University Bans Energy Drinks Over 'Risky Sexual Activity' Fears

University Bans Energy Drinks Over 'Risky Sexual Activity' Fears

A university in Vermont has made the controversial decision to ban energy drinks following fears that they can "promote risky sexual behviour".

Yeah I know, I don't get it either.

Middlebury College will ban the sale of all energy drinks from 7 March - hopefully that's not around the same time as deadlines because those students will be screwed. Maybe switch to coffee?

But where did all of this come from? Well, the Mirror reported that a 2014 study into sexual risk-taking found risky sex was more common among those who regularly consumed energy drinks. So maybe this story isn't as ridiculous as it sounds.

They also found that another study suggested those who mixed booze and energy drinks were more likely to have casual sex. In my opinion, though, that just sounds like an issue with Jagerbombs.

What do you think of the ban? Good idea or just a bit weird?

Let us know in the comments below.
