Written laws have to draw bright lines and be black-and-white about it, but the real world is full of nuance. Who's a victim and who's a predator doesn't always start the day someone turns 18, or the day people's behavior becomes a matter of public discussion. A sexual encounter that's a huge trauma to one person might be a lark to another in the same situation. Extortion could be hushed up (Rembert Weakland, anyone remember him?), or could be played for laughs. Not only context, but personal responses define how a situation unfolds.
We know very little about these women (I assume it's all women) or how they acted or how they defined their experiences. Monica Lewinski was never that much of a victim -- hell, she just about brought down a presidency and in another time and place would have been the subject of sagas and epic poems. Any player has the leverage to redefine the context of a story if they seize the opportunity. I'm with Uncle Leaver on this one. It's time to quit reflexively declaring the woman (or the younger adult, or the person lower on the corporate hierarchy) in these situations as the victim. Every story is different.
It's time the US took a more, well, European attitude toward adult consensual sex. We are not talking about some creepy priest and a bunch of little boys here, we're talking about functioning employed grown-ups. Sure, they may have done some dumb stuff, but who hasn't (or hasn't yet) in one way or another? Entertaining, yes. Criminal, no. That's for bigger stuff.
