This One Time At Summer Camp

How long ago did this hookup happen? 2 years ago

How would you best classify this hookup? 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? He was a tall guy, with a muss of brown hair and a huge goofy mouth that opened all the way when he laughed. I’ll call him David. We were counselors at separate camps that were a mile away from each other on a lake. The two camps merged for counselor events (which basically happened every night) and we’d been hanging out and becoming good friends. I was in a relationship for most of the summer, so I wasn’t looking for anything, but he was very flirty towards me anyway.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? I broke up with my boyfriend one week before camp ended, for reasons completely unrelated to David. However, being newly single of course sent me on a mission for rebound sex. I’d only ever had sex with my ex, so I wanted a palette cleanser for before I went home. The night of the break up, I went to the other camp to spend time with my friends there. They all consoled me, including David, who got me high as a sort of consolation gift. We then texted for the next few days about how he was crazy attracted to me and that I’d been his dream girl all summer. This was incredibly flattering, since he’s a very attractive guy. So, we decided to spend the last night together in his tent, after all the campers had left and before all us counselors went home.

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? We spent that evening apart mostly, hanging out with our respective groups and getting a little drunk around the huge bonfire some of the guys had built for the final party. Finally, around 11, David found me and we went back to his tent. He’d pushed two of the beds together so that it was basically a queen-sized mattress, which was really thoughtful (the beds are tiny). He went down on me for a few minutes before fucking me in several different positions. Lengthy fucks were never really common with my ex, so I was madly impressed by the 10+ minutes he held out (I’m very aware now that that is more the norm, thank god). After, we cuddled for a while (well, he cuddled me – I’m not big on cuddling) and then he put on porn on his laptop for a while and we 69ed for a while. He told me I was welcome to stay over, but I wanted to spend the last night in my own bed, so I left around 3 AM. By that time it was raining, so he walked with me to suffer through it as well. We had a great conversation on the way and he kissed me goodnight/goodbye when we got to my camp.

Did you have an orgasm? Did your partner(s)? I almost never orgasm at the hands of others, but I get the most pleasure from making my partner climax, so I was more than satisfied by getting him to come twice in just a couple hours.

What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy? Did you discuss STI history? We used a condom. I’d only been with one guy before and we’d been exclusive, so there were no worries STI-wise for me. He also had only slept with one person (whom I knew), so there was no fear.

What were your REASONS for having this hookup? I wanted to get over my ex and David was a very good friend whom I found myself sexually attracted to once I was out of my relationship.

Were alcohol or drugs involved? If so, how much? We’d both had several sips from friends’ bottles of shitty mixed drinks, but nothing to get us more than lightly tipsy.

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 went home feeling very good about the whole thing. He went to college in Connecticut, so I didn’t expect anything to happen after – I wouldn’t have wanted anything else, anyway. The unfortunate part of the story didn’t come to light until next year, when I visited the camp for 4th of July and Jacqueline, the other girl he’d slept with that summer, wasn’t speaking to me. I found out from a friend that they had actually been very close the year before and she’d seen me sleeping with him after she’d left as a stabbing in the back. David had originally told me they’d just been a casual thing, and that made me seriously question his judgment and behavior. However, I apologized to Jacqueline and explained that I didn’t know the whole story. David also apologized for it all, so I feel like that past was cleared up quickly.

To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? I told most of my friends. Several were shocked and slightly judgmental, simply because we were still in high school and they hadn’t really had any serious sexual encounters yet. Still, though, the general consensus was a “good for you” attitude. I did also tell my ex when we eventually got back together a few months later. It created an odd dynamic in the relationship for a bit, since we were no longer each other’s one and only’s.

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

Do you regret this hookup? If so, why? Not in the slightest.

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 was getting more experience from someone slightly more experienced than me. It was also pretty cool doing it basically outside, only a tarp between us and the rest of the world. The worst was all the shit that came up between me and Jacqueline and then her friends once they’d heard the story. That I could have done without.

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

All things considered, how NEGATIVE was this experience? A little negative
