They are joking about what actually might have constituted sex between Cassio and Desdemona.


  An unauthorized kiss! OTHELLO

An illicit kiss!


Or to be naked with her friend in bed

An hour or more, not meaning any harm? IAGO

Maybe she was just naked in bed with him for an hour or so, but they didn’t do anything.


Naked in bed, Iago, and not mean harm!

It is hypocrisy against the devil.

They that mean virtuously, and yet do so,

The devil their virtue tempts, and they tempt heaven.
