We hope the General Teaching Council for Scotland is up to speed on this, but we learn from our sister paper south of the border that as many as 1,500 sexual relationships between pupils and teachers may take place every year.
This is not our own calculation, we hasten to add, but the fruits of research by an academic - who herself fell for her teacher husband when she was a 14-year-old.
Pat Sikes, an education lecturer at Sheffield University, based her findings on interviews with colleagues and pupils over the past 25 years.
She believes an "erotic charge" in the classroom can aid teaching. It certainly doesn't seem to have done her any harm.
