If the adult age was lowered, would you go for women under 18?

I hear a lot of men say they prefer 18 year old women because they are young, beautiful and fertile. But it makes me wonder if they would go younger if it were legal since for example 14 year old girls can have children too. And a lot of men are attracted to teenage girls under 18, I mean how often do you see adult men hitting on and messaging young girls on the internet?

  • If they’re creeps then probably…there’s a reason it’s 18 because minors that young barley starting teenage hood aren’t old enough nor capable emotionally enough of adult decisions including sex. That’s why teen pregnancy is so skyrocketed, let alone their brains are so young and scientifically it’s been proven the human brain isn’t even fully developed until 25 years old. Now some people, there are exceptions where they mature faster but that’s not everyone as a whole. Personally I think if they can’t get someone their age or at least 5-7 years younger 18+ or close enough then there’s an issue. These men aren’t stupid, they know these girls are naive and still choose to take advantage of them.

    • I am 20 and my brain won't be fully developed for another 5 years? I guess everyone under 25 should not be allowed to vote, or drive a car, or be unsupervised then. In western countries, the age that a person becomes a responsible adult keeps getting raised every decade or so. It went from 18, to 21, to 25. Next "scientific studies" will show that the human brain will not be developed until age 30, then age 35. People that believe that should tell their grandparents and great-grandparents, (who married in their teens and had a happy life together), that they were not qualified to make that decision because their brain hadn't formed yet. 🤣

    • @Emii_Urashima They're right. But with not being fully developed they also mean that you're more capable of learning new things then a gray beard.

    • @Emii_Urashima I’m not saying it should change the voting, driving a car, or be unsupervised but I realize this as a nearly 25 year old and same with my friends who are the exact same age that we were manipulated and taken advantage of emotionally, mentally, & physically by older men and we’re far from stupid to not see that bigger picture now lol. As 18 year olds we were fresh out of high school like everyone else and men who were 30+ hitting on us was very weird and unsettling especially because of how big the gap was, it wasn’t just a 22 or 25 year old guy it was men middle aged specifically seeking young girls and targeting them due to being naive and clueless about life. Most people are still finding themselves at 18 unless they have an older soul but it’s a bit crazy if a man twice her age is going after her when he should be married by then have kids with a woman his age just saying. My friend regrets marrying at 18 and wishes she would’ve waited even tho her ex husband was just 3 years older than her at the time, he spotted her specifically because she was young and naive and believed everything and anything at that age and he manipulated his abuse on her making her believe it was love when it wasn’t and it took her YEARS to realize that so I don’t wanna hear it.

  • But teenagers are really annoying 🙄I wouldn’t want anything to do with myself at that age as an adult lol but you are right grown old men would flirt, call out or whistle at me since I was about 12 even in front of my mom it really upset my dad if I was with him when it happened though.

  • That's kind of a dumb question. Decades ago 21 was legal. If you were 21 or older and had sex with someone 20 or younger, and were caught, you were in big trouble! Now, 18 is legal and, in some states, it's 16. I've even heard of places where 13 is legal! Anyway, once 18 became legal, there were LOTS of people older than 21 having sex with 18 year olds. So, chances are, if it's lowered to 16 across the board, there's gonna be a lot of adults having sex with 16 year olds. Sure, there's gonna be a lot of them that WON'T go after 16's just for their own moral standards but, before too long, having sex with 16's will just be par for the course, just the way having sex with 18's is, now.

    • What is your ideal age for a woman?

    • I don't know that I have an ideal; age. You mean, for me to date or what my idea of officially being a woman is?

  • In my country the age of consent is 16 for sex and 18 for filming, BDSM etc.
    A 16 year old is honestly too immature for my liking.
    While I don't mind talking with them there's just too much drama with them to do anything serious...
    But yes, I've meet my share of 17 year olds that's mature enough for me to be interested.
    Definitely not all 17 year olds though...

    In countries with a limit of 18 I'd probably go for 20 year olds to avoid confusion.
    17-18 tends to be fairly easy to tell though due to the "Russ" tradition here in Norway.

    Although I'd definitely be uninterested in one that's drunk...
    They're borderline for me when they're sober...

    • Judge not the maturity by age! Trust me, when I was in elementary/middle school, many teachers wanted us to be ‘mature.’ Those’d be false hopes if all 16-year-olds are immature.

    • So what is your ideal age for your woman if there were no rules?

    • @Asker I think *ideal* is 19. But I'm interested in anything between 17 and 40. (Although most women above 38 isn't really my cup of tea there's *some* that I really like). I've yet to meet anyone above 40 that I find attractive in that way although I respect them a lot.

  • When an employer says he pays minimum wage it means he'd pay less if he could.
    The same logic applies to age of consent.

    • So it's ok for men to fuck 13-17 year olds?

    • That depends on the laws of your country.

  • No. But it never stopped me when I was a teen. LOL
    Even when I was 18-20, my girlfriend was still under age.

    • It's something else when you're a teenager yourself, not the same thing lol

    • Agreed. It's a weird fetish for older guys to go after high school girls. It's called ephebophilia.

  • No! Because she wouldn't know how life works.

    • YOU'RE A GOOD MAN👏

    • Thank you 🌹

  • A lot of men.

    I started having sex at 12/13 - I had lost count on how many I had slept with before the age of 18 and most of those were adult men in between 25 and 50ish. Legal age of consent is 15 here.

    • Oh hell no

  • NO.

    Guys who sexualize children are pedophiles, so it's really dangerous and disturbing that so many men are saying they would try having sex with a person under the age of 18, regardless of the legality.

