A local female teacher got popped several weeks ago for having sex with one of her male students, another this weekend. And like usual, they are pretty damned attractive…. I can’t believe I can say ‘like usual’ and not be kidding. Now don’t get me wrong, I imagine there are ugly teachers having sex with students, but what teenage kid is gonna go around bragging that he’s banging some old battleaxe.

I know we’ve heard this story before however, what was shocking is that it happens so frequently there are website devoted to the phenomenon in fact, Tampa Bay, FL was able to make a Google Maps mashup of the most recent incidents.

Everyone has a “How I Lost My Virginity” story. I’m no different. I don’t suppose everyone’s story involves a teacher or in my case a 36 year old nurse. Somehow I get the impression that kids are having sex even sooner than they were when I was growing up. Sometimes I wish I had one of those awkward self-discovery stories where two teens fumble around nervously exploring each others sexuality instead of the rather explicit tutorials I was exposed to as an insatiable 14 year old boy. Although, I’m sure the first few girlfriends after that were thankful for those tutorials.

I’m really having a moral dilemma regarding adults having sex with sexually active teens. I haven’t really entertained sex with a teenager of any age since about the time I could sit at a bar legally. But even though this lady was my first, I was certainly not unwilling and I’m sure it’s safe to assume neither were these boys. As far as the girls are concerned I’ll be the devil’s advocate and wonder what is more psychologically detrimental, being coerced by a hormonally unbalanced teenage boy who is not likely to last in a relationship any longer than he did in bed or an older person who has more patience and facility to romance a confused and perhaps self conscious teenage girl. I’m wondering if Western society’s feelings regarding these relations are based on any real potential for harm or just some long forgotten knee-jerk reaction.

What do you think?

Looking for the sake of looking

I’ve started getting emails from concerned folks that NEEEEED to know how I’m doing. My mother even sent me a video email the other day to explain what a poor son I’ve been and how she is becoming an internerd to spite me. A video email?!?!? I know I’m talking about my mother here but no one is attractive on a USB webcam. That is unless you are nekkid, thankfully my mother hasn’t learned this yet.

When I say you have to be nekkid to be even remotely attractive on a webcam. Mind you, I meant YOU, any web nekkidness on my part might be considered an act of terrorism, akin to trying to smuggle more than 3 ounces of toothpaste on a plane.

Now did I miss something or has instant messaging lost its charm? I miss the sheer innocence of convincing some young girl that it’s her great idea to remove her shirt and fondle her funbags. I mean everybody is twittering what they are doing like masturbating with Tourette’s, I don’t think anyone’s listening to you. I may be just as guilty of that one… the masturbating that is… to hot midget erotic models… maybe.

Recently I spent a little time exploring all these social networking sites that are bookmarked on my computer. I’ve watched the evolution of social networking and every site claims more people and more features, but I have to admit the most fun recently has been OKCupid. Originally called “The Spark” the online IQ test was their claim to fame. The girl and I mostly log on now hunting unicorns. I know how mythical that creature can be so I’ve settled just to find a few like-minded folks to have the occasional beer and spirited conversation…. A much less elusive endeavor.

So um, yeah… I’m going to need your screenname, please slip into something more comfortable…
