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? I was volunteering with a Music festival and met him on the final day – we were working together. He was totally my type, tall-ish, brunette, beard, funny guy, into music (typical I know). I was definitely attracted to him right off the bat and I could tell he felt the same about me.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We met up at the Music festival’s closing party that night, which involved a lot of drinking. I invited him but he initiated the first kiss.

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 did everything. I sat on his face, gave him head and had intercourse. We were both really into it and if I can recall correctly – it was rough and there was a lot of dirty talk involved.

Did your partner have an orgasm? I don’t know

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? Oh man. The morning after I was supposed to be back at my hotel for 8AM to leave with my classmates (this was my final year of college and we all volunteered in the festival). I guess I shut my alarm off when it initially went off because I woke up to 10 missed calls from my classmates AND my teacher. Finally my teacher reached me and said he was coming to pick me up because a bus full of FIFTY students were waiting on me. I left buddy’s hotel room in a hurry – in my dress and ripped tights from the night before (along with my underwear in my purse) and had to get in the car with my teacher who knew exactly what had happened. Anyway, my classmates had packed my bag for me.. and when I walked on the bus you better believe I was greeted by the applause of fifty students. Humiliating but I also owned it like a bad ass. I also realized I had left my fav leather jacket in the hotel room with my hookup, who I messaged to bring it back but he did not I had to call the hotel and have to pay for the shipping back to my city myself. Good times.

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 casual sex – as long as proper protection is involved – is great. There doesn’t always need to be a huge emotional attachment to each hookup, sometimes you just need to get your rocks off, both men and women! I think women need to stop ‘slut shaming’ other women, men too, but women need to stand together and acknowledge the fact that casual sex is a normal, healthy activity to partake in.

What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? I think it’s awesome
