A university has banned energy drinks because they "promote risky sexual activity".
Students at Middlebury College in Vermont are bewildered after the move which Dan Detora - executive director of dining hall services - justified when speaking to NBC.
He said: "I see it as the equivalent of banning cigarettes"
However, a 2014 study into sexual risk-taking found people who drank the high-caffeine energy drinks were more likely to have promiscuous sex.
Thought fourth-year student Arnav Adhikari, who works at the college cafe, commented: "There are more important things for them to address. And what do energy drinks have to do with sexual activity?"
