I think the half+7 rule is more of an attempt to define a norm than define what's acceptable. Certainly, if they're over 18 and there's no other issues (i.e. unlawful behaviour, abuse, concent etc.) involved, then what happens between two people is their own business, as far as I'm concerned. In the UK, the age of consent is 16 but from ages 15-18 there's obviously real issues about how much you can define that person as an "adult" who's capable of understanding the consequences of his/her own decisions.

Most people I know who have had affairs have done it either through frustration with their own spouse or just to feel as though they can still attract other people into having sex with them. Imagine that feeling where you still find your spouse sexually attractive, but you get the feeling your spouse only wants to have sex with you because you're together, and you get the lasting impression they're just "going through the motions". It's not hard to see why that person would want find someone else who genuinely lusts after them.

That said, I'm not convinced the above is the basis of a full-blown relationship. It obviously works for a purely sexual relationship, but not an emotional relationship and a physical relationship, perhaps even a spiritual relationship on top of that. Which is why I think so many people do have affairs, which are a leading factor in divorces, but hardly anyone actively engages or is interested in learning about polyamoury

The lowest age of consent in Canada (we have 3 brackets) is 12. We have another at 14, and at 16+ it's all fair game here. I assume Quebec is different, because they always are.

Actually, looking at the graph I posted again, the rule seems a lot more reasonable when you can see it being applied to both sides at once. That actuallyu does seem to line up pretty nicely with the social norms, especially considering the rules is more than half a century old.

Interesting..never heard that before. Got a source? (not that I don't believe you. I'd just be curious to read more about it)

Was about cuddling, several people answered it, the person who asked has still not responded to the answers. Not a lot else to linger on, unless you want to tell us about another drunken sexcapade.

Yeah christmas time so have been away. Thanks for the replies, bleak as they were, a specialist mattress seems a like a bit too much hassle so I'll hopefully be able to work something out. And a drunken sexcapade is always worth hearing about, do go on.

In 1890 it was raised from 12 to 14. It was further raised to 16 a few years ago, with a "close-in-age exception," meaning 14- and 15-year-olds can have sex with someone who is less than five years older.

And that's a national law, btw. No exceptions for Quebec on this one. ;)

Wikipedia. This is the part where people start wondering why I even know these things, and I start wondering that too :lol:

Canada

The Tackling Violent Crime Act took effect on 1 May 2008, raising the age of consent to 16 from 14.[7]
There exist two close in age exemptions, depending on the age of the younger partner. A youth of twelve or thirteen can consent to sexual activity with an individual less than two years older than they. A fourteen- or fifteen-year-old can consent to sexual activity with a partner who is less than five years older than they.[8]
Criminal law (including the definition of the age of consent) is in the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government, so the age of consent is uniform throughout Canada. Section 151 of the Criminal Code of Canada makes it a crime to touch, for a sexual purpose, any person under the age of 16 years. Section 153 then goes on to prohibit the sexual touching of a person under 18 by a person in three circumstances: if he or she is in a "position of trust or authority" towards the youth, if the youth is in a "relationship of dependency" with him or her, or if the relationship is "exploitative". The term "position of trust or authority" is not defined in the Code but the courts have ruled that parents, teachers, and medical professionals hold a position of trust or authority towards youth they care for or teach. For determining whether or not a relationship is "exploitative", s. 153 (1.2) of the Code provides that a judge can consider how old the youth is, the difference in ages between the partners, how the relationship evolved, and the degree of control or influence that the older partner has over the youth.
The "position of trust under 18" anti-exploitation rules were expanded in 2005 by Bill C-2 where a judge may choose to term a situation to be sexual exploitation based on the age of the younger party, age difference, evolution of the relationship (how it developed, e.g.: quickly and secretly over the Internet), the control or influence over the young person (degree of control or influence the other person had over the young person). This passed before the 2008 amendments, and they were not repealed so they are still in effect and can apply towards adults in these situations with young persons over the age of consent and under 18 (16-17).
Where an accused is charged with an offence under s. 151 (Sexual Interference), s. 152 (Invitation to sexual touching), s. 153(1) (Sexual exploitation), s. 160(3) (Bestiality in presence of or by child), or s. 173(2) (Indecent acts), or is charged with an offence under s. 271 (Sexual assault), s. 272 (Sexual assault with a weapon, threats to a third party, or causing bodily harm), or s. 273 (Aggravated sexual assault) in respect of a complainant under the age of fourteen years, it is not a defense that the complainant consented to the activity that forms the subject-matter of the charge.


