10 a.m.

I woke up hung-over and texted Jude to confirm the intoxicated ideas we made yesterday at the bar. He is however down to go out watching

RuPaul’s Drag Race

. I fall back asleep.

11 a.m.

Freshly showered, I build my personal getup around a jockstrap. You will never know — Jude and I sometimes have class gender collectively, utilizing Grindr and Scruff to find men to experience around with.


I show up at Jude’s; he’s unshowered and using just sweatpants. Hot.

12:30 p.m.

We are viewing


and cuddling. J and I also will believe semi-platonic roles when we’re by yourself together. We placed a frozen pizza into the range, his hands around my waist.

1 p.m.

I am installing across his lap and feel a boner. We view one another and commence vigorously producing over to the sounds of drag queens lip-syncing.

1:15 p.m.

What’s HAPPENING? We never ever shag alone — it’s also romantic, and Jude works closely with men we dated seriously in school. He smells sort of poor, in the good method.

1:30 p.m.

“Wait, wait, hold off, wait,” according to him, training themselves down me. “I’m not sure relating to this.” He visits the bathroom.

1:32 p.m.

“Fuck it,” according to him as he arrives of the bathroom, climbing back above.

1:40 p.m.

The smoke alarm shouts. The pizza! We cost the kitchen in our lingerie locate an unfortunate, charred hunk of breads in which a cheese cake was previously.

1:50 p.m.

We’re sitting in bed talking about the choices. Jude amazing things if Great Pizza experience of 2016 may be indicative that people should never fuck. We make sure he understands if he isn’t completely about it this may be’s a total no-go. (Guys, consent is crucial!)

2 p.m.

We’re right back regarding couch, cuddling and seeing

Wide City

. Both riled up through the Great We-Almost-Had-Sex-Just-the-Two-of-Us Incident of 2016, we start emailing dudes on gender apps, looking for anyone to arrive more than and strike both of us.

3 p.m.

I get a Grindr message: A waiter from the Chinese place across the street is on their meal and seeking for many fun. After obtaining the okay from Jude, the guy will come. So can we.

3:45 p.m.

Straight back from the chair cackling at Abbi and Ilana’s misadventures. We choose i am the Ilana to his Abbi, and the other way around.

7 p.m.

I have a book from Danny: “Wanna sleep over tonight? ;)” i really do. Danny is a buddy of my own which was previously my publisher at a magazine I worked at many years back. We shag sometimes — just the two of you.

7:45 p.m.

We say good-bye to J and hop on a train towards the West Village. In a coincidental perspective, Danny also familiar with make use of Jude and the aforementioned school ex. Often i do believe regarding three ones spending 40 hrs weekly within five feet of each various other and want i really could’ve been a fly about wall structure. I am pleased that’s no more the fact, though: If Danny and that I ever wound up in a relationship, i’dnot need him in such near distance to my ex (for their own sake, at the least).

8:30 p.m.

Danny and that I are sexting, and that I arrive very slutty. He is in the center of cleaning his business, but it’s game over from the moment he opens the door: i am blowing him practically right away.

9:30 p.m.

We order meal. I am starving, since my lunch was actually ready burning earlier while I happened to be generating shady choices. Needs to have had that waiter bring over food. We cuddle during intercourse, smoking weed and watching character documentaries.

time TWO

11 a.m.

We stir conscious, groping both half-asleep until it becomes a full-blown hookup treatment.


Hand in hand, Danny and that I spend the time wandering around downtown, sipping coffee-and exploring, popping into shops that pique all of our interest, and generally becoming a lovely pair.

3 p.m.

Ugh, its very great. Dan’s great. Smart, funny as hell, charming, driven … easily wasn’t categorically against in an union now, i might probably pursue something a lot more with him.

5 p.m.

We component ways and I also go right to the gym — but I-go back into Danny’s destination after and rest once again.

time THREE

9:30 a.m.

In the office uptown, I have my basic cup of coffee of the day. The combination a good workout and intercourse the night prior to features myself riding large. A co-worker can inform: “And what did


do that weekend?”


I have a fb chat from this pretty man Mike I found at a Friendsgiving party in November. “while no talk!” We know where this is heading. “in the office,” we message. “discover my personal wide variety though, text myself.”

3 p.m.

I get off a conference where some of my personal copy concepts for the next advertisement campaign happened to be shot down. I have a text from Mike waiting for me. “perhaps you have viewed

Useful Magic

?” I make sure he understands I haven’t, and he’s incredulous.

