In total, about 400 students took part in such activities as part of Singapore Institute of Management-University of London's (SIM-UOL) orientation last month.
Other activities included eating a biscuit from opposite ends and hugging the opposite sex.
Chinese daily Lianhe Wanbao said some girls were so affected that they burst into tears later.
Some students The New Paper spoke to defended the activities, saying they promoted bonding.
