    Default The Age of Consent - Current & Historical

    Age of Consnet .... from Wikipedia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_consent

    Ages from 10 to 13 were typically acceptable in western countries during the mid-19th century.

    England

    In England, The age of consent for heterosexual acts was set at 12 in 1275 and remained so for six centuries.

    The age of consent in England and Wales is 16.

    Mexico

    In Mexico, the age at which there are no restrictions for sexual activities is 18, while the minimum age of consent varies between 12 and 18, according to state laws. In Mexico, criminal legislation is shared between the Federal Government and regional states. The Federal law establishes the age of 12 as the minimum age at which states can legislate upon; however there may be local state laws that override the federal law.

    Canada

    The age of consent for heterosexual vaginal sex was 12 until 1890.

    Although Canada is a federation, the 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. The age of consent in Canada is either 14 or 18, depending on the circumstances.

    I really don't know this as fact, but my theory is that many of those ages of consent were set a long time ago, when people didn't live past their 50s. Thus, child bearing began much earlier.

    This may or may not be applicable but Shakespeare's characters of Romeo and Juliet were only 12 and 13-years old (14-15?) and this was not thought inappropriate.

    What's the deal? You want to fuck an underage girl or boy?

    Aren't there other countries you can go to for that?
