In general discussions, when the topic of teacher-related statutory rape comes up, the general assumption that i's a Jerry Sandusky-like male pervert who's trying to get it on with underage teen girls and boys.

Most of the time, the "victims" are boys, but sometimes it's lesbian sex. (BTW, I put the word in quotes because I wonder how traumatic these events are for the boys. I'm sure that in some cases they are, but I doubt if they are in even more than 50% of the cases. They (the boys) have probably had sex already with more "age appropriate" females (and I put quotes there because I think age appropriateness is a cultural ethical distinction and not a factual one).
