Maybe this is a conversation I had with my long deceased father. He said, that if I cared about the young women that I was dating, that I should refrain from having sex with them. The reason is that it might be in various ways something that could be harmful to them.

You do not harm people you care about.

Is this simple philosophy teachable or in any way unreasoned?.

And I'll bet a buck you didn't hear that simple wisdom in school.
