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? She was 10 years younger but of similar intelligence. We met for lunch from talking through Tinder at first. After our first meeting and a goodbye kiss from me, our second meeting was going to be sexually oriented. Before we hooked up I felt very comfortable with her, as we had shared many similar things about our personal life and previous relationships.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? It happened in my apartment bedroom. There was sexual chemistry from the start of our second meeting. We planned on “hanging out/Netflix and chill” for a couple hours before I had to leave for work. Mutual desire was obvious to me. I instigated the hookup.

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? As she sat on my bed after a particularly passionate conversation between us, I laid down beside her casually. I invited her to cozy up and she did happily. I wrapped my arm around her so she could lay on my chest. I made a move to kiss her and we made out passionately. She was very ‘touchy-feely’ and had obviously been looking forward to my advance. She did not want to engage in actual sex, as it was our second meeting, but after intense making out and dry humping, she eventually felt my erection and became highly aroused. She wanted to see my penis and after touching and playing she engaged in oral sex. The blowjob was amazing and I came on her breasts after 15 minutes or so. We cleaned up and she gave me a ride to work.

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, one

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? The experience was mutually great. The sexual attraction and natural chemistry between us was solidified. Our next encounter would obviously involve passionate sex. I hoped to explore our sexuality together more, as she was the most exciting girl I had ever been with as well as my first lay in over 6 months. We are currently great friends and still very sexually active with one another. There is a possibility for a long-term relationship in the future, but for now we are amazing fuck-buddies and friends.

Anything else you want to add about this hookup? We have progressed to sex several times a week and the orgasms for her are amazing. She has introduced me to rough sex techniques and we’ve found a happy equilibrium to sexual gratification as well as an intimate friendship. Not sure where this is going but I’m down for the ride.

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 it can be enriching personally in a limited capacity but is too easy to abuse. When both parties are fully engaged and having true fun, it can be very worthwhile. I have not had any negative casual sex experiences yet in my life, but I do notice how others I know get hurt emotionally quite often through carelessness.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? It is an important social study of our time.
