The Predator in the Most Unexpected Place?

Sex education for children and teenagers isn't as simple as it was when I was in high school. Back then HIV wasn't in the media. By the time I entered Year 11, at the age of sixteen and a bit, HIV was in its infancy in Australia, and erroneously labeled a homosexual disease.

This latest story from Melbourne, concerning a female teacher wanting a fifteen year old student as a sex slave caught my eye today because it reminded me of the short period of time I took to get to know a younger male, who expressed an interest in submission. Initially, I thought his preference a joke, something to 'freak me out' or something, but when I explored his supposed preference further – through talking – I found that his earlier experiences, whilst in high school, probably colored (or tainted) his attitude toward himself and his sexual preference.
