(Mv.I.52.1) [114] Now at that time Ven. Upananda the Sakyan had two novices, Kaṇṭaka and Mahaka. They committed sodomy with each other. The monks criticized and complained and spread it about, “How can novices engage in that sort of misbehavior?”

They reported the matter to the Blessed One.

“One (monk) should not get two novices to attend to him. Whoever should get them to attend to him: an offense of wrong doing.”
