Sex in a Tufts University dorm is fine. Sex in a Tufts dorm with your roommate present? That’s a no-no.
The Massachusetts school has a new policy banning sexual activity while a roommate is in the same room. Kim Thurler, a university spokeswoman, said the school issued the rule after about a dozen complaints in the last three years.
The new policy concerning overnight guests reads: “You may not engage in sexual activity while your roommate is present in the room.” It mentions no consequences if the rule is broken, however.
Tufts has campuses in Boston, Medford/Somerville and Grafton.
Thurler said, “It’s really about respect and consideration, and it’s a question of how roommates utilized their space.”
