Recently, Elina Desaine was officially crowned the UK’s horniest student by ShagAtUni for keeping a “shag list” and sleeping with up to three men a week at Exeter University. Desaine claims that alcohol enables her to become “even hornier” and that “sometimes I go clubbing, have sex with someone, and then go back to the club to pick up my second victim.”
Firstly, it goes without saying that this is disgusting. The details provided by Desaine into how she acquires her ‘victims’ is vulgar enough, before you discover that she was awarded £500 for this type of behaviour. Why would you designate such a large amount of money to a woman that can demonstrate her sexual demeanour publicly and be proud of it? She has been rewarded for keeping a “shag list” of her victims: surely the common expectation is that you are aware of whom you are sleeping with and that you shouldn’t need to accumulate a list to remember who you wake up next to in the morning.
Secondly, what is this saying about sex? It is quite clear that over time sex has been considered as a recreational activity far more than previous generations. Having sex outside the confinements of marriage is by no means a crime and I am in not condemning a liberal approach towards it. But, with the nature of the act being so intimate, why on earth would you want to air your dirty laundry in such a public environment? It reduces the idea of sex as a declaration of emotion and in reality is an invitation to a Chlamydia party.
The Huffington Post article said that “Desaine who has nicknamed herself ‘Slutvian’, is studying IT Business Management at the Russell Group institution and says she has sex with at least two or three different people a week.”
Does this girl genuinely believe that she will walk out of her degree obtaining any job offers from anywhere else other than a brothel? We are living in a society of increasing opportunities for women; there are an abundance of women who strive to promote the concept of femininity as a beneficial input into a business environment. This student is doing none other than making the notions of powerful businesswomen redundant. To behave in such a way is a personal choice: whatever she may engage in behind closed doors is none of our business; yet, she is sending out a public message that women should be rewarded for publicising indecent sexual behaviour, including her all time goal to sleep with her university lecturer.
Thirdly, Tom Thurov, creator of the ShagAtUni site that launched the competition said:
“I love the fact that she uses her position in the computer science club to have sex in the computer room.”
I can’t speak for everyone, but when I approach Haslegrave to begin my formative assignments, I’d most likely vomit if I thought that someone had just had sex within inches of my keyboard. I’m also certain that parents and students would be less than impressed with the prospect of their fees contributing towards the maintenance of university facilities, which are abused by this individual that uses it for non-educational purposes.
Desaine allegedly “strips naked to the Baywatch theme tune when it plays in a club” and considers it as an example of her “proudest moments”. I actually feel quite sorry for her that she doesn’t have a hobby that distinguishes her from the abilities of the rest of the population. No wonder the government are fretting about providing better sex education.
