    What do you call a one-night stand (one night of casual sex with a person whom you never plan on seeing again afterward) in your language?

    In hebrew we dont have a word for one-night stand but we do have a word for "meeting to have sex and nothing else":
    סטוץ stutz.
    also, to make out is להתמזמז lehitmazmaz.
    EDIT: a stutz is meaningless, but a girlfriend might not think so :p

    In Greek it's called «ξεπέτα» [kse'peta] (fem.) < Byz. Gr. v. «ξεπετῶ» ksepetô --> to spread out, finish doing something < Classical Gr. v. «ἐκπετάννυμι» ĕkpĕtắnnūmĭ --> to spread out (e.g. of a sail).
    «Ξεπέτα» [kse'peta] (fem.) is a slang term.
    «Ξεπετώ» [ksepe'to] is the verb.

    In French, some possibilities:
    "une aventure d'un soir" (a one-night affair)
    "une aventure sans lendemain" (an affair with no tomorrow)
    Very colloquial, quite vulgar
    :warn: "un coup d'un soir" (one-night shag, more or less)
