If you don’t know what its means, a one-night stand is a single sexual encounter without an expectation of further relations between the sexual participants. This is regardless of whether a single encounter was originally intended by either participant to be a one-night stand, or whether further relations between the participants subsequently occur. Critics of the practice describe it as “sexual activity without emotional commitment or future involvement”
A one-night stand differs from casual dating in that casual dating implies a longer term interaction, whereas a one-night stand occurs only once.
The truth be told, a one-night stand is not an act that would get you applauds, and you might also regret your act by the next morning.
I’d share with you five reasons one-night stand isn’t a good idea.
1. IT’S RISKY
One-night stands are very risky, sometimes people have one night stands under the influence of alcohol, depression and so many other reasons. When you have sex under these conditions, you might not take enough preventive measures and stand a chance of getting infected with STDs or having an unwanted pregnancy; a one-night stand is a risky sex and could be harmful.
2. YOU PASS A WRONG MESSAGE
When you have a one-night stand, you pass a message of being wild and irresponsible; a one-night stand doesn’t depict morals, it shows the opposite. The guy might not have trust for the lady and the lady won’t have trust for the guy, it’s just a fling thing.
3. WOULD HARDLY TURN INTO A RELATIONSHIP
One-night stands would hardly lead to a relationship, it’s just a fling thing that might keep leading to other fling things and if care isn’t taken you might just go on with the fling thing. The fact that one-night stands won’t translate to a relationship makes it a bad idea; it’s just casual sex.
4. YOU MIGHT HATE YOURSELF THE NEXT MORNING
This is usually what goes with one night stands especially after the act was done under the influence of alcohol. Studies have shown that ladies tend to be angry with themselves the morning after, and this can make depression set in.
5. IT JUST MIGHT GO ROUND
Trust men to always tell each other of their sexual escapades; as a lady, you might feel the act was supposed to be a secret, but the man might just tell one or two of his friends and you know the drill, it only starts with one or two people to spread a rumour. So the act which you might not want others to know might become public news.
One night stands like I pointed out earlier doesn’t depict good morals; it causes more harms than good and it might just lead to depression.
