Remember when people used to wonder how grown men could so cavalierly throw away their careers, their marriages, their very lives, in exchange for the sexual attention of teenage girls?
At one time, this seemed like an exclusively male problem, did it not?
Well, not anymore. In recent years we have witnessed a relentless march of one woman after another, entrusted with the virtue of our young male population, and betraying that trust at every turn.
The latest two female perpetrators are Rachel Respess (24) and Shelley Dufresne (32) both teachers at Destrehan High School in a suburb of New Orleans, Louisiana.
The two women are alleged to have enjoyed a threesome with a Destrehan High football player after a game on September 12. Apparently, the brazen hussies also videotaped the encounter, so they could remind themselves again and again how aging lionesses devour fresh young meat.

Because the victim in this case was too young to give his consent, for all intents and purposes he was gang-raped by these much older, female aggressors.
Of course, moments later he bragged about this assault to all of his friends, which soon led to the arrests of the teachers.
Questions Leap to Mind
The first major question that always appears when events like this happen is "Where were these teachers when I was in high school?"
The answer, if we're willing to accept it, is, "They were there all along. They were just having sex with guys on the football team. You were in the chess club."
Except I wasn't in the chess club, and there was no football team at my high school.
Moving right along, the next question is: "How did the teachers not see this coming?"
Here's the thing. Most adults cannot keep a secret. They are not discreet, and are in fact incapable of discretion. Knowing something creates a pressure in their mind, and if they don't share that something, the pressure will build until their heads explode.
They alleviate the pressure by telling someone else what they know. This process often takes an hour or even longer to play out. And as the saying goes, "Once you tell one person, you have told everybody."
This is, in fact, how most crimes are solved.
Teenagers are much worse at keeping secrets than adults. Teenage boys are worse than teenage girls. And if the secret is something that might enhance the status of that boy amongst his peers? Look out.
The charges against these women carry a maximum penalty of 17 years (!) in prison. Somehow, it never occurred to them that their crime would ever see the light of day. See, because their victim was going to play along and keep it a secret.
They staked their careers, their freedom, their futures, their pensions, their health insurance, their standing in the community, Dufresne's marriage, her relationship with her children, all on the slim hope that a 16-year-old boy was going to keep his mouth shut.
How could they possibly do this?
The Painful Truth
The painful truth is the teachers lost their minds. The urge to fornicate is much older, and much stronger, than the urge to... what? I forgot. Think, I guess. Or whatever.
Combine that with the fact that a lot of high school football players tend to look like this:
Meanwhile, a lot of 30-something hubbies have already started looking like this:
The Louisiana threesome situation is simply a case of two women who lost control. Things at home were unsatisfying, they spent their days around hyper-masculine teens, and they went crazy with lust.
In fact, now that Shelley Dufresne is out on bail, she is being treated for unspecified "mental health problems." Trips to her mental health counselor are one of the few reasons she is currently allowed to leave her home.
This being Louisiana, she's also allowed to go to church. I guess so she can be saved and repent and all that good stuff.
She can find God, and she can go nuts, but it's probably not going to help much. She won't do 17 years, but if earlier offenders like her are any indication, I'll bet she does 4 or 5, and will have to register as a sex offender for a decade after that. Teaching again is out of the question.
It's a story as old as civilization. Like a modern Ulysses, she (and Respess) were lured onto the rocks and destroyed by the sweet song of the Siren, in this case a muscled-up jock.
I guess we're learning it isn't a man-only problem.
