TOKYO: Strip to your boxers and cream up your nipples

frontpageA STUDENT stripped to his boxers and had whipped cream licked off his nipples at a shocking YUSU Club Night, it has emerged.

The reveller was told by officials at Toft Green’s Tokyo nightclub to perform the acts on stage as part of the venue’s “Grotti Gotti’s Wheel of Doom” on 23 January.

The student, an unnamed young man, was asked to take off his top, strip to his boxers and jump into the crowd.

But in a later task, it has emerged that a young woman was told to lick off whipped cream from the man’s nipple, belly-button and armpit in what has been blasted as “uncomfortable peer pressure”.

Anna Henley, a third-year English undergraduate, told Vision: “The issue wasn’t the fact they weren’t dangerously drunk but that there was uncomfortable peer pressure. Sure they volunteered but they didn’t know they were going to strip or they had to lick cream off one another – the guy seemed initially reluctant. It was uncomfortable to watch – free alcohol or no free alcohol, it’s not my idea of entertainment.”

The manager of Tokyo, Adele Lord, has apologised for any offence caused, and said that the company was open to suggestions for “better games”.

She said to Vision: “It was not a drinking game, it was a stage game, but crowd surfing and the licking of the cream was authorised by management.

“We at Tokyo apologise to those who are offended, and we may set up a competition for an idea for another event in the future, to avoid situations like these in the future.”

She added that the two students were not intoxicated and that no alcoholic prize was awarded for taking part.

But according to eye-witness Jordan Allwood, also a third-year English student, “The girl definitely won a bottle of wine for doing the licking.

“That said, both people volunteered to go up on stage, and were free to leave whenever they wanted, so while Tokyo shouldn’t really have done the game in the first place, nobody was forced to do anything they didn’t want to.”

George Offer, YUSU’s Welfare and Community Officer, told Vision: “Fortunately it seems that the student in this case wasn’t distressed by the situation. Ultimately we don’t want students to feel pressured to take their clothes off (or lick cream off someone’s nipples!)”

The event was held as part of the “I Love Tokyo Thursdays” – a YUSU-backed club night held at Tokyo every Thursday.

It is linked with the student unions’ Black Card, which guarantees a queue jump, a plus one queue jump and free entry for cardholders.

In 2011, the club came under fire from a group of women who were asked to give a lapdance to the company of TOWIE’s Joey Essex.

According to one of the girls involved, they had to perform the act in order to meet the 23-year-old reality TV star.

On the club night, Offer continued: “We have a great relationship with the YUSU club night staff, so we can make sure we don’t see any incidents like this in future.”

    Oh my God who cares. Stories like these easily match Daily Mail levels of ‘moral hysteria’ about complete non-issues. It’s a fucking student night at a club not a Sunday service at Church, of course ‘crazy’ things like this will happen.

    The delicacy which is suborn in the references in relation to certain genital areas in this article certainly please my palate.

    I wish someone would lick cream of my nipples. As a seasoned Tokyo veteran it saddens me to say no one has ever approached me asking to cream me up. In the future I hope for more of this so I may cream myself.

    While I appreciate Visions concerns for my welfare I would just like to clarify that my participation in the game was entirely voluntary and whilst slightly inebriated I do not regret the incident or hold any ill favour towards Tokyo.

    I stepped up for the crowd surf fully aware of the task at hand, as a previous volunteer had refused his forfeit and was allowed to leave the stage and the game to only mild booing.

    It was a surreal experience and I had a great night staying till close,
    Other than that thank you vision I now have a newspaper front cover to frame and hang on my wall ;)

    Attempt at most tedious link of the edition awards goes to…

    “It is linked with the student unions’ Black Card, which guarantees a queue jump, a plus one queue jump and free entry for cardholders.”

    After the outrage and disgust over last weeks events I can only imagine what next weeks headline will be, I expect something like: ‘campus wide fury as one alcohol obsessed student orders 2 shots of Apple sours for himself’

    The Derwent rugby captain disapproves of poor journalism.

    The Derwent rugby also likes peer pressure.

    Thank God I’m the Derwent rugby captain.

    This is surely a metaphor for how we all feel in the modern world. I myself frequently have dreams where I find a bunch of semi-strangers forcing me to strip into my boxers and rub dairy products into my nipples. I am estranged, rejected, forgotten – the Kafkaesque void of the universe has finally disrobed me.

    One day we were citizens of the world – respectable people in top hats and tweed suits. Now we’re young adults forced to expose ourselves in front of gawping strangers, as we are dancing to the music of Taylor Swift’s time. Soon we will be nude figures, luxuriating to our decay rubbed in tubs of dream-shattering cream.

    To me, the headline ‘Strip to your boxers and cream up your nipples’ just implies that a guy has nipples in the wrong place.

    On a side note: It’s stories like this that remind me that the only reason I pick up the newspaper on campus is because it makes excellent bedding for our pet rabbit to shit on.

    Good day.
