A matter of respect


I posted the message below on a group site, but wanted to include it here so anyone could respond to it, even if they were not part of the group.

Do you have standards and values you refuse to compromise regardless of the setting?

Would you tolerate disrespectful behavior just because you were wearing something provocative? Or because of your choice of 'venue'? Or because of the behavior of the people around you or those who accompanied you?

Do you bend your own rules just because you feel it may be expected of you in certain settings or with certain groups or locations?

GENTS: Do you feel entitled touch, taste, and/or feel a woman - even someone you don't know or maybe just met - just because she has either entered an establishment where sexual behavior is expected or encouraged, and/or she is with a group from A.F.F. ?

Do any of you assume it is okay to get physical with someone else's partner without expressed permission from both of them just because you are at a sex group gathering or sex-based venue?
I'm not talking about greeting them with a hug and or kiss...let's be real - I think you all know what I mean.

We are such a diverse group - I can't wait to see the responses!

As for me, I expect to be treated with respect regardless of where I am, what I am wearing, or who I am with. I do agree that certain apparel and party settings may imply an invitation to cross boundaries is possible, but I don't believe it should be a given.
I am a flirt, but I would never risk hurting someone's feelings by touching them, or their partner, in a way that would disrespect either of them.
