- A heated discussion arose at the University of Augsburg’s Student Convention
Students have voted on whether to allow glory holes for anonymous sex in public toilets at a German university.
A heated discussion arose as the University of Augsburg’s Student Convention met at 6pm yesterday to discuss whether to allow the holes that are used for sexual purposes in the toilets at the lecture hall centre.
The students talked about the glory holes, or Sex-Löchern in German, for about an hour.
‘Three gloryholes are to be built in the lecture hall center opposite the entrance, where the information boards are currently located,’ the application text said, noting that the cabins should be soundproof and opaque.
But the suggestion sparked outcry, with the Ring of Christian Democratic Students arguing in an open letter to the university president that the establishment of glory holes at a university is ‘not only inappropriate, but also highly scandalous and unacceptable’.

Although some in attendance at the Student Convention were in support, it was concluded that the ‘suggestion that the proposal should be viewed as a joke proposal was accepted by a majority’.
A spokesman for the University of Augsburg told BILD: ‘The university management does not evaluate the agendas of the student convention and does not make a statement. It can be assumed that this agenda item is to be understood as satirical.’
But a university employee said: ‘The applicants are so woke, they don’t mean it as a joke.’
Other suggestions marked on the application included that the ‘height should be adjustable, there should be wall handles that you can hold on to’.
The application added: ‘The lights should be dimmable and possible knee padding should be installed. Condoms, lick wipes, lubricants and disinfectants and wipes should also be provided free of charge in the glory holes; trash cans will also be needed.’
The reasons for making the suggestion were also detailed.
‘A gloryhole would contribute to diversification on campus, as kink could also be experienced or lived at the university,’ the application put forward.
‘Sex can also be a relaxing activity, which can be very useful in the often stressful everyday university life. The associated stress reduction would ensure a more positive working atmosphere on campus.’
Another item on the agenda for the Student Convention meeting yesterday was a memorial for the campus cat Leon, who passed away on September 14.
