    Good question in the OP.

    I guess what it boils down to is the guilt part. Between "guilty" pleasure and "innocent" pleasure, the only difference is the guilt.

    What amount of guilt must be present, in order for it to be a "guilty" pleasure?
    Also, at what point does the amount of guilt tip the scales and turn the "pleasure" into "looking for trouble"?

    I've found little use for associating pleasure with guilt.

    There are no guilty pleasures, only consequences.

    Some of the best sex I ever had was with a married woman when I was single, I felt a little guilty because of her husband but the pleasure was too much to resist.

    Did you know her husband? Was he a friend?

    No, I don't think I could ever do that to one of my friends but you never know until the situation comes up.

    I would feel guilty if I had sex with the husband or boyfriend of one of my friends but not if I didn't know the wife or girlfriend. Marriage vows are between the couple only.
