St. Andrews Named “Britons Most Promiscuous University”
New data released by a controversial student dating site has revealed the top ten ‘most promiscuous’ universities in Britain. The statistics are based on the number of student sign ups to the website from each area since its launch as well as the average monthly visits to the site from each university. St Andrews University in Scotland, which counts Prince William and Kate Middleton as former graduates, emerged at the top of the list. Other universities making the top ten list included Oxford, Manchester and Leeds.
An alternative student ‘dating’ website has decided to reveal the top ten “most sexually promiscuous” universities in the UK, with St. Andrews University in Scotland reaching the top of the list. The results are based on the number of individual sign-ups to the site and also looks at the number of students from each university that have upgraded their profiles in order to receive the full benefits of the site.
The study was conducted by www.ShagAtUni.com, a dating site designed specifically for the use of those at university, which gives members the chance to find fellow students online for the purpose of sexual encounters. The team at the site recently noticed that students from certain universities were signing up in larger quantities than some of their more populated higher education facilities, and decided to investigate further.
The top ten list below was created by taking into account which universities most members on the website went to, and how often they then visit the site in an average month.
The top 10 most promiscuous universities in the UK, established on where the most ShagAtUni.com members are based (along with the average amount of times students from that university visited the site in a month) were revealed as follows:
1. University of St. Andrews – 9.8 (Average number of times in a month students visit the site)
2. University of Leeds – 9.2
3. Oxford University – 8.4
4. Birmingham City University – 8.1
5. University of Manchester – 7.8
6. London South Bank University – 7.2
7. Southampton Solent University – 6.9
8. University of Reading – 6.3
9. University of Wolverhampton – 5.6
10. University Of West of England (UWE) – 5.1
In correlation to this list, universities including Cambridge, Aberdeen and Falmouth had the lowest return rate to the Shag at Uni site, with individual monthly visits averaging 2.9, 2.4 and 1.8 visits a month respectively.
Creator of ShagAtUni, Tom Thurlow, made the following comment:
“The visitors to the website are up on last year’s statistics by over 40%, further evidence to support that students are spending more time on sites like Shag at Uni to hook up with partners rather than rely on conventional methods to find a sexual partner. I’ve got to say, I absolutely love the fact that students from prestigious universities such as St. Andrews and Oxford seem to be such fans of our site! Let’s face it; it’s one of the more controversial hook-up sites out there. It may seem fairly shocking, but when you really stop and think about it, it makes perfect sense.”
“Students at St. Andrews and Oxford seem to have little else to keep them entertained apart from casual encounters and there’s also the old saying of “work hard, play harder”. Who knows, maybe if our site had been around ten years ago, Prince William and Kate Middleton could have been fans! On second thoughts…”
