Really finding it hard to sympathize with Boston here, and i'm a CISmale. I know, I know that it must be tremendously frustrating for him. For both of them. It's terrible for their relationship.

But...

No Means No, Boston.
No. Means. No
As soon as you start to try and argue about it, you've crossed a line.

I'd disagree.

Okay, clarification, because it's late and I'm tired and I don't want to sound like an ass:

No means no, but it might be "no, with an asterisk." As in, "No, but if I knew I didn't have to do anything in the morning, then maybe." Or "no, because this situation weirds me out, but if you explained it in a way that makes sense, then I'll think about it."

There's a line, I just don't think he crossed it. He crossed some other, unrelated lines (the "don't use some guy's body to bone your girlfriend, because even if he okay'd it it's still hella creepy" line comes to mind,) but I don't think he's pushing her too hard. If she had a history of being a total pushover, or just not being able to stand up for herself, I think it would be an issue--but she's strong enough, and he's aware that she's strong enough, to not cave in to the slightest pressure.
