Watch porn, see little reason not to / maybe 16 year olds aren't mature enough not to set wrong standards / they'd get the wrong standards and/or impressions of sex.

Do porn, potential manipulation into it probs / 16 year olds aren't mature/responsible enough to get involved.

Yet they can join the army and die for their country.

The question is, if the law says they are smart enough to decide whether they want to have sex, why aren't they smart enough to decide whether they want to have sex while a camera is on?

They could also be manipulated into sex and may not be mature and responsible enough to get involved in sex, so why is it legal while having sex in front of a camera or watching someone have sex in front of a camera isn't?

Obviously not me, I have been watching it and using it to my advantage since I was about 11.

In case that was directed at me, instead of to what I said, I'm simply saying why society may have things like this.
I never said my views on the matter.

Just some speculation/guesses.

'Cos having videos of you online has a lot more irreversible, potentially greater consequences than merely having been manipulated into sex.

And probably (about watching pornography) because that's the way it has been, maybe pressure groups won't allow change / not enough advocating 16 year olds watching, I was speculating. Too many fearful of the consequences of pornography-watching, so increasing allowance is a deffo no-no.

Just crappy possible explanations and guess-work.

They're allowed to do it, but not allowed to watch it. Legally, they should be closing their eyes during sex.

It was at hypocrisy of the concept of 16 being too young, not towards you personally. I also find it funny that they can join the army at 16, but can't play CoD until they're 18

IDK if pregnancy and AIDS are lesser consequences tbh

So you have two years to learn what it's really about before you are exposed to fantasies about it. :rolleyes:

It's most likely down to prudish attitudes and no one with power wanting to change it because they'd either be publicly ostracised or lose votes. Probably both.
