    Respect also means, obviously, disengaging politely when the other party is interested in something else.  And given the time constraint and environment in which these meetings take place, I doubt there's much opportunity to hurt anyone unless you're going out of your way to be louse.  

    Obviously, there are tons of men out there who will marinate whatever line they take with varying of misogyny.  On the other hand, it's unfair to ask people who neither want or need it to seek out intimacy beyond mutual sexual attraction just to meet some arbitrary standard of respect.

      You know, the more I read, the more I'm wondering what exactly it is you saw in my original post because I'm nodding along with everything you've said.

      I honestly have no interest in how or why someone is having sex, just so long it's consensual, safe, and respectful for all the partners involved.

        superficial physical attraction and that alone.  There is a line between titillation and abusive behavior, and that's fueled by misogyny among other things.  Still, I nothing unhealthy, unethical or shameful about offering and pursuing titillation for its own sake--no strings attached.
