  • Lets focus on educating rather than prosecuting

    Teens are sexually active beings and are not as naive as what most people think. If we really want to prevent pregnancies, STD's and cherish the value of sex as a society, restrictions is not the best way to go about it... We should focus on educating teens the possible harms of sex rather than trying so hard to promote abstinence because teens are going to have sex regardless. In addition, we waste more money on jailing adults who've done no harm to the consenting teen.

  • Yes,it can benefit us

    Many people do not realize but lowering age of consent could give us numerous of benefit.One of the most significiant benefit is lowering rate of teen pregnancy.I would also say that lowering age of consent could protect prepubescent children from being molestate/abuse.While having sex with young adults is not wrong.

  • Yes sure why not

    America stays one of the top highest teen pregnancy rate in the world and the age of consent over there is 16-18.Just because an older person is x years older than the younger,that doesn't mean there would always be an abuse.Abuse can happen in any relationship also between two consenting minors.

  • Yes let's place at 12/13

    Just because some countries place the age of consent at 12/13 that doesn't mean over there would be higher rate of sexual abuse crime and teen pregnancy,you are completely misunderstood.In phillipine ,age of consent is 12,there is much less rate of child trafficking,teen pregnancy than the US.USA should lowered it.

  • Yes,it should be

    Lowering age of consent would help to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy in which nowaday is the major issue that has brought to our society.Countries which low age of consent has less teen pregnancy rate.But however i would support close in age.The age difference between two partner should be less than 10.

  • Stimulation and Sexuality are normal... Damnation of such creates imbalance ... Life and love!

    The damnation of the human body and human sexuality is in actuality what creates so much of the problems we have in our world. We focus on and encourage so much the attainment of greedy and selfish needs that we lose sight of ichthyology and our root connection with all life. That which should be prioritized, peace, love and uplifting through resource sharing, learning, educating... The overall betterment of ourselves and the world as a whole has been replaced with the self-destructive path of war, jealousy, possessiveness, hate and ultimate self-loathing.... The solution is to take a good look at ourselves as life beings, the world we have around us and the system structure we have built from time of basic instinct survival and see that we have now evolved to a higher level and must eliminate much of the nonsense industrial surroundings holding us back and forcing us into these bad corners of backlash self-harming.... Back to roots of balance... All falls into place then .. As equals... Let teenagers be the age they are and fall in love and not be made to feel guilty... We are so imbalanced right now that we have so many groupings.. Separatory .. Social class levels etc... Back to roots, back to life and love!

  • Sexual stimulation is as normal and as crucial as the ability to breath

  • Yes, with some regulations.

    The age of consent hurts many young people today. Young people get together and do their thing not thinking about it. Many of these times, they get charged for rape because the other people is just a little to much younger than them. Obviously the age of consent being lowered should not apply to older individual having relations with younger individuals.

  • Yes lowering it

    In my opinion age of consent should be coincide with puberty onset of both girl and boys should be different and therefore there is no good reason behind for denying their freedom expression.People can begin with sexual act at any age once they feel prepared and ready so it should be lowered.

  • Yes they should

    Because there are kids under the age of 18 that can make informed decisions. As long as you teach the child what sex is about and how to perform it safely then i think it's ok. Should there be an age limit? Of Freaking course there should be an age limit, And i think it should be lowered to at most 13.

  • Age of Consent between child and adult should not change

    The age of consent in some states is 16 with the restriction the other party is not more than 25; and a lot of states the full age of consent is 17 with no restriction to the age of the older adult. I think this is appropriate in most cases. However, I do disagree with same age teens being prosecuted for having sex with each other. For example, there are several cases where two teens had consensual sex and both were charged with the other being listed as a victim in their case. This is wrong. I agree teens should be waiting, but in the over-sexed society we live in where sex is used to sell almost anything it is inevitable.

  • Sex should be moved towards adult age

    Many young people are having a lot of sex today and producing babies at an alarming rate and it is leading to kids not graduating and progressing in life. Age consent in my opinion should be moved up to the age of 21 that would allow for more structure and force society to really take a look at what sex is suppose to be about.

  • Let's leave those laws alone, please.

    No, the age of consent law should not be lowered. Here in the United States, the law varies from state to state. In some states, it's the same as the age of majority, which is 18. In other states, it's as low as 14. But kids already lose their innocence early enough.

  • No it should not

    No, the age of consent should not be lowered. If someone over 18 is having sex with someone that is the age of consent it is wrong, and any less they should be prosecuted, because they are simply taking advantage of a child. It is good where it is at.

  • Keep the age of consent.

    The age of consent is 18, and should be kept there, if not raised. As a 30-year-old I think back to my 18th birthday and realize how much of an ignorant child I still was. And I was a kid who read a lot and studied a lot and tried to learn as much as possible. You need time to really gain knowledge.
