California high school athletes busted for running a ‘sex fantasy league’

It’s hard to keep track of what the kids are doing these days, but we can tell you that not all of it is good. Fantasy sports have swept the nation over the past several years as a favorite hobby of people of all age groups. However, some of the students at Piedmont High School in California have taken the concept of “fantasy” games a bit too far.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, a number of Piedmont athletes have been caught running a sex fantasy league in which unknowing female students are drafted to their teams. A letter from school principal Rich Kitchens that was sent to parents on Friday said the students tallied points for “documented engagement in sexual activities” with the female students who are on their “rosters.” A group of students came forward after a date-rape awareness assembly in early October to inform authorities about the league.

“We’ll react to things as they come to us,” Piedmont Unified School District assistant superintendent Randall Booker said. “We’re not making excuses, we’re not minimizing it, we’re not sanitizing it. We’re an educational community. Our point is to take issues like this and treat them as educational opportunities, and if there are criminal issues, we report them to the police.”

Piedmont police said that no laws were broken and no sexual assault charges have been filed, so Booker has urged parents to discuss the issue with their children rather than just having them listen to school officials. Kids will be kids, but parents should be pretty disturbed by by this one. This is much worse than what happened at the high school in Maryland.

    this is in no way worse than kids hiring prostitutes.   regardless of the draft, the girls appear to all have been willing participants and no laws were broken.  as far as i know, prostitution is still illegal in North Carolina.

    What’s the big deal? This is nothing different than a group of guys sitting around talking about which girls they would have sex with. They just found an organized way of doing it. It seems the girls are willingly engaging in sexual acts, as there haven’t been any reports of sexual assault.
