New York’s Sex Diaries series asks unknown city dwellers to record a week in their sex lives — with comic, tragic, mostly sexy, and always divulgence results. This week, a 24-year-old late bloomer, straight, Greenpoint, journalist.


10:00 a.m. Sooooo prepared for this week to be over. we brief prohibited coffee on my palm walking into work, carrying 3 receptacle bags of God-knows-what. Why do we have so many receptacle bags?

10:15 a.m. I’m a 24-year-old lady vital in New York. But we was a very late bloomer. we lived during home yet college in a regressive Catholic family. Lost my decency when we was 21. And a Sex Talk? Never got it. (Thank you, Google.) So, relocating to a city became my large possibility to finally navigate a universe of dating and hookups. Thus, we content James, a 25-year-old programmer we met on Tinder a few weeks ago. Skinny, scruffy, 5’9”, wears a red beanie a lot. We tortuous adult on a initial date and have been texting accidentally ever since. Me: Work blues, what’s for lunch? J: Haha, we feel ya. Still looking for good spots.

2:00 p.m. Some co-workers and we confirm to check out a splash garden in Astoria after work.

6:40 p.m. On a approach to Queens, we check in with Jess, a 28-year-old video writer we swiped right on. We got off to a hilly start during first, personification Tinder-tag and not indeed assembly until scarcely a month later. I’m still astounded we ever did. But he’s humorous and peculiar and we like him. So far. Me: What kind of difficulty are we removing into tonight?

6:55 p.m. He says he doesn’t wish to be that man on his phone a whole time and signs off.

10:00 p.m. I’m dancing like Elaine with my co-workers and feel myself slipping into a dim waters of Drunk Texting. Inevitably, we cavern and summary Sean, a 24-year-old and my many new ex. Long story short: We met online, pronounced we wouldn’t do labels, though somehow finished adult with one because, well, what did we indeed expect?

10:15 p.m. He’s dipsomaniac during a bar in Brooklyn. Our texts get pithy flattering quickly. we tell him we wish we was sucking him off, and we unanimously confirm that carrying sex would be a prize idea. It’s not like we finished on bad terms. Not really, anyways. Fuck you, gray area.

11:00 p.m. I’m on a sight behind home when my phone buzzes. It’s Sean: What’s a best sight to your apt?

11:01 p.m. Nevermind, in an uber.

11:15 p.m. It’s kind of good to see him again, dual months later. All 5’10”of him, with his floppy brownish-red hair and gamer-specs. My roommate gets home and gives me a “What a fuck are we doing” side-eye.

11:20 p.m. He slides my shirt off, we remove his belt, and oh dear God, how we have missed him. He already knows what we like. Name-calling. Mild choking. When he’s inside of me, we literally. Can’t. Even.

11:40 p.m. We distortion in bed, sweaty and fundamentally panting. The room smells like sex. We discuss for a bit, though confirm no some-more sleepovers, for a best. He gets dressed and we lick good-bye. Then, we deposit off into a best nap I’ve had all week. Success.


9:30 a.m. we get adult for a barre category in Greenpoint.

11:30 a.m. My phone buzzes. It’s Sean: I feel kind of unwashed about final night. Wbu? I contend we feel fine. We determine that is was fun and would be peaceful to keep sex as an option.

11:31 a.m. we can’t assistance though think, Oh! My initial fuck-boy. *Smirk*

6:10 p.m. Jess, a video producer, texts me: So, what kind of difficulty did you end adult removing into final night? Eep! we don’t know because he creates me so giddy. we find it interesting that he’s 4 years comparison than me. Also, we live 5 blocks apart. We confirm to hang.

9:45 p.m. When we mark him station outward a cocktail bar in a fit coupler and dress shoes, we swoon. He’s a small ungainly (how we tend to like them), and we can’t tell if he’s nervous, bored, or only not picking adult on amicable cues. We discuss about families, vital in Brooklyn, and qualification cocktails where we can’t pronounce any of a ingredients.

