Strangers, awkwardness, intimacy, ecstasy are a few things that come to our mind when we think about one-night stands. Some women say it is the best sexual encounter they have had while others feel deflated after the act. And there are others who believe that physical and emotional intimacy cannot co-exist. We spoke to a few real women to tell you what their experience of one-night-stands.
A few years ago, I had a one-night stand with a college friend. I went to his hostel room to complete an assignment, and we simply could not keep our hands off each other, and things just followed. We went off to sleep and got up next morning only to see ourselves lying naked by each other, which turned out to be awkward. I hurriedly got up, wore my clothes and rushed out of his room. I had to see the guy every day in the college and friendship was never the same. It was totally not worth it , says Adreeja.
I met this guy on Tinder, went on a date, did not have sex but continued to text. One night I was right around the corner from his apartment in Gurgaon, so I gave him a call. We met at a lounge near his house and had a few drinks. We then decided to go to his house to spend some more time together. So there we were at 10 p.m in his balcony, and there he went in for the kiss. Things progressed pretty fast from there and before we knew it we were both naked and he was pulling a condom out of his drawer. We spent the entire night together, and in the morning we stuffed a few parathas from a nearby dhaba. We never saw each other, but it was the best night I spent with anyone till date , says Chetna.
A worthwhile experience
I had been chatting with this mutual friend for months, and he had been telling me how amazing he is in bed, and I was in for a real treat. He booked us a hotel room, and we got cosy with each other. To take the night further, we thought it would be a fabulous idea to have shower sex. To cut a long story short, we had sex in every corner of the hotel room, and we had tremendous fun doing that. I am glad I went for the real treat , says Tracy. These bizarre scientific facts about relationships will shock you.
I had some five one-night stands, and I realised that it isn t just women who can get emotionally attached after sex. I met such two clingers over my encounters. The worst was the one who told me the next morning that he was a virgin and then he started crying because it was his first time and he did not want to let go of me. The bottom line is that you need to be clear about your expectations before you go all out with anyone , says Suman.
It is freeing
One-night stand with a stranger feels great. It s fun when you are both aware that it is only physical and you do not have to deal with any relationship. It s somehow very freeing, and you get to be your real self. You can experiment and share your sexual fantasies knowing that it was just the night and you are never going to meet that person again to share an awkward moment , says Lynda.

Not for me
I have had one or two one night stands, and I realised that the idea is not for me. For me, emotional connection is a huge part of sex, and I cannot help but hope for more , says Anita. Here are signs that you are not the casual dating type.
I had a one-night stand with a friend in college, and while it felt like a pretty no-strings-attached thing, it had a lasting impact. In no time I realised that I was pregnant. Yes, I made the smartest choice by aborting, but you cannot always assume that a one-night-stand will remain a one-night-stand. It is a complete no if you are not using a protection says Debina.
