SPECIAL REPORT: Why Increasing Female Teachers Sleep With Young Boys

Experts have revealed the reasons behind why female teachers target young boys for sex – and believe it may be partly driven by loneliness, a lack of intimacy and the over-sexualisation of youth.

It comes as this week a 26-year-old married, successful science teacher was arrested in Florida after she allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old student.

Police say the woman, Stephanie Peterson, sent nude photos and also sold the teenage boy marijuana, and was charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious battery and one count of transmission of harmful materials to a minor.

Last month, a former Texas high school teacher, Alexandria Vera, who was impregnated by a 13-year-old but had an abortion, got a 10 year sentence and was thrown behind bars after pleading guilty to having sex on multiple occasions with the teenager.

And let’s not forget the most famous case of all — sweet faced Mary Kay Letourneau, who was embroiled in a Seattle rape scandal that shocked the world.


In 1996, the then 34-year-old Seattle primary school teacher was busted having sex with her 12-year-old student, Vili Fualaau.

The mother-of-four was sentenced to seven years behind bars following the rape, and put on the registered sex offender list for the rest of her life.

But following her release, the pair continued their relationship — and to date, have been married, divorced and share two children together.

According to figures obtained under Freedom of Information, more than 100 women were convicted of sexual offences in the United Kingdom in 2015, a trend that’s almost trebled in the past decade, The Conversation reports.



In a piece written by Andrea Darling from the criminology department at Durham University in England and published by The Conversation, these examples of sex offenders often don’t fit the “mould of what many consider a predatory paedophile”.

“Unlike other sex offenders, they do not specifically enter their professions to access children.

“Instead my research has found that many (though not all) of these women appear to abuse because of their own unmet intimacy needs resulting from relationship problems and feelings of loneliness, for example.

“These women are also different from other female sex offenders in that they are generally older, more affluent, have better social skills and less issues with substance abuse.

“Their behaviour is also to some extent influenced by the very situations they are working in.”

“Its roots are based on the ‘power’ that the female teacher has, a position of dominance and control.

“Perhaps the teacher is experiencing personal loneliness, dissatisfaction with her current relationship, feels the need for revenge, is experiencing lust or perhaps believes it is ‘true love’.

“In many cases, there is a history of sexual and or psychological abuse toward the perpetrator.

“Many psychiatric pathologies can lead to this type of behaviour including mood disorders, personality disorders and prior sexual trauma.”

Sexologist, relationship expert and author, Dr Nikki Goldstein told news.com.au that the reasoning behind more of these abuse scenarios being reported on, comes down to a number of factors.
