Working part-time in the dining hall apparently isn't cutting it these days to help pay the bills. University students in the U.K. who don't want to graduate with thousands of dollars in student loans are taking their financial destinies into their own hands by turning to prostitution, according to a new study. Ten percent of British college students said they knew a fellow student who had worked as a prostitute or escort in 2010, up from 4 percent in 2000.
The sex-for-textbooks solution may seem especially appealing to medical students, who usually amass significant IOUs and attend school for far longer than their undergraduate counterparts, according to the study's author. @itsfraturday snickers: "For all of you hardworking Pre-Med majors, looks like it's all going to pay off."
