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 met him from Tinder, so I didn’t know him well, but from our conversation he seemed normal. He was tall, with a really cute face, short blond curly hair, sporty and casually well dressed and I thought maybe a bit out of my league. I had no unusual feelings about him before the hookup, I had no big expectations or anything but hoped he won’t be creepy.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? It begin as a normal date, we went for drinks, had fun, had okay conversation, ate ice cream, fooled around, walked through the city and then to his place. No planning was involved, things just turned out this way, and we both wanted to hook up.

He went down on me, I went down on him, and we had vaginal intercourse. I felt good during it, he was a good lover. After it we had small talk, I slept there, I went down on him in the morning, we had a short intercourse but neither of us came. We had breakfast, he came with me to the metrostation we kissed and that was it.

It was like maybe we could meet, he said he’d write me and I hoped he would because it was really fun, and I thought we could do it another time too. Then, I texted him. He replied very shortly and neutrally and then blocked me on WhatsApp, which was weird and felt bad and rude, as I only asked, “What’s up?” Now it’s just a good memory of a pretty good night, but no other feelings – I’m just a bit annoyed because of the blocking thing,which sucks.

Has this hookup changed the way you think about casual sex, sexuality, or yourself in general? I feel more confident about myself, as at the beginning I felt he was out of my league , but with time I just didn’t care and enjoyed myself and the date. I think I learned I have to try not to take it too seriously when it seems at hookups as the other person likes me, because I can never know what they really think, and then I just get hurt at the end, so I try to keep more emotional distance during hookups.
All things considered, how POSITIVE was this experience? Fairly positive

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 is really good and shouldn’t be seen as bad or unresponsible. I think there is still a stigma on casual sex, which makes me feel sometimes I am doing something wrong or something like that, even if I know it’s not wrong and I can do whatever I want and feels good for me.
What do you think about the Casual Sex Project? I find the Casual Sex Project really good, because it gives an insight of what is happening with others and that many have similar stories and shows many different experiences which shows how different people are in their sexual lives.
