Captain Awkward On How To Deal With Sexually Aggressive Friends

I got a kick out of this post giving advice on how to deal with unwelcome and persistent sexual advances from a friend. It emphasized communication as the primary strategy, recommending honest dialogue and even social shunning should the “friend” fail to understand why his actions are wrong (though the author admitted to having an impulse to kick the aggressive “friend” in the balls rather than explain that unwanted sexual touching is not only inappropriate, but also unfriendly).
