Students at Miami University have sparked outrage after posting a flier entitled 'Ten Ways To Get Away With Rape' in the toilets of a freshman dorm.

The sick flier covers everything from 'slipping roofies', sneaking in open windows 'to teach her a lesson' and 'sex with an unconscious body'.

Tip 4 says: "if a women's window is unlocked sneak in and rape her to teach her not to do it again", while tip 10 says: "RAPE RAPE RAPE, it's college boys live it up!!!"

The flier was posted in a Miami University dorm

University officials immediately called a meeting for all male members of the University's McBride hall where the flier was found.

Police have launched an investigation promising disciplinary action if the culprit is found.

But Kate Van Fossen, vice president of Miami University's Women Against Violence and Sexual Assault (WAVE), said the university has not gone far enough in dealing with the incident.

She told the Cincinnati Enquirer: “It could have been a joke, but the fact of the matter is that those thoughts are crossing someone’s mind. There are girls living in a hall where someone came up with that.

“It’s just disturbing.”

There have been 27 sexual assaults recorded at the university since 2009.

Barbara Jones, Miami University's vice president for student affairs dismissed the severity of the incident. She said "All of our evidence shows it was confined strictly to McBride Hall."
