University. There’s girls, boys and no parents. Throw a load of raging hormones into the mix and sex is inevitable. However, there are a number of rules to keep in mind…
1. DON’T sleep with your flatmate.
No matter how attractive your flatmates are: DON’T go there. It won’t just be awkward The Morning After, there’s that afternoon, the evening, the morning after that…
You’ve heard it a million times before and, without wanting to be patronising, this really is important. No one wants genital warts, AIDS or a baby. Just keep it wrapped, please.
3. DON’T mix sex and alcohol.
4. DO be careful when sharing a single bed.
5. DON’T confuse sex with commitment.
6. DO stay safe.
If you do want a one night stand, make sure your friends know where you are. Never leave with a total stranger.
7. DON’T neglect your sleep.
8. DO have fun.
This is what sex is all about. We’re in our prime: young, healthy and horny – so make the most of it now. After university, life will get in the way. DO have fun, DO enjoy yourself, but most importantly, DO stay safe!
