The frat brothers at Phi Kappa Tau at Georgia Tech have found themselves in a bit of hot water after an email teaching them questionable tactics on how to get with girls has leaked.
Allegedly sent from the group's social chair, Matthew Peterson, the letter says brothers will be ejected from parties if they're not talking to women, instructs multiple times to make sure the opposite sex is pumped full of liquid courage, and includes commands like, "ALWAYS USE YOUR HANDS OR ARMS TO GUIDE THEIR DANCING in order to maximize your pleasure."
For those brothers who don't know how to dance, Peterson offers a guide instructing how not to get too creepy too fast while women "grind against your dick":
Here is how to dance: Grab them on the hips with your 2 hands and then let them grind against your dick. After that slowly alternate between just putting your hand across their stomach, but make sure don't to go to high (keep it under the boob) or too low(dont try to finger her… yet).
There are also blunt instructions on how to "escalate," or get ladies primed for hooking up. The letter goes on, "ALWAYS START WITH THE MAKING OUT!!!! NO RAPING."
According to Peterson's email, dancing is the gateway to getting straight into a girl's pants: "IF THEY ARE HAMMERED AT ANY POINT BEFORE MIDNIGHT, JUST SKIP THE CHIT CHAT AND GO DANCE."
Included are also a charming list of instructions on the "7 E's of hooking up," starting from meeting and ending at booting them out of the bedroom:
1. Encounter (spot a girl or group of girls) 2. Engage (go up and talk to them) 3. Escalate (ask them to dance, or ask them to go up to your room or find a couch, depending on what kind of party) 4. Erection (GET HARD) 5. Excavate (should be self-explanatory) 6. Ejaculate (should also be self explanatory) 7. Expunge (send them out of your room and on their way out when you are finished.
The email was signed "In luring rapebait."
The university has since released a statement on the unsettling email.
"Georgia Tech is aware of this incident, and its Office of Student Integrity is currently engaged in an investigation to determine the facts," the university said. "Phi Kappa Tau's national office, as well as Tech's student-led Interfraternity Council, are also reviewing the matter to determine whether to take any independent action. The Institute does not condone this type of behavior and continues to provide resources and education designed to create a supportive campus environment for all students, even those who exercise extremely poor judgment."
One former member warned on the organization's alumni list that the email was being passed around, Gawker reported.
"The alumni groups (BOG, House Corporation), Georgia Tech, and the National fraternity are aware of this incident and have taken actions," wrote faculty member and ΦKT alumnus Rob Butera. "We have asked everyone (actives, volunteers) to refrain from any comments to the press/media and allow representatives of Georgia Tech as well as Phi Kappa Tau to speak officially on the topic and the actions that were taken."
Though the Georgia frat's email is definitely cringe-inducing, it still doesn't hold a candle to the expletive-laden rant of University of Maryland sorority girl, Rebecca Martinson, which included gems such as, "I would rather have 40 girls that are fun, talk to boys, and not fucking awkward than 80 that are fucking faggots."
The letter in its awful entirety:
"Alright chods, some of you could use some help on how to mack and succeed at parties. Mostly pledges do, but some bros could use a review. For anytime throughout the party… If you are standing by yourself at any point, YOU ARE OUTTA HERE!!! If you are talking to a brother of your pledge brothers when there are girls just standing around, YOU ARE OUTTA HERE!!!
Ok, if it is before midnight… A group of girls is standing around, grab a bro or pledge bro and go talk to them. First, introduce yourself and get their name, ask if they are having a good time, and then ask if they want anything to drink. If they say yes, walk them to the bar and tell them what we have to drink. If they say no and they look like they are in a sorority, ask them if they are in a sorority (DUH). If not, choose one of the following: where are you living, where are you from, have you been here before, how are classes going, or where all have you been tonight. Then proceed to have a conversation. IF THEY ARE HAMMERED AT ANY POINT BEFORE MIDNIGHT, JUST SKIP THE CHIT CHAT AND GO DANCE.
Midnight or after, if you have been talking for awhile and they've had a couple drinks, ask if they want to dance. If you see an untalked to group or a solo girl, go up to her and ask if she wants anything to drink. If she says yes, get her a drink and then ask if she wants to dance. If she says no, ask her to dance. DANCING IS FUN!!!!! Always try to dance. If she does not want to dance and is with friends, say "aw thats no fun" (or something like that) and then ask one of her friends.
Here is how to dance: Grab them on the hips with your 2 hands and then let them grind against your dick. After that slowly alternate between just putting your hand across their stomach, but make sure don't to go to high (keep it under the boob) or too low(dont try to finger her… yet). After a song, start putting your cheek on the side of her cheek. ALWAYS USE YOUR HANDS OR ARMS TO GUIDE THEIR DANCING in order to maximize your pleasure. If she starts putting her hair over her ear, THAT MEANS SHE WANTS A KISS. Therefore, try to give her a kiss on the cheek. They usually like that and nothing really should ebcome of it. In the case, go for the neck kiss. If for some reason they aren't down for a cheek kiss, just dance through it or say you are going to get another drink and see if they want one. And then repeat from the beginning.
If the party is going good (a.k.a. there are a lot of open girls) try to escalate cause it's awesome. Here is how to escalate: Try to twist her hips around to face you and dance front to front. FROM THERE THE OPTIONS ARE UNLIMITED! You can make-out with her (tongue on tongue), you can stick your hand up her shirt (not right away though), you can go for a butt grab (outside or inside the shirts), or use your imagination. ALWAYS START WITH THE MAKING OUT!!!! NO RAPING.
A short guide consist of the 7 E's of HOOKING UP! 1. Encounter (spot a girl or group of girls) 2. Engage (go up and talk to them) 3. Escalate (ask them to dance, or ask them to go up to your room or find a couch, depending on what kind of party) 4. Erection (GET HARD) 5. Excavate (should be self-explanatory) 6. Ejaculate (should also be self explanatory) 7. Expunge (send them out of your room and on their way out when you are finished. IF ANYTHING EVER FAILS, GO GET MORE ALCOHOL. I want to see everyone succeed at the next couple parties.
