OP-ED: Yeah, Sex Is Great and All, but Have You Ever Had a Schedule With No Recitations?

I have something to say. This might be an unpopular opinion, but here goes.

Sex is really cool and fun and dope, but there's one thing that's better. And that's having a schedule with no recitations.

Think about it. Sex requires lots of physical activity. You have to be in great shape to be good at it. On the other hand, when you don't have recitations, you can sleep as late as you want on Friday mornings, and lie in bed until the sun shines through your window as you lay there, immobile for the rest of time.

During sex, you have to deal with the complications of being next to another person, and the potential awkwardness that could entail.  When you don't have recitations, it means you get to spend even more hours a day by yourself, not interacting with classmates or overeager TAs, and comforted by your own loneliness.

I mean, I get it. Sex is pretty great. But having control over your own time and academic commitments? Even better.
