Britain's horniest student to be thrown out of university?by Karam Filfilan 11th December 2013 11:50:33
The winner of Britain’s Horniest Student award – who claimed to sleep with up to three men a week and nicknamed herself the “Slutvian” – could be expelled from university after being hit with major disciplinary action by her institution.
Elina Desaine, an IT business management student at Exeter University, will face the disciplinary on the grounds of “causing reputational damage to the university”, reports Exeter student paper Exeposé.
Ms Desaine faced a backlash from students after winning the award sponsored by student hookup site ShagatUni.com, with the Daily Mail calling the competition “revolting”.
Her prize for winning the award included £500, a year’s supply of condoms and a new Samsung mobile phone.
However, sources close to Ms Desaine claim that her initial entry into the competition was fake and written “as a joke”, with her list of proudest university moments - such as having sex in the university computer room and bedding two union bartenders - being completely made up.
Possible sanctions facing Ms Desaine if she is found guilty include a fine of up to £500, community service, the signing of a behavioural contract and suspension from university.
A spokesperson for Exeter University’s Students’ Guild told Exeposé that the university’s disciplinary procedure was confidential, but that Ms Desaine had the right to get help from the Guild.
Tom Thurlow, founder of ShagatUni.com and creator of Britain’s Horniest Student was unavailable for comment.
