No that is not what i said stop putting words into my mouth.
It might just be an age thing but I know if it was my daughter at 13 who had some horny 15 year old getting in her pants I would hunt him down and the result would not be pretty, I would make sure it would be medically impossible for him to ever have sex again.
In the UK, as this is a thread based in the UK, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 16 to engage in sexual intercourse, that means even if two people aged 15 years and 11 months have sex they are both committing a crime.
The Act has faced criticism on several grounds, the most controversial of which is the criminalising of various common behaviours, such as laws which, on the face of it, outlaw consensual "sexual hugging" in public places or by underage persons, even when both participants are under age, followed by the issue of guidance notes which countermand this, saying they should almost never be prosecuted.
The Home Office says legalising consensual sexual activity between children "would damage a fundamental plank in our raft of child protection measures". A spokesman said, "We are not prepared to do this. We accept that genuinely mutually agreed, non-exploitative sexual activity between teenagers does take place and in many instances no harm comes from it. We are putting safeguards in place to ensure that these cases, which are not in the public interest, are not prosecuted - by amending guidance to the police and Crown Prosecution Service".
Criticism comes from Action on Rights for Children: "Laws should mean what they say. It's astonishing that the government could consider legislation with the prior intent of issuing guidance to countermand it. I worry about the message it sends to young people - it seems to say that sometimes the law means what it says and sometimes it doesn't.". Spokesperson Terri Dowty also fears that it could lead to unreasonable private prosecutions, such as by angry parents who don't like their child's boyfriend or girlfriend.
Professor Nicola Lacey of the London School of Economics comments: "What the Home Office would say was that they wanted to use the criminal law for symbolic impact, to say that it's not a good thing for kids to be having sex. My counter-argument is that the criminal law is too dangerous a tool to be used for symbolic purposes. With this on the statute book, it will give police and prosecutors a lot of discretion. It could be used as a way of controlling kids who perhaps the police want to control for other reasons. Kids who perhaps are a nuisance or who belong to a group who attract the attention of the police in some way.".
not "should be illegal" but it is actually illegal for two 13 year olds to have sex.
did you not take up sex-ed class or something because what you are saying on this thread is incriminating yourself as you could based on this thread if the police could id you, be charged and sent to jail.
"We are not prepared to do this," says a spokesman. "We accept that genuinely mutually agreed, non-exploitative sexual activity between teenagers does take place and in many instances no harm comes from it.

I was speaking about what I would do if I found out some honey 15 year old was messing about with my 13 year old little girl. I don’t think there is a responsible father that would not want to do the same.
Hell, if she was a few months younger the charge would be statutory rape and if you were having sex with her when you were 17 and she was 15 you could very well have ended up in jail.
You are mistaking me for the other poster. I never said I had sex with 13 year old when I was 15.
And as 'it is the law' I would instigate a prosecution against anyone who did anything illegal with them
I would hazard a guess that you are male and do not have a daughter ...
if they do the crime they will have to pay the consequences and 'do the time'
