Dov Ber Eliezer Krieger asked:

B"H How is it that Rabbi Yehuda states two men may sleep in the same bed? Is that not issur?

The Kollel replies:

The Gemara in Kidushin (82) writes that B'nei Yisrael are not Chashud on Mishkav Zachar, and therefore there the Isur of Yichud does not apply to two males who are together. However, the Shulchan Aruch (EH 24) writes that in today's perverse society it is commendable to apply the stringency of Yichud to males as well.
