... it's up to the OP to weigh the risks, but to act like there aren't any is just dumb.
You misunderstood my point. By "the talk" I was referencing the inane "we work together, I have to be responsible, so that shouldn't happen again, yada yada." Of course
there are risks - what adventure with the fairer sex doesn't involve it? (unless with your S.O., although some may debate even that.) I merely advised that he should ensure that both parties understand what the interaction involves (e.g. sex) and what it doesn't (e.g. relationship) - this is the antithesis to "leave it up to her interpretation."
My own experiences have been limited to women who were even more career-oriented than myself, based in another country or higher up the ladder: I've found that this pre-selection criterion to be successful. YMMV.