    Even in areas where the age of consent is under the official age of an adult, I do not understand the evil intentions of men who want to have sex with children. Also, people seem to try to forget how widespread human trafficking is; those young boys and girls the grown men are jonesing to meet? A high percentage of them will be taken by organizations who deal in human commodities. These kids are sold to any number of buyers: illegal porn studios (even predominant ones have issues with their younger talent), private homes, factories, shops, farms, etc. The kids are used as sex slaves, laborers, or worse.

    Do yourselves a favor: stick to people your own age learn to protect children from harm, not exploit them or view them as sex objects.

    • I agree with you. You're a real and good man, I wish there were more men like you. It's sad but men who think like you are VERY rare. Do you think it's pedophilia if a man that's an adult has sex with someone that is fkr example 16?

  • Teenage girls can be extremely beautiful, but they are still teenage girls, they are inexperienced, they have childlike interests, and they are vulnerable. The feelings I have towards teen girls are grandfatherly and protective. The youngest woman I would ever date would be in her 30's and I would not be expecting a woman that age to be intrested in me. Realistically, the youngest woman who would be interested and copatible would be in her mid 50's.

    • My stepfather has some childish interests/intervals.

    • @HippieVeganJewslim Okay.

    • That's understandable. I'm glad you don't go after teenage girls. What is the age women are the most physically attractive?

  • Over here in UK the age is 16. I was sleeping with guys in their late 30's when I was 15 and so were my friends. Its very common.

    • @Samantha36 glad you spoke up, but if a man would make the same statement, that he was 38 and fucking a 15 year old, he would be called the lowest of the low. Glad you made that statement, that so were your friends and the it was very common.

    • @Bricealan Would you want to fuck 15 year olds?

    • No, not at this point in my life. I fucked a 16 year old when I was 19, and a 19 year old when I was in my early 30's, 31 or 32.

  • not before 18. it's a maturity thing. 18 is even too young for most.

    as well the generational gap is substantial... she'd have to be an "old soul" and mature for her age.

    I dated an 18 yr old one time, when I was 24... for what it's worth. never dated anyone younger.

    If I could go back with the knowledge I have now, at a younger age, be much different.

  • Creepy men definitely would especially the ones that get all crazy about the age of consent. If they're not a creep they wouldn't have memorized what's ages are legal in every state/country.

    • Lol, I am one of those guys. I know thr age of consent in just about every state. When I was 20, I lost my virginity to a girl that was 16, but I made sure she was legal age. She was a virgin too supposedly.

    • @SouthernWhiteMan 16 and 20 isn't to crazy. I just think it's weird for way older men 30+ to be all about teenagers. Like some point they gotta grow up and be attracted to older women

    • I hate men tbh

  • No, because I'm only interested in women who know how to dominate that ass and make me squirm.

  • No. I don't even date below 25 anymore.

    • I'm proud of you, you're a real man👏

  • I'm very unlikely to date someone 18 at my current age of 27, as I feel like it's too young.

    As for the minor/underage thing, I'd rather not even bother with that thing.

    • I'm proud of you, you're a true man.

  • I don't even find 18-21 year olds attractive. Haven't since...25 maybe? No interest in under 18 by far.

    • You're a real and good man! I wish there were more men like you in society://

    • Wow I don't hear that on here very often. ;) Thank you very much.

  • No, that's disgusting.
    In general you only want women who are within 20% of your lifetime experience.

    • So 28 for me as a 36 year old? Not a bad rule of thumb.

    • You are a good and real man, I wish society contained more men like you.

    • Taken, as more and more Good men will be every year that goes by. After all a good man is also a loyal man that would not voluntarily leave his wife and therefore become available. So every year that goes by fewer and fewer of them will still be on the market. As a result those that remain on the market will be ever more purely men who don't want to settle, or are unworthy. That said for a man to be good for a woman he himself must be settled in today's world that can take quite a quite given the very high cost of living and disadvantageous education situation. So the optimum strategy for women is to be looking for men at the top of that 20% range to give said men as much time as possible to be settled enough to support them. In terms of search time the optimum is to follow the 30% rule. That is to say establish how much of your life you can afford to to spend looking for the best match and take only 30% of that time to do nothing but look and establish what the market is. Then from those options you ACTUALLY found available to you. Pick the qualities you like best and marry the net guy who has those qualities. This algorithm is the most likely to get you the best match you can get of any algorithm and is used in modern computers.

  • In most of the US the age of consent is 16. And no, I'm not hitting on women under 25.

    • What is your ideal age for a girl? What age is a woman the most attractive physically?

    • My ideal age? Old enough to not want children. Absolute age is not something I worry about. I'm more interested in a youthful attitude and appearance. They are plenty of attractive women in their 40s.

  • It's already 16 here. But if it was lowered more here nah. If you've left school or doing 6form I see it bad if they dating someone still in school unless they are close to leaving anyway.
    So unless your telling me the new laws would mean 14 years old are going to collage I don't see when a a late teen to early 20s should be interacting with a 14 year old.

    And if 14s are going to college I would be the one stopping some dickhead who's wanting to groom them.

    • What is the age women are most beautiful, and what is your ideal age for a girl? What's the lowest you'd go for?

  • The internet is full of pedos, no I wouldn't, I'm attracted to older women anyways

  • I would not. The absolute youngest woman I would have sex with is 20 years old.

    • Good 👍

  • Nope

    • To me, under 18 is still a child. What the law says is or isn't an adult, does not change that fact.

  • At my age I would avoid anyone under the age of 24 or 25.

    • I'm proud of you😭👏
