A mate and his girlfriend are having sex

Do you:
a) Watch
b) Not Watch
~
so says an interactive DVD produced for AFL players to improve their attitudes to women according to the NZ Herald. Of course it left out:
~
c) Offer to join in to double team her
d) Ask her if she's bi and you can bring your girlfriend over for an orgy
.
Both being quite legitimate options if they all consent. Similarly with the question:
.
You are called by a mate's girlfriend into her bedroom because she thinks you are her boyfriend.
.
Do you:
a - Go and hop into bed and pretend to be him.
b - Walk away.
.
Well hold on. Why not go, be yourself and see what she says. After all, what the hell are you doing at her house (or his house where she lives) and he isn't around? She might be keen for a shag anyway.
.
Poor lads, you can see them watching all confused, with questions like:
.
You are with a girl who has had too much to drink. Do you:
a - Get her some water.
b - Call her a taxi.
c - Take her back to your place for sex.
.
Watch the heads scratch when they wonder if this is a "place them in the right order" question, and wonder where the "is she hot" question gets answered. However, you can understand why it needs to be done. They are largely men full of testosterone and not a lot else, and surrounded by a culture whereby easy women hang off them, and they are bound to go for what they can.
.
I'm sure this will change things significantly hmmmm. Although is it not just enough to ask for them to not force themselves on women, and not take advantage of women who are unable to consent? Rather than roleplaying situations which are, frankly, not offering the more likely and adventurous options. After all, it is awfully sexist to assume only men have filthy minds, plenty of women I expect would happily consent to be gangbanged by AFL players!