1:30 a.m. Down a travel and a integrate of beers in, we’re swapping high-school promenade stories before kissing for a initial time. It’s electric. Damn you, extra-strength cocktails. On a travel behind to his, we bound onto an aged penny-horse float outward a sealed bodega. We laugh.

1:40 a.m. Jess’s unit is only like him, kind of off (there’s a cow-print cot we after find out he reupholstered himself), though cool. He offers me a shot of chartreuse and we toast before we pierce to his bedroom doorway. He follows me and we start kissing like there’s no tomorrow. He slides his palm down my waistline and underneath my belt and we am so fucking wet.

1:45 a.m. Two pleasing dicks inside me, in dual days. Bless me.

2:05 a.m. He is really a “geek on a streets and a uncanny in a sheets” type. But damn. He fucks me flattering tough and is astounded we can take it. It contingency be some arrange of restricted passionate charge we crave low down. we stand on tip and he tells me to hang my legs around him. we float him. we finish before he does, that frequency happens. Yes, yes, yes.


9:30 a.m. It’s kind of uncanny waking adult subsequent to Jess. He’s not a cuddler, though not cold. Again, we can’t tell if he’s socially awkward, or only not interested. He gets adult to pee and comes behind with minty-fresh breath. Okay, we see you, boy.

9:36 a.m. Morning sex, get during me. we tell him he has good eyes (who says that?).

9:55 a.m. we cancel my barre class. No approach these legs are tortuous for 24 hours.

10:30 a.m. Back during my home. we get a content from Jess. It’s a design of me on a bodega horse. N’aww.

12:00 p.m. Remembering we have an bureau potluck tomorrow, we content James a programmer and ask if he wants to come over and make a pie. He’s amused: Seriously? What time?

2:00 p.m. He buys us coffees and remembers how we take mine: divert with dual Splendas.

8:00 p.m. We hang out flattering many all day. we feel strangely though impossibly gentle around James. After creation a pie, we share a toaster-oven pizza, fume cigarettes on a rooftop, and speak about exes and relocating to New York. When it gets chilly, we go behind inside to make tea before creation out. He’s a really aware kisser, never rushing. we conclude that.

8:30 p.m. We have super-vanilla sex for a bit and conjunction of us finish. Instead, we spend many of a time fibbing exposed in bed, him tracing a finger adult and down my arm, me personification with his small black plugs. we tell him about my new affinity for amiable BDSM and he chuckles, wide-eyed. He’s flattering into astrology and imagining so we speak about that and lay around for another hour before he heads behind to Bushwick. 


10:20 a.m. I hurl into work, self-satisfied about carrying gotten so many movement a past few days, assured this is my passionate peak. I’ve never attempted a whole seeing/talking/sleeping with several people simultaneously, though so far, so good. Very good.

11:15 a.m. James and we start texting. He asks if we wish to go to a unison after this week: And don’t worry about a ticket. 🙂

8:00 p.m. Home for a night. we ramble into a kitchen and settle on a solidified Amy’s teriyaki bowl. While it whirs inside a microwave, we glance longingly during a biodegradable fuzz like you’d glance longingly during a phone, watchful for it to ring. Except, I’m also doing that, too.

8:10 p.m. we check my OkCupid profile. A match! Feeling like Beyoncé.

8:11 p.m. His username is conveniently a first–last name deal, so apparently we start social-media stalking him like a crazy woman. Brian. Twenty-five-year-old stand-up comedian who looks infrequently like one of my friends from high school, and also like a man from Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

8:30 p.m. We start texting. we start to brace him as a classic comedian who’s clearly cold on a surface, though dim on a inside. He texts with durations during a finish of everything. What does that mean? Probably nothing. Or everything. we finally moment him and he laughs during my terribly cheesy pun. Literally, it’s a fun about cheese.


11:00 a.m. James has been texting me each day. Not about anything critical though; we only dog about work.

12:55 p.m. Still zero from Jess.

