’d already committed to a party with another lady at that point. Reading her profile on the ranch’s web site fixed in my head the idea that I HAD to have her on my next trip to the ranch.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? About two months before my next trip to Vegas, I e-mailed Katherine to make sure she’d be available when I next visited the ranch and we set the date/time of our party after a few back-and-forth messages. When I arrived, as is my custom at the ranch, I grabbed some liquid courage and waited for her at the bar. She didn’t remember me until I jogged her memory with a few details of our prior meeting. Her eyes lit up and I had the feeling I was going to receive some extra special attention as we moved to a booth away from the bar. As we did, I grabbed a bag I’d brought along that I like to call my Boy Scout Brothel Preparedness kit which, aside from a toothbrush, toothpaste and deodorant, contained a small gift for my party partner and a slightly bigger one for the rest of the ladies at the ranch to share. In this case, it was chocolates all around. After I’d given Katherine her box, I moved to put the larger box at the bar, announcing its contents to the other ladies present. Four ladies who were seated at a booth near Katherine and me almost mugged me with thank-yous, so excited were they for the unexpected treat. Katherine eventually pulled me away from the foursome and we returned to our booth, finishing all but two of her chocolates (those, she said, were for after our party,) and continuing our flirtation, including a crazy game of footsie.

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 gave each other oral, had vaginal intercourse in three positions (missionary, cowgirl, doggy style) with lots of kissing, fondling and sucking. She was the aggressor, nearly pinning me to the bed as she moved to perform oral on me. We were going at it like the last two people on earth. For me, it was nearly an out of body experience. We didn’t do too much talking … much too occupied with other things. It ended with her climbing on top of me, whispering silly things in my ear and playing with my chest hair.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, one

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, one

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 returned to the bar to chat until it was time for me to say goodbye. The next morning I woke up with the biggest stupidest grin on my face, reliving the prior day’s encounter and thinking of when my next trip to the ranch and party with Katherine would be. Even though I learned she left the prostitution business when I began planning my next Vegas vacation, I still look back and, to this day, think of her very fondly since she, for a brief two hours or so, made me feel the way I’d like to feel permanently — happy, silly, excited, etc.

To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? There were two or three working girls sitting at the bar when we returned. One of them, seeing my labored breathing and irregular strides, asked me if I needed some assistance. I replied, “I feel like I might need a defibrillator. And I’m gonna have her pay for it,” pointing to Katherine. All the women laughed loudly, smiled and nodded their heads at each other, silently confirming “Another happy customer.” They didn’t know how right they were.

Has this hookup changed the way you think about casual sex, sexuality, or yourself in general? It convinced me that I’m much more interested in sex than I figured, considering that I’d only lost my virginity at age 38

All things considered, how POSITIVE was this experience? Very 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? If it weren’t for casual sex (and the Nevada brothels, in particular) I’m sure I’d be even more mentally mucked up than I already am. As long it’s done with protection, I see no big problems with casual sex. Our society’s antiquated views about it (and sex in general) really have to change.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? It’s very informative and interesting to read others’ viewpoints about casual sex. I’d hope somebody would be able to use the Project to start changing our country’s beliefs about sex generally.
