Two years later: grappling with drug-facilitated sexual assault at UNC

The term “knocktail” is well-known around campus to refer to the experience of going to a cocktail and experiencing a drug-facilitated sexual assault. The Daily Tar Heel spoke to several UNC students who had experiences with knocktails at distinct fraternities.  The students said these experiences had definite impacts on their lives, including their schoolwork. Of the fraternities contacted by The Daily Tar Heel, The Sigma Nu Nationals Organization said it had no information regarding the incident, while another fraternity denied the accusations.

Anna, a UNC graduate, is a sugar baby, and she makes $144,000 annually from sugaring with three sugar daddies. “I focus on long term relationships so I don’t have to worry about where my next paycheck is coming from,” Anna said. “I get a level of trust and emotional connection. I find it more enjoyable.”

How stripping helped one UNC student pay her drug citation fees

After being caught with under an ounce of marijuana, one student said she turned to stripping to cover the hundreds of dollars in fees and court costs.  “My friends were stripping at a club, and you can make a lot of money doing that," she said. "So, I did it to make the money I needed.” In one night, she earned all the money to pay for her drug citation. It was her first time stripping, but it wouldn’t be her last.
