A steamy tale about an Argentinian teacher being filmed apparently having sex with an underage student – and the footage ending up on a porn site – has predictably gone viral.

Numerous media outlets reported Lucita Sandoval, supposedly a 26-year-old teacher from the northern city of Santiago del Estero had been suspended after the clip which supposedly featured her having sex with a 16-year-old student, hit the web.

The footage in question shows a woman having sex with a young man wearing a football shirt, who is also seen beaming and giving a thumbs-up to the camera.

'Lucita Sandoval' is listed as a public figure on Facebook

Pubications including the Mail Online and The Mirror breathlessly reported Sandoval had faced previous disciplinary hearings at the school over inappropriate relationships with students, but no action had been taken due to a lack of evidence.

The 23-minute long clip was reportedly shared by the boy with his friends on WhatsApp before going viral.

Since then, “Lucita Sandoval” has become something of an internet celebrity, with several Facebook pages dedicated to her.

But internet sleuths are now sniffing the air, having detected what looks suspiciously like a big 'ole publicity stunt.

Neuvo Diario says it has tracked down the man in the video, and writes that he isn’t an underage student. It cites his Facebook page as stating he is attending university.

And the woman in the video is not a teacher at the school in question, though her identity is yet to be publicly confirmed.

It quotes 'experts' who analysed the video and images from a Facebook page (which weirdly lists Lucita Sandoval as a ‘public figure’) as saying: “There are marks on the skin, beyond the nearly exact similarities between the [Facebook] photographs and the analysed frames [of the sex tape] that are almost impossible to replicate in position, shape and depth in two similar people.”

The newspaper believes the clip was a private sex tape posted to a porn site in September, though how the teacher-student story line came to be associated with it remains a mystery (though it undeniably helped it go viral).

Whoever this is, she's not a teacher at the school in question

Gawker, which also looked into the matter, adds: “Although she did go to school to teach English, the woman in the video isn’t a teacher in Santiago del Estero.

“She’s actually from a different city, Corrientes. Following the trail from her profile, they also tracked down the man in the video, who isn’t an underage student. His Facebook profile says he’s in college.”
