  • There are two different questions here.

    Have sex. No, not every situation involving male/female roommates ends up in sex. That it is not to say that it can't happen, only that it won't necessarily. There are so many other variables involved that to make it a hard and fast rule is to greatly oversimplify male/female dynamics.

    Nudity, on the other hand, is more likely - especially for guys who tend to be casual about such things. Throw in the male evolutionary instinct to display and simple coincidence when living together within a confined space - and sooner or later roommates are apt to see each other naked.

    In both cases you are dealing in probabilities and not certainties. However, nudity is far, far more likely. It takes less intent to be seen naked. Whereas sex is a conscious and agreed choice between two people.

    Of course, how two people handle seeing each other nude is another question. Overall, though, given enough time, rooommates, guys or girls or some combination of the two, are bound to run into each other, so to speak. Call it the law of averages.

  • I know a few women and guys, who have had room mates of the opposite sex, and they never had sex. If they are careful, they will not see each other naked, but many, partially depending on the lay out of the apartment, find it too much of a pain to always be absolutely sure they are never seen. Personally, one female roommate saw me naked, when there was an emergency, and I saw another roommate's tits, though she didn't know. None of it was sexual, just happenstance. I wasn't even embarrassed when she saw me naked, as almost all the attention was on the emergency, and I know she had no sexual attraction to me. It was almost like a sister or guy friend seeing me.

  • It works if you have friend zoned the room mate. I wouldn't have a room mate unless I have known them for awhile. I would like to make sure we get along well because with someone you don't know, you could have a room mate from hell. But if you got a room mate that is really someone you could get into relationship wise, and hormones being what they are, I can see it possibly happening. If , for instance, only the girl feels an attraction, it could be awkward because she would be walking around half undressed or naked a lot.

  • In my experience, roommates of the opposite sex tend to act like brother and sister.

  • Have sex?
    No, not always.
    See eachother naked?
    Definitivly.
    You don't live with someone long term without doing so...
    But nudity and sex isn't the same thing.
    And nudity don't need to be sexual unless you *make* it sexual.

  • The one time I had a female roommate we saw each other nude quite often, but never had sex or fooled around. We were just comfortable with each other.

  • Obviously if at least one is gay, there will be no sex.

  • Pfff I think most roommates haven't had sex with one another. Especially if there is an understanding amongst one another or one has a bf/gf or something. As well, usually there is an unwritten rule that you shouldn't have sex with a roommate.

  • I have a male roommate right now who I haven't had sex with

  • Of course that's possible

  • From my experience if you live with people you'll probably see them naked by accident at some point, but you don't sleep together

  • If they both are in separate committed relationships. If they are not each other’s type, he likes bigger girls and she’s tiny. If they were not culturally taught to go just “hit that”. If it’s clear going it that it’s a roommate situation and completely plutonic and both can abide by the rules.

  • For me B, it's a question of respect and discipline.
    Also, it's not because you put two people from the opposite sex in a room that they'll fall in love.

  • I think it's possible, although over time it's likely that accidentally the roommates might see each other naked.

  • Of course not all opposite sex roommates have sex.

  • I meant to choose second one

  • they often end up having sex.
    Some regret it, others not

  • It's possible, but you're setting yourself up for trouble.

  • I had a woman roommate that yeah we pretty much saw each other naked or next to nothing more than once but we never did anything sexual

  • I think if you have it settled already that she's not the girl for you. And mean it. However let's get real the temptation is there. And if the girl is tour sister.

  • Never had sex with a roomate lol

  • Possible to see them in underwear and naked; sex is possible but not probable, unless they have the hots for each other; or get drunk!!!

  • No not all roommates have sex.

  • it's illegal
