This is exactly the main problem with having females in the fire or police departments! From what I hear, there is always constant sex going on with them and the men, and it seriously impairs their ability to perform on the job.

That's not cool,
I like to flirt, get them wet and fantasizing about me, but via compliments, inuendo, kind gestures.

that is unfortunate but this is a situation that goes on everywhere. Some get caught and some don't. Men and Women have a natural attraction to one another and though they got caught that probably had to be the most amazing sex they had because impulse sex is just so thrilling.

They should have been smart about it but they let their feelings get priority over their career and paid the price.

If our fire and police are constantly having all of this sex on the job, it seriously impairs their ability to protect the public!

The problem is it likely wasn't a constant thing. The article says it has happened "between March and mid-August of this year." It in no way states that they did it every day. I understand where you're coming from but cut them a little slack. From what you said in your first post you believe that women and man can't work together in the fire department or police. Which I disagree with you might as well also say that gay men can't work those jobs either.

Men and Women work well together of course sexual activity is always a possibility but not definite. The woman worked for the fire department since June 2008 so she has been there for quite a while and if she at all had a negative effect on their ability to do their job she would have been gone a long time ago.

I'm not trying to stick up for them but you gotta think logically about things before you go bashing them. What they did was wrong but don't make their mistake bring you to a conclusion that this will always happen if a woman is given a job like that.
