AMSTERDAM — The primary school teacher who was told to stay home a week for appearing in skimpy clothing in a men's magazine has admitted she tried to prevent the publication of new photos of herself and girlfriend Durkje.
Ingrid — who works at the public school 't Holdersnêst in the Friesland village of Harkema — was the subject of feverish attention last week when photos of herself at an erotic fair in Utrecht were published in the April issue of the magazine Foxy.
Three new photos of the two women now appear in the May issue of the magazine.
Editor-in-chief Peter Muller said the latest issue was already printed prior to the controversy sparked by the April edition. He said its publication could not have been prevented.
Muller has also asked Ingrid to participate in a "glamorous" photo shoot, but has not received a response.
The director of the 't Holdersnêst school, Willem Wouda, revealed on Saturday that Ingrid had been advised to stay home for a week while the storm raged around her.
She will remain at home until the media attention fades. "We are assessing the situation every day," the general director of school foundation ROOBOL, Joekie Blom, said on Wednesday.
Parents of the school pupils were recently informed about the photos, but the school has ruled out taking disciplinary action against the teacher.
Admitting it was a very uncomfortable matter, Wouda said "as a teacher, you set an example, but this is of course not a hanging offence".
The photos of Ingrid and Durkje have also attracted international attention, with magazines and websites from Ireland, France and Germany contacting Foxy, the biggest sex magazine in the Netherlands.
And in Friesland, all copies of the magazine were sold out and subscriptions in the northern province have risen explosively, editor Muller said.
As a form of thanks for the free publicity, the magazine's editors have decided to take Ingrid and Durkje and their partners out to dinner.
"They've earned that," Muller said.
