University Bans DJ For Doing \\\\\\\'Vile\\\\\\\' Sex Games On Stage

University Bans DJ For Doing 'Vile' Sex Games On Stage

The Debrief: Lee Watson held a game of musical sttatues, except when the music stopped, all the participants had to hump each other...

Would you go to a ‘club reps’ night at university? Maybe yes, or maybe you’d rather stay home eating cold sick. But regardless, if you’re at Hull University looking to go to that ‘club rep’ night, you can now go safe in the knowledge that, at no point, will reality star Lee Watson be there, working as a DJ and encouraging students to do musical statues – but with sex moves.

This is because he has been banned from doing any Hull events after making students at Asylum – a club, not an actual asylum, though you do wonder why they give clubs these names – simulate sex with each other. The DJ was holding a competition and the game was pretty much to form a sexual position whenever he stopped the music. Like sexy musical statues.

He would then bark things like, ‘Cheer if you want to fuck this girl. She’s keen, form a queue. I’m first!’

Lee also urged contestants – all in the running to win a free trip to Croatia – to remove their bras and swap clothes. He made one male contestant shout, repeatedly, ‘Who’s your daddy’, while simulating sex with a girl, in order to stay in the running.

The club night was in town, but had been organised by the student union.

Students were unimpressed, with 22-year-old Kimberly Houghton telling the BBC: ‘He was saying some quite vile things on stage.’ Clubbers allegedly left the club out of disgust at the performance, and the union has now responded by banning Lee from DJing at its events.

It released a statement saying: ‘It is important to us that our members have a great time in our venues and we are committed to Hull University Union continuing to be an inclusive, welcoming and accepting space.

‘We accept that we got this wrong and would like to reassure all of our members that we have already taken steps to ensure that future bookings plan their acts in accordance with our values and policies.’

What do you think of this? If all the students are made aware of the sex game gimmick beforehand, then should it be such a problem? Or is it a bit gross for university unions – presumably above this sort of thing, with a responsibility – to be indulging in the naff party games made famous by bored and boozed up holidaymakers in trashy resorts?
