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? Carol is slightly taller than me with long brown curly hair. She has a cute face and is thin and fit with large breasts. We met on Tinder a little less than 2 years ago and dated for a few months, but I broke it off because our personalities don’t mesh in the way that I’d like. However, the sex was always great. We stopped being exclusive and had sex for a few months after breaking up until I began seeing someone else exclusively. That relationship ended a few months ago and I was feeling lonely so I texted her to see how she had been as we hadn’t talked since our sexual relationship ended. My last relationship ended because of intimacy problems, and I was hoping to have better sex than I had for months. Carol almost immediately caught on that I wanted sex and enthusiastically did too. She came over within an hour of us talking.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? The hookup happened at my house. Not much planning was involved. I asked her how she had been over text and we soon got to talking about our past sexual history positively. She said she’d like to do it again sometime, I told her I was free now and she came over shortly after. We had a drink and talked and then hooked up.

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? Carol was a great lover. She was very flirty and sexy. I felt great during it because in my most recent relationship the sex was not very good and it was nice in the moment to be with someone different and more sexually adept. We started making out on the couch with heavy petting. We kissed, bit, and sucked each others necks and ears. I took off her top and mine and fondled and kissed her breasts, then performed fellatio on her and analingus for about 20 minutes until she came. She then took off my pants and performed fellatio on me for about 20 minutes. She was rougher and better at it than she used to be; gagging herself on me, licking on my perineum and balls, and she spit on her breasts and I thrusted my penis between them for awhile. After I came, we relaxed and talked about how great it was for about 30 minutes before performing fellatio on one another again and then having penetrative sex. We started in missionary, then she moved her legs to the side, then cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, and finished with doggystyle. We again talked about how great the sex was, talked about how continuing to be single was what we both wanted and established that neither of us wanted more than a friends with benefits relationship going forward. She left shortly after.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, more than one

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, multiple

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? We have hooked up about twice a week since. We talk dirty through text and are each exploring our kinks further than we did in the past. Although we do hang out a bit beyond the sex, I think we are both agreed that is the relationship’s primary function. I felt pretty good about it afterwards, but I am still adjusting to not being in a serious relationship and sex without love is less appealing to me than sex within a committed relationship.
