meself, you must have missed out on having the right kind of teachers. We had a French teacher, likely around twenty-one years old, whose presence in the classroom is partly responsible for the really poor French skills of half the class, because none of the girls could concentrate on the lesson. He was a real stunner, dark gold hair, strong features, nicely tanned, neatly built, and his hobby was boxing, so he was very muscular. He likely informed the midnight dreams of a couple hundred teenage girls.
But that's as far as any of us would have cared to take it.
