A student caught performing live internet sex shows at her university library may have been doing it to be able to afford to study.
The pupil at the University of Newcastle, in New South Wales, Australia, was broadcasting her X-rated antics on pay per view internet sites, according to the Newcastle Herald.
Users had been alerted about the performances at the Auchmuty campus library on social media, although they were probably not aware they were taking place there.
Clare Swan, who is president of the University’s student’s association, thought the girl may have been struggling for money.
‘Newcastle has a high enrolment of students from low socio-economic background – it’s 26 per cent,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘The question shouldn’t be any sort of judgement or about the morals involved.
‘Our primary concern should be the health and safety of the student.’
A spokeswoman for the University of Newcastle confirmed the woman had been counselled.
