I think it should be said that when I was growing up, plenty of teenagers were willingly having sex with adults, and mainly it was girls having sex
with men, and most of them grew up to be well adjusted people. Only in the last couple of decades has hysteria taken over, and common sense thrown
out like the baby with the bathwater.
When the sex is consensual, where the teenager was quite willing, and the adult isn't in a position of authority, like a teacher, or boss, or family
member, then I don' think is should be a crime above the age of sixteen, and a minor crime if above the age of 13.
However, there should be special considerations towards adults who are found to target people under the age of sixteen for sexual relationships. A
second offense should be treated much more harshly, and even more harshly for a third offense.
Adults in positions of authority and those found to be sexually predatory towards teenagers should be given stiff penalties, and even stiffer
depending on the nature of the sexual relation and possible coercion.
Those who physically force themselves on children should be treated like murderers in my opinion, and sex with children under the age of 12 should
also be treated harshly. I also think physically violent rape should be treated like murder as well.
One has to wonder how much this woman forced herself on the young boy before giving up. I could understand needing therapy after being held down by
her in attempted seduction.
