Some time ago I came across a website of poems... Listed there were some poems by a poet, who wrote about his liaisons (brief; so-called "one night stands", shall we say) with women. I'd like to know his name (or other poets who wrote like that).
If it's any help to you, I recall that it was not a commercial website, and had poems of Cavafy and some other popular poets as well.

Will pay more if the answers are satisfactory :)

With so little to go on, I suspect it will be well-nigh impossible to locate the website that you're remembering. Any additional clues would be helpful.

This page has links to several poems that you might like:

All the poems could be classified as classical. And the website was one person's personal endeavour, could be part of a personal home page. All the poets were old and rather well known. Cavafy's Ithaca was definitely there, but then again, it's almost everywhere.

Pinkfreud, thanks for the try :) I know it's a hard one... No hard data to start with.

Anyone live in Massachusetts?  I've heard that a lot of great erotic poetry was written by a man from Nantucket.

The poems I had in mind are not erotic at all, though that's largely subjective. The poet describes the woman, the location, time of day, feelings etc.

Well, thanks to everyone who tried. Maybe some other time...

I _am_ a bit disappointed. But pinkfreud was right. There wasn't much to go on on.

Hi syspriv,

I'm sorry we couldn't find the answer to this one. I just want to let you know that many of Uclue's researchers worked on this, and came up blank.

Thanks for posting this intriguing question.
