I don't know about you, but I'm amazed at all the news stories coming out where these young, female teachers are having sex with their sixteen year old students. The most recent was in California, where this 28 year old woman just had her sixteen year old student's baby. Soon after, she was arrested. I looked this woman up on the internet and saw her photo. I was expecting to see a woman who looked like she needed to coerce a sixteen year old in order to have sex with anybody. Yet, once again, I see a good looking, well dressed woman with a trophy 'rack' that....if offered...would have a line of men ready to bed her on looks alone.
A couple of years ago, there was this blonde in Florida who had sex with her student. There was a photo of her, in a bikini, straddling a motorcycle. My first thought when I saw the photo was...."Lucky motorcycle."
When it comes to teachers, there is definitely a double standard in the mind of the public when they start having sex with their students. We all retract in horror when it's a male teacher having sex with a sixteen year old girl. Men....mostly....merely shrug their shoulders when the situation is reversed. We tend to think back and then wonder where these types of teachers were when WE were in school.
I had no such female teacher when I was in high school. We had Juanita Martin, an old maid who was the librarian when my mother was in high school. She was a great English teacher, but far beyond what one would consider sexy when I was in her class. I guess the closest I came to having the hots for a teacher was Coach Davis. I don't remember her first name, but she had a body that could kill a young man if he were to see her naked. When Coach Davis came to school, it was usually in a short skirt. Me and the other boys liked it when she turned to write something at the top of the chalkboard. On occasion, we could see flashes of her panties. She was in her late twenties and had a cute face...when she wasn't smiling. The main problem with Coach Davis was that she didn't have a healthy tooth in her head. When she smiled....it was a huge turnoff.
Even in college there were no good looking professors who were hot for student. They were all old, crusty and...in most cases...saw us for what we were. Boys trying to be men with an overload of testosterone that had no idea what life was all about. They weren't interested in us in that way...and the feeling was mutual.
Women who do this sort of thing must be mixed up in the head on a plane that is beyond my understanding. Boys are not very hygienic, and rarely have the experience to satisfy an older woman...unless that's what they are looking for. It has to be a mental short circuit for them to act out on these fantasies. It can never work out for the best. Usually, the boys are not mentally mature enough to handle the experience. After a while, it begins to bother them and they tell their parents about it. A man's first reaction is to think, "Why the hell did he do that???" It seems, from a worldly perspective, that it would be stupid to mess up a good thing like that. I mean, after all, it isn't every day that a woman walks up to us and says, "Take me, baby." Especially at my advanced age.
With male teachers who do this, it's more about an extension of their power over the student. Could it be the same with female teachers? I hardly think so. Women aren't into power like men are. Women like power, and they have a way of wielding it different than men, but power isn't what motivates the large majority of women. In my humble opinion. They want to be empowered, sure....but when it comes to sexual predators, I think there is a different cognitive going on than with the men who perpetrate this type of activity. Power definitely has something to do with it, but I don't think it is the primary motivator.
Could it be that these women come from a more sedate, conservative background and they feel like their lives have become the same? When they get the job and get married and start having children, perhaps they realize that life has not met the grade they thought it would be on. It's boring, routine and tedious in their minds...maybe...and they start seeing these sexual escapades as a way to break out of it. Few things are more exciting and titillating than entering in the world of socially taboo things....like having sex with minors. Secrecy is paramount to this type of relationship, and keeping secrets is exciting and dangerous. With men, it's about the power and the conquest. With the women, I think it is more about the excitement of doing something out of the normal realm they became so rutted in. But, alas, I'm not a psychologist....even though I pretend to be one on this blog.
I'm going to put more time into evaluating myself. Because I can't seem to get that one question out of my head every time I read one of these stories. "Where were these gals when I was in school??!!" I just can't....get...it...out.
