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’s tall, brown hair, blue eyes, pudgy, cute, sexy and attractive. We met shortly after my 17th birthday and became best friends.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? Several parties later, we drank liquor and smoked pot and made out before having sex.

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? At first things were amazingly awesome. The sex was mind blowing. He introduced me into a whole new world, BDSM. He always loved anal. Couldn’t get off vaginally normally. I thought nothing of it at first. A few years in, he asked for an orgy; so, my good friend and her boyfriend joined us. Surprisingly, he spent the most time with the other man, but we were all rolling on ecstasy that night, I was having fun and didn’t really put two and two together yet. As time progressed, he would only want blow jobs and anal sex, no vaginal. I began to question things at that point. Was there something wrong with me? Was I bad in bed? Did he want to stop our FWB? Cause I did. I felt like I was a bad person. We were just friends for a bit but I caved one nite and gave him a BJ. He asked me to lick his asshole. Before sticking my fingers in it. I stopped right there and asked him if he was bi or gay or just confused because in the 15 years we’d been friends, I’d never seen him with another girl, hell, not even a guy for that matter. He explained he liked vaginal sex at first but vaginas don’t feel right, they have a smell, they look weird and make strange noises; he despises going down on women; he cannot get off to a vagina; he doesn’t like dick per se, he likes to fuck assholes, preferably without a vagina nearby; he’s not gay; he can only get off from a BJ by me and doesn’t want to lose that. I explained I’m not going to service him without being serviced myself, vaginally, so we should just be friends but I’d be happy to be his wingman. Now he is in a happy relationship with a man and I am too.
