no, not if it's consentual.

^well, i guess it depends on how old the person is.

I concur with miss cocoabean

A 16 year old is not always mature enough to make good decisions. Some creepy idiot could be persuasive enough to seduce the child.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 3:16:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, if it's the legal age of consent, then by law, he/she is legal.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 3:23:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Are you calling a woman a creepy idiot?
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 3:24:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
If the woman is a mature adult, yes.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 3:50:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well...how old is the other person? And people shouldn't be having sex at 16 they have their entire lives ahead of them. Don't they know what could happen and that they are not invisible?
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 4:54:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Since it's consentual and, in this country, the legal age for having sex is 16, you CAN'T be sent to jail for having consentual sex with a 16 year old.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 4:56:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
if its consentual then no
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 6:08:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, unless there is a large age difference.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/17/05 - 6:09:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Like Azure said.

In the UK the age of Consent is 16 so what's the point of this question?

If he's over 20 he should have time alone to think about his morals.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 5/2/05 - 6:53:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, that's just nasty!

But why is Britney Spears pictured? She's 23...

In England 16 is the legal age, so no jail time here.

I suppose it's a matter of what's meant by "consentual." A much older man could probably use a certain amount of pressure but it would technically still be consentual and that's wrong.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 5/2/05 - 8:02:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
However, if all parties are agreed and enjoying, I'm okay with it.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/6/05 - 6:04:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Indeed, emotional blackmailing s also "consentual".
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/6/05 - 6:19:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes they should if it's against the law.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/6/05 - 6:21:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's Britney Spears?

It's consentual...I'd think not. Unless the girl admits to being blackmailed.

Unless the 16 year old is in some way has some mental retardation than no.When I was 16 I knew what was right and wrong.Most 16 year olds are mature enough to decide about sex on their own.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/12/05 - 1:29:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Most 16 year olds know exactly what they are doing! If the sex is consensual (meaning no one has a mental disorder that effects their abiltiy to make rational decisions), and neither party is under the influence then it should be ok.

***how's that for a run-on sentence!!!

17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/12/05 - 1:36:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
depends on how old the other person was
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 5/30/05 - 4:56:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why should that matter?
