Age of Consent Around the World

Submitted by: buddy 9 years ago

Two most common ages seem to be 16 and 14. Younger than I thought.

Im thinking sixteen, with an age limit of, under thirty, is a bit better? Common, don`t tell me a man in his twenties wouldn`t get off to someone whos sixteen just because shes sixteen? Anything under 16 is just too easy to trick into sexual acts. At sixteen, most girls know how to say NO. Just educate them more on protection instead of sheltering them from it or they wont learn untill it`s too late.

"In the Military the age of concent is 16 or whatever the local laws are, which ever is higher. One thing I think is wrong is that US laws should not work if your over seas. It is said that the age of concent for USA Citizen Outside the USA is 18, but what if the age of concent is 16 in another contry and you ahve sex with a 16 year old? Then when you get home you go to jail? If I am in Amsterdam and I smoke a fatty should I go to jail when i get back to the US...NO. That is stupid."

Doing drugs isn`t aggenst the law, having them is. I can walk into a police station tell them I smoked pot(they can then legelly search me) as long as they didn`t find anything illegel on me I can walk out the door.

yep, 14 is pretty damn young for age of consent. This is not to say they should not be allowed to do what they want with there bodies, I`m referring to the 21+ cradle robbers who are sleeping around with teeny boppers, that craps just wrong. Canada`s Conservative government is trying to raise the age of consent to 16 with partners 5 years older when under 21, there would still be no prosecution for equal partners within each others age range. I personally hope that bill passes.

That isn`t true. There are no cradle robbers, for anyone under 18 the person they have sex with can`t be over 4 years older than them.

It`s sexist and unfair that in some countries the age of consent is different for males and females.

I`m pretty sure the age of consent in PA is 18 not 16. I`ve heard a lot of rumors about older hicks going after the younger ones.

This is ridiculous, kids that young should not be having sex! I say if you are mature enough to take care of a child then you are mature enough to have sex. Of course it`d be nice if everyone could wait until marriage...but people think it`s ridiculous to be required to practice self control.

No teenagers really follow the age of consent any more, which is pretty sad.
Still, most of those are very young.

wow. this is a bit sad..
i like the older ages..
i mean, it`s pretty messed up when we have these kids running around having sex with everyone..
and i`m sorry.. if you`re an adult and you`re having sex with a teenager or child.. you`re a bit of a pervert.

that is all.

Tell me about it brother. It`s thanks to the feminist agenda that men are treated like 2nd class citizens in practically everything these days. I heard that under Canadian law, a man is guilty of rape until proven innocent! It`s chilling to think just how many truly innocent men are languishing in prison right now.

some people keep saying age of consent in Canada is 12 or 13, its actually 14, look it up for yourself. There is a bill proposed right now to raise it to 16.

"For sexual agression, in canada at least, the fact she say "yes" dont mean anything, if she simply "think" of a no in her head, its a sexual agression even if she dont tell you. Beware guys..."

Well, if we talk about laws, its say "14" for example but there is a second laws adding to it. I know for mysefl the consent in canada is officially 12, with 2 years difference. If your GF is 12 and you are 13, you are safe, if she is 12 and you are 14, still ok, as long you arent 730 days older than her.

then when you turn 14, you are ready to give your consent. BUT, remember this, the lwas for sexual agression are very very strict. So if a 14 years old come to police and said you agressed her, there almost no chance you can prouve her wrong. And thats the same if its a 28 years old.

Those laws are I think destinated to protect mostly man who date younger girls, from the parents which could disagre (i was 15 and my BF 21, he was very nice you know -_-; )

For sexual agression, in canada at least, the fact she say "yes" dont mean anything, if she simply "think" of a no in her head, its a sexual agression even if she dont tell you. Beware guys...

"trust, authority or dependency" are very broad terms and I would imagine they are grossly open to abuse.

I think 14 is the about right with no rules about age difference. People should be free to do what the f*ck they like without the government breathing down their neck.

