A teacher was fired after he took students to get their penis’ pierced.
Pieter Oberholzer, 57, of Johannesburg, South Africa, was fired for taking his students to a shop to get his and his students’ private parts pierced.
Oberholzer, who was head of drama at Willowridge High School in Pretoria, Gauteng, was fired after taking three students, two of whom are over 18-years-old, and one who was almost 16-years-old, to get the intimate piercings.
After he was fired, the teacher apologized for his actions.
“I was stupid, naive and should never have allowed the open and good relationship I had with the students go so far,” Pieter Oberholzer said.
He also said that although his actions could not be undone, rumours of sexual misconduct were unfair.
Oberholzer explained how it all happened. He said that his students saw his own penis ring in the locker room after swimming practice and asked about it.
Oberholzer claimed that since the day they saw his piercing, the students reportedly asked him to take them to get the same piercing, to which he finally agreed.
When they got to the place, the teens were unsure how safe it was.
In turn, their teacher had the procedure done on himself in front of the students so they could see that there was no danger in piercing the penis.
A few days after the incident took place, Oberholzer realized that he had made a mistake and told the principal about it, who in turn apologized to the parents.
School officials decided to fire Oberholzer because of his actions.
