Italian adventure

How long ago did this hookup happen? 1993

How would you best classify this hookup? Holiday fling

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 Italian, maybe about 5’7, brown hair and brown eyes.  We met at the Youth Hostel.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? I was traveling across Europe and met some Australian girls heading in the same direction as myself.  We all got the late water taxi to Venice and arrived at the Venice Youth Hostel around 11pm.. Despite the lateness, the hostel was pumping, people everywhere. I quickly got acquainted with fellow backpackers.  Somehow, I got chatting to Giovanni, a journalist for the Verona Times.  He offered me joint and said he was leaving in the morning to go to Trieste.  If I was interested, to be in foyer for 7 am.  Yep, I was and I was there as he had asked.  We drove to Trieste, maybe a couple of  hours drive. I had never gone in the car of someone I didn’t know, but felt safe.

What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? Did you have an orgasm? Did your partner(s)? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? During the drive, we smoked pot, with me being the runner for tobacco! We stopped in the countryside for a break, and engaged in vaginal and oral sex.  We made it to Trieste, where we stayed in the youth hostel there and had sex. In all honesty, I can’t remember if either of us orgasmed. At a guess, I would say he did, but not me.

What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy? Did you discuss STI history? No precautions

What were your REASONS for having this hookup? Something different, my first overseas trip, and I guess following the rites of passage

Were alcohol or drugs involved? If so, how much? Maybe a bit of pot and a few beers, nothing too intoxicating.

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? He drove back to Verona for work and I carried on my travels.  There were no expectations at all on either part.

To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? no one

Was this a consensual and/or wanted experience for you? For your partner? Consensual for both

Do you regret this hookup? If so, why? no

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 thing – location and adventure, nothing bad to say.  Apart from being young and naïve at the time, all was good.

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

All things considered, how NEGATIVE was this experience? Not at all negative
