The Robin Thicke song Blurred Lines has been banned from all Edinburgh University student Union venues over its alleged references to non-consensual sex.

All student union buildings will now enforce a ban on playing the song, which features lyrics like “I know you want it, but you’re a good girl”.

The move comes after outrage at a recent performance of the song at the MTV awards with Miley Cyrus, in which a provocative performance featured overtly sexual overtones.

EUSA vice president Kirsty Haigh said: “The decision to ban ‘Blurred Lines’ from our venues has been taken as it promotes an unhealthy attitude towards sex and consent.

“There is a zero tolerance towards sexual harassment, a policy to end lad culture on campus and a safe space policy, all of which this song violates.”

The American DJ has always denied that the song shows any disrespect to women.
