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?

The fact that this discussion taking it down to the specific details and debating and negotiating it back and forth is pretty much an indicator of the fact that its more on the "wrong" side than the "right.

While I don't think that the person in question is the Devil, I do think it demonstrates a weak moral compass.

There are so many other people out there without the Jerry Springer drama. Why voluntarily jump into this one?
I know that's beside the point.

Long story short:

If you have to ask it / debate it, it's probably the wrong choice.

It certainly isn't a nice thing to do. We're just trying to hash out whether it's wrong -- and if it is, if it's any different than the pig situation I posted about in my LJ.
