    The woman willingly and for her selfish motive of getting a job slept with the job-giver. This means if she had been given the job, the sexual act would not have been rape. None forced her and she engaged in sexual act on er own and more importantly,at her own risk. Even if there was a mutual agreement of ‘Job-for-sex’ between the two, it is unenforceable in law.
