Kids These Days

I haven’t been able to finish one full post in over a week so wanted to get something short up this morning. More in the works for the end of the week.

A friend of mine sent me this link yesterday.

The gist: Tufts University took it upon themselves to insert the following in their 2009-10 guest policy, “You may not engage in sexual activity while your roommate is present in the room.”

Ahh the days when all we had to worry about was whether or not our roommate would walk in on our latest college fling (which mine did, with cereal in hand, at 3 am, and stayed to make conversation).

I have to say though, in the dorms, with a shared room, we didn’t have many problems working out with roommates a policy (sock on the door for the boys, hair band for the girls). If a boyfriend/girlfriend was in from out of town, the roommate made her/himself scarce and stayed in a friend’s room or apartment.

Not sure what about our simple, self-implemented policies kids these days can’t understand…to the point that Tufts had to take it upon themselves to make it law.

    It’s probably because roommates were STAYING to watch, or FILMING or something. Kids these days are CRAZY. Yikes.

      There is a semi-new Anita Shreve book called Testimony that is about high school kids filming themselves having sex. It’s disturbing, and at times hard to read, but I couldn’t put it down. It definitely makes you think.

      Thanks for the comments Blondie. I love your blog.

    Ok, seriously? I mean isn’t that part of the whole collegiate experience, to be able to laugh ten years later about stuff like this. My roommate used to put headphones on to prevent her from hearing me and my boyfriend making out. I would opt to leave when she did the same, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t walk in a time or too.
