Report: Naked Party At Yale University Prompts Sexual Assault Investigation

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A naked party at Yale may have crossed the line from salacious fun and into sexual assault and hazing, according to a report.

The Yale Daily News reports the Yale Police Department is looking into the party after several attendees were taken to Yale-New Haven hospital.

Yale Police Chief Ronnell A. Higgins notified the campus police “received information about a possible sexual assault involving undergraduates” attending an off-campus party on February 19.

The party in question was reportedly thrown by the Pundits, Yale’s private society prank group. Some 50 people attended the invitation-only function, according to the report.

While attendees arrived in costume, they were told to disrobe halfway through the party, witnesses told the Yale Daily News.

Yale officials are examining whether the party – in which underage students were also reportedly drinking – amounted to a form of hazing. Attendees were reportedly told that the party was part of the ritual to potentially join the Pundits group.

After the attendees disrobed, several of them were forced to kiss each other by members of the Pundits, according to the allegations cited in the report. One male attendee reportedly had a penis forcibly pushed against his face.

The events are still under investigation.

At least one of the attendees seemed to think the party was nothing more than usual, rowdy, college hijinks, according to the report.

Does this amount to college kids having fun, or is there something more serious going on here? Sound off in our comments section.

    Sounds like an excuse for guys in the closet to explore their sexuality while still pretending to maintain they are “straight”

    I’ve never understood the nonsense kids will put up with just to be accepted by a group of morons.

  • Whit

    Yale, schmale. Yesterday it came out that there was a live sex show at a Northwestern University “sexuality” class in Evanston, Illinois. Of course what college student even needs a sex ed class? So what do you expect?

    • Masked Pundito

      A pretty high percentage of Yalies arrive for Freshman year with zero sex education. Harvard’s percentage, of course, is higher.

  • Muawiyah

    This is why the United States is not well-served by having an ROTC program at any of the Ivy League colleges ~ particularly not Harvard, Columbia or Yale.

    All you get are officers who think Abu Ghraib style sexual sadism is “normal”.

    Word is that Obama likes that sort of stuff so he’s sent someone over to make a deal with Harvard today to reinstate ROTC at that school.

    Oh, the humanity!

    • peter porker

      really? “Word is that Obama likes that sort of stuff”? cite your sources, smart guy.

      • gayobama

        obaMAO has had gay, lesi, other sex parties at the WH. ObaMAO himself gays off <—– There it is dumbo. Plenty of reports on internet. GOOGLE it!!!

        He’s being sarcastic.

      • peter porker

        @gayObama: Provide ONE story confirming your claim that Obama “gays off” in the WH. Just ONE. Link to just ONE story.

    • peter porker

      so did W. What’s your point?

      • Massimo Deportado

        Point is: the left is devoid of any morals.

        Hanoi John Kerry? D-student.
        Al AGW Gore? D-student.

        Democrats? MMm… not so much….

    • sarah

      Both president Bushs went to Yale. Great role models, eh?

      BTW, Clinton went to Georgetown, but did get his law degree at Yale.

      • Westy

        So, in other words, Clinton DID go to Yale. Great role model, eh?

  • James

    Not surprised. I wonder how many professors were there and how many professors helped organize it. The elite left never surprise me when it comes to debauchary. Elite college professor approximately = elite leftist.

    • peter porker

      did you bother reading the article? there weren’t any faculty members there. you’re just looking for an excuse to blame the left for anything that you can.

      • Cebu de Macho

        Peter Porker, what’s the matter?
        We are here to comment about the gay hazing that happened in Yale.
        And here you are criticizing anyone you perceive not to be in the left.
        Man up, Harry Reid, err, Peter Porker. or better yet, Heckler!
        Don’t you have any personality of your own?
        Or are you just plain busybody?
        Or perhaps you were there shoving your peter porker on the face of that hapless youth, one of the normal human beings who complained vs. such an abomination?

      • Massimo Deportado

        Because the left has been running things for 60 years.
        And idiots like you run flack for the:

        Party of Slavery
        Party of Jim Crow
        Party of Baby Killing
        Party of The Killing Fields
        Party that is killing America one law and regulation at a time.
        Party turning innocent airline travelers into sock puppets

        The Party that WILL BE WIPED OUT IN 2012.

        I hope you have weapons training porker….. libs are going to need it.

      • Idiots_everywhere

        Yo Maroon! The flag is for states rights. In the form of an X to Honor St. Anthony who was crucified on an X. Nothing to do with Slavery. The Guv schools have really made you parrot untruths and slant that Libs always say enough until idiots like you believe them

      • Terp4Life

        Oh, how clever, hater. So you hit back at someone who ridiculously stereotypes with a more assinine generalization of your own. Neither of you bring anything useful to the conversation.

      • matt

        Confederacy = Slavery

        no amount of tinkering with history will change that.

      • peter porker

        @Idiots_everywhere: Tell that to the slaves who suffered under the Confederacy. Saying that flag has nothing to do with slavery is like saying the swastika has nothing to do with anti-semitism. no matter what it was intended to mean when it was created means nothing compared to what that symbol means today.

      • I hate stupid people

        I got news for you. There were slaves in the North too so should they do away with that flag? Just stupid thinking shown on here.

      • Massimo Deportado

        Imagine! Southern democrats with their own flag!

        i hATE sTUPID pEOPLE iS rIGHT: porker is a moron / internet troll.

        Hey Porker, is the you Rahm?