7 p.m.

I appear home, in which We immediately enter into bed. It’s been an extended day. Brand-new book from Mike: “What are you doing tonight? Should watch

Sensible Magic

?” We evaluate where Im actually, mentally, and spiritually, and determine to choose it because I’m youthful or whatever. We react: “… and chill?” According to him, “end up being over in one hour,” and I panic.

7:05 p.m.

Still freaking on because We have 55 minutes to shower, clean my space, choose a cute outfit, and douche before the guy arrives more than. I’m not sure easily


to douche, but we failed to discuss sexual proclivities at length, so I do not know if he’s hoping to top or bottom. However, more straightforward to be secure than sorry.

8 p.m.

We conclude my record eventually to spare (and smoke cigarettes a bowl). The film had been halfway through before hands started coming, exploring the borders of familiarity that we had yet to determine as two family member complete strangers. Before i understand it, pants are off and poppers are on the diet plan.

8 p.m.

Whenever situations start getting hot and heavy, Mike draws out. “Question … ” the guy begins. I will be ready with data. “When’s the last time you used to be tried? I am negative at the time of several times back, and that I’m on PrEP.” I tell him that i am also bad at the time of last week, and while I am not on PrEP, i’ven’t had unprotected sex with any individual since. We choose forgo condoms. We make a mental note to ask my personal physician if PrEP is correct for me personally.

9 p.m.

Topping without a condom is best experience in the entire world besides having your butt consumed and penis sucked as well.

10 p.m.

It had been those types of truly laid-back, silly intimate situations where a couple have remarkable chemistry and are also comfortable performing things such as giving each other raspberries and tickling or collapsing into each other and arbitrarily breathing a parallel deep sound of satisfaction. After I fucked him, he came back the favor. We alternated between casually hanging out and achieving gender on / off for 2 several hours, even though i have now just observed 50 % of

Practical Secret

, I climaxed to their climax.

time FOUR

6 a.m.

Mike’s alarm goes off. I groggily inspect my phone while he climbs up out of bed, naked. The Amount Of Time is actually …

6:09 a.m.

We reveal him my phone. “Look at the time!” We said to him with a giggle, catching their package.

9 a.m.

I get off the practice in the office to a text from Mike. “Had a truly great time yesterday!” Thus performed I. Thinking hits me personally that I kinda want to spend time with him only chilling out, and I also have stressed. I have anxious as I begin willing to carry out clothed tasks with men. My personal final relationship did not conclude well, and the thought of dealing with all that again is sufficient to create myself desire to be a perpetual bachelor.

1 p.m.

At the office knee-deep in work. My personal phone buzzed. “However on for tonight?” DJ texts. Shit. I experienced entirely forgotten. I rapidly determine different factors, such as whether i’ve unintentionally double-booked my night since I have forgot our very own programs (We have maybe not), if I believe sensuous (6.8/10), just in case I believe like having company over (We sleep better with others, anyway). “Sure,” we react; i’m like an asshole having currently terminated on him 2 times prior to.

7 p.m.

I get home, easily made me presentable, acquire cleaned up somewhat. He arrives over and we also’re nude before asking each other just how the particular days had been.

8 p.m.

Initially DJ and I also had intercourse, it absolutely was a shitty circumstance, knowing what I mean. We typed it off as a fluke. I’m not perturbed by that kind of thing; i realize that if you’re placing a dick in an ass, poop is a chance. The second time it happened, I had A Talk with him concerning amazing things of douching. It’s since already been mostly a nonissue.

9 p.m.

DJ additionally hogs water in shower and does not create efficient use of the whole tub duration, cleansing themselves and moving up against me as I’m within the flow. I found me obtaining brief with him: “Discover


much place for you to lather up


behind you.”

10 p.m.

I let him remain over. He is happy he is thus hot.

time FIVE

9:30 a.m.

I get a Gchat from my roomie: “we must talk.” Uh-oh.

10 a.m.

“Exactly who the bang did you buying last night?” Since DJ went from douching inside restroom directly to my personal sleep, i did not see that he’d put aside a big fucking mess … but my roomie did. Excuse me abundantly. I really don’t think he will be coming once again anytime soon. But I’m not against attending his spot.

12:30 p.m.

