    When my ex-wife took her scuba class in '83 the assistants spent a lot of time adjusting the harness straps in women's crotch areas. I would call what they did "groping." I made it very clear to them not to adjust my wife's straps or anything else.

    It's too bad because scuba diving is one sport that at least gave the illusion that women were included from the get-go. While it's true that many early ads showed attractive women in scuba gear, from my point of view it was more like "if you learn to dive you'll meet pretty women who also dive" rather than exploitation. There were, of course, some exceptions.

    For a fellow passenger on a boat it might be difficult to ascertain if the woman is willing or not. My approach would likely be to ask her if the guy is bothering her.

    That instructor should have his tank shut off over the Marianas Trench. Loaded with 100 pounds of lead and pushed off the boat. You know "sleep with the fishes". :wink:

    Sadly, more common than one would think, particularly in certain places.

    Why bother shutting the tank? It won't last long on that depth anyway.
