Fraternity Initiations and other Male Rituals

Fortunately, the physical abuse and harm many pledges undergo has abated, but some traditions, which were rampant in the 80s and 70s, continue. Many college fraternities and guilds have a long standing tradition of involving sister sororities in initiation ceremonies of the young men. Often times these rituals dictate that the young male pledges strip and conduct silly activities such as calisthenics, playing games or perform a ritualistic activity.  It is common these pledges are blindfolded and do not realize that they are being watched closely by as many as 70 young coeds as they dance around or play silly games completely naked.  As opposed to the typical physical harm and injury often caused in more traditional initiation rites, these escapades that involve harmless nudity in a much better alternative, and can be quite fun for the girls watching.

Here we post pictures and re-tell stories that we have found or have been sent to us by those that had first-hand experience of such fun activities.


Nollningen is a Swedish college initiation ritual in which the entire school particpates, including faculty. During the initiation the Nolls (freshmen) play games and have ceremonies in which many of them are forced to strip completely naked, much to the delight of the girls present. To the chagrin of the guys, although the girls participate they never strip naked but may sometimes undress down to panties and bras.

Preparing for a Dunk

Part of the games include being dunked in mud, food baths and being sprayed with beer. The girls wear a large plastic garbage sack to protect them but guys are encouraged to strip to their birthday suits, as you can see from one of these guys.

Embarrassed Boys

At some of these colleges they keep enthusiasm high by forcing the guys on a losing team to strip completely and remain nude throughout the games. As you can see here, some guys embarrassingly hide their agony of defeat from some very attractive coeds.

More Embarrassed Boys

Part of the same line of guys featured above. Not shown is the entire student body along with faculty surrounding these new students and being quite amused, including many female faculty members and coeds. No secrets are being kept from these women by these young men!

Put on Stage

Various colleges hold similar initiations in this part of Europe. Here guys are brought on stage and are required to strip for the entire school. As you can see, these girls are loving the viewing opportunity.

"Not Fair Dammit!"

The guy on the right obviously upset he has to strip completely naked in front of all the coeds whereas the girls get to leave on t-shirts, bras and panties.

More Freshmen Bare All

The cabaret continues with yet more young male pledges displaying their manhood for the entire student body to see. One has to wonder what is it like asking a girl out and she says "Yeah, I remember you, you're that naked guy!"

Kladstrek - The Clothesline

One of the best known events of Nollningen is the game "Kladstrek", which we understand to mean "clothesline". This game involves the teams competing to make the longest line laying end to end. The line is extended through adding any clothes one is wearing; thus, a lot of pressure is put on the freshman to take off everything (even wallets are added to the length). Although the female freshmen play as well, custom dictates that they never undress more than bras and panties.

Getting Ready for the Party

Based upon the numerous times Nollningen has been held, it is obvious that Kladstek is designed to get all male freshmen completely naked prior to other events and drinking games. After viewing hundreds of photos taken over the past several years, it appears every male in the freshman class ends up totally nude. Evidently, the freshman often stay naked through subsequent games and rituals, much to the amusement of the coeds in attendance.

U.S. University Greek System

Those that have pledged to fraternities in the U.S. often tell stories of fraternity initiation rituals that required stripping nude, often in front of a cheering sorority.  The picture to the right is of such a fraternity initiation whereby a sorority is invited (and enthusiastically accepts) to come and watch as each male pledge, one-by-one,  is required to strip and dance completely naked for the sorority as they laugh and applaud.

Sorority Judging the Pledges
Story by Michelle

I just stumbled on to this site and realized you'd like a story I posted elsewhere. This actually happened at a major university in the south in the mid 1980s. There was a fraternity house that routinely performed a ritual the last night of Hell Week. Our entire sorority was usually invited to participate each year, and all sisters, including our new pledges, would required to attend.

On the night of the ritual, we would be lead into the large den of the fraternity. There would be rows of chairs for us to sit in and watch the ceremony, with the front rows reserved for the girls. The new fraternity recruits, usually about 15 or so, would be lead into the large den of the frat house and instructed to stand in a row in front of us. The young guys would have towels wrapped around themselves.   When the towels were removed we laughed hysterically seeing that they all wore athletic jock strops with the fraternity insignia over their crotches. Wearing nothing but the jock straps, they would be told to recite sayings of allegiance to the fraternity and would be asked various questions as to why they wanted to join. Upon satisfactory answers, they were instructed to collectively turn and face the fraternity insignia above the fireplace and recite the pledge to the fraternity. When they turned we would giggle at the awkward sight of their exposed butts facing. After their pledge to the fraternity and with their backs still facing us, they were ordered to take off the jock straps.

The pledges were then ordered to turn around. They would usually be grasping their manhood hiding it from us. One of the frat brothers would be lecturing the recruits about loyalty to the fraternity and that they were always expected to be sincere in trust and honesty, and never "to hide anything" from their brothers or sisters. This was the segue for their next instruction, which was to stand at attention with both hands to their sides allowing everyone, including the sisters, to view their manhood. The eyes of my sisters were wide open with big smiles as the recruits stood completely naked with genitals  dangling just a few feet in front of us. Many of the girls, especially the freshmen, had seen few cocks in their life. For us it gave us an opportunity to check out how guys' dicks varied, especially in the way of size.

