Students and teachers dating Denver sex dating

This helps explain why young girls are attracted to older men: adults simultaneously provide the promise of security and emotional safety, and the opportunity for a teenager to feel like an adult, sexually.

Oftentimes, behind the safety of a screen, teachers forget their roles as mentors and figures of authority.

Instead, they fall into the trap of talking to their students intimately as if they were romantic interests, and thus potential sex objects.

It does surprise me, however, that these teachers return the sentiments. Teenage girls are hot, and we are masters of flirting and teasing.

So the logic goes, it would be unreasonable to expect a male teacher not to notice whether or not his students are attractive.

With just a screen and some charming language, in the privacy of their own homes, teachers might forget they are talking to confused, acne-plagued, shy teenagers from their classrooms.

Perhaps they enjoy the distraction or attention or compliments they are receiving, becoming too easily seduced.

Namely, they threaten the emotional and mental stability of teenagers who already have a plethora of stressors in their lives.

The last thing teenagers need to worry about, on top of social pressure, financial pressure, schoolwork, standardized tests, peer friendships and romance, and everything else that comes along with the tumultuous stage of adolescence, is being a source of romantic pleasure for their teachers.

Teachers who sexually assault students generally get fired, sued, arrested, or some combination of the three.

But more and more frequently I read or hear about teachers and students entering into inappropriate relationships that don't necessarily involve physical contact. When there is no actual assault, or even overt physical contact, but just flagrant intent?

Teachers seem to be finding themselves unable to separate their professions from their personal lives, a risk they should not be able to afford.
