Summary/Abstract: The paper analyses the question of the permissibility of sexual relationships between teachers and students, primarily from the perspective of existing criminal prohibitions. And in those cases in which the sexual relationship between teacher and student is legally allowed, the position of inequality of these persons reasonably casts doubt on the social-ethical acceptability of such a relationship. Most of the work is devoted to legal-dogmatic analysis of the actus reus and mens rea of the offence of sexual intercourse through abuse of position by teacher or educator. Given the fact that this offence is arguable, it is essential that criminal zone in this case should be interpreted restrictively, so as to cover only cases in which really comes to the abuse of position or trust.
