the ones under 18 should be considered child
the ones under 14 should be considered child
the ones under 21 should be coınsidered child
the ones over 14 should be allowed to marry too
the ones under 14 or 15 shouldnt be allowed to have sex if they are child
they are not child if they have physical maturity
they need both emotional and physical maturity to have sex
it depends on individual differences

We are a multi-cultural board with international members and - lets face it - SOME members are rude as all hell to our international members which has pushed several away from the forum. Which is the opposite of this forum's interests. Thankfully Medusa is rugged and can handle issues that come up.
(granted - this thread isn't going too bad - some other ones have, though)

Nope, she doesn't get any "special" allowances, unless of course she is willing to admit that she DOES NOT understand English well.
For me the age of consent is a very amorphous thing that depends on more than a few factors:..... the maturity level of both individuals involved, the ages of both participants, the length of the relationship prior to the begining of sexual contact, the ability for the individuals to deal with the potential consequences of the act, etc.... In my mind it's much more about the ability for both parties to understand what they're doing, to adequately provide knowledgeable consent, undersand and deal with the potential consequences of the act, and to take responsibility for those consequenes if they come to pass.
By that reasoning I know sixteen year olds who I feel are adequately mature to be engaged in sexual relations while I know at least one guy in his mid-to-late thirties who I don't believe should be engaging in any sexual act; even if/when his wife wants to.
I think 18 is too young, I think it should be increased to 21.
