One night stand is the sexual encounter between two people wherein, none of the person has any intention of continuing the relationship. Initially the term ‘one night stand’ was referred to single theatre performance by a guest actor. But today, the term is largely use for single sexual encounter between the people who are neither committed nor have an intention to meet again in their lifetime.

 

A research published in the Journal Human Nature revealed that women are less comfortable with casual relationships instead they prefer ‘quality’ over ‘quantity’. So they are less likely to prefer one night stand.


People who are not ready for relationship, especially committed relationship prefer to have one night stands.

  • One night stand occurs because of different reason that varies from person to person. 
  • Most of the one night stand occurs when both the parties are drunk. Moreover, young adults who are willing to explore their sexuality usually prefer one night stand. Another group of people who prefer one night stand is of single people that are not ready for any sort of commitment.
  • Besides this, married people too indulge in one night stand. The situation arises from the fact that they want to taste something ‘new’ but at the same time they are not willing to disturb their married life. However, one night stand may go unnoticed by your partner but the moment of infidelity makes you more likely to cheat again. The charm of one night stand can make infidelity your habit so be aware.

One night stand simply implies to having random sex or hooking up with someone with hope to not see him/her again. You meet a person in party or a bar and don't even bother to get acquainted before getting sexually involved with the person. Some people don’t bother to ask name of the person with whom she/he spent their night.


People often think one night stand to be sensual, harmless, enjoyment and fun but there are many negative consequences link to it. According to many surveys most of the people regret after one night stand. Women regret it more than the men.


In one night stand you are at risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Being a stranger you don’t know the STD status of your partner, she/he may have picked the infection from someone.