The age of consent in Canada is 18 years where the sexual activity involves exploitative activity, such as prostitution, pornography or where there is a relationship of trust, authority or dependency. For other sexual activity, the age of consent is 14 years.

*shiver* my little sister is nine. no WAY is she any way near mature enough for that sort of desicion. to hell, neither am i!
16`s good ^^ but when you have one age for a guy, but a higher age for a girl, thats just annoying. i mean, shouldnt it be higher for a guy, because girls mature faster??? then like, a 16 yr old girl would be at the same maturity level as a 19 year old guy, and that would work.

"That is fascism in and of itself; for many reasons this is wrong. The USA is abnormal and strange in its unusually high AoC. Domestically, its bad enough, I don`t want the government punishing anyone for what they do around the world that is legal. If its illegal overseas fine but the US has a flooded legal system; it shouldnt waste time trying people for whatever that law is.

A friend of mine`s brother is facing sentencing for doing just that. He got nabbed in the US.
This is a relatively new law. I support the spirit behind the law because Older white male perverted phucks who go to other countries to buy sex with children are from primarily 2 countries, the US and Germany. Thes e scum of the earth child predators support a sexual human slavery trade. Most of the girls and boys they buy sex with are human Slaves. Forced to sleep with old White men.
I`m sure the law can be defined, perhaps californisa 3 year rule can be applied. But we have to stop this sick practice.

Age of consent laws are drated up. You have to be 17 here, and my 25 year old friend knocked up a 16 year old. She`s threatening to charge him with statutory rape if he gets near the kid. I think the law should be more like 15. I still wouldn`t go any teenagers, because high school kids tend to annoy me, but it makes more sense than 17 does to me.

Excessively high AOC laws are all part of the war against men. An excuse to demonize male sexuality. That, and the fact that older women can`t handle the competition.

I`m pretty sure they got Mexico wrong. I`ve heard the age of consent is 12 in Mexico, not 18.

I agree with tourettes on this one. US jails are full of men who`ve had sex with 15, 16 and 17 year olds. Such men are treated like outcasts and are often not able to work again. That`s the real injustice here! What right has anyone else got pass judgement on the consenting activities of others?

Don`t complain! In Portugal we start drinking by the age of 6. By 14 we are considered normal if appear at home completely wasted. So who cares about the age of consent if your country is based on Alcool and light drugs?

FallenSoul sorry I was wrong. i was just going off the top of my head.

I like the way California the three year in till 18 law works. It`s simple and understandable why it is that why. I mean the diffrence between 19 and 16 in a mental level isn`t big.

There has to be some practical, scientific way of determining this... state government arbitration does not exactly cut the mustard for me when it comes to an individual`s competence in consent. I say if they are old enough to REFUSE, then they are old enough to consent: done-deal.

Actually Darkmartyr, the age of consent in Canada is 14 rather than 13, and it would be nice to think that a lot of these have changed, but as sad as it is, most have not. I am with Skie_Lok about that bill.

Most of these are wrong. Almost every country has changed laws to be unambiguous and usually consent age is 17 or 18 (sometimes male age is lower). Just try to have sex with a 13 or 14 year old in Asia and see what happens to you.

An interesting one would be a map of homosexual consent. In the UK its 16, I dunno about elsewhere, but a lot of places are still medieval and "ban" it.

it`s wrong in a lot of places.
California has a three year rule up in till the age of 18. So an 19 your old could be with a 16 year old while a 20 your old could be charged.

An US citizen traveling including military the age of concent is 18. it maybe legel in the country you are in but as soon as you return to the USA you can be arrested.

Laws around concent are tricky at times.

Some countries have age of consent laws based on your gender and the persons gender you are with.

Take Brazil males must be 14 while females 18.

Some places have same sex age of concent laws as well.

Kosovo, Austria, Mexico and Turkey age of concent is 14, two males age of concent is 18 two females 14
In Canada the age of concent is 13, but if you make any kind of promise to the 13 year old such as marrage you can be charged.

In many places the age to marry is lower then the age of concent and marrage has been used as a defence and won many court case in the USA.
