’” Grace is a 23-year-old Brooklyn-based photographer, then aged 22.
We are not using her real name to protect her identity because she is not a public figure.
She says Ansari brushed her off at first, but after he realized they both brought the same kind of camera to the event, an old model from the 80s, he was impressed.
They flirted a little — he took two pictures of her, she snapped some of him — and then she and her date went back to the dance floor.
“It was like, one of those things where you’re aware of the other person all night,” she said.
“We would catch eyes every now and then.” They ran into each other one last time, right as Grace was leaving.
According to Grace, Ansari turned the compliment into an invitation.
“Most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling.
I know that my hand stopped moving at some points,” she said.
When Ansari told her he was going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss, Grace voiced her hesitation explicitly. Everything was pretty much touched and done within ten minutes of hooking up, except for actual sex.” She says Ansari began making a move on her that he repeated during their encounter.
“I said something like, ‘Whoa, let’s relax for a sec, let’s chill.’” She says he then resumed kissing her, briefly performed oral sex on her, and asked her to do the same thing to him. “The move he kept doing was taking his two fingers in a V-shape and putting them in my mouth, in my throat to wet his fingers, because the moment he’d stick his fingers in my throat he’d go straight for my vagina and try to finger me.” Grace called the move “the claw.” Ansari also physically pulled her hand towards his penis multiple times throughout the night, from the time he first kissed her on the countertop onward.
“He probably moved my hand to his dick five to seven times,” she said. She compared the path they cut across his apartment to a football play.
