6. After sex. If you’re in love you sleep in the wet spot.

“I was in a class in college called ‘Human Sexuality.’ At one point we were talking about love vs. lust vs. obsession. The professor asks what the real difference between love and lust is. A bunch of different people have opinions, and we have a pretty good discussion for about 15-20 minutes.

It’s starting to die down a bit, but before the professor can move on, this one kid in the back, who had not participated so far in the class, just says: ‘You sleep in the wet spot.’

The Professor asks him for more details.

‘After sex. If you’re in love you sleep in the wet spot.’

The class pretty much unanimously agreed his was the best answer.”
