This is how many university students are doing pornography to pay the bills
If you had a job during uni, you were probably working in a bar, behind a shop counter or handing out flyers for some debauched all-you-can-drink bar crawl.
That's still the case for many students, according to a new study into how students are funding their way through university with spiralling rents to pay.
But nowadays more than a third of students are finding jobs online - and earning themselves up to £189 a week in the process.
Selling clothes and blogging accounted for more than one third of the 995 students in the VoucherCodesPro study who said they did online work.
But a remarkable 11% of those said they did pornography to pay the bills while at uni. Another 19% said they did 'webcam work', which sounds pretty damn suspicious to us.
There were 4% who even said they had sold worn underwear to make ends meet.
These were the reasons given for taking up these unusual lines of online work....
- My student loan did not cover my rent – 31%
- I wanted extra money – 24%
- I enjoyed the work – 19%
- I liked the risk involved with the work – 18%
- I couldn’t get any other work – 12%
