Put another way

Let's say I've got a friend (I do!) and this particular friend wants to have sex with a mentally unstable (but not dangerous) woman in a committed relationship. He persuades her to do so, and she betrays her boyfriend to have sex with this friend. This friend has no intention of an ongoing relationship with the woman - he just wants sex, and tells her so all along.

Obviously she's morally (or ethically, if you prefer) culpable for betraying a trust. Is the friend who had sex with her morally or ethically culpable for a wrong act, and if so - what?

Even then, pigs or sex - my point is, soliciting a moral wrong is in and of itself a moral wrong, even if the other actor is willing. If you pay someone to harm another, you are culpable.

In this case he's persuading a woman to harm another for his own sexual gratification.

Agreed. Seeking to create a situation in which other parties commit unethical acts is as unethical as the acts perpatrated by the other parties. Of course, your wording is much less verbose than my own:).
