    Yeh, it's quite good. It stops mental stuff like this happening.
    Wow that's ridiculous!!! I see people in US TV shows panicking about getting jailed for sleeping with a 17-year-old and it looks so crazy compared to here.

    So if a man of 20 has sex with a 13 year of girl that will go un-prosecuted.

    I hope you're being sarcastic? If so, then yeah I'm glad that can't happen and that our laws work both ways. If not, go read everyone else's posts.

    Before someone says it, I know, legally, it's 16.

    But technically, it's 13 - there is no prosecution unless one of the people involved is under 13.

    Considering there's no prosecution, and no consequences, I wouldn't consider it to be a law, it's certainly not an enforced one.

    Therefore, with prosecution under age 13, I would consider 13 to be the REAL age of consent.

    NB: My mum works in Teenage pregnancy, yes, I'm certain this information is correct
    NB2: I'm not saying it SHOULD be 13, I'm just pointing this out for anyone interested.
    So what you're saying is...

    TECNICALLY... you're legal? :sexface:

    Cause I would either way.

    1. Hmm interesting I didn't know, but I think we can all agree that for now the system works. That link of a 17 year old being jailed - WAY too harsh.

    2. "jailbait" I like the sound of that :sexface: , the thrill of risks would make things more exciting.

    3. But then again, I'm too pretty to go prison. I'm willing to wait a year if you are :dontknow:

    Obviously, I think the police have better things to do than chase up a pair of frisky 15 year olds....

    That's USA, oral sex and sodomy are crime in some states... They can be pretty backward sometimes.
