Touch And Go

one night stand; a casual sexual encounter

Often causing confusion with native English speakers, "touch and go" has a very different meaning in Argentina. While in English it is used to refer to a delicate situation, in Argentina it is used to refer to casual sexual encounters, usually just lasting one night. The people "touch", then go in the morning.
