Hi Steve. I am reading about an artwork by Gregor Schneider titled Die Familie Schneider. As a part of this artwork a man is masturbating in the bathtub. I encountered the phrase "being seen in a compromising position" in a book describing this part of this artwork.

Compromising, in this context means to be caught is a situation that leaves one open to discredit, suspision and yes, shame.
