Let’s talk about the morning after, the day after your amazing night out when you had a certain kind of fun. We have to walk out into the daylight still looking good and everybody knows that you did not spend the night at your own place. Why should this be a walk of shame? It should be a walk of pride! Empower yourself and be confident about your choices. Not convinced? Here are 10 reasons why a walk of shame is actually a stride of pride.
1. You got the man you wanted.
You were looking good all night, danced and chatted with the guy you wanted, and ended up leaving with him. That walk means that you got what you wanted, and why would you apologize for that?
2. You get a self-esteem boost.
When you walk outside, you start remembering how well your night went. This should make you walk confidently. There’s no shame in having sex, so don’t let society tell you otherwise! Have pride and show the world.

Sex is fun, so why should we limit one another? If a guy and a girl want to have sex, let them! And don’t judge them for it the next day when you see them walking home.
4. Love your body.

5. Rock that outfit.
