Betsy Brashear, 24, Arrested For Seducing Teen Boy In Tanning Booth

In the most tabloid-y thing we’ve seen since Tan Mom, an Oklahoma woman named Betsy Brashear was arrested last week after allegedly trying to seduce a 15-year-old boy by way of a tanning bed. A tanning bed tryst, if you will.

The story goes that Brashear, 24, lured the teen into a gym tanning room, removed her clothing and began kissing him. The boy’s mother–who’d noticed Brashear flirting with her son earlier–asked nearby gym members to “keep an eye out” (how is this real?) for illicit stuff.

Sure enough, a good gymaritan (HA) witnessed the pair enter the tanning room and informed the boy’s mother. She promptly went to find them and, when the boy answered the door, she spotted Brashear, apparently trying to hide. Brashear was wearing “nothing but a sports bra.”

When police arrived, Brashear claimed she was aware of the boy’s age but didn’t think it was a big deal to kiss him (!). She was charged with lewd acts with a minor, her bond set at $20,000.

Now we need to come up with a nickname for her! HuffPo had Tanning Temptress.

    Interesting. If a 24-year old man kissed a 15-year old girl at a tanning salon, I doubt anyone would take issue with calling him a pedophile, etc. And some of you are saying that 15-year old boys are always horny. Even if 15-year old boys are always horny, that doesn’t therefore mean adults can take advantage of them. This an issue of power and responsibility. There’s a huge power, developmental, and experience gap between a 15-year old boy with his mom and a full-grown 24-year old woman. This lady is a predator.

    Finally, 15-year old girls aren’t horny. Really? They aren’t? That’s news to me. It just seems whenever this type of thing happens, the boys sexuality is exaggerated; but when this happens to a girl, the girl’s sexuality is downplayed.

    We live in a very interesting world filled with double standards.

    If a 24-year old man was caught kissing (and doing whatever else Brashear did) a 15-year old girl, I doubt anyone would take issue with the term pedophile being used; and I presume he would have been charged with more than a “lewd act.” Some of you are saying that 15-year old boys are always horny. Even if 15-year old boys are always horny, that doesn’t therefore mean adults can take advantage of them. This is an issue of power and responsibility. There’s a huge power, developmental, and experience gap between a 15-year old boy with his mom and a full-grown 24-year old woman.

    Finally, 15-year old girls aren’t horny too. Really? They seemed pretty horny back when I went to school with them. It just seems whenever this type of thing happens, the boys sexuality is exaggerated; but when this happens to a girl, the girl’s sexuality is downplayed.

    Oh, and will Brashear have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life like a man would need to? I doubt it. Misandry.

      I’m not saying your points aren’t valid, but maybe wait for someone to say what you actually disagree with before you go on a rant.

      I would be surprised if any Gloss reader took the position you oppose.

    Plain and simple, she’s a pedophile and will probably do it again.
