How much will college students pay for sex?
Those Eastern Europeans are pushing their newfound capitalism where us old-style capitalists fear to tread. Good for them! With a little price testing they may find they can afford to get rid of regular tuition altogether.
The Alexandru Ioan Cuza Univeristy in Iasi [Romania] charges £4 each time a boyfriend of girlfriend spends the night with one of the 1,800 people living on campus.
One dormitory manager said: "If they want to spend the night with their girlfriends or boyfriends then they should pay. This is not their home. And it is not such a high price to pay."
He added that hundreds had already paid the charge, with male students particularly keen to pay and saving the receipts to show friends.
The university hopes to raise about £28,000 a year which will go towards repairs at the dormitories. [Ananova]
