Holiday Hookup (A Guest Blog by Sandra Bunino)

I must have been especially good this year because it’s my second time on Violet’s blog this month! Thank you for having me back, Vi!

Do I have topic for you….
Holiday Hookups! Hmmm, I have your attention now don’t I?

This is a very timely subject because casual sex is quite popular during the holiday season. Parties, sexy dresses, mistletoe, candles and a warm, cozy fireplace all contribute to the holiday hookup. Did you know there are different types of hookups? A recent study published in the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality classifies casual sex into three categories.

Booty Calls – These are usually in the form of middle of the night, intoxicated texts. Do not succumb to the booty call, this is the most-likely-to-regret form of casual sex.

Friends with Benefits – Now this can get interesting, especially around the holidays. It’s the perfect have your cake and eat it too situation. The sex just happens to be the icing on the cake!

One-night Stand – I think this is such a fascinating subject that my new novella, Marooned in Miami, is based on a one-night stand.
Here’s the blurb:
Undeniable lust and a fierce Miami storm bring sexy strangers together at The Hotel Del Santos for a passion filled night.
Stephanie, still reeling from a failed marriage, needs a break from the past. She decides to take her friends’ advice and finds a perfect stranger for a night of no-strings-attached, smoking hot sex.
Jason, a wealthy Seattle builder has the worst luck with love. Swearing he would never allow another woman to get under his skin, Jason decides a life of casual sex is just fine with him. While watching Stephanie’s sexy stilettos click across the lobby floor he zeros in on his next conquest.
Cut off from the outside world, the lives of these two strangers collide and burn with desire when stranded in the perfect storm. Both are content with the idea of sharing a glorious one-night stand together, that is, until they go their separate ways.

So what do you think? Should holiday hookups remain fleeting and wonderful moments of casual sex? Or can the fires of holiday passion burn long after the yule log extinguishes?
Thank you again, Vi! I’ve had a ball with you and the other participating authors during the 25 Days of XXXMas!
Happy Holidays!

    I love the picture, by the way!

    Those one night stands can swing wildly in either direction, but the romance novels, thankfully, only cover the HEA ones. We have the horror genre for the ones on the other side of the pendulum’s arc. LOL

    Hmm…I’m all about hittin’ it then quittin’ it…there’s something deliciously awesome about one night stands. At the same time, I’ve had some pretty stellar long term situations that evolved from holiday hookups.
    Your book cover is finger (and other appendages) licking awesome!

    I know a couple people who gave in to booty calls and regretted it later. Probably out of loneliness. Drinking is often involved and that’s usually not good. Holiday hook-ups are nice, not that I would know, having no money for vacations. Lol. Though… I did go to Europe with friends after college graduation and met a fantastic girl in Paris. We had a few amazing days together.
    Oops! You meant hook-ups on the holidays! Just pretend you didn’t hear my Paris vacation story then. 😉
    One night stands can be fun if there are no complications like we talked about with stranger sex, which is probably much the same thing. Friends with benefits is similar as far as complications are concerned and, yes, they can turn into smoldering passion that lasts longer than a night. And no, Lila, I’m not talking about my GF here… We met at a party, or rather after having left the party to wait for friends outside… in a light rain. I lent her my jacket and the rest is, well, you know the rest.
    Great pic Sandra and good luck with MIM!!

    • You validated my advice regarding the Booty Call – really people, never a good idea – resist, resist!

      The Holiday Hookup can apply to the vacation holidays too. Swap out mistletoe and the warm, cozy fireplace with palm trees and a potent pina colada and Voilà! Reason flies out the window!

      I still love the story of how you met your GF. Thank goodness it was raining that night. 🙂

      Thanks for the good wishes, Ry! Happiest holiday to you and your family. 🙂

    Holiday hookups don’t need to end after the holidays. There is nothing stopping you from extending the fun and enjoying a full year of sexy fun. And yes, I love the picture as well. Thanks
