If you want to keep your teaching job, you probably shouldn’t take your students to get their penises pierced.

A South African teacher was fired for doing exactly that, and now says his actions were “stupid and naïve.”

57-year-old Pieter Oberholzer was a teacher held in high regard, reaching the position of the head of drama at Willowridge High School in Pretoria, until it was discovered that he took three of his pupils to get their penises pierced.

Oberholzer took the three male students — two over the age of 18 and one near the age of 16 — to a piercing studio to get their members pierced.

He claims he only did so after months of being “hounded” by the boys, who saw Oberholzer’s own piercing in the showers after swimming practice.

“We were preparing for Midmar (Mile swimming race) and I had a shoulder injury so I went to shower to warm up,” said Oberholzer to South African paper The Star.

“Two of the boys wanted to check on me and walked in while I was drying my hair and I immediately covered up.”

Oberholzer claims he helped them get to a reputable piercing artist so they would be safe.

“I agree 100 percent that I should not have got involved, I was trying to make sure they were safe. The guys threatened to pierce themselves. I’m also terribly sorry for the stress it has caused my family and friends.”

A few days after the incident, Oberholzer realized he had made a mistake in taking the boys there, and he informed the headteacher and the boys’ parents.

Oberholzer lost his job after a disciplinary hearing, despite the parents of the students not pressing charges.

There were other blunders that may have factored into Oberholzer being sacked, including allegedly giving students penis-shaped pasta and letting students skip class. Yeah, that’ll do it.
