Going from Jobless to Topless

NOTE: "Sexual misconduct" (kamesu micchacara) expresses itself in many forms. Generally, it refers to hurting oneself, someone else, or others in the gratification of desires.

Little known is the fact that simply enticing others -- for example, by appearing naked in an appealing way (think sexting, magazines, or porn) -- is also karma productive of future misery. It's like offering drugs or alcohol to other; great (albeit unseen) harm is being done to oneself.

Just doing it for the money or to survive does not nullify the impersonal consequences. Unpleasant, unwanted results are to be expected. Strangely, this also holds true for those who only encourage the conduct (such as managers, filmmakers, and advisers).
