Agreed. "Casting couch" might arguably be extortion.

In Response To: A woman having sex with a Hollywood producer to advance her career is "not rape" Says Weinstein's Lawyer... (Watchman)

Thanks, Watchman. :)

: "If a woman decides that she needs to have sex with a
: Hollywood producer to advance her career and actually does
: it and finds the whole thing offensive, that's not
: rape," he told The Times.

: "You made a conscious decision that you're willing to do
: something that is personally offensive in order to advance
: your career," he added.

Hard to argue with that - except and unless we view it as a situation of extortion. Per Wikipedia:

Extortion...is a criminal offense of obtaining money, property, or services from an individual or institution, through coercion.

Extortion, which is not limited to the taking of property, involves the verbal or written instillation of fear that something will happen to the victim if they do not comply with the extortionist's will.

In this situation, submitting to sexual behavior would be the price or payment to the extortionist. Problem is, there's probably no clear-cut verbal or written description of what would happen (or not happen - that is, "You probably won't get the part") if the extortionist's will is not complied with.

It probably would hinge on whatever precedents may exist in law. Has it been ruled somewhere that in specific context statements like, "It would be too bad if something were to happen to your store," are sufficient as evidence of intent to extort?
