Kind of strange thing I realized about age of consent in USA:

I live in Georgia, and this law is the same in most states. Age of consent is 16, but 16/17 year olds can only legally have sex with a partner who is 16/17. The messed up part is, say you have sex with your GF when you're 17 and she's 16. That's legal. One year later, you're 18, she's 17. It is now illegal to have sex with her. That's a bit screwed up, huh?

I think it would make sense to make the age of consent 16, but if one of the people involved in the sexual activity is under 18, the other person must be less than 2 years older.

Correct me if I'm wrong about the law.....any other strange sex laws you wanna share? Go for it.

I think in Texas, it's okay if you're within 3 years of age....



I couldn't find any qualifier like this in GA, but I'm pretty skeptical towards what I know.

Weirder when you think that that must have happened enough times for somebody to legislate against it.

I Poland you can have sex with person 15+ yo. but if you would like to watch porn movie with this person you can go to jail even for 3 years because you can legally watch porn only after 18 years of age. So if you have GF at age lets say 16, you can f*** her 24/7 and it's legal, you can even videotape your sexual adventures and it's legal but you can't show her the tape because it's illegal :-)It's all about protecting the 'minors' under 18 yo from porn what is bad to their mental health (but having sex is not for lawmakers :-)

i live in georgia too, i remember this blew my mind when i heard about it
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."

Most likely due to US lawmakers being obtuse fu[/b[ckheads who think everyone should have freedom to do anything they want EXCEPT for the things they think are wrong.

Republicans are the worst at it.

Same with Tennessee. The age of consent in Tennessee is 18, though.

So yeah that's not really a problem for me, but it is strange none the less.

I just wish I could legally tap 16 year olds. I mean, I don't unless the parents are cool with it, and even then I have to wonder if they'll ever turn on me.

You wanna know what's ****ed up? I mean really, really ****ed up? Two 12 year olds can have sex and it's okay. That's two minors being ****ed. I think we need to do something about this, and forget the 18 year old horny teens sleeping with their 16 year old girlfriends.

Aye, but I believe it starts at the age of 19. Meaning a 19 yr old can screw a 16 yr old, even then the 19 yr old had better be a woman unless s/he wants to end up in court. Sexism is rampant here.

I don't know man, many people think being sexually active at a younger age aids in development. I think we should focus more on sex education at younger ages that way children know what to expect when they get older. Or maybe stop taking away the porn for pedophiles and forcing them to find their fix elsewhere.

No, it was illegal almost everywhere. In 2003, the Supreme Court struck down all remaining sodomy laws. Lawrence v. Texas, mothafucka.

I thought that ruling only meant that as long as you shut your bedroom door, the police can't enforce it. Because it is still illegal in Michigan

Just wait till she's 16 at least. Regardless of the law, it's just a good rule for preserving her mental health.

Nope, it's not. If it's still in the books, then they can't enforce it.

But seriously, it is illegal for you to have sex.

You don't get it, man. The sex laws are all about age of consent. The age of consent is supposed (but doesn't really) protect young women (or men I guess) who aren't 18 yet from being raped by people who are 18+. So, basically, it allows the law to prosecute the pervs who can only get pleasure from raping teenage girls. Not that that matters to any teenage girls who've been raped by said pervs.

in oregon age of consent is 18. so I (18) can have sex with anyone who is older than 18. there is also a 2 year rule so I can have sex with anyone who is 16 or 17. but whats funny is if my GF was 1 year younger there would be a 3 week period where it would be illegal to sleep with her.

edit: and anyone can under 18 just has to obey the two year rule. so 17 and 15 is okay 17 and 14 not okay.

or maybe its 3 years. I dunno.

In Florida, its illegal to sexually molest a porcupine. its also illegal to molest a garbage can.

In Florida, any form of sexual contact other than missionary position is a misdomeanor. (This is still a law. There have been several cases of people being brought up on these charges in the past 5 years alone. If the police enter a home with a warrent for some other crime and catch the 'culprits' in action, they can, and are, brought up on those charges.)

OT.

I was 21 and my ex was 17, her parents didnt care as long as we didnt have sex in their house, which we did anyway.

Any two people over the legal minimum should be allowed to have consensual sex.

I believe in MI the age of consent is 16 and the other partner can't be more than 4 years older (until reaching 18 obviously).

You yanks have some crazy age of consent laws.

In England, once both of you are over 16 you're good to go.
