The age of consent for sex in the UK is 16.

I ask you: what is the age of consent for sex in the country you live/have lived in?

Do you feel that the age is too young/old?
Do you feel that the government has the place to tell you what the age of consent is/ should be?

in canada its 18 or 19 varies from provinces , i think its more resonable by 16, because at that age you are already considered and adult
Re: The Ages Of Consent by Hotstepper(f): 7:47pm On May 31, 2006
nah, 18 is considered an adult in canada atleast ontario cuz only at 16 dat u r allowed 2 drive and nuthing else and 18 other things but no even to buy smokes and alc.

It is 18 in most parts of the US. I think it should be raised to 21, but those that have sex under that age with people within 2-3 years of them should only get a minor fine.

The age of consent for sex in Texas is 17.

Age to start driving is 16.

Age to own a permit is 16 too, or maybe 15 and half.

Drinking is 21.

Clubing, 18/21.
--------------------
on this table for age of consent world wide. It says age of consent for sex in Nigeria is 13.

Well i think that's true, since we have 13 yr old hausa girls getting married.

The answer to that question is YES. Cos then u are no longer considered a 'minor'. And the guy u have sex with, no matter how old he is (older that is -- if u do a younger guy, U WILL GO TO JAIL -- lol), won't go to jail. Afterall u are above minor.

That's not entirely accurate. Nigeria does not seem to have a stated age of consent. The age 13 is inferred based on related laws, but there are loopholes. You get a life imprisonment for unlawful sex i.e. rape, with a minor under 13, but it does not state if consensual sex at that age is unlawful.
More info here and here.
I wonder what those grown men see in pre-teens.

See me see age of consent o!  shocked

Sex at 16? Let me catch that daughter of mine!

At this stage, we should be more interested in making a future out of our lives than seeking ages of consent to have sex! Moral age of consent - 21!

Read your books! 15 yr old high school students already planning the dates of their first sex!

Old men want fresh twats, like my frined would say
Re: The Ages Of Consent by Seun(m): 12:24am On Jun 01, 2006
Age of consent for marriage is 21 and for sex is 16 in Nigeria (as far as I knew before this thread). If you are under 21 you need permission from your parents to get married, but you can open your legs freely.
