It is always not done that a professor seduces a student; but it always does seem to happen. Professors must hold their morality to a higher standard than that of the whims of the body. It is never acceptable for a professor to socialize, or sexualize, the student/teacher relationship.

What happened to the Hershey's Chocolate Bar? What happened to the American Tootsie Roll? Tastes didn't change. The economy changed our tastes. The bottom line turned a candy delight into a chalky turd. Where once we salivated for a chocolate treat; now we only spit out its remains.
