    I guess the question becomes what should the age for consensual sex be?

    It does present an interesting conumdrum when a someone in Maryland can have sex with a 16yo but can't record it - is there really a difference?

    I don't expect the bill to succeed but it does point out a glaring issue.

    Isn't the real issue here that the age of consent is 14?

    I still am confused at the reasoning people use when they say that 14 is WAY too young, while it used to be (a long time ago but still) fine...

    It's probably unenforceable but how can you separate two 14 year olds making a video who sell it to an adult and an adult paying a 14 y.o. to do a video? It's easy to see the difference but how do you put that into law?

    If it were just two teens making a video for themselves, it would be different but my belief that it wouldn't be made if there wasn't money involved.

    everybody in porn should be at least 18 or older.
    As for the age of consent, 14 seems a bit too young. Although how old was Marie-Antoinette?

    Marie-Antoinette was married to Louis XVI of France at age 15...

    Juliet slept with Romeo at 13 (so it wasn't real, but hey, people consider that true love)

    My great-great grandmother was 14 and 4 months when she married the guy in my avatar. He was 28.

    Everyone has done porn, even Edward Scissorhands, and he has scissors instead of hands. Painful.



    Oh wait, it wasn't Edward Scissorhands. I'm thinking of Edward Penishands. Carry on.
