Website: 'Shag at Uni'
A new website has been launched to allow university students to meet for casual sex and its designer claims it is being dominated by female students at Oxford。
Tom Thurlow's 'shagatuni.com' encourages members to send each other saucy messages and meet up for no-strings-attached liaisons. It allows users to post a Facebook-style profile which explicitly advertises what they are looking for in a sexual partner。
Mr Thurlow claims the biggest uptake so far appears to have been from young women studying at Oxford University. He says statistics show a whopping 722 women from Oxford signed up since the site launched in October。
But Oxford’s bitter rivals Cambridge University prove to be the most prudish - with the lowest amount of members in the whole country。
'The site is aimed at 18-30s university students, college students and people who may be friends of students.' he said。
'I am not surprised. When I tour the country filming MTV Freshers the Oxford students are always the most wild。
'They are always uptight in the day but by night they were always the craziest. It doesn’t surprise me they have the highest proportion of women looking for sex.'
The seedy site advertises itself as a space for students to have sex without 'the strings attached with dating'. It boasts 26,933 members with 18,400 men and 8,533 women signing up for membership since it went live two months ago。
Some of the academic members even include naked self portraits and explicit details of where and how they like to have sex。
Mr Thurlow, who has never studied at University, said: 'At uni it is all night parties, partying on a Monday, Wednesday never mind the weekends。
'People don’t go to university anymore to learn, they just want to have a good time - and part of that is having lots of sex. I think the reason the site is so popular is that students don’t want commitment and they just want a casual lifestyle。
Membership is a one off £5 for men and free for women giving users the chance to message each other, “wink” at each other and arrange to meet。
