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? He was a very handsome younger guy I met at a conference I attended in October of last year. We had never met before. Before getting together I thought he was attractive but never thought about hooking up.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? WE had dinner together that evening as friends and had a few drinks. I never intended it anything other than having dinner. He instigated it by inviting me into his room for another drink because the conference we were attending was over the next morning and we would be going our separate ways..

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? It started with him giving me a kiss on the cheek. He knew I was married so I was surprised but also flattered since he was several years younger. I have been married 21 years and never had given a thought of having an affair. Other than my husband I had only had sex with one other guy who took my virginity when I was 15. When he kissed me again on the lips I went along with it thinking it would not go any further. I guess the drinks had me a little relaxed and before long we were on the bed with one thing leading to another from playing with my tits to foreplay with his fingers before he finally was gentleman enough to ask if he could have sex with me. I told him I shouldn’t but he began pulling my panties off and I got excited. When he took his pants and shorts off he laid down between my legs. I started to tell he he needed to use a condom because I wasn’t on birth control but before I could say anything he was in me. Once he was that far I didn’t want to stop because the was great. I did tell him I wasn’t on birth control so if he wanted to stop but didn’t stop. The sex was awesome and when he came I had an orgasm which made it even better.

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 took our time ending it with him staying hard in me for several minutes while we talked. He joked (maybe not) about how it would be to get a married women in bed and knock her up too. I told him that was my only concern. The next day I did feel guilty and especially the fact that I let him have the chance to get me pregnant which thankfully didn’t happen. We have talked a few times since but that is all that’s as far as it will go.
