I have never worked for a woman before so when I landed my new job I was quite nervous about how it was going to work out. It turns out I need not have worried. The head of the department was a charming, considerate woman who I now know is She could not have been more helpful or more encouraging, so I relaxed and thought everything was going to be fine.
Sex confessions from people who had sex with colleagues or their boss
These are the very real consequences of office sex
There are few relationships that force you to confront issues of power, sexuality, gender, legality and reputation as much as sleeping with your boss. It's fraught territory, but it seems that doesn't stop us from going there. Hierarchical workplace romances are more frequent than relationships between colleagues who are equals. You can read more about why here. We found two people willing to spill the beans on their experiences of sleeping with the boss and to share their advice.
Dear Boss,. My first job out of college started as a dream: a hip tech startup in Los Angeles with a majority female team and an express mission of empowering women on social media. She frequently cheats on her live-in boyfriend with other men in the office at night, often leaving evidence for us to discover in the morning. Just last week she started making out with several men in front of my co-worker while repping our company at a networking event. Maybe this is just my Catholic guilt showing, but the whole situation makes me very uncomfortable.
My dream concerns my boss at work. I have been with the company for over 3 years and just started reporting to him about 9 months ago. He and I work very well together and he is probably the best manager that I have had thus far in my career. He thinks highly of me and expects a lot from me. There has never been any reference or exchange of anything remotely close to attraction or flirting between us.
