‘Teacher-student affair’ (師生戀) is not something strange we may see the relevant news from the newspaper occasionally. Some people argued government should prohibit such affairs by enacting the laws because society should ‘protect the children’ from the abuse of teachers. This paper is going to examine the above argument by different dimensions including the human right angle, the news reporting focus of the teacher-student affair cases, current relevant laws, the influence of power relationship between teacher and student, and etc. Several local news of teacher-student affair and the arguments of Foucault's power perspective and Josephine Ho's (何春蕤) view on the sex of youth will also be briefly discussed. Moreover, the paper will try to establish a principle (what teacher should(not) do) for the teacher to develop the relationship with student on the fundamental of equality.

我們經常會在報張中看到關於「師生戀」(Teacher-student Affair)的報導。有人主張政府應立法禁止師生戀,以保護兒童免遭老師侵犯。本文將嘗試以不同角度,包括人權、傳媒對師生戀的報導焦點、現行相關法例、師生權力關係等去探討應否立法禁止師生戀行為。相關本地新聞、傅柯(Foucault)對於權力的視點,以及何春蕤(Josephine Ho)對於年青人的性的看法將被簡潔地論及。此外,本文將嘗試建立一套原則,讓師生可在一個平等的基礎上發展師生戀(有甚麼是老師不/應做的)。
