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 had been hooking up a lot with a girl in my dorm building and she would tell me who else she was sleeping with. She was very aggressive and seductive so it was quite a lot of people but that’s another story. One of her partners was “Leila,” a tiny, adorable Palestinian girl. She was very femme and not “out” at all. I think besides the two of them I was the only one who knew about her. I would see Leila hook up with guys at parties and the whole time I would just picture my sex friend fucking her with her strap-on, which I knew Leila enjoyed. Leila and I didn’t talk much at first, but when I passed her in the hall she would smile at me in a way that told me either she knew about me and our mutual friend, or she wanted me. Either way, I developed a crush on her very quickly.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? On Thanksgiving weekend the dorm was basically empty except for a few people, including Leila and me (my family was in Iran and hers were in Lebanon, so we had no place to go). It was completely empty and when we ran into each other, we both kind of laughed because each of us knew why the other was still there. But I think it was also because we were excited by the chance to have each other alone (in hindsight that seems pretty obvious). We mixed some drinks in the common area in the afternoon on that Saturday and, without wasting much time, we were making out on the couch. She started getting nervous about being spotted so I invited her back to my room.

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? I knew from my friend that she liked being dominated so I enjoyed getting to play the aggressive role for once. I got her clothes off as soon as my door was shut and I pressed her against the wall and kissed her neck while I fingered her clit. She got really limp and let out these long moans and her tiny hands held on tight to my waist, which I found really hot. I got on my knees and started eating her until she came, standing there at my door, her hands over her mouth to stop from making too much noise. We got in bed and made out slowly as she gradually got my clothes off, and she spent a while just sucking slowly on my tits, which got me really wet. I asked her if I could sit on her (my favorite thing) and she smiled and told me she loved that so I straddled her while she licked my pussy. She seemed to really love my ass as she kept squeezing it as hard as she could while she licked. It was never too hard and eventually, I was so turned on by how much she was into me that I came while I was sitting on her. She continued to lick me slowly as I came until she was soaking wet. After cuddling for a bit we snuck off to the showers and hooked up again while we showered.

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? She actually slept over in my room and we hooked up again the next morning and for the rest of the weekend until everyone got back. It was just fun but I think we had more of a connection since we’re both from the Middle East and we understood each other. We continued to hook up and we probably will again. I just haven’t seen her in a while.
