LINCOLN, Neb. -- Two Lincoln teenagers have been ticketed for having sex in a high school hallway during the lunch hour while at least a dozen students watched, according to Lincoln police.
School officials said the incident happened over the lunch hour Wednesday at Lincoln Southeast. A female 17-year-old and a male 19-year-old apparently snuck past a gate to get into a restricted hallway near the Prasch Activity Center. Lincoln police said at least a dozen students watched through the gate.
A school administrator found the couple and called a school resource officer.
"I don't want the message to families (to be that) this is happening indiscriminately all over the halls," said Becky Wild, with Lincoln Public Schools.
Wild said she remembers only one other incident like this in the last 10 years. She said LPS takes it very seriously, and administrators are asking themselves some tough questions.
"Are there some areas in our schools that are not as visible to the adults that supervise? We need to figure out how we cover those. Do we need to be talking with students about appropriate behavior?" Wild said.
Word of the incident doesn't sit well with some students.
"It's inappropriate," said one student. "It is. First of all, they don't need to be doing that in front of other people."
Students told KETV NewsWatch 7 that they believe sex in the hallways is rare, but sexual activity in schools happens more than adults think.
"If a kid thinks they can do that and it's going to make them popular, that's the level people go to nowadays," said student Danielle Thompson.
"I honestly think it could happen, and it probably does happen at their schools. People just don't know about it," said student Tomika Hopkins-Sanders.
LPS said students involved in sexual activity at school could face disciplinary action, counseling, suspension or even expulsion.
School officials will look at changes that can be made to prevent this kind of incident, but admitted that it's tough to keep an eye on every student at every moment of the day.
Yes, and sadly alot of girls believe you cannot catch anything from oral sex.
I agree that it is a difference, but that is not the point the poster I was replying to was making. He/she was trying to make the point that the 70s were an innocent time where women only consented to sex if the man could convince her that his love would last a lifetime. Check the post that I replied to..
The 70s were very much a sexually carefree time. To think of it as a time of morality purity is just "good ol' days" syndrome.
Agreed, but the odds are a lot lower though. The main benefit is that you avoid the chance of pregnancy.
I remember taking worms to school in Biology class (10th grade I think) to study copulation.
Hell, today, you just watch other kids get it on.
Having graduated from HS in the middle of the 70s, and having taught at a HS in the late 90s/early 00s, I gotta say, the attitude is VASTLY different. While the 70s were not a terribly innocent time by 1950s standards, they were NOT very similar to today. Most of the girls I knew who were sexually active tended to do it with a boyfriend who they were dating. They tended to at least PLAN to marry the guy. (I can't attest to what the guys thought). The small handfull who slept around were really considered bad girls (sluts) by many.
That does not appear to be the case today.
And, for the record, I don't think there has ever been a time of moral purity. Just a time when kids were more afraid of the consequences, and more supervised.
There was sex going on when I was in school, but I don't recall kids doing it in the hallway, miming porno flicks on a dare while other kids watched. Nope, don't recall that at all.
The high school here in Wilkes-Barre, PA (Coughlin High School) made the national news recently (this past year I believe) when two students were caught having sex in the auditorium. I don't believe either one was expelled, but I think they both got suspensions.
A female performed oral on a male in my class when I was in first grade. That was 1985. The difference? No internet back then.
MEatloaf sang about times that were long gone. Rocky Horror demonstrated aptly that the times had changed.
In Cambridge MA they had a girl doing that in the back stairway with some of the boys. She was in the 5th grade. They tried to keep it quiet because she was part of a special program. to bring children to that school.
The boy was 19 and the girl was a minor. Unless they are cousins up in the hills somewhere, isn't that officially a rape?
Vouchers for what, lap dances?
"If this character is in his Senior year, he is at most 1 year behind."
No wonder he's the oldest student in high school.
He sounds like such a moron for having sex in the open, that I wouldn't be surprised to learn he was flunked at least once.
Wonder if he'll even pass a literacy test.
"While the 70s were not a terribly innocent time by 1950s standards, they were NOT very similar to today. Most of the girls I knew who were sexually active tended to do it with a boyfriend who they were dating."
What I'm hearing about today is "serial monogamy." People will hook up for a while, have sex -- even get married. Then they move on to someone else.
Shows how much the very concept of "relationships" has been devalued.
As long as they didn't have a cig afterwards.
I agree, but that was more due to the fact that women tended to get married right out of high school. A girl couldn't afford to be known as sleeping around in high school because she had to have a guy lined up to marry when it ended.
As women started going to college in higher and higher numbers, that no longer became a concern. Most women don't want to marry until their mid to late 20s so what happens in high school or college is no concern. Also, women who attend college tended to gravitate to more urban areas after graduation so their reputations in their small town high school are irrelevant and relatively unimportant since they're not going to live there anyway.
Of course, women in smaller towns that do not go off to college have to make sure that they at least seem sexually pure. This is probably why people have the impression that small towns are still places of virtue - the women really don't have any choice if they want to be able to get a husband right out of high school.
Well yeah, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. In the past, women were dependent on the man they married. If he ended up being a bad guy, the woman was screwed.
Now, women are able to make it on their own and they enter relationship for emotional reasons rather than just financial ones.
