Hookups happen, and they can be a really fun, and even lead to a really good thing for you in the long run. But other times, they simply serve as a hookup that left you feeling less than proud. A new study published in the journal Sex Research
confirms this, saying that many men and women feel like "what in the world just happened here?!" after getting tangled up in the sheets with someone.
Researchers of the study took a look at 600 male and female participants' sexual encounters, including how many partners they got busy with and how many times, over the course of three months. What they found was a whole lot of sexual regrets.
The biggest regret? The partner they chose to have fun with. At 45 percent, people were less than pleased with who they sexted it up with. And 39 percent felt dissatisfied with the experience, sexually speaking. And 35 percent felt as though they took the hookup too far, while another 35 percent were completely embarrassed.
These five men and women anonymously revealed their most regrettable hookup experience.
“This is going to sound real original,
but last year I hooked up with one of my superiors at our holiday party. It would have been extremely awkward afterward no matter how good or bad it was, but since he ejaculated very prematurely in his office, it was even worse. We both knew immediately that it would never happen again. We actually still work together, and almost a year later it’s still really weird any time we’re in the same room—which is usually a few times a day.” —Katie A.
“And it was actually mid-hookup. To be clear, he’d eaten before we met, so it wasn’t on me for picking a restaurant that gave him the sh*ts. This would have been no big deal if he just came out of the bathroom and 'fessed up or asked me where I kept my plunger—I would’ve just laughed. However, he came back into my room, told me he wasn’t feeling well, and took off. He said nothing about the clogged toilet, and I was left to plunge it. Chivalry is officially dead.” —Allison J.

"My long-distance boyfriend was in town, and we got a hotel room for the night because we wanted to have some undisturbed alone time away from my roommate. I decided this was the perfect time to try Beyoncé's sex position of choice, surfboarding. FYI: This entails filling a tub up halfway, as the lyrics say, and riding it like a surfboard—a.k.a. reverse cowgirl. It was truly Beyoncé-level fun. But two days later, I got the worst
UTI of my life. #regret" —Ashley E.
“After hooking up with my Tinder date, we started chatting about politics. She told me she was going to vote for Donald Trump in the Republican primary. I started laughing because I just assumed she was joking. She wasn’t.” —Nick P.
“I was mid-coitus with a boy when he looked me straight in the eye and told me he loved me. This was on our second date, and it was the first time we ever fooled around. I freaked out, pushed him off of me, and screamed, 'Did you just Ted Mosby me?!' He responded, 'Did I just what?' I regret having sex with someone who told me he loved me the first time we were intimate, and I regret having sex with someone who didn’t get my How I Met Your Mother
reference.” —Erin M.
