“Morality in sexual relations, when it is free from superstition, consists essentially in respect for the other person, and unwillingness to use that person solely as a means of personal gratification, without regard to his or her desires.”

I remember a concise statement of practical sexual morality from someplace:

Tell no lies, spread no diseases, conceive no children*, break no hearts.

[ * obviously, unless the two of you both clearly and deliberately want that ]
