Walk of Shame

walk of shame by robert marbury

The walk of shame refers to where a person must walk past strangers or peers alone for an embarrassing reason before reaching a place of privacy. Most commonly, it occurs the morning after a night out at a bar, dance club, or party.

People undertaking the walk of shame are understood to have spent the night at the house, apartment, or dorm of a sexual partner (or perceived sexual partner), particularly a one night stand. The topic is often the subject of college newspaper commentary. The ‘walker’ may often be identified by his or her disheveled appearance and incongruous evening attire, particularly on Saturday or Sunday mornings.
