    I disagree, or would at least argue that "doesn't necessarily" still leaves room for the vast majority of cases to develop in this direction-- and consequentialist analysis aside, this still occurs in the vast majority of cases when the party with authority enters the relationship with the best of intentions. They simply do not believe that they will end up abusing their power.

    No, I think an absolute moral prohibition of entering into sexual relationships with one's subordinates is the bare minimum requirement.

    Do you have empirical research validating this assessment? That is, the specific premise that relationships between a superior and a subordinate typically end in the consequence of harm? Otherwise, I'm not overly concerned. The everyday institutions of wage labor trouble me as being more negative forms of hierarchy.
