1. These clubbers were pictured apparently having sex outside El Divino nightclub in Belfast last Thursday.
The image quickly went viral, coming shortly after a video of a young Irish woman performing oral sex on 24 men in exchange for a free cocktail in Magaluf spread across the internet.
While there is no way of confirming whether the couples were indeed having sex, some have also compared the incident to the “Slane girl” episode, which involved a teenager being caught performing oral sex on concertgoers at an Eminem gig last year.
2. Police said officers are currently not investigating the alleged incident.
A Police Service of Northern Ireland spokesman told the Irish Mirror: “We haven’t received any reports and aren’t investigating at this time.”
3. However, people have been very quick to express their own opinions on the matter, focusing on the girls involved.

“We have a robust management strategy in place, with all staff trained on the policies and procedures to take regarding inappropriate activity of any kind within, or in the grounds of, our venue.
“We have carried out our own investigations and spoken to the individuals concerned, whilst we do not condone this type of behaviour we are completely satisfied that nothing untoward occurred.”
