One-night stand selfies capture the extreme awkwardness of the morning after

Ever just wake up in the morning, stretch your arms, roll over and RUN RIGHT INTO A COMPLETE STRANGER WHO HAS BEEN SLEEPING IN YOUR BED?

If you answered 'yes' to this question, congratulations; you've experienced the existential joy of a one-night stand.

A curious occurrence, those one-night stands. A burst of high intensity sexual cardio followed by three or four hours of pretending to be asleep so you don't have to speak, finished off with a dose of morning awkwardness so potent it could probably kill a cat. But, poor sexually active reader, you are not alone in this bizarre interaction.

Thankfully for all of us, some people have started a delightful new trend called the "one-night stand selfie," in which newly deflowered men and women Snapchat or picture message their snoring conquest to their social network. The point of this is twofold: first, it reminds us that we've all made that same, scabies-ridden mistake, therefore diminishing the overwhelming "ew ew ew ew" feeling we get when we reminisce about what happened. Two, it broadcasts to others that you just got laid.

Immature, but awesome!

Here are some prominent examples of one-night stand selfies. Bask in the confusion and awkwardness. It's kinda sad!
