London, Oct.15 : Author JK Rowling has turned down the invitation of the steamy sex-themed ball, thinking she is too old to enjoy the event.
The 50-year-old novelist, who got the free invite to the Safer Sex Ball by students of her former university, said that she believed that she was “too old” to enjoy the fun which includes students frolicking in their underwear for charity, the Daily Star reports.
Expressing her gratitude for the invitation the ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ author took to Twitter and wrote, “Thanks for the kind invitation! I’ve got a feeling I’m three decades too old to enjoy this, but you have fun!”
It is said that the ball, which returned last year as a privately run event, had raised a whopping 10,000 dollars for local charity the Eddystone Trust. (ANI)