I’m on Instagram and determine a hot shirtless picture of Malcolm on Instagram. We found on Scruff and fucked once or twice final fall. The land thickened when we ran into both at a buddy’s party and I found out they was once something. It is a tiny globe, but a sex-positive one — the common buddy ended up being entirely cool along with it, and inspired our very own relations.

1 p.m.

I can’t end considering Malcolm’s hairy chest area. We text him: “Hot Instagram. Long-time no chat.”

3 p.m.

No reaction. I shrug it well; possibly even though their ex/my friend is actually cool with us screwing, he’s not, and that is ok.

4 p.m.

“Hey! Thanks, looking good yourself. How ya been? Haven’t observed you since Yom Kippur.” The truth that the guy recalls the very last time we boned helps make myself feel cozy.

5 p.m.

We make ideas for him in the future more than shortly. “What about this evening?” He requires. Though I’m sexy, we be reluctant, thinking about the simple fact that i have had dudes over the last two evenings. But then realize I’m slut-shaming myself. “Sure!”

8:30 p.m.

The guy will come over and before we know it we’re during intercourse inside our lingerie, smoking and just chatting. “would you mind if we don’t attach this evening? It simply hit myself just how tired i’m.” I do not mind after all; he is actually enjoyable just to end up being with.

9 p.m.

Its lovely sometimes to simply cuddle with someone and see TV without sexual objectives.

11 p.m.

We had already been asleep for one hour once I get up to their throat around my dick. I suppose the rubbing between you cuddling naked inspired him. I get difficult immediately, therefore go at it like creatures in the center of the night time.


7:30 a.m.

We leave Malcolm in my bed because the guy doesn’t always have is in the office until afterwards. We’ll enable guys to keep inside my apartment after I’ve kept according to familiarity and trust.

12 p.m.

I am texting with Mike. We are having such a great dialogue that’s been lasting for several days, from the time he Facebook-chatted me. We make plans to spend time on Saturday afternoon and “go to your playground or whatever,” and that I ask yourself whether it’s a night out together.

6:30 p.m.

At happy hour with Jude, writing about the days we have had. He informs me concerning the men he’s been resting with. I temporarily describe my few days’s sexcapades, but can’t prevent making reference to Mike. “Do you actually, like,


him?” Jude requires. “You will find no clue what that is like anymore,” I respond, “thus … I am not sure?” The guy laughs. “Well, think about Danny? I thought you two had some thing unique. Oh my Jesus, TBT to whenever myself, him, and you-know-who worked with each other. Perhaps you have nevertheless maybe not informed him regarding the simple fact that we’ve our fun occasionally?” I haven’t; I do not consider it’s related, and ask yourself if it mindset helps make myself a monster.

7 p.m.

Perhaps I’m impolite for juggling this option and an idiot for attempting to manage the different quantities of closeness that include each. Perhaps I’m brilliant. After all, we moved from becoming a serial monogamous dater to being a one-night-stand aficionado — and have now in some way discovered me hitting an equilibrium. I’m involved in an excellent gang of guys exactly who We have fantastic sex


dialogue with, just who fulfill myself with techniques both bodily and emotional, without fat of monogamy or objectives. And that’s most likely the thing I require now.


9 a.m.

We awake for are employed in an excellent feeling despite becoming a bit hung-over from pleased hour.

12 p.m.

Countless group messages with individuals asking both what the plan is for meeting tonight. I’m a little tired but invest in my favorite bar regarding the lesser eastern part with my best friends.

5 p.m.

We leave the office and mind downtown. I head into the club and my set of closest friends is at our normal table, already two whiskey-gingers deep. Each of them spot myself and scream. Its going to be those types of evenings.

9 p.m.

While I’m bar-hopping I’m texting with Danny, and come up with intends to rest at their apartment on the weekend following the gymnasium, like used to do the other day. “we miss you,” according to him. I am so inebriated We ignore to respond to.

11 p.m.

Three bars afterwards as well as the group of gay guys I’m with tend to be going to an intercourse dance club for some late-night activity. I join them more out of duty than a sudden wish for anonymous play. I wind up perhaps not participating: It is also hot, and I also’m fatigued. I sip a beer about sidelines, seeing men blow one another in the dancing flooring and thinking about the dudes I banged recently whose names I actually understand.

1 a.m.

I’m in bed, setting an alarm to get up the following day to hold around with Mike. We see Danny’s “I miss you” book, but it is too late to reply.
