Eight SigEp brothers discovered a little something this week as their house underwent some renovations. Over Thanksgiving break, parts of the basement had been damaged due to flooding. While removing the carpet, a mysterious layer of sheet rock was removed to expose an old sub-basement room now dubbed the “sex room.” Each wall of the room has a different scheme—black, white, polka-dotted—leaving ceiling-high mirrors to complete the effect. The room also featured a raised platform in the center and a black light. In response, the frat brothers re-cemented the walls of the sex room, and are planning to use it as “extra space.” What does that mean? We don’t know—but we’d like to find out.

...and in related Yale news...
With the subject line "Shower Stalls are for Showering," the e-mail begins "OK, well THIS is the most awkward college-wide e-mail I've ever had to send."Whoa. What were they doing that flooded the showers for 90 minutes? And where is YouTube when you really need it?
"Several times since the start of the spring term some Hounies (nickname for the residents - WJ) have come across a couple having the time of their lives in a shower stall," the e-mail stated, referring to the nickname for college residents. "Last night, the shower flooded and the bathroom could not be used for over 90 minutes. To the as yet unidentified couple, this may be pleasurable and exciting for you, but it is a violation of community standards. Please stop."
