Cornell fraternity on probation for secret 'pig roast' sex contest

Fraternity under fire for sex contest that encouraged members to sleep with heaviest women

Members of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at Cornell University are being investigated for having a sex contest which they called a "pig roast", referring to the fact that participants were ranked by the weight of the women they slept with.

A Cornell University fraternity conducted a game in which new members competed to have sex with the most women ― and additional points were granted in the event of a tie to the contestant who had intercourse with a woman weighing the most, a school investigation revealed recently.

Yet in an 'interesting' kick to the sex contest, at the end of the competition, in the event there was a tie, the victor would be decided by the pledge who had sex with the heaviest woman.

Ryan Lombardi, vice president for campus and student life, condemned the fraternity's behavior and stressed, "Behavior that degrades and dehumanizes women contributes to a climate and culture of tolerance for sexual violence", according to The Cornell Sun.

"The IFC was appalled and disgusted by the activity described in the reports", Interfraternity Council President Paul Russell said, as cited by The Cornell Sun.

The university will also require that the members participate in bystander and sexual violence education programs, and that the chapter hires a live-in advisor for the rest of its probation.

"The decision about the specific sanctions placed on ZBT was made jointly by administrators and IFC leadership in a review board hearing earlier this year after a hearing and a review of the allegations".

Along with probation, the chapter is required to conduct its own review, as well as undergo one by its national organization.

In November, Northwestern University suspended a fraternity chapter and ordered another to cease operations after reports emerged of sexual assaults and druggings on campus.

The fraternity said in a statement that the allegations were contrary to its values and mission.

The Pig Roast sex competition led to the university's Fraternity and Sorority Review Board sanctioning the fraternity. "As a result, we are looking inward to ensure this type of behavior never occurs by anyone connected with ZBT, or the campus community as a whole, on our watch", the statement reads.

It said it will review of the incident, and expel members if necessary.

The fraternity said on its Facebook page that it "would like to first and foremost express our mutual disgust along with those who feel hurt or victimized".

"We intend to offer this programming to the entire community as we believe this is a message and area of concern that impacts the entire Cornell Community", the statement said.
