Topic: Transformative Consent and Dangerous Liaisons Alan Wertheimer’s article, “Consent to Sexual Relations” establishes criteria for both moral and legal transformative consent (Wertheimer, 1). He states: Although I will not always explore the differences between these two versions of CMT, there may, for example, be good reason to treat consent induced by certain forms of deception as legally transformative while also insisting that it does not render sexual relations morally permissible. (Wertheimer, 3). Essay Writing Assignment Using Wertheimer’s article as a basis, define legal and moral consent. Then, select one or two examples from Laclos’ Dangerous Liaisons to illustrate how each type of consent is or is not depicted. For example, you may want to consider how Valmont deceives Madame de Tourvel to get her to have sexual relations with him which could be considered moral consent. Another aspect is how he deceives Cecile to get her to have sexual relations which could be considered legal but deceptive consent. In addition, there is Merteuil who deceives the Chevalier Danceny who in turn deceives Cecile. Note: There are many examples in the novel (movie). Also, Wertheimer writes a 35 page academic article on the topic of consent. You are required to produce 250 words. Choose your definitions carefully and succinctly you do not have to reproduce the entire article on consent. It is more important to establish a definition, select examples, and write a clear and direct essay.
