Minute 7:00 quote:

“I do think if we are going to use a term like say ‘immoral’ it needs to be reserved to causing distress or harm on an actual subjectively experiencing organism, (e.g. human being or animal). I think that to refer to somebody who has a psychological profile as being ‘immoral’ even in the absence of acting on that, it doesn’t make a lot of  sense.”

Also Minute 10:00 Acrotomophilia example: one person in a marriage has shame that leads to silence about a specific fetish, other spouse finds out and divorces, ethical question:

“What is the responsibility of each person in the couple to ‘share’ their sexual fantasies?”
