20 year old man with 16 year old man (gay couple) watch

    Today I read a post about a 22 year old male and 16 year old female dating. This got me thinking about my friend (gay) turning 17 next year and was going out with a 20 year old man (they broke up a few months ago). Was just wondering is this bad? Would you say it's bad if it were 2 females or if it were a heterosexual couple?
    Just curious haha!

    i believe at the age of 16 people have developed their understanding enough to agree to a relationship with someone older, they might not be mentally prepared for intimacy like sex though because believe me i was so traumatised when i hear ''things'' happening this one time.

    hmm it's quite difficult to give a straightforward answer on this because for me it really depends on the couple. i think the issue i have with big age gaps is that it's very easy for the older individual in the relationship to exploit and manipulate their much younger partner and very often that is why they are with them in the first place. as a result, the younger one in the relationship can be very vulnerable. however, you can't say this is the case for all relationships- there are undoubtedly relationships in which there is a big age gap and both people in the relationship have an equal amount of power and say in the relationship, and because of this you could say that this is no different from relationships with couples who are more or less the same age- some relationships are going to be healthy and great and some aren't.

    I think thats a good age difference and there's nothing wrong with that. But sex shouldn't be an option for them!

    Lets face it, from the perspective of someone in their 20s, a 16 year old is a boy, not a man. It's not necessarily wrong, but it's dodgey, whichever gender combination we're talking about.

    No, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a 20 year old man dating a 17 year old boy(turning), because if it was a 20 year old man and a 16 year old girl turning 17 no one would say anything negative about it.

    Same rules as heterosexual relationship / sex. Any responsible parent would feel protective but in an ideal world not homophobic.
