    I found this interesting Age of consent

    I love learning about international facts and figures comparisons.

    In this case i was not at all surprised that gay sex is illegal in the middle east (except for Israel and Jordan) and for most of north and east africa.

    I wonder if there could ever be a universal age amongst nations.

    My eyes practically popped their sockets when i saw Spain's.....13 regardless of orientation....it seems sooooo young, can anyone verify this is true (could not find date of information on site).

    I always thought that 18 is a good age but 16 makes sense as it marks the mid-teens, any thoughts?

    So, that 25 year old female that took my hubbys virginity when he was just 17 in VA could have went to jail? :eek:

    I have always found this an interesting topic particularly how it varies from different countries. I grew up in California... I guess I have not been the law abiding citizen that I have always thought I was!

    i'm italian, and in italy 14yo is age of consent, but, only among minors ... an adult can not do sex with a minor between the two if there are more than three years difference ... ok 15-18, 16-19 ok 17-20 ok no 14-18

    I find the whole idea a little silly. At 15 years and 364 days u cant fuck, and the next day u can? I kinda think it vaires from person to person. I know some 21yo's that shouldn't be allowed to reproduce

    The United States is confusing enough, seeing as how all states get to decide their own laws about that. I live in Kansas City, which is on the border between Kansas and Missouri, and each state has a different age. Makes it nice and confusing. If two 16 year olds get together from opposite sides of the state line, what happens?

    Depends where they do it, I guess.

    And yes, Mitch - the various pages I've looked at confirms the Spanish AoC is 13 - but if an adult coerces or forces a 13, 14 or 15 yo into sexual acts there are ways of prosecuting him or her (the adult, I mean).

    I always thought Ireland's AoC was 16 - but it appears to be 17. There is no comment of it have changed recently. I guess I had it wrong.
