Yes, that SNL skit pretty much sums it up from the average male perspective. Sexual predation by female teachers on male students - teacher cougar attacks for lack of a better term - have been going on for, my guess is centuries. Indeed, one of the first novels in the English language, Tom Jones written by Henry Fielding and published in 1749, has the young protagonist subject to a cougar attack. What we are seeing today is not some explosion in female teacher male student sexual predation, but rather the publicizing of it because of social media.
If the male is of legal age to engage in sex . . . eh. Paedophilia is one thing, but sex between two people of legal age is another. I understand that it has to be prosecuted. The potential for problems developing out of such a relationship are there. That said, it happened to two males in my family line and neither suffered anything more averse than incredibly fond memories and, for one at least, the permanent setting of a very high bar, quantitatively and qualitatively, for what constituted great sex. There are worse fates.
