When I was a freshman (1966), no women could be in male dorms or the dorm wings of "coed" dorms, let alone in the rooms. Men could stay out all night but women had a curfew (I think it was 11:30 weeknights, 1:00 AM weekends. The front door of a woman's dorm was a make-out fest at closing time. The big objective was to get a girl to "sign out" for the night. Of course, you better have some place to take her since your dorm room was off limits. By junior year all of that stuff was history.

Sparked a memory...I lived 1 year on campus in an all girls dorm, in a quad - 2 girls to each room with open space in between. One of the girls in the other room had a boyfriend who would come up on weekends and she told us she was going to sneak him in. We all objected. She went ahead with her plan anyway.
Her roommate was subjected to them getting it on in the same room. We could also hear them in our room. It was pretty gross.
So we other 3 made a rule that since the middle room was open, they had to use that with the RA room right across the hall, or we'd tell the RA what she was doing. They did the right thing and stayed off campus in a motel.
Peace was restored...

To aid in enforcement, the university is issuing tasers to all students.

The first thing that comes to mind, at least after the obvious thoughts on double standards and gender discrimination, is: Why would men want to stay out past a time when there could be no women around?

There was a time in the not too distant past when this statement would be considered an oxymoron.

Maybe because all the women to do find at that time will be the naughty ones.

This has nothing to do with the thread, but, Ms. Want2retire, that is a beautiful photo/avatar of you.

Anyone want to tell him?

Oh well, I will give him a hint. Mr. retiredtuna1, look at my profile under "About me", "interests".

I thought about it, but I think it is far better for him to think that the movie star looks just like you, W2R.

Yep...that's an actual photo....

I had a pic of my face as my avatar a couple of months ago, but I felt too exposed.

I'm not worried about exposing myself, I'm fully clothed - and like you, I'm wearing boots!
