Hallmark fails to stimulate

By Jewell Della Valle

If conventional wisdom were to hold, the build-up that leads in the weeks of build up to Valentine’s Day would culminate in the desire for passionate sex.

With the question put to them, though, some Northeastern students said that in terms of sex, Valentine’s Day is just another day on the calendar.

“[I don’t want to have sex on Valentine’s Day] more than another day,” said Christie O’Laughlin, a freshman undecided major. “I think it’s a made-up, Hallmark holiday.”

Adeolu Odewale, a fourth-year pharmacy major, also said Valentine’s Day isn’t a special occasion for sex.

“It’s like any other day,” he said. “I don’t think just because it’s Valentine’s Day people want to have sex.”

Some people said a day dedicated to love and romance makes some people want to hit the bedroom.

Erin Shellnut, a chemistry graduate student, believes in the idea of Valentine’s Day sex.

“It’s a romantic holiday,” Shellnut said. “I think it’s an expected romantic day that you’re supposed to have sex on.”

Some students said romance has a part in most people’s decisions to have sex on Valentine’s Day.

Cindy Goncalves, a middler finance major, believes that sex on Valentine’s Day does have more importance than on a regular day.

“[Sex] would probably be more special,” she said.

Perhaps Valentine’s Day isn’t a special occasion to initiate sex, but a holiday that can make sex more meaningful than the everyday adventure.
