Indelible Night

How long ago did this hookup happen? 3 months ago

How would you best classify this hookup (e.g., one-night stand, fuck-buddies, friends-with-benefits, booty call, sex with an ex, short fling; paid sex…)? one-night stand

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 went to French Riviera by myself this summer and stayed in Nice for 3 days. I meet him on Tinder on the last night in Nice because I wanted to find someone to talk to.

He is younger than me but actually very mature. He was the typical french guy, sweet and kind but a little shy. I felt the butterfly immediately when I saw him because his eyes are so beautiful.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We met at the beach and stayed at the beach for a couple of hours, then went to a bar. We left the bar pretty soon because it was way too loud there. On our way back to the beach, he held my hand and we started to make out on the beach for a while and chat during that ’til 5 I guess. After that, he drove me to his apartment because he decided to drive me to the airport first before he went to work.

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 was almost 6 in the morning when we got to his apartment. The sex wasn’t that good to be honest because we were both too tired but the cuddling was sweet, I had a short but good nap.

Did you have an orgasm? Did your partner(s)? I didn’t. He probably did. He kept speaking in French in bed, so I am not really sure.

What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy? Did you discuss STI history? Not really

What were your REASONS for having this hookup? At first I just wanted to have someone to talk to and did not expect the sex at all because his place is 20 minutes away from Nice. When we on the beach, I put a rock on his forehead for fun and he held that rock for the whole night and took it home…that really melted my heart.

Were alcohol or drugs involved? If so, how much?: one Gin and Tonic for both of us

What happened AFTER the hookup? How did you feel about it? What are your expectations/hopes for the future with this person? How do you feel about them now? I left Nice the second morning. When he left the airport I cried like a baby. We messaged each other on Facebook everyday for about 2 weeks, but sad messages mostly. Now he is in the US and I’m in China, I only wish him the very best, wish him to be happy. He gave me the most wonderful night I will never forget.

To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? My best girlfriends; they kind of felt sorry for me.

Was this a consensual and/or wanted experience for you? For your partner? Yes, of course.

Do you regret this hookup? If so, why?  Not at all. It was probably the most wonderful night in my life.

What was the BEST thing about this hookup? How about the WORST? Has this hookup changed the way you think about casual sex, sexuality, or yourself in general? Best: I finally had someone in my life that I can keep talking to after I slept with or had relationship with. I’ve got a beautiful memory that I’ll keep forever. Worst: to be honest, it pained me a little to say goodbye. I felt very sad every time he texted me after that. Casual sex could be beautiful but definitely leads to heart break.

All things considered, how POSITIVE was this experience? Very positive

All things considered, how NEGATIVE was this experience? A little negative
