Buckingham University may have to do some damage control after its vice-chancellor, Terence Kealey, encouraged male lecturers to use the good looks of female students to spice up their own intimate lives at home, according to this story.
His comments were made as an attempt to make light of, and call attention to, a serious matter. Kealey feels that his comments have produced some positive results, sparking dialogue regarding the taboo subject of teacher-student relations.
The comments were made during an interview with Times Higher Education magazine.
“Kealey may count himself lucky that he doesn’t work in an American academic institution,” wrote one reporter in a story about the issue.
