6 Women Share The Hilarious Details Of Their Most Memorable One-Night Stands
Ah, one-night stands. At times, these evenings are one part fun and two parts awkward. But others end up being lustful nights to remember. Picture this scenario, for example: You’re out with friends, or by yourself, and suddenly you’re flirting with a beautiful stranger. One thing leads to another and BOOM! You’re having sex. (Yes, please!)
There's absolutely nothing wrong with a casual encounter, it’s part of being human and enjoying life. That said, let's be real, society rarely gives women the leeway to enjoy one-night stands (hello, slut-shaming). Yet, we have them. Plenty of them. So rather than let the stigma hold you back, embrace the sexy weirdness of a one-time romp!
Here, in celebration of female sexuality, we're featuring real women and the stories of their most memorable one-night stands.
We Hooked Up In The Kitchen
"I met this amazing girl out at a bar with my friends. I was maybe 19. She and I were flirting all night. After a few hours, we wound up in the back room. It was a kitchen, I think, but they had stopped serving food for the night. We were in there hooking up for hours. I thought no one knew where we were. When we finally came back, all of my friends were laughing at me and making fun of me. It was hilarious. I never saw that girl again, but that was a super-wild night." —Mia, 28

I Told Him I Had To Have Him, Now
"I was traveling in Ireland last year, and we were bar-hopping all day. I hit it off with this guy at the bar, and he bought me drinks all night. All of a sudden something came over me, and I told him to take me to the hotel he was staying at because 'I had to have him, now.' His friends were in the hotel room when we got there. He goes, 'one second'—next thing I know, four full-grown men walked out of the room single file, looking down to avoid eye contact with me. We had sex, and he walked me back to the bar my friends were at. Never saw him again." —Elif, 23
Watch men and women come up with names for these adventurous sex positions:
I Fell Asleep
"My friend and I were in a bar and came across some hot guys. I immediately was so into one of them and we really start hitting it off. He said, ‘You guys look like you have nowhere to go why don't you come with us?’ We went with him and his friends to a nearby karaoke bar. This guy and I were flirting all night and my friend eventually left.
"Meanwhile, there were two middle-aged women at the same bar, enjoying a 20-year best friend anniversary trip. One of them pulled me aside and asked what the deal was with me and the guy—they'd apparently been watching us all night and thought we were adorable together. Out of nowhere, he came up and put his arm around me and told them he's been in love with me since we were kids and I just never gave him a chance so we had to settle for best friends. The ladies were EATING THIS UP. And, as a result, kept buying us shots of tequila and telling us how we need to just go for it or we'll regret it.
"We spent hours at this bar creating this elaborate lie about how we were both so in love with each other but never had the guts to go for it. Finally, I think we almost started believing our own lie and felt so comfortable with each other. I went back to his place and I fell asleep while he was going down on me. I was so embarrassed about the falling-asleep thing that I left first thing in the morning without saying bye or giving him my number and never saw him again." —Carry*, 24

It Got Ridiculous
"I was smoking outside with my roommate when this fella walked up and asked to bum one from us. Drunk me was annoyed and turned him away, but my roommate handed one on over. Fast forward 10 minutes and we were hardcore making out (and being Snapchatted) inside the bar, before he came home with me. We had a good time, did our business, and then the ridiculousness started. He went to the bathroom and actually forgot which room was mine, which is kind of a hard thing to do, and ended up walking into my roommate's room butt-naked while she and her boyfriend were having sex.
"The next morning, I woke up and he was gone, but his wallet, phone, ID and CLOTHES were still in my room. Yes, he left everything he owned at my place and walked to God knows where naked with nothing but my FAVORITE plush towel.
"He did end up coming back that night to get his things, and luckily I was out shopping and missed this awkward AF interaction completely. But the kicker? HE KEPT THE TOWEL. That's what I was most upset about." —Jordan, 26

We Didn't Speak The Same Language
"When I was 18, I met this guy abroad who didn’t speak a word of English at a club. Somehow or another we wound up being able to communicate enough where we both knew we wanted to take off and have sex. I honestly don’t know how I did it, because he didn’t know how to speak English, literally at all. We went back to his place and he put on music. We had sex. It was not great, but I couldn’t direct him because neither one of us could actually talk to each other. It was super hilarious. It’s one of my all-time favorite stories." —Michelle, 33

She Was Into BDSM
"I met this woman at the gym, right before my long-term girlfriend. I was with some friends, but she came right up to me. She was really cool, so I agreed to go out with her. She invited me over for a 'Smoke & Soak,' as she called it—smoke some weed and then go in the hot tub.
"One thing led to another, and soon we were getting ready to head inside for some post-hot tub action. It turned out she was really into BDSM, and she said she wanted to try some new restraints. It was like nothing I’d ever tried before. She kept wanting me to hit her harder. I wasn’t super into it, though. I guess she knew this because she never called me again". —Sarah, 30
