Okay.. now let's suppose this woman is adament about having her way with you, 'but' is also insistant that no force be applied -- i.e. she prefer to get her way through voluntary means, by a gradual process of wearing down any resistance. Yes, and btw, (of course) she is married.. but confies that she is working this job (and two others) as a means of saving to divorce her husband for reasons not really relevant here. Okay, so; it is 'you' that is 'stuck' at work with Hally Berry, -(actually really with someone whom even Hally Berry would look up to ! ) What do 'you' do?.. Yes, I know already that the 'flesh is weak' -but I am a believer that the spirit can compensate.. Okay, that's my say.. -what is yours? (Please, nothing ''preachy'') .. Thanks for contributing




MODS: This is foo? ..but feel free to move to P&R if gets to lively.. -or something. :P
Red, you're out of P&R? I'm .....stunned!

OK, to respond? The flesh may be weak, but my wife means more to me.

Honestly, if I was a college aged male, working with a good looking woman, and she wanted to jump my bones......

I would.

It would be a delicious mistake to think about for the rest of my life.

All I can think of when I hear Halley Berry is that disgusting scene from monsters ball. I never saw it, but a local radio show played that nauseating "can you make me feel good, make me feel good, just make me feel good" crap over and over. Gross.

With that in mind, if Halley Berry hit on me I would run away, fast.

Honesty! . . but, okay.. 'honestly' -would it be 'worth' the ''possible'' but potentially real risk of a bloodclot -from a machet? - 'honestly' ..

I mean it's also 'possible' that any one of us could get struck by a bus just on an everyday commute to or from work.. i.e. risks are a given in 'any' of lifes endeavours.. yeah. -(?) -?

I'm sorry, but I don't understand the second part of your reply. I did not mention risks. If I was a young man, I would not be thinking about risks, but rather getting my ashes hauled.

I didn't start risk analysis until I had crashed and burned in many areas of my life.

Experience is that wonder thing that allows you to recognize a mistake when you do it again.

Red, I do know a lot of folk that would consider sexual harrassment a fringe benefit!

first of all this is not harressment if you are considering getting intimate with her but all that spares you from it is her hubby finding out and possibly hurt you, so what are we debating here? if we think you should jeperdise your job and health over a sexually agressive woman??? you're young and attrative so it seems if you have a beautiful woman after you, so why not get the girls that are accessible to you and leave go back to a working environment as far as work is concern... cut dry? yeah maybe but Im a strong beliver that you dont s*** where you eat and if you know the detail of her relationship just from working with her, you guys allready cross the boundaries of work, noone should get on such personnal basis at work, it's gets too freaky.. leave the bar talks in bars and leave the work time for work discussions

It's only sexual-harrassment if you're not date-worthy... Hot chics & guys can get away with it...

I've had older women flirt and pinch me before, it wasn't a big deal. Although I was really in it for the free drinks...

Yes.. my dear, it would be harassment if it was a 'man' who was coming on so strong.. The only difference (I believe) -is that men may tend to have a higher ''tolarence'' -for ''harassment'' if it is coming from an 'attractive' other of the opposite sex, -it is more ''acceptable''.. If I was your work colleague and I was to ask you what your favourite colour was.. -and then the next week I come to show you 95 percent of my sexy 'dark blue' thong? .. -Yes, that would be almost certainly 'harassment' for 'most' women.. but if a stunning woman does this for a male colleague -(or fellow worker) ? -haha, I bet the HR dept. would 'laugh' and ask; ''so.. what's your problem, exactly -?'' ..yeah, it's 'funny' coz it is true :P


..it's 'only' harassment if men do it.

it's only haressment on both sex or either sex if it was an innapropriate unwelcome idea.. you have welcome the idea or even considerated the idea...is it haressment if you're asking us if it's worth getting caught??? if you are not intesrested... you didnt have to listen to her telling you all about her private life, you could right then and there tell her that she crossed the bounderies of work and personnal discussions like these are not welcome to you, you somehow let that happend and yep, it opens the door to unwanted other ideas... it's always wrong, no matter how beautiful but it only becomes haressment if you didnt welcome the idea... I somehow, maybe Im wrong but was under the impression that you wouldnt mind her as a sexual partner... so nope, if you consider sleeping with her, it's not haressment.
