17. 18. Whatever. Hey Seth - how about you just don't have sex with your students? Guess that won't be a problem where you're going. Stories like this at Local Government Watch. http://localgovwatch.blogspot.com/search/labe...

Just as much, or more the girls fault. Most high school girls want to have sex with their teachers. Kinda hard to say no when they throw themselves on you. Hang in there Seth. You'll be out soon.

Is it inappropriate to have sex with a current student? Most certainly, Yes. Is it inappropriate for an 17 year old adult female (17 year olds are often tried as adults in court) to make herself available to a teacher? Absolutely yes, both adults have erred. Is it hard for a male to say no to a willing and 'available' female to whom a physical attraction exists? Yes. Is that an excuse for relations with a student? No. Everyone makes mistakes, and without diminishing the severity of the issue, Canata's mistake was not unilateral; without the girl's repeated consent, multiple relations could not have occurred. Obviously, the girl went to the police for a reason other than the reason that kept her going back to seth for more. Let us feel a bit of sorrow towards a teacher who was tempted by an equally aggressive, and equally willing adult participant because if these two people weren't related by school roles, there would be no foul according to law...

Ladies, just remember that with men, "the motor is always running".
We can't change this and sometimes it is near impossible to regulate the speed...
