‘A Duke University student, Karen Owen, has become an internet hit after a graphic “PowerPoint presentation” was leaked detailing her sex conquests with more than a dozen men. The 22 year-old graduate produced the unofficial “senior honours thesis” on her alcohol-fuelled sexual flings, mostly with male athletes from the Duke Lacrosse team. The 42 page PowerPoint Presentation, titled “An education beyond the classroom: excelling in the realm of horizontal academics”, describes her “subjects” in almost scientific detail.

‘Each of her 13 lovers are named and pictured – sometimes partially naked – while intimate details are also revealed. She details their “pros” and “cons” and ranks their sexual prowess out of 10 in coloured charts and an “official f—” list. The brutally frank “kiss and tell” – submitted to the “Department of Late-Night Entertainment in partial fulfilment of the requirements for a Degree in Tempestuous Frolicking” – was originally meant as a joke when emailed to three friends after she graduated in May. But it was subsequently leaked to the university’s 14,000 student population before becoming a global viral hit’ – The Daily Telegraph.
