Yichud

Question:

With the severe prohibition of Mishkav Zachar, why didn’t Chazal institute a concept of Yichud between men, similar to the prohibition of Yichud between man and a woman?

Answer:

Since it is not a natural taavah, and it isn’t that common therefore they didn’t institute a gezeira against such ychud.
