Student distraught as ‘sex thesis’ goes viral

It must have seemed a good idea at the time, but 22-year-old Karen Owen, a student at Duke University, North Carolina, was left with some explaining to do when a Powerpoint presentation detailing her sexual conquests was leaked onto the internet.

What started out as a joke to share with friends quickly backfired when some considerate soul decided the university’s 14,000 student population were missing out. The document subsequently became a global viral sensation.

Entitled 'An education beyond the classroom: excelling in the realm of horizontal academics', the 42-page presentation gave intimate details of poor Karen’s exploits with her fellow students, including their ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ and ranking their sexual prowess out of ten on a coloured chart.

A repentant Ms Owen is said to be devastated, declaring, ‘I regret it with all my heart,’ while university authorities have promised to ‘reach out to those affected by the incident’.

It seems that there’s no such thing as a harmless frollick in the internet age.
