Love Is In The Air

How long ago did this hookup happen? 7 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’ll name my sexual partner Paul for sake of anonymity. I met Paul at a friend’s wedding weekend. Prior to the wedding, the bride and groom held an event so everyone going to their wedding could schmooze and meet one another. I remember immediately thinking Paul was an attractive man, but did not think too much of it until he came on to me later in the evening after hours of wine tasting and then drinking at a bar. He attempted to kiss me, but I rejected it. I suppose I was playing hard to get. I was definitely liking him more the more we talked and shared stories.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? The next night was the wedding ceremony and love was in the air. We were both single and flirting with each other and I asked if he wanted to come back to the house I was staying at. There was no planning involved. I would say he initially instigated it. We got back to my friend’s house and talked for a while before he made a move.

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? Well, it was all over once he took his shirt off. He was in incredible shape and I immediately got turned on. We were making out and then I started to go down on him. He pulled me up towards him and we passionately made out more before he entered me (after he put on a condom – safety first!). I hadn’t had sex in a year before that, so I remember feeling a lot of things emotionally and physically. He was incredibly sweet and gentle and we fell asleep cuddling.

Did you have an orgasm? Did your partner(s)? He did, I didn’t.

What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy? Did you discuss STI history? Condom. Nope.

What were your REASONS for having this hookup? Both of us were very attracted to one another. We were both drinking and surrounded by the theme of love.

Were alcohol or drugs involved? If so, how much? Open bar – we weren’t sober.

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 remember feeling mostly good about it after. The other part of me was a little sad because I had just spent the previous few days with him and was leaving not knowing if we’d ever cross paths again. A couple months later we did (it’ll happen when you have mutual friends) and we hooked up again, but only kissing involved this time. I haven’t seen or spoken to Paul in over 5 months, but only have positive feelings when I think about him.

To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? All my friends. They thought it was great.

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

Do you regret this hookup? If so, why? Not at all.

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? The best thing: he was wildly hot, and our bodies felt right together. He also gave me lots of cuddles after, which I adore and in a strange way it makes me feel more respected.

The worst thing: mornings are always a little awkward after a one-night stand.

I have a pretty liberal view on sex and don’t think it changed my perspective in any way.

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

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