      • theJackal

        Dude get over it. Slavery has been for over a hundred of years, you weren’t a slave, your parents weren’t a slave. Get over it. I didn’t own slaves, my parents didn’t own slaves, my grandparents their grand parents…. There are more slaves today in Sub-Saharian Africa TODAY then there EVER were in the States. Where’s your outrage!!!!! You are a hipocite of the first order. GET EDUCATED YOU MORON…. You’ve been lied to by liberal filth your whole pathetic life. Now your useless and full of rage.

      • Westy


        Yeah!! Like all those southern democrats did!!

  • jes2

    Wow – and I thought all of the wack jobs went to Harvard.

  • Rick

    I thought students attending Yale would be above such shenanigans and low brow antics. Good role models are hard to find.

  • B

    The problem wih our youth is not what they are doing, it is the same thing that has been going on for years. The problem is that now they do it, video it, tweeet about it and tell the entire world about it instantly and it becomes an issue. Maybe the great minds of Yale can formulate proper protocal for students of the world on how to enjoy their youth without getting mom, dad and the Supreme Court involved. Party on.

  • I don't care

    It’s sad to see that so many people care about people getting naked, or even hazed. As long as no real damage is done, it’s all in fun and is funny. It’s funny to see how many people think things like this are important, when in reality nothing we do on this insignificant little planet really matters. The stars still burn, planets still orbit, and all will continue even after humanity is gone. So why not sit back, grab a beer and get nakd with some co-eds?

      That’s why they demonize Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sarah Palin. They have no balls, to say the least, so they given vent to their vagina envy syndrome and mercilessly attack these ladies–

    Yale could learn a lesson from BYU regarding unacceptable studen behavior.

      • Judith of Bethulia

        Peter Porker,
        Your slip is showing.

    • Karen

      What does drunk, underaged, hormonal, spoiled brats have to do with gay marraige.

    • Cebu de Macho

      Peter Porker,
      Are you the gay ballaerina who is now mayor?
      Good for you.
      With arms akimbo, you can continiue calling everybody moron and make a spectacle of yourself. Better still, send your enemies, real and imagined,
      dead fish.

  • anatolepushkin

    With lawmakers like Barney Frank for their role model, and with the sanctity of marriage dislodged by gay marriage, American Society has reverted ti Sodom and Gomorrah. The students learn from their betters, and there is nothing to learn except that Union Thugs and Black Panthers are heroes, ACORN and community organizing will lead you to the WH, Scott Brown the Clone of Botox Queen Nancy is the Face of the Z Generation, DemocRATS will rule forever and ever because Sarah Palin has chosen not to abort Trig, Her Roahl Highness Caroline is Camelot, etc., etc. So what else is new under the sun?

    • Karen

      Wow…. What a bunch of dribble.

    • anatolepushkin

      Sorry, I should have written Sherwood Brown instead of Scott Brlown. Sherwood is a congressman (D), Scott iis a senator (GOP).
      My profuse apologies to Senator Scott Brown who I respect because he is no clone to anybody. God bless Senator Scott Brown.

      • marvl

        You were right the first time. Scott Brown is, as his name implies, yet another liberal turd from Massachusetts. I wonder if the Brits would take the state back?

    Don’t forget, all of these stuck up, spoiled brats that attend the top three schools go there because they are bored of their silver plattered lives.

Besides most company’s rather hirer kids for 1/3 the salary and train them on site.

    • this isn't 1925 anymore

      Yale, Harvard, and Princeton have the best grant-based financial aid of any schools in the country. If your parents make less than $65,000, they don’t pay a dime to send you to Yale.

      • Steve

        And if your parents make $65,001?

      • Jim B

        Says the snobby fry cook from Checkers.

      • Elvis

        I think you might have been trying to say, “…in an intelligent and comprehensive manner.” And you probably did not really mean to throw in that completely unnecessary comma in the next sentence. Perhaps you are not the best person to criticize another’s grammar, hmmm?

      • Kyle

        Isn’t it manner? Not matter? I would re-think criticizing people unless you yourself can elaborate intelligently.

      • Shenvaldave

        Yeah, I’m with the Elvis guy. This is completely politically incorrect, and we wouldn’t want a bunch of Yalies to suffer from poor self-esteem. Perhaps a seminar could study the impact of hazing and improper party activities on the lives of these poor and impressionable national leaders of the future (biting of lip here…).

    • LibwithIQ

    • "collage" educated

      just because you obviously didn’t pay attention in “collage” (or 4th grade english for that matter), doesn’t mean it is a waste of money.
      If you did not go to “collage”, then you should probably stop contaminating the world with your worthless thoughts and opinions.

It take TWO parties to haze. Anyone who stayed was an idiot.

    • heatherfeather

      Hear! Hear! I never understood the whole sorority/fraternity initiations. Who in their right mind would do that nonsense? Must be lots of people with real low self-esteem who just need to be part of a groupy-group.

      • bg

        “Must be lots of people with real low self-esteem who just need to be part of a groupy-group.”

        Says the hypocrite making broad-based generalizations. Being a part of something doesn’t mean you have low self-esteem or that its bad. YOU would understand if YOU were a part of a sorority or fraternity, most of which do not participate in this type of behavior. That would be like me saying that all members of the marching band are pterodactyls. There might be one that is a pterodactyl, but I can’t know that because I have never been a part of the marching band.

      • rae in Houston

        I find this discussion extremely interesting, but ironic. Years ago, in the 1950s, I think, Yale banished fraternities from campus due to hazing incidents, and as a condition of a large donor to the university. Now we see that bad behavior is not limited to Greek social fraternities, but can spring up in organizations of all sorts.
