COLLEGE HORROR STORIES: Worst. Sexile. Ever.
Video: How to Sexile With Class (a video for The Prospect)
This week on The Prospect I wrote an article about sexiling like a lady. It comes from my experiences with my roommate, and from talking to a lot of my friends.
From these conversations, I learned quite a few sexile horror stories.
What you should take from them? Be kind, be considerate, and know when to put your foot down.
A friend of mine wanted to have sex with his girlfriend, but his roommate (and another one of their friends) was in the room. They ended up in a sort of game of chicken, where the couple decided to start going at it, and the friends, thinking they would stop, started watching adventure time (very loudly). In their quests to win, nobody won.
Another horror story: Someone I know was in a triple freshman year where there was a bunk bed, and a loft bed.
So girl 1 (the one I know) was on the bottom bunk, and girl 2 was on the loft bed. Girl 3 enjoyed having a lot of sex, with multiple people, at the same time, while her roommates were still in the room, in bed (either under her or across from her).
Another one of my friends once told me that sexiles were stupid and “that’s what noise cancelling headphones are for” *shudder*
And, finally, I had a friend who lived in a triple with two other girls. She wanted her boyfriend to stay in the room every night. The other girls were not comfortable with it, but the roommate ignored them and tried to sneak him in after the other girls went to bed.
These are just some of the sexile horror stories I know.
So if your roommate is being unreasonable, don’t be afraid to go to a higher power (your RA) or ask for a room change.
But remember, no matter what side of the door you’re on, there are ways to do it with class.
Stay classy everyone.
