Using a dating app to enrich your sex life is not taboo anymore. No matter how satisfied with our love life we are, all of us, from time to time, experience a one-night stand with a stranger. Such things often have a negative connotation, but don’t let this put you off if you set your mind on having a hookup. It’s very important to know that each experience is different, and perhaps this is precisely what you need. On the other hand, this might be a bit overwhelming to newbies – what to do, how to behave and what to wear for your first hookup? Before we answer this question, make sure that you do the more important things first, such as carefully preparing and cleansing before your Grindr hookup comes. But when it does, this is the type of clothes that you want to be wearing:
Something that will make you look fresh
Since we do not know our hookups in most cases, it’s important to let them know we are fresh and tidy. If we’re clean on the inside, we must be clean on the outside as well! That’s why, apart from PrEP, you need to take care of how your clothes look. You wouldn’t want to have sex with someone messy unless you’re looking for that specifically, would you? No matter what you wear, make sure that your clothes are clean and or even ironed. If you fail to do this, you might come off as sloppy and even inexperienced, which is definitely something you want to avoid.
On the other hand, it’s the fetishes that will also determine what you’ll be wearing. For example, going with a jockstrap is an excellent idea if you and your hookup are both into that. Jockstraps are always hot, so this might be the right way to show your partner that you really mean game, even if it’s your first time (but he won’t know it, of course). If you want to wear some specific garments which are still somewhat considered taboo to the general public, such as harnesses or BDSM equipment, you can always find them in a good adult shop and order them online. This is how you’ll make sure no one knows what you bought, which is a great thing for beginners who are embarrassed to go to the actual store and buy these garments in person. Of course, these are all the things that you need to prepare in advance, but the good thing is that it will take you a day or two to set up your hookup wardrobe.
Something that will dazzle
In order to impress your partner before the sex starts, you can always go with different accessories that will make you more interesting and fashion-conscious. Perhaps your first hookup will start at a coffee shop, and if it does, you must approach it as you would approach any other date. Have a good wristwatch that will complement your whole outfit or find a good man bag if you want to come off as a fashion guru. Accessories always give a certain depth to the outfit combo.
Something that can be taken off easily
Finally, focus on pieces that can be taken off easily. Remember that this is, after all, a hookup, and going with pieces that are fashionable yet difficult to take off will not do you any good. That is why you should always go with something that looks cool, which accentuates all your good features and is easily unzipped and taken off, such as a crop top. Don’t go with something super slim that will lose you time – this can only backfire. You don’t want your partner to get bored while trying to get you out of those clothes, do you?
Going on your first hookup is a big deal, and your mind probably won’t be thinking about these details that can either make or break this experience. Wear the clothes that you like and make you feel comfortable – that’s the most important thing. Also, don’t forget your jocks! Come clean and tidy, and everything else will come naturally.
