    I was reading an article in a newspaper a few days ago concerning a 16 year old schoolboy who was seduced by a (very attractive) 25 year old female teacher, who gave him fabulous sex and bought him gifts. Parents reported matter to (firstly) Newspaper and obtained payout, then to school and police. Parents quoted as saying that son is traumatised, disgusted, cannot sleep, needs extensive counselling and will be scarred for life. Called for teacher to be prosecuted, jailed and possibly executed.
    Now I can just about recall being 16, and I would have thought all my birthdays had come at last had that happened to me.
    16 year old boys ooze testosterone, are constantly horny and would shag anything that was even vaguely female.
    I concede it was wrong, under present legislation, andthat morally it was wrong too. But traumatised? Degraded? Not sure about that.
  7. Very True.

    God dont we sound old.....pipe and slippers please.
