So the US has comparable chastity to Iraq? wtf....

 

And yeah, I've never gotten young kids ****ing each other.  My ex GF hooked up with a 18 year old when she was 13, a 21 year old when she was 15, who she later married.  I think it's just hardwired in her though, She was 24 and I was 31 when we dated, the guy she's seeing now is 39.

The legal age for consensual sex varies across Australian state and territory jurisdictions (see Table 1). The age of consent is 16 years of age in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Victoria and Western Australia. In Tasmania and South Australia the age of consent is 17 years of age. Queensland is the only state that makes a distinction between different forms of sexual activity and the age of consent. In Queensland, the age of consent for **** sex (referred to as sodomy in legislation) is 18 years of age, while the age of consent for all other sexual behaviour (described as carnal knowledge) is 16 years of age.

My GF is 10 years younger.  It gets different though once girls are in their 20s.  Teen anything is just no. 

 

Yeah 19 as a 29 year old didn't make me feel too good about myself.  I started thinking about how she was in like the 1st grade the first time I was scoring.

 

New rule is she needs to be able to get in a bar.  If she has a fake ID... well I'll have to think about it.
