Browse these 25 scary hookups that happen to all of us, and remember to always have an escape route. Enter if you dare! My name is Alexander Cheves, and I am known by friends in the kink and leather community as Beastly. I am a sex-positive writer and blogger. The views in this slideshow do not reflect those of The Advocate and are based solely off of my own experiences. Like everything I write, the intent of this piece is to break down the stigmas surrounding the sex lives of gay men. Those who are sensitive to frank discussions about sex are invited to click elsewhere, but consider this: If you are outraged by content that address sex openly and honestly, I invite you to examine this outrage and ask yourself whether it should instead be directed at those who oppress us by policing our sexuality.

Hungry for more? Not everyone loves anonymous sex, but I do. Anonymous sex is one of the most thrilling parts of my gay life. It works because it's accident; it's chance.
As with Christmas and birthday parties, planning anything takes away the fun of it and makes it routine: discussion, buildup, and the inevitable letdown of having things go as you foresaw. Random, sudden sexual encounters with strangers — sex in the back of clubs, in back alleys, in airplane bathrooms, in parks in broad daylight — are like little gifts dropped from a naughty maker.
The first time you find yourself in the right bathroom on the right floor of the right shopping mall at the right time with the right privacy and the right man, you will probably be very scared of getting caught, of not being able to perform, and of the whole circumstance in general.
I was, but then I swallowed my fear, and swallowed.
I met him on the beach late at night. No one had told me to never meet in a remote location or to always tell a friend where you are and have an escape plan. I was terrified. I was driving along a road in the middle of nowhere and walking down a pier in the dark to meet a stranger, who was visible by the light of a cell phone.
As I got closer, I thought, This is how people die. Meet in a public place where people are.

Have an escape plan. The first time I went into a backroom, I had some warning: the sounds coming from behind the curtain gave me a pretty good idea of what I would find. I pulled the curtain back. My eyes adjusted to the dark, and I watched, disbelieving, as someone was bent over and fucked in a corner a few feet away. Then I turned around and saw him: a 6-foot-8 tank of a man on the other side of the room, standing under a red light, looking at me. I approached him and he pulled his dick out. I did.
I was trembling. I was on my back with his dick in my mouth and felt a blow to my stomach. I pushed him off me, heaving. I bet I can shove my whole hand inside you. I grabbed my stuff and left. Getting catfished is unavoidable in the age of hookup apps. At some point you will meet up with a guy who looks nothing like his pictures. The experience will freak you out, make you angry, and make you feel like everyone online is dishonest. This is insane. How do I get out?

My sincere hope is that the fear abates and you have a powerful, beautiful session. I was terrified my first time — and came out of it on the other side as a new man. My wish for every beginner kinkster kinky homo is that they have a rewarding first time and start slow.
No one likes a pushy, aggressive playmate. Drugs are the classic ingredient of hookups gone wrong. Using drugs around someone without their prior consent is disrespectful and inconsiderate. Walking into a group when you only thought you were meeting one person can be extremely uncomfortable. It disrespects your privacy and consent. Leave ASAP. For me, this typically comes hand in hand with guys who are using drugs including and especially alcoholbut not always.
Some guys are just temperamental and aggressive people. They may be uncomfortable with hooking up, and their discomfort may translate to annoyance, irritableness, and paranoia. Gay baiting happens. There might be harmless reasons for this — curiosity, questions — but most that come to mind are sinister: to proselytize, abuse, bully, or something of the sort.
Be careful. I kept delaying climbing on his bed until finally I had to sit down on a chair and tell him the news. The guy was gold. He pulled me to the bed and kissed me, and I started crying. While mine was a good story, many of my HIV-positive family members have horror stories of people who freak out and scream and kick them out.
Even in the age of PrEP, people are cruel and uneducated and prejudiced.
A word of warning from writer alexander cheves
Be ready to leave. Forget haunted houses. Hooking up with a gay couple is a terrifying minefield of strong emotions you have to watch out for. Someone may get jealous or feel left out.
One partner may feel insecure, guilty, or threatened by you: the blithe, horny third. Sex parties are just a bunch of guys who decide to get together and play — nothing scary about it.

There are sober sex parties and kinky sex parties and fisting parties and bare-only sex parties and condom-only sex parties and DILF parties and pup parties and more types of gay sex parties than you can possibly imagine. You can find one that fits your interests. If you get there and freak out, politely and quietly leave. You should always thank the host, and since sex parties can usually cost some money lube, cleanup, etc.

The body is simply outside your control sometimes. It does weird things. You are only able to control it to a point. This story happens to all of us. When it does, picture me hugging you and telling you to be kind to yourself, love your body, and take fiber regimens like Metamucil or Pure for Men to prevent these sorts of mishaps in the future. After dinner, we headed back to his place. He wanted me to seroconvert him — infect him with HIV. Have a good night. This has only happened to me once, in Atlanta.

The whole evening was a farce; he had fetishized my HIV-positive status. Guys may fetishize anything about you, from your skin color to your body type to your height. For me, this was quite hurtful and frightening, particularly since he had gone through an entire very enjoyable dinner date before communicating this goal. I felt lied to, manipulated, and hurt.
