Some Piedmont High School students have been involved in a "Fantasy Slut League," in which male athletes "draft" female students and earn points for sexual encounters with them, school officials have told parents.
The league has been in existence for five or six years but only came to school officials' attention several weeks ago, according to a letter Piedmont High School Principal Rich Kitchens sent out to families on Friday.
In discussions following a date-rape awareness assembly on Oct. 3, students brought the league to the attention of officials, who then followed up with an investigation.
"It has been reported that students on some of our Varsity Teams have set up a 'Fantasy Slut League' in which our female students (unbeknownst to most of them) are drafted as part of the league," Kitchens wrote in the letter. "Male students earn points for documented engagement in sexual activities with female students."
Kitchens noted in the letter that officials have a commitment from current varsity athletes that the activity will not continue in the future.
The school is not planning to discipline the students involved, said Randall Booker, an assistant superintendent of educational services, and he declined to say how many students might have been involved.
"Our focus really isn't pinpointing the who or the details," he said. "Our focus is really about having this continued conversation with kids, getting them to feel comfortable, getting them to learn why this is disrespectful, inappropriate." Read more at SF Gate
