My boyfriend and i were making out at the movies and one of my teachers was there and saw us. He could tell Lontrell is quiet a bit older than me and is now threatening to tell my dad who he has become good friends with over the last 3 years. if my dad finds out i'll be in a ton of trouble because i told him i was going with my friend and have been hiding the fact that i'm going out with him. what should i do?

Well, you can't really do much. It's kind of weird of your teacher to care so much out of a school setting, but I'd suspect that has more to do with being friends with your dad.

But you know, you chose this, and you have to face the consequences. This is a prime example of how your boyfriend can get reported even if you don't tell anyone, btw. You may choose to lessen the blow by talking to your parents yourself before your teacher gets the chance.

Whether it's against the law or not depends on your age. If you're 18+ than anything is legal.Beyond that I'm not quite sure what the law says. I think as long as you don't have sex than age doesn't matter. Obviously if you're under age and he isn't than he can go to jail for statutory rape. But as long as making out goes, I don't think there's any legal recourse. The only punishment either of you will have to worry about is that of your parents and sometimes that's worse than jail...

If you're against Oral Sex than quite simply keep your mouth shut!

You know what, though? Being caught is actually a pretty rare occurance with AoC violations. Your teacher would have to do nothing but call the police and say he had good reason to suspect an adult having a sexual relationship with his 14-year-old student, and they'd likely prosecute him without question. That's simply the way the legal system works, as much as it sucks.

But yes, heavy kissing/petting/making out can be classified as a sexual activity, and police have been known to treat it as such when they see it, if all the public lewdness violations between adults are any indication.

With all the racial taboos you've mentioned along with this? It might be the best idea for both of you. As I believe was mentioned before in one of your posts, if your area is really prejudiced, he may get a heavier court sentence than other offenders.

If you choose to go on, you have to be prepared for situations just like this and worse. You have to ask yourself which choice has the better outcome based on the possibilities, and go from there.
