The world's hottest teacher complains he's a victim of male objectification

When a student posted an image of heartthrob math’s teacher Pietro Boselli on a social media site, it sparked an internet frenzy in the weeks that followed.
The handsome Italian model with a PhD was widely celebrated for being the perfect mix of beauty and brains.
However, it seems such attention comes with a downside. Boselli is now claiming he's unhappy with the way his looks have all but dwarfed his academic capabilities...and that some women can't keep their hands to their selves.
The 26-year-old originally from Brescia, Italy, claims he knows how Games of Thrones actor Kit Harington feels when he says he's been 'objectified' by women.
Harington said recently: 'To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning...in the same way as it is for women.'
Boselli said his rise to fame had seen women grab his bottom, which made him feel uncomfortable, adding: 'If a guy did to a girl some of the things I've been subjected too, everyone would agree how out of line they were - yet it's often accepted the other way around.'
Boselli, who has been modelling since he was six years old, originally tried to keep his modelling a secret from his colleagues at the University College London (UCL) where he taught for fear they might 'look down on him'.
Boselli has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and is hoping that the money he earns from modelling will help him to establish his own engineering company in London.
And let's take a moment to appreciate that Pietro's academic achievements are easily as impressive as his six-pack.
He was awarded the Undergraduate Faculty Excellence Scholarship for the most outstanding academic achievement in his first year at UCL, before going on to get first-class honours.
