Jacques Tremblay in trouble for softcore porn bookAn official in charge of discipline at a teachers' college in the Canadian province of Ontario is facing public scrutiny after it surfaced that he helped write a soft-porn book about the sexual adventures of pubescent teens.

The book, titled "The Sexteens and the Fake Goddess," is a graphic, fictional account of teens' misadventures that include orgasms, fondling, grabbing and drug use that features a deputy headmaster who, among other things, fails to report a case of sexual abuse. the Toronto Star reports.

The real-life teacher, Jacques Tremblay, presides over many of the tough cases that come before the Ontario College of Teachers' disciplinary committee, which would include instances of sexual abuse by teachers, as well as physical and verbal abuse.

UPDATE: CBC News is reporting that Tremblay has resigned from the discipline committee as a result of the Star report and was also stepping down as a member of Ontario College of Teachers' governing council.

Committee members determine the guilt or innocence of teachers accused of such abuses and mete out punishment and determine whether such teachers should be named publicly.

In that role, the newspaper says, Tremblay is "one of the most important education officials in Ontario."

Tremblay defended the book, telling the Star in a written response that his literary efforts are separate from his "public interest" work at the college.

The "Sexteens" book, Tremblay said, "is meant to empower teenagers, to encourage them to be strong and resist or avoid peer pressure." Tremblay further said that the book has "been endorsed by parents and educators," although he didn't identify the endorsers.

Asked about Tremblay's book and his watchdog role, college spokesman Brian Jamieson issued two brief statements.

One of those noted that Tremblay is "a member of council and chair of discipline and his writing does not have an impact on his ability to act in the public interest and there is no evidence of such."
