Consequential Sex by J. Douglas Johnson

Consequential Sex

In sexual matters, "consent," they tell us, is what really matters. As long as you have that, anything goes. It would be wise for every college kid to place a miniature bassinet somewhere in his or her dorm room. It would serve as a reminder that there is a potential third party in the room who has no consent, but who has more on the line than anyone. In the end, orgasms without consequences, like gay sex, are a myth.
