I voted "affirmed" because that's how I interpret that it is meant. But I agree, in real life, it would have ended with teeth on the floor.

This concept was handled better in The Munsters, where Herman and Lily, both wanting to get an anniversary present for each other, surreptitiously get part-time jobs as welders. They meet on the job, but are both wearing heavy masks, and don't know that they are each other. They start flirting, with no nefarious intentions, but things get out of hand. I seem to recall that the resolution acknowledged both interpretations were possible.
