The italicized bit is begging the question. As far as we know, Milo is no longer sexually attracted to his roommate. Or maybe they're roommates with totally different schedules and who rarely see each other. Or maybe the roommate can't afford to live on his own. Or maybe the roommate is sickly and needs care. Or maybe their house is huge, with two different wings, so their "living together" is like living next door in a duplex. Or maybe -- the point is to use the imagination to fill in the blanks with things that assume the best. If the thing in question isn't sinful in se in terms of object, or sinful in terms of the actor's stated or otherwise obvious motives, etc., my take is "honi soit qui mal y pense."

Also, in this case (if I understand things correctly), the roommate has a son for whom Milo has been a parental sort of figure for a few years now.

See the bold.

The context was the scandalizing of the other.  For specifics, I would obviously advise talking to a good priest. I do think such a thing should be kept private.
