Imagine dating a guy and after breaking up you hear all your intimate business from a friend of a friend!

Talk about a violation of trust and just being an all round jerk.
So you walked down the aisle, said your ‘I dos’, jumped the broom and jetted off to your exotic location where you soaked up all the sand, salt air, sun and sex that you could handle and had the time of your life.

Apparently the term ‘Netflix and chill’ is the millennial version of the 90s slang ‘booty call’ but for the sake of those who do not know what that means, we will keep it simple.
