Only thing sexually immoral: abuse of authority position

I am very tolerant about sex, and find acceptable most practices. I draw the line at using a superior position or job to extract sex from a vulnerable person. the classic one was psychtherapist-patient. The love the patient feels is called transference, but may simply be the affection one feels for someone who is paying attention to intimate emotions about your life. The therapist is supposed to have the ethics not to abuse the positionof trust to actualize the love fantasy.

similarly it is unfair for a teacher, priest, attorney, doctor or other professional who is in a trusted position to take advantage for sex. Of course a husband attorney can represent his wife, etc. Generally doctors do not treat a relative unless unavoidable.

Similarly a boss should not have sex with a subordinate as that can be sexual harassment if things end badly as they can. Co workers can sleep together but this is rarely a great idea. Hard to see them again after the break up!

Tell me what you draw the line at in sex.

I had a boss many years ago that cornered me in the back room. Not really knowing what else to do I punched him in the gut and told him to stay the hell away from me. It worked. I agree with you about workplace relations. If people are smart they'd avoid them at all costs. I've seen too many people loose good jobs because the relationship didn't work out.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

You forgot to mention parents, step parents or foster parents or any other sort of relatives or person who is in authority over a child and uses that position to abuse the child. Now that to me is truly abhorrent. Adults at least have a LITTLE better chance of saying no to a person in power but a child does not but I agree with you that no one should abuse a position of power in that way.

As for anything else, what goes on between CONSENTING ADULTS is up to them. I personally would draw the line at several things that some on here seem interested in but that is me.

Well I include parents obviously n a position of trust with their kids. I omitted the obvious. I also oppose any unconsented use of force. Pretend with consent is ok. Real is not!

Also fraud over real health status as in lying about having a STD is not acceptable.
