Sex and the roommate may create a lot of issues and can leave you unable to do your homework at critical times. Once you and your new dorm mate have settled in, picked your beds, and learned each other’s names you might want to talk about setting ground rules for your room. It’s easier to discuss it now before anything, well, comes up. There are lots of awkward scenarios that may cause future drama if you don’t deal with this issue before the fact.
Discuss whether it’s acceptable to sexile each other; if yes is the universal sign of the sock on the door sufficient or should it be something else? Do you view sex as something so wrong to you that you really just need your roomie to find another place for these activities? Is it okay to wake up in the middle of the night to, ummm, the siren sounds of them – doing it? Are you allowed to watch since you’re being forced to listen or do you make wake up noises to make it stop? These and other questions are good to ask before the fact.
You may as well know which schools have been identified by Playboy as those best known for having the best student sex lives:
1) University of North Carolina;
2) New York University;
5) Yale University; and
6) Syracuse University.
"Omg", you say, "I wanted to go to Yale but not if there is a continuous sex fest!" Where are the safest places for you to attend school?
Well, that depends on how you’re defining safe. Is safe defined as a school with a well-defined goal of making school a place where no means no (i.e., charges of rape are taken seriously) and yes means you have access to condoms and health services? Or is safe defined as schools where there is reportedly not a lot of sex going on?
A survey by Sperling’s 2012 Sexual Health Report Card and Trojan (yes, the condom company – who do you think is interested in the sex lives of students?) lists top schools that provide the best environment for sexual health are:
1) University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign;
2) Brown University;
3) Columbia University;
4) Princeton University;
5) University of Wisconsin – Madison;
7) University of Arizona;
8) University of Iowa;
9) Colorado State University; and
10) Oregon State University.
According to a Playboy survey, the schools with the least amount of sex happening at school are:
1) U.S. Air Force Academy;
2) Brigham Young University;
3) Providence College;
4) Troy State University;
5) Chicago State University;
6) University of New Orleans;
7) St. John’s University of New York;
8) Louisiana Tech University;
9) Savannah State University; and
10) Seton Hall University.
Please note, this doesn’t conclusively mean the students aren’t getting sexually involved. It’s saying they may be abstaining from sex or just aren’t admitting to it.
