Thanks for your observations. In this particular situation the woman has virtually NO "alarm system" to alert her to some potential for danger. She has been sexually abused by a family member and drugged then raped by the minister of her church some 30 yrs ago. I am the only person she has ever told about that. She went back to the church and heard the minister speak the very next Sunday, and she acted as though nothing happened. She has very poor ability to defend herself physically or psychologically. She has a learned helplessness which even today causes her to put herself in a victim role with anyone who asserts him/herself over her.
My concern is that given this man's past history of exposing himself to women, he will do the same to her. He will be thinking that it will "help" her to see him naked. I really have no clear idea as to what her reaction would be, but my concern is the potential harm to her.
