Pros and Cons of One-Night Stands

We have all been there, you met someone and in the heat of the moment, whether it is physical attraction or the result of a drunken night out on the town, one-night stands are a thing that happen to us all but, here are the pros and cons that you should think of next time you bring someone home for the night.

You are able to be as crazy and wild as you want when it comes to sexual fantasies or things you desire in the bedroom as you will probably never see this person again in your life.

You will probably not remember it the next morning, meaning that anything embarrassing or crazy you did, with be nothing more than the small drifts of a dream that you can no longer remember after the first ten minutes of waking up.

You do not have to worry about the other person thinking that you want to have more of a relationship than just sex, unless of course, this is something that the two of you can equally agree on.


You do not know if the person who you are with is married, if this is the case you could find that their partner harasses you later on in life if they ever were to find out.

You might never get rid of them if they come to stay the night with you. In fact, it is not unheard of for a one-night stand to lead to stalker activity (in which case this stalker advice from Jane would be very helpful for your unfortunate predicament).
