What gives, it's kinda bizarre that in some states it's as high as 18, even 16 is kinda pushing it.

Short answer: Religion

Half your age plus 7

Any younger and you just get into the creepy territory.

Not true, 15 year olds are timeless, it's also imo the ''perfect'' (+1/- 1, depends on the girl) age.

16 is a good median I think. In Australia (Victoria anyway) it's 16 except if the older person is over 18 and has a 'position of authority' over you, then it's 18. The fact that parents can report rape when their of age child consents is a bit much though I think.

Better question is why OP is trying to diddle children.

That's just as bad, HS girls are usually attracted to college boys and vice versa, so them having thangs together is a mutual benefit. And it is in Europe, but the US seems to complicate this and I wonder why.

16 in Norway, but expect some looks coming your way if you are way older than her.

Most states have exceptions for minors engaging in sex with each other, and so the age of consent is mostly about adults having sex with minors. It has little to do with religion and more about power imbalances and maturity--ie., whether a fourteen year old would be capable of saying no to a 21 year old pressuring them for sex. Most people recognize that as a general rule of thumb, it's not a good idea for early teenagers to be having sex with adults, and the law provides a stopgap in case things go wrong.

15 here in Denmark I think.

#17 Posted by SomeJerk (2967 posts) -

Two 17 year olds in a loving mutual relationship on their way to getting married sometime into their adult years after finishing studies and finding employment, a home, separated because one of them turned 18 and they had sex and somebody found out and reported it, and the older one was nabbed for statuatory rape, put behind bars, marked as sexual offender.

Happens every year, many times.

#18 Posted by loyalroyal1989 (43 posts) -

this thread is way too creepy....

however i would agree 18 is too high but not as ridiculous as drinking at 21 what retard thought of that.

I swear in some parts of Europe it's like... 12 but they actually end up having an older average age for people losing there virginity. I imagine that half the thrill of losing it before your 16 (in the UK at least) was just because it's illegal.

Yeah it's a psychological thing, along with drinking and smoking. It's the old "parents says we can't do this, let's do this in secret, teehee", it's cookiejaring.

e: and cookiejaring should totally be a word to describe that thing

I actually believe Kairi is 14 years old in KH1 and that is a drawing of her from the first game.

@golguin: That's not Kairi, Kairi looks way more cartoony. Also this thread is kind of bad.

I just checked out this profile and its amazing that the girl in the pic is wearing the same kind of purple and black tank top and necklace. Their hair is similar enough to be artistic interpretation, but she's missing Kairi's neck choker. I guess it's just some anime check that looks like Kairi from just the profile pic.

Good rule. I Always think its a little shady when a 19/18 year old can't hook up with a 17/16 year old so to fix that, we should round UP.

#33 Posted by Wraxend (539 posts) -

I thought the original post was gonna say its 21 or something but to say 16 is too old just makes this whole thread weird.

I'd say this is a good rule, but I broke it with my lady. When we started seeing each other I was 19, she was 28. Five years later, and I can say it's been fairly successful.

It did help that at the time she had recently quit her high paying job and was re-enroled at University I think, but it's hard to say this is a hard and fast rule from my personal experience.

It's 15 years old in Sweden and this thread is really weird

#36 Posted by PolygonSlayer (416 posts) -

To me it seems 16 is the most appropriate age. That's approximately the age (+/-) people start fooling around anyway. As long as teens are around the same age and had good sexual education in school then I don't see a problem with it at all and don't see why it should be seen as creepy. It's completely natural part of that age.

Older people with teens though... yeah, that can be a bit creepier, but all depends on how big that age gap is. If it's a 16 and 18 year old then it's not too bad, but a 16 and a 18+ and you start getting into real creepy territory.

well no, you would employ the rule on the oldest of the two. So you did not break it. 14+7=21. Also Hugh Hefner recently broke it hardcore. I think he is like 86 and married a 30 year old :p. I guess the rule would be laxed if the younger person is above like 20.

#38 Posted by DukesT3 (1853 posts) -

Really depends on the parents and if its considered socially "acceptable", at 15 one I had gf thats was 13 and the other was 14. At 18 another gf was 16 going on 17 that year but we started dated a year earlier. Pretty much when your in high school its just what the parents think is cool and as long as your not like 17 trying to date a 12 year old or something. Once you kind of hit 20 and older, high school girls are pretty much off limits in most peoples eyes.

#39 Posted by Ocean_H (290 posts) -

Back in the old days, the ancestors used to marry women (or girls) as young as 12-14.

#40 Posted by RazielCuts (2711 posts) -

@LooseChange: Dude if your parents are getting involved in your sex life you've done fucked up.

And yes, weird thread is weird. True title should be 'Why can't I fuck kids?'

#41 Posted by 8Bit_Archer (427 posts) -

Okay so how old are you and how old is she....Thats the important Question....and have you done anything illegal yet?

It's also kind of appropriate for the thread.

If you're asking that question then it should be higher.

@Mageman:

I suppose this should have been asked already, How old are you?

Because if your in your teens I can understand this thread, at that age 15+ is.... viable (I feel old and dirty)

And what is the question here?

Is it why is the age of consent for sex period so high?, Or Why is the age to legally start having sex so high? Because as far as sex-period goes (please don't make that joke) the age is set that high to keep adults from preying on young people (read creepy old men & little girls) And legally having sex, Well... The laws are full of many loopholes that allow kids near the same age to have sex without legal repercussions.

So basically those laws are in place not so 15-17 year olds can't have sex, But to ensure they are only having sex with each other. To the best of my memory in most places in the USA / Canada you can legally have sex at 14 provided the person you are having sex with is within two years of your age. So 14-16, 15-17 and then some places 16< others 18< I could be mistaken now, but that's how it was when I was in highschool.

Anyway I'm done with this creepy ass thread, So again I'm just gonna post this again for the benefit of anyone 20+

(FYI the chart only applies to men, Women can have sex with men far younger than themselves without being considered "creepy" they're just cougars.)

*Sorry if I'm rambling, It's very late.

The age of consent is 15 where I live and it's ok, here, I just don't see why it's so high in the US, it's a pretty evil thing.

If you were an attractive 15 year old highschool girl, would you rather get fucked by hormone ridden pizza faced highschooler assholes or a more mature and athletic college guy ?

Yeah.

#48 Posted by Aetheldod (3331 posts) -

What a silly question ... cuz for gringos they are 17 year old kids!!!!!! They cant make decision for their own accord much less engage in the horrible sin destroying evil that is sex ... it must be destroyed you heathens.,,, that is why :P

In all honesty perhaps in older times it wasnt a bad idea people getting to mate younger but nowadays because of the complexities of our current society is less palatable to do so (and a crime in many cases). Also I have this idea that the old crones dont like men looking at younger females because you know ....men would go for the younger , yeah that wasnt sexist at all right? Guys? ... err I show myself out :/