I'm not sure why we set our 'romeo and juliet' laws so low, though we did have a relatively low age of consent to begin with (especially for the developed world I think). It seems to be a very specific case of the law accepting reality and working with it, so I'm pretty happy with it.

Well, am I late to this party.

Regarding the "older men" discussion: I dated an older guy over summer. He wasn't that much older, 6 years or so, but he made a rather big deal out of it. In any case, while he may have had the good job and the houses and all that shit, he definitely didn't have it together any more than any guy my own age I've dated. He was terribly insecure, kept worrying about the size of his penis and about me leaving him for a woman, only to eventually break it off because he didn't love me. People tend to be conflicted at any age. They also tend to hope that as they age, they'll gain wisdom and clarity in exchange for losing their youth, but I don't think it really works that way.

Still, I do tend to be attracted to older men. I love a good head of pepper and salt hair on a guy. Sadly, most men lose their hair as they grow older :razz:.

Also, I don't know who said that "older" women who are still single, are single for a reason and should be steered clear of... but I take offense :wink:. Relationships go awry, end,... and not all women can or want to jump from one relationship to another. Especially since we're now able to get the good jobs and the good houses all by ourselves too. But I suppose that some would argue that self-sufficient women should be avoided.

'twas me. I disclaimered that with a gender neutral statement, we just happen to be talking about girls at the time. Just generally speaking it's my belief that generally the older you are as a single person, the stronger the reason why you remain that way.

It was you!

I will concede that the longer you live on your own, the harder it becomes to share your space and the less likely you are to allow others into that space. There's a reason why the "living apart together" concept is a lot more popular with older generations.

What do you guys think about tattoos below the belt line on guys/girls?

I've got a lovely story as to why i ask this question, but i'm not sure if it's a bit too mature?

There's about a thousand and one things I'd put before whether or not they had a tattoo. Unless it really was a hideous tattoo.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of tattoos, but unless it's really badly done or really in my face I won't really mind. Unless it's on the face or something though the location won't much affect my opinion of it.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

I can appreciate well designed or well thought out tattoos. Especially when they're not invasive.

For the most part though, I find them trashy and disgusting. Saying that, it depends on context. If it's just a 4F's situation, I won't care. But if it's for a relationship, I'd seriously consider.

Tattoos are really attractive if done right, and they aren't stupid. However, I find tattoos in the specific area that you are talking about really trashy.

I kinda always felt the same way. Thought that a tattoo below the belt line was rather trashy. Then last night i found out just how fun, and sexy they really can be.
Now this girl i met, we somehow got on the topic of tattoos, and i asked her if she had any. She kind of gave me a shy smile and said yes. I asked her what/where, and she told me what it was but said that it was somewhere she couldn't exactly show me. I thought it might have been on her lower back, maybe stomach or something. She was wearing a shoulder-less dress so it sould have been anywhere really, i didn't think too much of it.
So later that night i discovered where the tattoo was, and basically it was a black cat, with green eyes and a longgggg tail, going downwards. The cat itself was just off the hip but the tail was going more or less in the direction of her... well her vagina. So as you're taking off her underwear it is kind of exciting at first because you're not sure where the tail is going to end. I found that really exciting for some reason, very sexy too.

The tribal/playboy bunny trampsamps are a bit different though. Dislike them.

not a fan of tattoo's around genitalia, or leading to it. just kinda screams tramp (both men or women)

Friend of mine is moving up here late January. Once he moves off the Army base into a rental place (in town), he's going to start taking me out and help me regain a social life and break my anxiety once and for all.
