    says we can't encourage under age sex. i think there's nothing wrong with this, so long as precautions are taken...

    It is because it is illegal, and encouraging illegal activities is against the law.

    Also, the site could be taken down if they allowed people to encourage under age sex.

    Strange? Do you even notice the kind of people who come here and what they've been through? This is the worst possible site to talk about crap like that.

    14 year olds don't have the understanding of safe sex and that's why there are so many pregnant teens. They don't have the money to go get condoms so they think "this one time won't matter" and bam another teenage parent. In the US you can have sex at any age just 18 and over can't have sex with anyone under. Still at 14 you should be thinking about liking boys not about having sex with them because mentally they aren't aware of the ramifications of having sex.

    So yeah just my opinion

    I think its outright illegal here under the age of 16....? not 100% sure on that though, but an 18 year old could have sex with a 16 year old...and that would be legal...at least it use to be, they might have changed it.

    The age may vary in places, but whatever the age limit is in the area the site is hosted is the only one that really matters.

    "Strange? Do you even notice the kind of people who come here and what they've been through? This is the worst possible site to talk about crap like that."

    the primary function of this is, of course, "to save lives", but it's also a place for socialization and advice, so i think this is a valid question.

    kelly: that's why i'm saying we take precautions.

    i don't understand why the website would be completely shut down if one or more members encouraged an illegal practice? it's surely not that extreme

    No, it is not. But that is why the rules are there. It is ILLEGAL to encourage it. It would be similar to me encouraging you to go rob a store, murder someone, or rape someone. (A bit extreme, but all cases are similar in the eyes of the law)

    If the site allows illegal activities, it can be shut down. That is why there is a rule about it. If people can encourage it, and it HAPPENS, the 'site' can be brought down, if it is proven that they allowed it willingly to go on.

    Yes, it is a place for help, but if it was brought down, because of certain members encouraging illegal activities, it would not be much of a help to anyone.

    Advice and encouragement are very different and I cant really just call that kind of encouragement as mere socialising. Although, if you were only thinking in terms of advice then thats not as bad but I'd still prefer that they have their sex ed classes somewhere else. :dry:

    advice, i suppose. i'm being impartial, and i would encourage it.

    hard to believe it's "illegal", stupid government. but i can understand where they (the site, not gov) are coming from, so i'll drop it

    :laugh: Good call, but don't feel bad. I don't pretend to understand the reasonin behind a lot of laws, but knowing the laws helps.

    Sex is legal when you're 14.

    At least here...
