Uber recently wanted to remind everyone, not to hookup in their cars with drivers, but that obviously has not stopped many folks from doing just that because there are still a lot of people getting down and dirty all while on the way to their destination.
I was in a long-term relationship for about four years. We had a pretty racy sex life – we’d had a few threesomes, we were not shy about sex in public places, and we’d tried all kinds of role-playing.
While our sex life was best, our relationship ran its course. I had retrained a few years earlier and gone from working in retail just to earn money, to working in a higher stress industry that I really love.
My partner was still working just for the paycheque, so we both had different mind-sets.
I also started spending more time with workmates, and he just was not that interested in our conversations, so we spent less and less time together.
We stayed friends and continued to hookup often, but when he met a new lady that stopped – it was all amicable, but obviously she was not super comfortable with me being around, which I understand.
One night I went out with workmates for an early dinner, and I shared an Uber home with a colleague as it was dark when we left.
We’d been talking discreetly about the last few dudes we’d found through dating apps.
My friend was dropped off first, and I moved into the front seat next to my driver, who I’d suddenly noticed was hot.
We chatted about his passengers, traffic, and I did the wedding ring check – all clear.
Not being especially shy, I asked him if he’d overheard our conversation about our previous hook-ups, and he smiled and nodded.
Then I asked him if he was in a relationship. When he said no, I asked him how he found himself ‘dates’.
We shared a few Tinder fail stories, then, as we were getting closer to my house, I asked him if he’d ever had hookup with an Uber passenger.
He said they weren’t allowed to, but he’d been tempted a few times.
What about if he gave me his number and I called him? Would that be breaking the rules? He nodded towards a deck of his business cards with a grin.
His phone pinged a few seconds later and without saying anything, he parked the car and we went inside.
As soon as we were inside, he pushed me up against the wall and kissed me while I took off his shirt. Thirty seconds later we were on the hallway floor, having amazing, scare-the-neighbors-loud sex.
Hookup with an uber driver was the best experience but I knew I’d never see him again – it did make me look at my Uber drivers in a new light, however.
Hooking up with Uber drivers sounds like sexual thrill-seeking and I am not surprised there are women as well as men who do it.
Attitudes towards hookup culture show 15% of people, really enjoy casual sex. I call them ‘enthusiasts’. They typically hook up more than their peers, genuinely enjoy it, and report real boosts in self-esteem. There have always been people who really get off on a sexual adventure – Uber drivers are just the next rush.
