That’s not social distancing! Extraordinary moment a law lecturer is forced to step in after catching two students getting VERY frisky in her class
- A lecturer has caught two of her students engaged in a sex act during her class
- She said there was a time and place for ‘special love time’ and her class wasn’t it
- The lecturer said this is the second time she has dealt with this in her career
A university professor was forced to stop a law lecture to tell off two students for brazenly committing a sex act in the theatre as she taught.
The professor was teaching a class, which was being streamed online, at Macquarie University in Sydney’s north-west on Tuesday.
The live broadcast caught the awkward moment the lecturer discovered the couple were getting frisky in her class.
‘I know precedent is a very sexy topic and I love when my audiences are engaged and animated but there is a limit to that,’ she said.
‘Ironically it is the law – law students – and the student code of conduct that governs that.’

The lecturer said there was a time and a place for ‘special love time’ and her class wasn’t it.
She admitted it was the second time she had caught students getting intimate during a lecture.
‘No below the belt touching in my lecture theatre please,’ she added, which was met with rowdy calls from students in the room to call out the guilty couple.
‘I am not going to name and shame,’ the lecturer continued.
‘Just to clarify, this is a mentoring unit so I will give some advice – the strategic placement of the hoodie on the lap only draws the eye more.’
The unnamed university lecturer joked she wasn’t sure whether she was glad that the university was kept open, as many had been closed or moved to online classes due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Social media users couldn’t help but laugh at what had happened in the class.
‘Seeking relief from what they were tort,’ one person joked.
Another said: ‘Well handled by the lecturer (pun intended).’
Many were shocked by the lecturer’s admission that it wasn’t the first time she had been forced to call out such behaviour.
‘Sorry, that’s the second time it’s happened in her career,’ one person tweeted.
Classes at the university are now paused until they can completely transition to online by March 30, in compliance with the government’s coronavirus measures.
A spokesperson from the university told Daily Mail Australia: ‘The University is aware of the alleged incident and the lecturer took the right steps to manage the incident at that time.
‘We remind students of our Student Code of Conduct in relation to their behaviour at Macquarie University.’
