Dude in another period did it over my hot airhead biology teacher.  She just said to stop it and moved on.

How the hell do you just tell someone to stop and then move on? I mean, this happened in a classroom, in front of other people, and you just realize "Wow. He's jerking off to me. I'll just tell him to put it away and act like it never happened."

She was very ditzy, but VERY hot.  Not there anymore though.  Also, it was not as easy to notice as you think considering the setup of the desks in that particular room.  You have been to my HS for MUN so it was on the 3rd floor Main.  You might have had Security Council in that room!  I know Gen. Assembly is in our auditorium.

Come on, in school?  I went to public school in the 1970 and was on a public school board in the 1990's.  It never happened.

Dreadful topic, but I will still respond:

Masturbation in a school restroom is not an option if the stalls lack doors.

If you're doing it in the open somewhere, of course.

If you're doing it in private - like in a bathroom stall - I don't think so.

I say any time b/c if you're doing it in the bathroom--it has to be during class, otherwise you'd get caught and then your skipping class to do it.

Good thing this topic was bumped, because I was almost not wanting to vomit when I went into the school bathroom.

Then punish the student for skipping class, not masturbating.

Besides, you forget about lunch and free periods and the like.

If a person were doing it at assembly... I think that would be a criminal offence anyway.

Assuming they are doing it where I think they would - nobody is getting hurt.

This fear of sex and all things sexual (parents have a lot to answer for "I don't want to have to explain it to them") is really stupid.

Sex is why we're all here for God's sake.

It's not a fear of sex. Some people just have to accept that there are people in the world who think that sexual activities have to be expressed in loving, committed ways. That doesn't mean that they don't like sex; it means that they see certain situations in which they are appropriate and inappropriate. For example, two people having sex when they love each other and are committed to each other vs. someone who makes it a goal to hook up with as many guys/girls as possible in the course of a weekend. Why does someone suddenly "fear" sex for saying that the latter is wrong?

What about a loving, committed gay couple?

okay, phknrocket1k, I thought more about your question.  Given that you're not the philosophical sort, and you like answers in the absolute, and not in shades of grey, I guess you're not asking anything other than what you're asking:  i.e., what if you're the principal, and it doesn't matter how it happened, where it happened, whether the teacher is a known asshole, whatever, but only that it lands in your lap.  you're the principal at a JH school and a student comes into your office and says he's there for jacking off in school.  what do you do?

I still say it's hard to spell out in black and white.  But after some contemplation, I say I'd first ask the boy about it.  delicately.  Then I'd call the parents in for a conference.  In fact, for just about any infraction that's exactly what I think I'd do.  Hopefully, during our initial consultation, the boy'd be honest about it.  And I have enough faith in humanity to actually believe--call me a moron if you must--that most boys really would be honest about it.  "oh, man, I sit right behind nancy williams.  man, you know how hot she is."  And probably I'm a principal at a JH with about 800 or so students so no doubt I've noticed little nancy williams.  though I'd never admit it in our present climate of paranoia and recrimination.  I'd probably listen to the boy, but not try to paraphrase or clarify or claim sympathy or anything.  again, the current climate of paranoia and recrimination.  I'd definitely call the parents and guage the severity of my reaction on them.  If they were total assholes.  Denial.  Threats.  Then, I'd be all like, "fine, go screw.  the boy's outta here."  Like an spat-upon umpire at an AL championship series.  After all, I'm only human, and like umpires, principals can only take so much abuse.  But again, and pardon my innocence, I really think most parents would be fairly supportive of the system, and want to make it right.  apologetic.  humiliated.  I'd leave it in their hands.  the embarrassment and humiliation would have presumably been enough in terms of punitive measure.  and no one in the world will ever love you as much as your parents, frankly.  so you can bet they're going to give your situation a serious thought, and do what they think is best.  the student still deserves an education.  But, seriously, so does every other student, so if we're talking about a recidivist student who just refuses to cease the jacking off to the point of distraction, then that student will be out of the school.  period.  no matter what the parent says.

Of course it should be.  But for the child's sake, don't let the information leak out to his peers. Talk about a scarring experience.



Funny anecodte:  I knew this weird-ass guy my freshman year of college.  Stereotypical "nerd" who loved anime and video games, not very social. Got caught masturbating in the library once, and once  in his own dorm's computer lab. WTF

You know, this is one of the things I've always wondered: why is masturbation so stigmatized?  Everyone does it, but it's considered a socially unacceptable thing for it to be brought to light that some particular person happens to do it, even though probably every single other person in the room also does.
