Teacher In Trouble For Writing Erotica

Updated on March 16, 2012

Most writers have other forms of income on the side because being a full time author seldom pays all the bills. There are a few lucky ones who get movie deals or on the best seller list like Stephanie Meyer or J. K. Rowling and make it big but most of us have to find other means of keeping the debtors from our door.

Judy Buranich has taught English and written books for more than a couple of decades. The problem is a couple of women decided to make her genre a public issue and try to get her removed from the school.

Some knew that Judy Buranich wrote erotica under the pseudonym of Judy Mays but most didn’t care because she kept her sexual fantasies out of the class room and is a great teacher. She never mentioned to her students that she was a published author, didn’t dress risqué or proposition any of the students. Until a couple of people decided to make it public most of her kids didn’t have a clue.


Judy is also a wife and mother of grown children. To look at her you would never suspect she writes naughty stories; she just looks like a middle age schoolteacher.

It sounds like these women have an axe to grind. They had to do some serious digging to find this information. One of the mothers says she doesn’t read these kinds of books and thinks they are terrible but I think she must be reading them on the sly to have found out that Mrs. Buranich writes them. How else would she know?

The interesting thing about all this is that it has made her even more famous. Before this big story and the attention on YouTube and facebook I hadn’t heard of her or read any of her work but I have since ordered some and so are other people. It seems that these mothers who were trying to get her fired have only managed to give her free publicity and help her sell more books.

Erotica has a huge number of fans. Just walk down any romance aisle in a bookstore and you will see the large selection lining the shelves. Even grocery stores carry a wide variety of what my husband calls nekkid men books.

Here’s a young man who is a former student of hers who made a YouTube video showing his appreciation for Mrs. Buranich and what a fine teacher he thinks she is.
