These Dorm Mates' Notes About Too Loud Sex Are Actually Sex-Positive & Empowering AF
Remember in college, when you heard your dorm mates having super loud sex and you remembered how super single you were, then proceeded to repeatedly pound your fist into the adjoining wall and blast reruns of the Britney Spears episode of Glee to drown them out? Even if you did not live my nerd-specific version of this truth, you no doubt endured your fair share of dorm sex shenanigans, including and not limited to being sexiled, walking in on your roommate ~doing it~, and hearing sex everywhere. Well, these dorm mates' notes about loud sex that were exchanged at Syracuse University over the weekend just put every one of those sexperiences you had in college to shame, because they are supportive and lovely and sex-positive as hell.
The now viral tweet of the exchange started by Jenna Levine began on Oct. 30, when her dorm mates were having some loud fun times. (Bustle has reached out to Levine for comment and will update this article upon hearing back.) Rather than take the passive aggressive approach that my collegiate self once did, Levine took matters into her own hands, penning a super respectful and low key hilarious note requesting that her dorm mates take it down just a notch.
Please have sex a little more quietly please. Some of us are trying to nap and not be reminded how alone I am...feel free to make all the love you want. Just please, make it nasty at a lower volume. Thank you!
What happened next is really just a testament to how awesome Gen Z is as a generation. I seriously cannot wait for these sex-positive, super supportive teens of today to inherit the earth, because sorry, fellow Millennials, but a large portion of us were garbage in our youth when it came to things like this (myself included). Later that day, Levine's dorm mates not only responded with this incredibly kind and thoughtful note of their own, but also included CHOCOLATE.
Dearest neighbors,I'm so so incredibly sorry about that. I didn't realize how loud I was being, and ya know, sometimes having loud sex is low key kinda hot but obviously at your cost, which I apologize so sincerely for. I'm so so sorry, I hope this hasn't occurred too often, and thanks so much for the incredible and hilarious card. I will for sure try to make it nasty at a significantly lower level. And hey, don't you worry, you're not alone forever. The right person will come along when the time comes. I was single for 18 years. Haha. Once again, I apologize so sincerely and deeply.Sorry, Room 338.
No, I'm not crying, I just have the power of this majestic friendship stuck in my eye!! The exchange has resonated so much with the rest of the internet that it has now generated a whopping 47,000 retweets since this past weekend.
Let this be an example to all of us, for there are so many lessons to learn from this, including and not limited to:
- You're allowed to say something when you are annoyed! You don't have to hold it inside of you until it festers in your dark soul and manifests into passive-aggressively blasting Glee reruns!
- There is literally nothing to be embarrassed about when it comes to sex. PERIOD. All sex noise situations should be handled this maturely and hilariously.
- We all should aspire to be as supportive of each other as these two humans are.
In conclusion, Jenna Levine/Her Dorm Mates For President, 2024.
