For instance: a partner may have a ethical responsibility to participate in intercourse because of the other partner; it may be morally permissible for married people to hire contraception while doing coitus; one person’s agreeing to possess intimate relations with someone as soon as the previous does not have any sexual interest of their very very very own but does like to please the latter could be an work of supererogation; and rape and incest can be considered to be morally incorrect. 続きを読む Online Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
