Thousands of university students around the country are having sex for money and selling their underwear online as they struggle to make ends meet on student loans .
New research has shown that one in 25 students are involved in adult work , including selling intimate pictures, selling their underwear, sugar dating, and having sex for money .
Four per cent of undergraduates admitted to trying adult work, compared with two per cent in 2017 and three per cent in 2018. This means the proportion has doubled in just two years - and could mean as many as 70,000 undergraduates could now be involved.
The survey also showed a further six per cent of students would consider adult work if they needed money in an emergency.
