Where is the line between decency and lewdity?

Specifically for the following: girlfriend and boyfriend, for mother of a son (who is above 18), and between a brother and sister who are in their 20s.

    Every household has its acceptable dress code and some are more loose on this than others. But when a parent has allowed a child's love interest to move in then it usually means everyone will need to be more on guard with how they're dressing.

    In the mind of the Prig, aka Blue Nose.

    Others do not care, or if they do they will squeal just like a prig.

    Notice that current "comedy" is off colour, when a "comic" act is failing the "comic" will use a vulgar word or action to steal a laugh (mostly from college kids).  A desperate "comedy" act will just need to say a word, to get a laugh.

    For decades, movie & TV plays did not have a toilet in a bathroom.  Twin beds were required for married couples, the word pregnant was forbidden.

    The "line" probably caused Yahoo's sorting program to suggest 'Drawing", but you know your question is not about art.

    Incest is not legally and morally acceptable in our current  societies European based societies. Therefore you know the last two sexual scenarios are forbidden  There is no "decent" form of incest.

    The boyfriend/ girlfriend sexual scenario is no longer as sexually forbidden.  I would say "No sex until marriage", but that is my morality.  People in long term monogamous relationships (common law marriage) are not lewd   They just did not fill out the forms and engage in a religious ceremony. Lewd is "dirty talk"  and actions done to stimulate sexual reactions.

    christianity is decency and all else (other side of the line) is lewdity.
