Some Colleges Tell Students If And When They Can Have Sex. From HuffPo.

Should colleges have a say in students' sexual activity? Policies at some of our nation's top universities say yes.

The student government at Baylor University proposed removing a ban on "homosexual acts" from the school's honor code last year. But in its place, any sex outside of marriage would still remain banned.

Brigham Young University is even stricter. The Mormon school's honor code forbids any sexual activity that goes beyond kissing.

Perhaps students should expect such oversight from both universities, with their religious affiliations. However, some secular universities also enforce such policies. Barnard College has rule that forbids overnight guests for more than three consecutive nights and no more than six nights a month.


  1. This is reasonable given the disruptions that can ensue from lots of sex in the dorms. I had a problem one year in which I had to get up at 6 AM on Saturday for work, and I was routinely awakened at 2 AM Saturday mornings by the sound of vigorous bedspring action coming through the ventilator duct.

    In general, I think Barnard has it right. More than that and you are disrupting your roommate's life unduly. If you are that into it, get a private room. Off campus.
