Tufts Institutes Dorm Room Sex Rule

coll_02

Tufts University recently announced a new rule for students’ sex lives.  Students are prohibited to have sex while their roommate is present.  Apparently they had a high number of complaints from roommates “who were sleeping, trying to sleep, or attempting to study (NY Times)”.  Study?  Eek.

Students quoted in the Tufts Daily had mixed reactions, most saying that roommates should work these situations out on their own without ResLife getting involved.  Hopefully, Wesleyan students are more courteous than Tufts students, and this policy doesn’t become a trend.

Freshmen, take heed.  Work out a system with your roommate.  Hook up with people in singles.  Tripled frosh — good luck getting any!

    I think this rule is very disgusting. How anyone can have sex while someone else is present in the room.  I think it depends on the mutual understandings of roommates that how to tackle this situation.

    Am I the only person who finds it utterly disgusting for a couple to have sex while someone else is in the room (and isn’t involved in any way)?
