Consent: 100, tension 24.
They find it weird that I have no problem when someone changes their mind to participate in a drinking game with me, but I do have a problem with giving my body to a platonic friend who is either drunk, went through a bad break up, or is just lonely.

Oh well.

Giving your body - no guy would think that way. I guess that accounts for the diff.

If you go to the home page there's lots of other philosophical quandries. Try the drowning child one. I don't agree with their conclusion.

:lol:
EXACTLY! They just want sex! But I don't want sex with a platonic friend because they are intoxicated or emotionally unstable! ;-)

It's funny, because they were talking about "the other person" regretting and how I should respond knowing they would regret. Well, I am not going to do anything I would regret, and thinking for someone else is one of those :lol:

I just went along with the scenario, where it said you wanted to have sex.

Only if their goal was the same. It's highly unlikely that in real life, at this stage of my life I would say yes to casual sex. But there was a time when I certainly would have, as long as the other person was interested too and was able to give consent. And the sex scenarios, some of them, could have been as much about emotional comforting as getting your rocks off. The alcohol ones didn't really present that facet, tho they could have. Thing is you can sit with somebody while they drink without drinking yourself, but sitting with somebody while they have sex is just creepy, so you know, you'd have to get in there. Sacrifice yourself.

ROTFL ROTFL
Creepy to you :P I'm pretty sure there are many people who don't think that way. Think porn, webcam shows, peep shows (is that what you call them in English too? :lol: )

I didn't know you went for that sort of thing. No wonder you got such a high conflict score. Oh, well, we all have our vices I guess.

Consent 0%
Tension 0%

Quote:
Earlier on, you endorsed a principle of autonomy that holds that people should be free to make their own decisions about what is or is not "good" for them, and that the idea of protecting a person from their own choices is at best patronising and at worst disrespectful. This suggests that a sexual encounter will only be ruled out on moral grounds in exceptional circumstances (assuming that all participants are (a) of sound mind, (b) at least normally aware of the likely consequences of their actions, and (c) consenting). Certainly, in terms of this principle, for example, it does not seem it would be wrong to go ahead with a sexual encounter merely because it is likely one of the participants will come to regret its occurrence.

In general terms, it is worth noting that given your endorsement of this principle of autonomy, it makes sense that you are less likely than average to think that a sexual encounter, in any given situation, will be ruled out on moral grounds.


You don't want to play drinking games with me? Then don't ask to.

You don't want to get intimate with me? Then don't ask to.

I usually don't spend excessive time analyzing my friends motivations. I'm straight with them and they are straight with me.

No bullshit.

If I had a friend who previously said they "didn't want to have sex with me" and now are coming onto me (for whatever reason, lonely, a little liquid courage, breakup, etc.), I wouldn't presume to tell them that "they don't really mean it" and reject them based on the fact they might change their mind tomorrow.

I'm not big on mind games.

Probably wasn't a good idea to take this particular test after having a couple of drinks :oops:

And being tired and also half-watching a movie at the same time...

:lol: It even told me that I was inconsistent. I certainly did not score "average", but I think maybe I misread a couple of the scenarios. Weirdly, one of them was very close to a real-life situation a few years ago. 8O

Your Consentometer score is 40%, which compares to an average score of 60%.
Your Tension Quotient score is 24%, which compares to an average Tension Quotient of 12%.

Its an interesting test to be sure. Maybe this makes me an awful person, but with regards to the first question, if your friend wants to have a good drunkening with you and if they're of sound mind, whats the problem? For whatever reason, they've changed their mind, and so be it. If they're in a altered state, that's a completely different matter then.

I'll say the test did rightly point out the inconsistency in my morality. I've always considered myself as a Utilitarian though some of my answers brought that into opposition with Kant's morality.

I can probably chalk that down to the fact that I'm single, lonely, haven't had a GF in years much less any other kind of female contact and that the chance of a reversal of that trend would send my morals packing in a hurry,

0% & 0%. Someone elses regrets aren't my problem! :lol:
Holds with my belief that people are responsible for their own choices.
