Colleges With Strict Sex Rules

Strict-on-Sex Colleges

Brigham Young University's star basketball player Brandon Davies was dismissed from the team for breaking the school's code of conduct regarding premarital sex. And while some may find BYU's stipulations shocking — no foul language; abstain from alcohol, tobacco, tea, coffee, and drugs; no gambling, use of pornography, and homosexual behavior; no beards (?) — I actually attended a private college with similar rules ("dancing" is still listed as a no-no in our code of conduct), so I know there are other strict schools out there. Ready for more surprising collegiate sex rules?

  1. Students of the opposite sex aren't allowed to talk or interact outside of a "chaperoned" area. — Pensacola Christian College
  2. Members of the opposite sex can only visit each other's dorm rooms during certain hours and in certain areas. — Point Loma Nazarene University
  3. Members of the opposite sex cannot be alone in the bedroom on or off campus. — Liberty University
  4. Dating couples aren't allowed to do more than hold hands (one hand, not two). — Clearwater Christian College
  5. Students aren't allowed to be alone in homes or apartments with the opposite sex. — Ozark Christian College

Did you attend a rules-heavy university? What was your experience?

I think people are forgetting that he chose to go there. And also - he wasn't found it. He fessed up to it. I think these rules are ridiculous, but if you know what you're getting into you have to suffer the consequences. I feel so bad that they suspended him for the rest of the season; though I've heard he's lucky they didn't expel him. I'm not really sure why he told anybody!

I went to an art college. There was some controversy when they tried to implement a no nudity rule in spaces open to the public.

Hmm, I'm just not shocked. I'm not surprised that a religious university would expect students there to follow the general rules for that particular religion. If you have to follow those rules to be a Mormon, why would you expect to get to behave any differently going to a Mormon school?

I attend BYU-Idaho. We aren't allowed to wear shorts. At all, no matter what the length. I don't agree with this rule, since it's not even a rule of the LDS church, but I chose to attend this school and therefore I will abide by all the rules. All students have to sign a contract stating that they will abide by the Honor Code, otherwise they will be expelled. Since BYU is a private, church-funded school I don't think there should be a big deal about this. He chose to attend this school, he chose to break the Honor Code, and he now suffers the consequences, I only feel sorry that this has to be so public for him. I'm sure he feels bad for what he did, and the public scrutiny won't help. I hope his friends, parents, and fellow church members can withhold judgment; he should be seen for who he is, not the mistakes he made.

Ah yes, Pensacola. My proud hometown. Pensacola Christian College also used to have an attraction called Dinosaur Adventureland, which claimed man and dinosaurs lived on earth at the same time. I think it's closed now though.

I go to school in Canada, and pretty much every University I know of is government funded, and doesn't care who you bang.I've never heard of rules like that at the University-level (18+) until I heard about this story. Maybe they exist here too, just not to my knowledge. People are talking about it like its a matter of fact, but this is so batshit crazy in my eyes, a university telling you not to drink coffee and where you're allowed to touch your boyfriend. Why would anyone agree to go there?!

I mean, you have to choose to go to a college like this. If you choose to go there, then don't be shocked or angry if you break the rules, you'll be disciplined

BYU a Mormon university. Most of the students belong to the Mormon church, and follow most of those guidelines anyway (though I'd never heard the 'no beards' thing). I am so glad that I had the choice to take my secular self to a secular college with a bar on campus, just like Christian university students chose to attend Christian colleges with strict codes of conduct.

"Members of the opposite sex can only visit each other's dorm rooms during certain hours and in certain areas." Is that abnormal? We had to have guys out of our dorm rooms by 11pm or something like that, and had to sign them in and out. I went to a totally public, totally nonreligious university.
