People may have different views – be it bad or not – when it comes to one-night stands. But regardless, it has become a norm in the modern society. Some even see it as a way to know the opposite sex.
Interestingly, a good percentage of people confessed into having one-night stand. But while most of them are happy with the experience, some simply regret it. This is quite interesting, though, as it proves just how diverse humanity is even in such things.
In a recent survey involving 2000 people – ages 18 to 64 – 82 percent of them said they had casual one-night stand before. As for the 18 percent, they all clamored regrets. Either way, it can’t be denied that this trend is heavily promoted in all parts of the world. From TV shows to movies to books, this sexual adventure is just popular.
Without further ado, below are the top 10 cities that have embraced one-night stand as a culture.
#10. Berlin, Germany
It’s true that the annual exotic event called Love Parade has somehow influenced people to embrace one-night stand. The event, which dates back to 1989, has significantly become an annual tourist celebration. It is where both the locals and the tourists share intimate notions and tendencies. And believe it or not, they’re very open to such conversations. They’ve even learned to embrace the LGBT community, not to mention the fact that prostitution is legal in this city.
#9. Macau, China
Macau is known for a lot of things but gambling is the most popular one. Following its legalization, the city has grown to be a magnet for gamblers from around the globe. And obviously, these very people are also fond of sexual escapades such as one-night stand. According to The Beauty of Travel, Macau is internationally known as the “King of All Casino Heavens.”
#8. Manama, Bahrain
Prostitutions and brothels started to become a “thing” in the 1990s. Since then, these spread like a wildfire across Manama, earning the moniker “Middle East’s party capital.” With its laid back scenery, the city is like a European experience. However, the liberal lifestyle it promotes encouraged people from different parts of the world to visit it. And this is solely for the purpose of having sex.
#7. New Orleans, Louisiana
Well, this is a no-brainer. The 4Bs are enough to put this one in the list. “Wait, what’s 4Bs,” you may ask. These are basically bongs, beers, breads, and boobs – yes, you read the latter correctly. As a city, New Orleans has fully embraced the “sinful” element blended with the nicest food, music, and hedonism (though prostitution isn’t legal here). If you’ve heard the phrase “The Big Easy,” you’d know exactly why the city deserves it.
#6. Moscow, Russia
They say if you want a great sexual experience, visit Moscow. It seems this is true after all. Moscow is not only known for its population; it’s also famous for one-night stands. The city offers a very active nightlife, with tons of night clubs and brothels. People can just get loose here.
#5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
When it comes to beaches and topless women, there’s nothing compared to Rio de Janeiro. The level of energy the city has is just off the charts. No wonder it has become a top destination for one-night stands. Remember that Brazilian women are known for their exquisite beauty and active sex life. In fact, the active s-life in this city starts at the age of 16.
#4. Las Vegas, Nevada
Ah, the sinful city. It’s a crime not to include Las Vegas in this list. Because seriously, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” All of the lustful things you can ever imagine are wonderfully cultivated in this city. There’s nothing like a solid Vegas experience!
#3. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Amsterdam is widely known as the world’s first free city. Both cannabis and prostitution are legal there. And people from all over the world just know what to expect in the city. Countless sex? Check. Want to get high? Go ahead. Amsterdam is a beast, so to speak.
#2. Tijuana, Mexico
Notice why most sex-themed movies are filmed in Tijuana? That’s because this city is swarmed with sexually active people. Keep in mind that 63 percent of the its population are into sex and one-night stand. Perhaps JC Chasez’s “All Day Long I Dream About Sex” song is perfect for this city.
#1. Pattaya, Thailand
If you’re looking for the ultimate one-night stand experience, look no further than Pattaya. The city itself is stimulated by exotic resorts and beaches, not to mention the great number of brothels and night clubs. Massage parlors there even offer “special” service. Apparently, everything’s cheap there, including sex. So if you’re to experience its nightlife, be sure to bring some protection with you.
Hill Of Buddha, The Majestic Prayer Hall In Japan Surrounded By A Lavender Mound
The design aims to enhance the majestic sight of the giant Buddha.
In the northern city of Sapporo in Japan, specifically at Makomanai Takino Cemetery, one can find a spectacular architectural design that was erected more than a decade ago. It’s only recently that the hill was sculpted to reveal the spectacular surprise - a giant statue of Buddha.
The statue of Buddha was sculpted about 15 years ago but in December 2015, Japanese architect Tadao Ando completed the hill, which has been planted with 150,000 color-changing lavender plants. These flowers turn fresh green in spring, becomes pale purple in summer and then turn white with the winter snow. In an essay for DOMUS magazine, Ando explained what he had done with the hill and why it was designed that way.
From the foot of the hill, the statue of Buddha looks like a small temple.
10 Made-Up Health Disorders You Need to Stop Believing
Apparently, some companies are using lies to sell or promote their products.
There’s no doubt that most, if not all, people are concerned about their health. That's why they always find ways to invest on their well-being and fund medical expenses when necessary. But while products are meant to cure illnesses, you'd be surprised that the way some of them are advertised are actually based on lies.
Health scares have been part of humanity since time immemorial. But believe it or not, not all of them are actually true. Some companies will tell you whether or not a food is healthy while others will suggest that some devices put a person’s health at risk. These are just some made-up notions meant to persuade people into buying a medical product.
#10. Wi-Fi and Its Dangers
What is Alice in Wonderland Syndrome and What’s It Like To Have It
Apparently, this neurological condition can really mess up with your mind.
Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) — who died in 1898 — suffered from a rare neurological disorder that wasn't identified until several decades after his death. The author often had hallucinations wherein objects would appear larger or smaller than they are. If you're familiar with Carroll's most famous story, you will recall that the lead character, Alice, dealt with this problem.
As we all know, Carroll's surreal tale of a little girl who wanders into a strange world already continues to be wildly popular all over the world. It has been published in numerous editions and has several movie versions as well. Yet, very few people know that many of the experiences of the lead character were based on the author's disorder.
