The female lover roommates always come back with some goodies which they share with their roommates as a kind gesture or as a way of bribing her to play cool when her man visits. The female ones always take the lead.

The male lover roommates would always invite their girlfriends on daily basis, and stylishly alert their roommates to give them some space to have some lovely fun.
