How long ago did this hookup happen? 15 years

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…)? Paid sex

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 was working downtown for a big corporation in the financial district.  There are a lot of lunch places around there, little sandwich shops, ethnic food, etc. especially down some of the little alleys that parallel the major cross streets.
I noticed along one alley that there were several  places that just had a closed door with a small sign that said “Please enter”.  I did figure out that they must be whorehouses, but at the time, I did not know they were Asian Massage Parlors or what the deal was.  I got it in my mind to try one of these places, and being pre-internet, there were really no resources for research.  You just had to wing it, and know that you had to set your expectations to deal with an occasional bad experience.
One day, I left work an hour early and headed over to a place that I learned afterwards went by Happiness Spa.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? I left work an hour early, it was summer and quite muggy out.  I joined the crowds on the street and turned down the alley and headed for Happiness, in the middle of the block.  I was nervous, and walked past the place and back several times, did not want to run into someone leaving or going in at the same time as me.  However, did not want to seem conspicuous by going back and forth a gazillion times, so I got my nerve up and went up the 3 steps to the tiny landing and the door.  I noticed a small camera tucked in the corner of the awning.  I turned the door door knob and stepped in.  Had not expeced to find myself inside a tiny vestibule, with barely enough room to close the door behind me.  I knocked on the inner door. I am sure someone checked me out through the peephole before the door swung open slowly.  I was in a small lobby with a reception desk, a couple of chairs and a curtain hiding another room beyond.  It was dim, but I could see that a 50ish Asian woman had let me in.  “First time here?”  I nodded.  She explained $50 for the house, $100 for the girl.  I gave her $50 and she held the curtain open and gestured me through.  There was a lot of giggling and a flurry of movement as about 6-7 girls made way for me to come in.  “Please sit.”  I sat on an old couch, and introductions were made.  Then everyone, including the mamasan fell quiet.  I pointed to a cute girl in a yellow bikini, and they all laughed and pushed her towards me.

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? Mai took my hand, peeked out from behind the curtain to make sure the coast was clear and led me up a set of stairs.  We went down a corridor with various pieces of dusty exercise equipment and she opened a door to a small bedroom with a single bed, lit by a small bedside lamp with a pink bulb.  I didn’t know what to do, but Mai, who still had me by the hand, took my briefcase, set it against the wall, and proceeded to undress me, starting with my tie. She put a robe on me that she took from a hook, kneeled down and put a pair of disposable slippers on my feet, took my hand again and led me back out in the corridor.  We went to a large completely tiled bathroom at the end of the hall.  Mai took off my robe and had me lie on a large padded vinyl covered massage table.  The table was warm and wet, as Mai had washed and rinsed it when we first came into the room.  This was my introduction to the table shower, as Mai scrubbed and washed me, top to bottom and all the creases. I almost fell asleep, it was so relaxing.
Mai tugged my arm, indicating that I should stand up.  She dried me off, on went the robe and slippers and we headed back down the corridor.
Back in the bedroom, Mai had me lie down on the bed, clambered on, straddled me and started in on a pretty professional massage.  When she got to my thighs, she parted my legs, and suddenly I felt her her warm breath between my buttocks.  I was quite surprised when she started to lick my anus.  Glad I’m a go-with-the-flow kind of guy, I found myself enjoying it immensely, with the resultant robust erection.  Mai turned my over, put a rubber on and slowly inserted my penis between her legs.  She was very tight, and the novelty of the situation almost had me coming immediately.  The rest of the sex is blur in my memory, but the intimacy and the smallness and delicacy of her body remain with me today.

Did you have an orgasm? Did your partner(s)? After I orgasmed, Mai cleaned me up with a warm washcloth and dressed me.  She even insisted on putting my shoes on and tying the laces.  With a big smile, she led me down the stairs and let me out the door.
Back on the street, the world looked little changed.  Mentally, though, I realized that I had expected a sleazy kind of experience, but I stepped out on a summer evening freshly bathed, massaged and fucked.  I felt pampered.

What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy? Did you discuss STI history? Condom use for intercourse, none for the blow job.  There was not much discussion of anything due to the language difference.

What were your REASONS for having this hookup? Adventure

Were alcohol or drugs involved? If so, how much? None

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 Happiness Spa and headed home on my regular train.  Had about 45 min. to ruminate about my experience, which was definitely out of the ordinary for me.  I had never given much thought to what I now realized is a pretty big subculture.  A subculture that I am sure was not invented in the US, but was imported from Asia, leading me to the conclusion that it must be a pretty common over there.  The girl?  I used to remember her “name”, but I still remember her yellow bikini, her slim body and her sweet manner.

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 as far as I could tell.  I have read about trafficking, but the gaggle of laughing ladies and the mamasan seemed like a big happy family to me.

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? The best thing about this hookup was the feeling of being served.  I learned that it was OK to be pleasured and not have guilt about reciprocity.  In this instance, the money was the reciprocity, and was freeing.  In my “civilian” relationships, I learned to not be too concerned about pleasing, and let the pleasure flow back and forth.

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

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