Nottingham has been confirmed as the university ‘sex capital’ of Great Britain.
The news was broken by student hook-up site Shag at Uni after they analysed the usage of their app.
Data showed that 1,477 students in Nottingham visit the site daily, with Leeds a close second with just 67 less users per 24 hours.
Creator of the website Sam Thurlow said the title of “horniest university town” is nothing to be ashamed of, and students should not be looked down on for experimenting as long as they are safe.
Sex is a fundamental part of university life. It’s fantastic to see more and more students are using ShagAtUni to have some fun with each other without getting bogged down by the restrictions of traditional dating websites.
I think sites like this one play an important role in promoting the importance of safe sex within the student community, and I’m pleased we are able to do that and remove the stigma around casual sex.”
Students in Nottingham do not seem surprised one bit.
The site has courted some controversy in recent times, however, after a female student at the University of Exeter won £500 and the title of “Britain’s Horniest Student“.
Elina Desaine was set to be disciplined by the uni for her ‘joke entry’, with a spokesperson citing concerns for her ‘long term’ future.
University interviews for 16/17 will certainly be interesting, ‘and why do you want to come to Nottingham?’