Then, the frat brother giving orders would say something like (if I remember correctly)  "This fraternity holds a strong legacy, it takes balls to stay in this fraternity, big balls". Then he would go one by one down the line presenting each pledge to the sorority girls. The pledges were told to hold their penises against their stomachs and the frat brother would say something like "Sisters, this is Scott Jensen. Ladies, please look at Scott's balls and tell us if you think they're big enough for this fraternity".

He was then instructed to hold his balls in the palm of his hand, presenting them to us for inspection. As we looked down at his balls we would say something like "yes, they are big enough", or simply give a thumbs up. Some of the girls were as embarrassed as the boys, but all were grinning widely or laughing.

The last step was the ceremonial spanking ritual. The pledges, still naked, would be allowed to chose the girl to spank them. They would proceed to a chair in front of the fireplace, bend over with their hands on the chair and butts facing us. The girls would give five hard swats with a paddle, and if they weren't hard enough, they'd be instructed to do it again. Most girls started with a light tap, but the brothers kept her there until the swats made the respective pledge's butt crimson red.

The recruits would stand in line facing us one last time and instructed to thank us for spanking them. Then they would be allowed to wrap the towel around themselves. This was a ritual that continued every year even after I had left, and would involve different sororities, all sworn to the Greek code of silence. If anyone knows if it is still occurring, please let me know as this would make for a great alumni event!

Sorority Girl Reflects on Her Experiences
Story by Anonymous Contributor

I used to be very skeptical of the fraternity initiation stories I read in which women were present as my fraternity buddies often told me nothing of this ilk ever happened with their specific fraternity. But, as I've learned, some did it routinely. My beliefs were changed by a young girl I met recently who attended a college up north. The story she told me was incredible, not because it is so different than the others, but she was very sincere and credible with no reason to lie or alter the story. I pressed her for details and we discussed the rituals at length, although I know she could discern more than a passing interest on my part.

The fraternity was reportedly Lambda Chi, and anyone that is/was part of Lambda Chi is welcomed to comment (it happened only about 5 years ago). Lambda Chi has over 300 chapters, and as with any Greek organization, each chapter varies considerably in initiation practices; hence, this is not necessarily reflective of their standard practices.  This particular chapter had an initiation process in which an entire sorority house was invited to watch, and the sorority was different each year. It was held in a large room and the lights were out, only lit by many candles. In the specific ceremony she was witnessing, the girls were far enough into the shadows such that they could not be readily seen. She indicated that her entire sorority was present at the initiation, which was 60 girls, and the girls had to keep absolutely quiet.  Further, she indicated the ritual was at 6:00 a.m. with the pledges having had very little sleep.

The male pledges (about 15) were told to strip completely naked then were led out in single file with their right hands on the shoulder of the pledge in front of them. Without knowing the girls were present, they were then told to turn facing away from the audience. The ceremony proceeded with each pledge being asked a barrage of questions that she said were extremely private and often humiliating to the pledge. According to her, many of the fraternity brothers and sorority sisters took great delight not only in the humiliation of these young men by these questions, but more importantly having them humiliated while standing completely naked in front of a room full of girls without their knowledge.

She didn't want to go into the nature of the questions, but only that they dealt with masturbation habits of the pledges, admission about the size of the erect penises and the like. She said one of the pledges indicated he had slept with one of the girls in the sorority, which she later told us was an absolute lie. During the interrogation that sorority girl was pretty angry, but didn't say anything at that time.

After each pledge answered the question, the girls watched the pledges bend over and have their naked butts spanked raw with a paddle. Then, the pledges were told to put their hands on top of their heads and shut their eyes and if they peeked they would be paddled again. They were then told to turn around.  At that point they were facing the girls and and the prolonged silence made it clear the fraternity brothers wanted to give all these sisters a long opportunity to closely view the dicks of each pledge without his knowledge.  I asked her what her thought were at that moment and she told me that it was wild.  It really made obvious the variance in male genitalia as she compared each guy with the next.  She said she found it surprising in that one of the guys that was short and had small features actually had the largest penis whereas one of the buff guys had a very tiny penis and scrotum.  She confirmed that it was the favorite moment for all her sisters.   Then, after they all had a good, long look the lights were all turned on and the pledges were told to open their eyes. She said the guys freaked out upon seeing the girls looking at them and laughing hysterically.

At that point, the girl that had been lied about screamed at the pledge "You liar! No way would I EVER sleep with you you jerk!" She said the guy was completely humiliated, standing there naked with his hands on his head, dick dangling having to answer to an entire sorority after he just made a total fool out of himself.

I asked her if the reverse ever happened, whereby the girls were naked while the guys watched the initiation, and she replied absolutely not. The sororities were pretty proprietary about their initiations with no guys allowed.

But she added that it seemed to be common for those fraternities that had a culture of stripping the pledges naked and humiliating them to have the sororities present to watch as it took it to a completely different level. She said she had heard about one fraternity that did the same kind of initiation; however the pledges had blindfolds on their heads and couldn't see. They were told to face the audience, which unbeknownst to them, included one of the sororities. They were then told to play with their cocks and get them erect and then jack off.   After the guys had cum, they were told to pull the bags off their heads, no doubt freaking and running off as the girls laughed.  However, she said she had never witnessed this.

Note from site administrator: If anyone knows of this or similar fraternity initiations and has the photos or videos, we would love to post them...and we'll pay for them too!
