    i'm a 16 year old girl and i know that here in the UK, the age of consent is 16. i'm just doing this for a bit of fun and honestly attraction too, but i was just wondering, out of curiousity, if it's sexual grooming even if i'm willingly sexting this man? seeing as i'm still a minor (under 18)

    You have to be under 16 for it to be considered grooming.

    As said, you're at least 16, so it's not 'grooming' legally.

    Sexual images of you under 18 would be considered child porn.

    Does he know you're 16? What do you know about him (vs what he's told you) and what does he know about you?

    Sorry but a 45 year old sexting a 16 year old is disgusting even if it's not technically grooming. You're a child.

    It might not be grooming specifically but its still perverted and weird.

    Honestly this is disgusting like the other user said, sounds like your latching onto the first guy to give you attention, have some standards man. I don't know if it is grooming but all I can say is that there are very bad people on the internet, like why can't a 40+ man get a older woman, like one in her 20's? Sounds dodgy.

    Any 45 year old man.. (who is old enough to be your father)- knows what hes doing. You may feel you are sexting willingly but that is part of his sinister plan to groom you. This man is clearly a paedophile!! Just because your on the cusp of legalities doesnt make it ok. Your wise enough to seek advice.. so do yourself a favour (and the future children he contacts) stay away and report him !
