Lucas, 21

Where are you from?
São Paulo, Brazil, originally, but I live and work here now. I study at FIU, do research for the Department of Energy, and work at a tutoring center.

Do any of those ever get you laid?
Yes, actually. At the tutoring center I’m a supervisor, and most recently, I’ve been hooking up with a girl who’s my tutee or student or whatever. You know, giving a bit of positive reinforcement. It doesn’t get me in trouble, though. I take it out of the tutoring room and into the bedroom.

Where’s the craziest place you’ve ever had sex?
On the beach, in the water, cars in parking lots, but the craziest would be in the center of the soccer field while there were cops chasing us. There was a girl that I was hooking up with, and we decided that it would be a good idea to go up to the soccer field in FIU while there was a free concert going on next door, I believe it was Kaskade and Pitbull. So, we’re in the soccer stadium at FIU, and we just jumped the fence and did our thing, but we’re trespassing, so the cops come, lights flashing, and as soon as we finished there’s three cars following us so we jumped the fence again and ran into the bushes.

Has a girl ever done anything crazy to get your attention?
Once a girl threw a water balloon at my face. It worked. I slept with her. There was a water balloon fight, I had no interest in her before any of that started, but at the end of the fight she threw a water balloon to my face, and that definitely caught my attention. I’m a little bit more subtle when talking to girls though. I’m smooth. I’ve flown out to Hong Kong to see a girl. As well as California and Chicago.

Are you a member of the Mile High Club?
Oh yeah. I was on my way to Brazil, and I met this girl on the flight. It was an eight-hour flight, and both of us were a little bit too horny to hold back, so we went to the bathroom.

Did your parents ever give you any advice about sex and relationships?
Absolutely. My parents are very strict — they’re actually both full-time pastors — but once I turned eighteen and moved away from home, I started doing my own thing. Their religious speech would be no sex until marriage, but when they were being real they just told me to hold back until I found the right person.

Do you have any crazy exes?
One ex was living in Brazil, we had dated for a year and a half, and when I was in Miami she would send me crazy packages with condoms and female condoms, not nice. She thought I was a sex freak. We didn’t have an open relationship at all, we weren’t even dating at the time, but she still didn’t like me. I broke up with her twice. When we got back together the second time I thought I should give it another try, I still liked her a little bit, but after a month or two I realized that it just wouldn’t work out. Then about two or three months later she went back to Brazil, and she saw my pictures on Facebook and decided to be a bitch.

Do you have any dating dealbreakers?
I’m not into a girl who will go dance on a pole on the first night. If I see a girl and have some type of commitment, like if we’ve been out a couple times already and then we go out and have a few drinks, then she can get up on the bar and dance. But if it’s the first time we go dancing and she’s letting it all out like that? No. First impressions are always important.

What’s one quality that most makes you want to sleep with someone?
I love good posture. I love a girl who walks straight, straight back, is able to hold her stance. Heels help. As long as she’s confident. I don’t have a generic type, I like to get to know a girl before something happens.

How is dating in Brazil different from dating in Miami?
I feel like the culture in Miami is a lot more going out and hooking up, and in Brazil, it’s a lot more social drinking then hooking up. The drinking age there is eighteen, here it’s twenty-one, so people handle themselves a bit better. Brazil is definitely more of a dating scene. Even if you hook up with somebody at a club or a bar, you're more likely to end up dating them long-term in Brazil. Give it a week or two, you’re very likely to keep talking and make something official. That’s less likely in Miami. Here, I feel like somebody can hook up with a girl or guy for three, four weeks straight, and not make it a relationship. Whereas in Brazil, give it a week or two, and you’d better be in a relationship because that’s how it’s done.
