Our culture has made sex something other than what it is - natural.

Two teens having sex is just two teens having sex.
I might have expressed myself poorly. I agree with you. Teenagers shouldn't be made to feel bad about having sex.
But a grown man talking a kid into taking their clothes off for candy is exploitation. I was trying to contrast the two.
Yes, power inequity can lead to exploitation.

Despite this the age of consent for sex is usually lower than 18 in most nations/states.

Why is it acceptable for individuals below the age of 18 to have sex but unacceptable for them to feature in pornography? Why is it justifiable to make sexual images/video of a teenager aged 18 but not 16? If lawmakers are concerned about potential exploitation why isn't the age at which one can be in porn 21 or above?

It should be noted that in the UK the 'Sun' and other British tabloids frequently featured topless 16 year old's until 2003, this had no adverse effects on child welfare in that country.

The simple answer to, "Should you have to be 18 to feature in porn?", is no. However, if that is the age when society judges you as an adult, in general, then it's fair; but then if it's not, there is a problem with that.

I just think, similarly to Dave Chappelle, consistency is needed. When you draw the line, that has to be the line, across the board. The age of consent to sex with an adult, buying drugs (alcohol, tobacco, over-the-counter, etc.), doing porn, signing any other types of legal contracts, being responsible for crimes, going on a field trip, going to war, getting a job, etc., should be the same.

If you are old enough to decide that you want to give someone else, over a certain age, a blowjob, you are old enough to decide, whether or not, someone can take video of it, and then sell that video. If you are old enough to decide whether or not killing other people is okay, then you are old enough to decide whether or not having sex with them is okay, as well.

RE: Should you have to be 18 to feature in porn?
Is there something that actually changes in a person between the time they are 17 and the time they are 18? Can we assume that knowledge and judgement somehow magically appear in that one fraction of a second when a person changes ages?

Biologically, the brain doesn't complete its development until about age 25, so why allow a person with an underdeveloped brain to make decisions such as who to vote for, whether or not to join an army and go kill people, buy a house or, participate in a pornographic movie?

RE: Should you have to be 18 to feature in porn?
The major issue here when coming to pornography I want to reiterate is not about the adult status of it.. it's about the laws in relation to viewing pornography.

If it's legal to age of consent via a state: If a pornographic material is filmed legally in Idaho, Hawaii, or South Carolina where the age of consent is 14, or any other of the under 18 states, is it then legal for someone in California to view that pornography? By current laws it would not be legal and that's why there seems to be a good reason to not enact such a change and just create a hole bunch of bizarre scenarios for no benefit.

That's what always happens when people attempt to control other people by writing opinions on paper and enforcing them by pointing guns at other people.

Are you trying to imply that it would be better if people didn't write things down?

I think that would be better described as what happens when you have several different states, all wanting to do different shit.

No, I'd prefer that people stop pointing guns at people who do things they don't like.

Maggot,

Do you excel in asking stupid fuckin' questions? Why didn't one of your teachers slap you upside the fuckin' head when you were a kid? Are you this damned ignorant?


Piss Off. (and stay away from under-aged girls!)

I find this entire thread exceedingly difficult to fap to. Angry
