ONE NIGHT STAND:
a. a sexual encounter lasting only one evening or night
b. a person regarded as being only suitable for such an encounter
WOW!!! It's amazing how some words or descriptions have a special impact. The words One Night Stand conjure up memories....and preconceptions we all have, One Night Stands are about romance or sex or both, either you knew it was going to be a One Night Stand right from the beginning or it turned out to be. There is mystery to it, and a certain cheekiness, doing something you know you really shouldn’t do, but can’t resist. It is about the irresistible, the irrepressible, the dangerous, the daring, the outrageous, the forbidden, the foolish....One Night Stand.
