Royal Wedding Sparks Demand For Morning After Pill

It wasn't just Will and Kate who were celebrating their wedding after hours. The royal wedding seems to have sparked some romance -- of the spontaneous kind.

The National Health Service Northamptonshire told The Mirror that demands for the emergency contraception, better known as "the morning after pill" tripled over the royal wedding weekend.

A safe sex advocate for Northamptonshire told the paper, "Whatever else they say, these figures suggest some people may not be thinking enough about their contraceptive needs."

But was it sheer lust that drove Brits into each others arms so carelessly, or was it the country's hard-partying ways? Pubs in England were allowed to stay open two hours later, until 1am, so patrons could properly celebrate, the Metro reported.