1:45 p.m. Sean pings me on Gchat. we know friends-with-exes isn’t sustainable. Duh. But this feels flattering good. we vouch to take it one day during a time. My mom’s always saying, “You’re young, and you’re single. You should be carrying fun! Don’t rush to settle, blah, blah … ” we indispensable to welcome those sentiments when we was ready. I’m prepared now. To be 24, get laid, make plans, and live life. Hell, yes.  


10:05 a.m. we offshoot myself adult to a caffeine IV and cruise divided to a happy place.


6:30 p.m. we conduct to a East Village after work to accommodate some girlfriends for happy hour. Over $6 blood-orange mojitos and sliders, we chit-chat about work, life, and how group are dick holes, though can also have good dicks.

6:35 p.m. My phone buzzes. Brian, a comedian, texts me: I’m going to a uncover in Long Island City tonight. You should pitch by. Eep!

10:15 p.m. As a girls and we eventuality onto a uptown sight together, I’m unexpected nervous. we was formulation on holding a showering tonight, so I’m kind of feeling sum now. Is it unfortunate that I’m going on a initial invite? Too late, already on my approach to Grand Central, subsequent stop: What Am we Doing With My Life. we lick a girls good-bye and send to a 7 train.

10:39 p.m. Fuck these obscure venues. we arrive outward and counterpart in a window. It’s a cafe/bar/club trio.

10:40 p.m. Me: I’m being a pussy outside. B: I’m coming! Suddenly, we see his nonsensical laugh emerge from a side doorway and he hugs me hello.

11:30 p.m. Witty exchanges and a few PBRs later, a uncover wraps adult and we’re dancing like no one’s examination with his comedy buddies. Oh look, a print counter … we can’t conflict a print booth.

11:40 p.m. We try and make crafty faces before 4 blinding flashes, though are many too drunk. Soon, we’re creation out like a integrate of excitable kids behind a gym after homeroom.

1:45 a.m. After energy naps on a late-night sight and messy kisses on a platform, we finally get behind to his place in Bushwick (Bushwick boys, tho.) Incredibly inebriated, we frame and have sex. I’ve never been with a man who indeed says, “Come for me, baby” so much. He aggressively wants me to lay on his face. We’re both too dipsomaniac to finish, so we only cuddle. He’s really a cuddler. we puncture that.


11:10 a.m. Tangled limbs and crumpled sheets on a mattress on a floor. we adore Brian’s lanky, 6-foot body. He buries his conduct in my chest — in a lovable way, not a creepy motorboating approach — and he says he likes how we smell. we am in serious need of a shower, though thanks?

11:15 a.m. He says he wants to make me eggs. His special ingredient: scrambling them in bacon douse (actually genius). We share a image and nip on blueberries, articulate about where we’re from and what it’s like to be creation exponentially reduction income than your friends. After breakfast, we get dressed, he gives me a low lick good-bye and we bound into an Uber behind home.

12:45 p.m. After a prohibited shower, I’m reborn. we get prepared for a wine-tasting eventuality my roommate invited me to in Chelsea. I’m impersonating her crony who has a total membership.

2:15 p.m. How a fuck do we remember anything when you’re sipping all this wine?

10:30 p.m. In my favorite span of jeans, Doc Martens, and an open-back top, we content James that I’m streamer over to hang out with him. We hang out with his womanlike roommate (who is intimidatingly pretty), drinking, talking, and removing high.

12:15 a.m. We finally arrive during a venue in Williamsburg. It’s packed. James is a large fan of a DJs — that is cold and all, solely he keeps perplexing to explain things over pumping bass. we can’t hear shit. we grin and curtsy a dozen times.

3:00 a.m. Back to his place, we stay adult until dawn, get high, splash beers, fuck, and watch videos on YouTube. we feel sleepy AF, though reckless. we comprehend this is a kind of things many people do in college. Sleep with your ex. Get dipsomaniac and have a lot of sex. Or maybe not. Maybe it’s accurately what we do as a 24-year-old over Catholic who changed from a suburbs to New York, anticipating passionate ransom along a way.
