The University of Exeter’s Safer Sex Ball is once again making national headlines after footage has been leaked in which a couple appear to be having sex during the event. 

Filmed by the CCTV in the Ram, the university’s student bar, the four minute video was distributed across campus via smartphone service WhatsApp, becoming available to a large portion of students in a matter of hours.

The Student’s Guild, Exeter University’s Student Union, has launched an official investigation into how the video made its way from confidential CCTV to students. Devon and Cornwall police have gone on record as saying that whoever uploaded the video may have committed a crime, as well as the couple in the video depending on the sexual activity.

The Safer Sex Ball, commonly referred to as the SSB, is a charity event that has been raising money for AIDS research and local charities for the past 20 years. Despite raising awareness on safe sex, the event has always flirted with controversy due to the minimalistic nature of students’ costumes, as many choose to attend in their underwear. The sex tape scandal is the latest part of recent criticism, as last year’s ball already made the news as a small number of students dubbed the event’s “tribal” theme as racist.

One English undergraduate at the university commented: “It must be awful for the people in the video but I think it is far worse for the university, and the SSB in particular. It’s a shame that a charity event that raises over £30,000 a year is coming under scrutiny from the actions of people irresponsible enough to upload this kind of thing.”

Police are unlikely to investigate the matter as no official complaint has been made. The Student’s Guild intend to deal with the issue internally.
