It was explained to you that it does not rise to the level of a crime especially since he wasn't specifically talking about anyone. In a previous post the term corpus was used. Cops have the saying "No victim no crime."
Hold on. I think that needs further explanation. Criminal law (your field), not civil.

What is a sexual advance, is it physical or merely words? (in your jurisdiction if you like) Can Joe grab Jill's crotch one time and stop when she says "no," and not have committed a crime? Does it matter if they are friends or strangers?
