Safe sex ball at university
THOUSANDS of students are set to strip down to their underwear, and less, for one of the country's biggest fundraisers for Aids charities.
The 2008 Safer Sex Ball, organised by Exeter University's Raising and Giving Society, will be held on December 1 and 2,500 people will attend.
The event is thought to be the UK's biggest Aids Awareness Event. All profits go to charity and last year £34,000 was raised for Positive Action South West.
It offers advice and assistance to people living with HIV and their carers, and seeks to raise awareness and understanding through a comprehensive programme of training and education.
Third year student Nic Macbeth said: "I went to the ball in my first year and I've been every year since.
"Memories of it are the kind of thing I'd tell the grandkids, though I don't think it'd be entirely appropriate."
