Nude art model scandal manner at Silpakorn University
Silpakorn University said on Monday an investigation had confirmed that a part-time art lecturer had lured a female student into posing for him in an “inappropriate manner”, and he was being fired.
The university had investigated the accusation, first posted on the popular Pantip web board on July 14 and widely shared on social media. The inquiry had confirmed the incident occurred as alleged, the statement said. A part-time lecturer in the faculty of decorative arts had talked a female student into posing for photographs in an “inappropriate manner” while alone with him in a room reserved for thesis inspection, the statement said. It did not name the man involved. The university had resolved to terminate his work contract, but was not in a position to punish him because he was not on the permanent staff, the statement said. In July, a Pantip user posted on the web board that his girlfriend, a student at Silpakorn University’s faculty of decorative arts, was lured into posing as a nude art model for a male lecturer.
According to his post, the lecturer asked her to model for a private project, in which he intended to draw female characters from Thai traditional literature. The poster said that when his girlfriend went to the lecturer’s work studio only the teacher was present, and he immediately locked the door.”My girlfriend was asked to come alone, so she was quite scared.
At first, the lecturer told her to take off her clothes but allowed her to keep in her bra and underpants. After he took photos of her for a while, he suddenly told her to remove her undergarments. He even used a pair of scissors to cut her silicone bra,” he wrote. The boyfriend claimed the lecturer then asked his girlfriend to do an m-shape leg spread and touched her shoulders and hip, but the student took fright and refused to do so. “After my girlfriend refused to do what he asked, he told her to get dressed, but he took photos the entire time she was putting on her clothes,” he wrote.
The boyfriend wrote that his girlfriend was not this lecturer’s first victim. He was notorious for asking female students he thought were attractive to model for his drawings. Bangkok Post
