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? This particular partner, we will call “Barbae”. He is absolutely gorgeous! Tall, dark and handsome. He has flawless, well oiled, brown skin. Chocolate is new for me and I did not know him very well when we hooked up. We had a few dates and about 6 interactions before engaging in sexual intercourse. We met at the bar. I felt good about him and found him very intriguing. When we met initially, I was out with my mother-in-love for her birthday. He was dressed casually, in work clothes – nothing too sexy to me. I went out with zero intentions of finding a lover. We chatted briefly while I was cashing out my transition and he wrote his number on my receipt and asked me for my hand and left it on there, too. My mom spotted him first: She did good!

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? After a very upsetting, devastating, and heartbreaking breakup with my toxic ex, something new, seemed like a breath of fresh air – but I was too much in my head about it. Although my ex and I were broken up, we still had sex and I was tired of it. I still needed sex, but did not want it from just anybody. After 4 months of celibacy, I did not need this type of pressure or distraction, but it been one of the best sexual experiences to date. We went out one night, kissed all night and came home for the grand finale. When coming in my door, he noticed that the handle was loose and that the screen door slammed kind of hard. He went to this car for his tools and quickly repaired it. Call me easy, but I was wet after that. My ex had seen the condition of that door for months and never did a thing. The first time led to many more, so it’s kind of a blur – but it’s always good. I learned so much about myself and body in this experience. “GET OUT YOUR HEAD” especially in your business, relationships, and decisions.

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? Our sexscapades were never planned, but I can say for me, I knew sex was on the table from the very beginning. I made that decision early on. I think most women make that decision early on. WE BE KNOWING! We’ve hooked up many times, even at the bar, but my house was the location most times. He is an amazing kisser and it does something to my core. We were in sync, our bodies were perfectly aligned. and I felt a deep connection in the bed. Out of the bed is still to be determined, but it was always a good time. I just haven’t focused on anything besides the bedroom and self preservation for now. I was not ready to complicate things. I do not give head, but he made me want to. I am still working on myself in the area. You know, always IN MY HEAD! I felt good. He makes sure that I am good and it is working out well. It hasn’t ended, I can’t call it – but I do not see anything permanent. Although, it is good. I am in my head, again.
