A high price to pay...

I was watching this movie, Crossing Over. It's about immigrants in the US, starring Harrison Ford and Ray Liotta. Quite a serious movie.

Anyway, in one of the many storylines, Ray Liotta's character is this guy who works with the immigration department... he meets this really hot Australian girl who is working in the country illegally. So, since he's got a bit of power, he promises her a green card if she will sleep with him, whenever he wants it, for the next two months... of course, she does it, and feels like crap...

Now that got me thinking about a few things... first of all, if I was in a position of power, would I do the same thing?

A few years ago, I had a girlfriend who was actually one of my subordinates... now don't start judging me yet... here's the whole story...

Okay, I was sleeping with somebody who reported to me. But, when we started out, she was not reporting to me. One day, my boss decides to 'expand my empire' and gives me control of a few areas, including the staff. She was one of the 'new converts'...

Now this presented quite a problem. I had a couple of options. My first option was to keep her on my staff, work wise, and keep her off my 'staff', personal wise. You see she was really good at her job. She was somebody I can depend on professionally. My second option would be the opposite of option one. In the end, a third option came up. We continued to be together both professionally and personally.

Of course there were things in place to make sure both worlds remain separate... for one, there was a person the she reported to instead of directly reporting to me... my assistant actually... to make things fair, she wasn't the only one who reported to my assistant... a whole section did... it was good for my assistant as well. She just got something interesting to write on her resume! And another thing was, even though I did the appraisals for the whole team, I did leave one out for my assistant to do, which was my girlfriends appraisal.

So I guess, if I was in a position of power, would I get sex out of a person. Probably not... I couldn't do it... Heck, I didn't even want to complicate things when it was my own girlfriend. I seriously doubt I can do it with a 'stranger'...

The other question that I had was, if I was presented with the opportunity to sleep my way to the top, would I?

I asked a friend earlier today if she would do it... Being very attractive, there was a chance that some asshole has presented the opportunity to her. Her answer was simple... she wouldn't... she has to actually like the guy to sleep with him... since we're like two peas in a pod, I guess I found my answer about myself...

Now what about the people that do take up the offer... do they consider themselves as prostitutes? In the end, that's what they are... do they scoff at the street walkers?

I haven't been in the same position, so I'm not going to judge them... I guess I'll know how they feel if it ever happens to me...
