As a college student, one of the biggest insecurities we have is being good in bed.
How do we know if we are? Well, in most cases, the person you're with will tell you you are (whether they lie or not is up to them) and/or it will somehow yet unsurprisingly get back to you.
And in my case, I sure as hell hope that this story won't circulate throughout my town, finding its way to me. I'm sharing it with you though to let you know that you're not alone; we all have embarrassing moments while getting groovy. We're young and dumb sometimes, and we learn from our mistakes. Or so I like to think.
After returning home from an eventful school year, I met up with a good friend. We hooked up in the past, and we caught up after not seeing each other for a while. It was nice talking at one of our favorite restaurants and hanging out.
Although we didn't plan on spending the night together (or hooking up), we ended up in my bed wrapped up in each other's arms into what led to some good ole fashion Netflix & Chill. Because we had been together before, we knew each other's weaknesses. Next thing I knew I was transported to a year ago.
Our hookup was comfortable and fun. I felt safe and good about it. But I wasn't ready for round two as fast as my friend was. So I did the work as he got to lie down and relax. Play hard, work harder, am I right?
It'd been a little while since I went down, and I'm not gonna lie, I felt a little awkward - rusty even. I must've gotten in my head (no pun intended) about maintain a rhythm swallowing, because before I knew it, there was saliva on his hip and a small pile of vomit on the pillow next to it. FML.
I was beyond embarrassed, and he went soft literally seconds after. I felt so bad and told him it wasn't his fault. My gag reflex just wasn't at its prime in that moment. It truly was a physical reflex! I had to give him a shirt and hopped into the shower ASAP, trying to forget what just happened.
He left shortly after I cleaned up. Yes, I did have to shampoo twice.
We haven't hooked up since, but it's one of the most memorable hookups yet. My advice to my fellow gal pals is to seriously know your limits when it comes to going down town. I tried to impress him by going further than I could, and it truly bit me in the ass.
Be grateful boys; we're doing you the favor.
We all have our moments, and remember that even if you do screw up: what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