As has been covered many times in the thread, it is not statutory rape. The age on consent in Nebraska (like most states) is 17. Also, most states do not consider it statutory rape if the age difference is not more than 3 years.
17 is most likely the age of consent. even if it wasn't the difference between them isn;t large enough. but it depends on the state itself.
Heck, I'm surprised it was a heterosexual episode. Maybe that wouldn't have drawn the negative attention...
Hmmm, sounds similar to what I remember in HS. And I graduated in 87 too. We must have been a naughty class!
stuff like this happens in public schools in the south not infrequently
i saw it as a kid in 9th grade...bathroom coitus
my cousins who teach (taught) see it in Jackson Miss public schools and teachers I know at public schools see it here in nashville too
can't speak for other regions
you should hear about my cousin's daughter who is a nurse at a public hospital in Jackson Miss and caught a 14 year old girl 3 hours after having vaginally delivered her third child having intercourse with some 25 year old squire
when she reported it to the nurse's station, they just laughed and told her it happens all the time
some folks don't grasp the dignity thingie
I think young women are even more promiscuous now. There is even less social constraint.
The 70s were remarkable because folks had just started eschewing 50s morality....but it's been downhill since.
Isn't this statuatory rape? What is the age in Neb.?
(Denny Crane: "I Don't Want To Socialize With A Pinko Liberal Democrat Commie.Say What You Like About Republicans. We Stick To Our Convictions. Even When We Know We're Dead Wrong.")
Our generation did it behind the bleachers, at least.
Yes. More talk about sex. That'll solve the problem. Maybe start sex ed in nursery school. Take them at gun point if the parents resist.
Word of the incident doesn't sit well with some students. "It's inappropriate," said one student.
You have learned the lessons or moral relativism well, my son. But the truth, grasshopper, is that this behavior is evil.
Agreed..as time has progressed from the 70s, women have earned college degrees in greater and greater numbers. As this has occurred, women have become more and more independent and the financially mandated morality that existed prior to the 60s has gradually worn away.
This is not necessarily a bad thing. Morality should come from within and not just for financial reasons.
Sister of Buck Wild???
That is disgusting--the postpartum dalliance, that is. Our oldest daughter said her class was walking down the hallway to an assembly, and someone opened a closet door. Inside the closet were two teens going at it. Daughter is in middle school, but she attends a class at a high school as well. She usually does not tell us this sort of thing because she knows I will go balistic.
What is worse is the lesbo stuff that our daughters keep telling us. One of them mentioned seeing a girl making out with another girl prior to school yesterday morning. Daughter was very disgusted. I am astonished at the number of girls who call themselves "BI" these days. There are lots of them.
it's scary for those of us with teen girls
yea man...that post partum scene is not even what wild animals do
The "slide" began with
"Frankly my dear I don't give a damn"
and has been getting worse ever since.
I remember making out....but the thought of clothes coming off? PLEASE. This is the women's movement's fault. IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THE WOMEN'S RESPONSBILITY TO KEEP THINGS IN CHECK...IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THE WOMEN'S JOB TO SAY NO.
it's scary for those of us with teen girls
I'm sure it is.
We are an all male family around here
and I feel blessed in that respect.
There was one idiot on a thread that said
if he found a 17 yo boy screwing his
13 yo daughter he would recommend counseling
Counseling for whom?
When I was a teen, there was still some modicum of modesty and discretion.
This was when the pill for unmarrieds was uncommon, and abortion was illegal.
The wimmen's movement was still in it's infancy.
There were some things that a girl couldn't hide, should she be caught.
That contributed a lot to morality back then.
"some folks don't grasp the dignity thingie"
Dignity and self-respect were part of it, too. ;o)
"you should hear about my cousin's daughter who is a nurse at a public hospital in Jackson Miss and caught a 14 year old girl 3 hours after having vaginally delivered her third child having intercourse with some 25 year old squire"
Those might help a bit, and for a while.
But, don't you know they would find
a way around those obstacles. ;o)
"There was one idiot on a thread that said
if he found a 17 yo boy screwing his
13 yo daughter he would recommend counseling"
I remember him.
That was creepy.
"Counseling for whom?"
IIRC, the daughter.
IMHO, it was the father in need of counseling.
To paraphrase George Carlin.
"I wouldn't have sex in school man, you can get a ticket for that."
He can see Dr. Winchester, or Dr. Remington, or Dr. Ruger, or Drs. Smith and Wesson, or ...
Officer Katherine Finnell said a 17-year-old girl and 19-year-old boy were cited Wednesday after a school staff member contacted police about the incident Tuesday around 12:30 p.m.
In an e-mail to parents Friday, Principal Pat Hunter-Pirtle said the two were caught in a hallway where card tables and folding chairs are stored.
The lights were off, he said, and an administrator checking gates and doors almost tripped over the students because it was so dark.
He disputed the police report that a crowd of students had gathered to watch the two.
Once the administrator started talking to the two students, about 12 students who were behind the gate that is locked near the swimming pool, came to the gate to see what what was going on, Hunter-Pirtle wrote.
According to ageofconsent.com it is 16yrs.
I'm just helping Little Jeremiah out with this ping list for a few days.
(Also, I'm out of town on vacation, so if I'm not completely on top of things, I apologize.)
