Statchitory Rap (Edit: Statutory Rape)





dz9c
This is a serious question I have to askk... And i realize laws may be different for each state but what are the rules with this??
I'll be perfectly honest im 16 and I have a gf thats 13. JUST WONDERING but is it legal if 13yo girl & 16yo boy had sexual intercourse? Like if her dad found out could he press charges?

Im gonna look more into it but maybe one of you know the laws better and as a community i think you could help me out better. I hope you ignore the obvious age difference between me an her, i dont care if you think its gross or whatever but i like her and thats all there is too it.

Those laws do vary from state to state. It is pretty easy to find those on the net...if you spell it right. Wink


Look for "statutory rape laws Iowa) or whatever state you live in.
bongoman
in most states its considered Statutory rape if a person above the age of sexual consent engages in sexual intercourse with someone who is below the age of sexual consent. (although again this rule may be different in some states).
Relnar
Uh, technically neither of you can consent to sex... but I'm not sure if that means that it is rape...

Okay, I clearly don't know the specifics of this situation, but as a female, are you SURE you're not rushing her? She's 13, that's young to be having full on sexual intercourse, it could cause potential emotional problems depending on the person. It's not so much the age difference that I'm concerned about, but are you guys doing this because you actually love each other (or at least really really really really like) or is it some form of rebellion or something? Like I said, I don't know the specifics so I can't really say too much, so if you think you are going to have sex for the right reasons, well, okay. But for the sake of hearing too many horror stories, make sure they're the right reasons, you know?

If it's hypothetical, then props to you for looking into things carefully and not rushing into things. Smile

Right, back on topic. This page is very helpful in explaining statuatory rape.

However, I checked on the age of consensual sex for you in Rhode Island, which is 16. That means lawfully, she cannot consent to having sex with you.

I know this is a very hard situation for you, I lost my virginity when I was 13, but with a girl that also was 13 tho.. however, few years later, when I went to 9:th grade and I met a girl in 7:th, and we had sex.. after like 6 months together, so no rush there, however I couldnt help wondering (not feeling bad) and worrie about it after, did I rush her? 6 months together and she said she wanted to bu still..

I have to stick with the others.. if you realy love or like eachother very much, I guess it's ok.. in sweden it's legal when you turn 15... but since it's abit of a different from 13 to 16, be very careful and I dont know her dad, but it might be better if you don't do it when her parents is not at home atleast.

as much as I do not agree with it, the legal age of consent has been lowered to the age of 13
ThornsOfSorrow
Are you sure about that? Lowering the age of consent to 13 doesn't make sense to me, because an adult who has sex with someone who is prepubescent (13 or younger) is considered a pedophile. Of course, dz9c, you are not a pedophile, since you are not a legal adult. However, since you're at the age of consent and your girlfriend isn't, that makes it illegal, as she cannot consent to having sex with you.
glenn83e
yea trust me unfortunaly the legal age has been dropped to 13. A friend of mine tried to charge someone with stat rape because his sister had sexual actions with someone. Unfortunatly it was thrown out of court due to the age of consent being 13. It was at one time 16 but was lowered a few years back.
glenn83e
just found out through some people here at work that it has actualy been lowered to 12 now. that that was only a few months ago. then again it is different in whatever country or state that you are in... In my personal opinion it should not be any lower than 16. 12-14 year olds should be out playing sports and stuff, not exploring the sexuality of others.

omg just image a 40 year old with a 12 year old and that is legal omg what is the world coming to that is sooo not right
ThornsOfSorrow
Wow, I can't believe that the age of consent is 12 in some places. Do you mind if I ask where that is? I definitely agree with you that it should be 16 or higher...

so far Canada and Austrailia... I am in Canada
sanwixh
Wow! Your county should really change that, thats really young for someone to be legally sexually active. I agree with 16 though, but somehow there should still be a good sexual education for that to be effective because having 16 year old girl pregnant can leave some heavy repercussions.

In our country (Philippines), 18 years old is the legal age. Being a catholic country they really put emphasis emphasis on moral so even if you are above the legal age you would still be under criticism if you have a liberal approach to your sex life. (So its hard for us that are young but active Sad )

I guess it all comes down to taking responsibility for your actions, don't rush when it comes to those things and always play safe, use a contraceptive and don't just stick it in when you feel like it or you'll end up ruining you chances for a better future. Be smart.

I did some digging into the Age of Consent in Canada and here's what I found:

Quote:


What is Canada’s age of consent?

The age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity involves exploitative activity, such as prostitution, pornography or where there is a relationship of trust, authority or dependency. For other sexual activity, the age of consent is 14 years.

Are there exceptions to this?

The Criminal Code provides what is often referred to as a “close in age” or “peer group” exception: a 12 or 13 year old can consent to engage in sexual activity with another person who is less than two years older and with whom there is no relationship of trust, authority or dependency.

That's not legal tho.. if legal age for having sex is 12, and adult age is 18, means that a person 18 or older can not have sex with someone that's 12-17 years old. That's ilegal and pedophile! That law has, as far as I know, not changed. That's to protect young people.

However I must say that 12 is way to low, in Sweden we have 15 as legal sex age. Ofc many have sex before this.. but that's 99% of the time, between 2 people who are teenages.

It breaks my heart that so many young people are thinking about sex this early... I would at least think they would do it after college (sorry, I'm a conservative biatch), but no, this is right out of ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

When you get to my age, and when you get married, you will regret giving yourself away too early. Sad All the emotional baggage after the first time isn't worth discovering at such an early age.

thanks for clearing that up... but to me that is still too young. it should not be any lower than 16.

Well lets get back on the topic. First of all, a 16 year old dating a 13 year old is just sad. To be having sex with a 13 year old at any age is just sick. 13 year old girls should not be having sex, it is too young.

It depends on what country/state you live in. The age of consent is different everywhere. If you live in the US, it is most likely rape. If it isn't rape where you live, it definitely should be. Don't ruin that little girl's life.

wo now hold the phone... I'm not saying that you are wrong... but your saying don't ruin the little girls life... what about guys? I know it is hard to swallow but yes guys can get raped too. But yet you say that 13 year old girls shouldn't be having sex "wich I agree that they shouldn't" but does that mean you agree to a 13 year old boy having sex? I don't agree with that
bongoman
Funny you should mention that apparently a bill is in the works to raise it to 16
