Age of Consent in YN

Postby Marcianus » Sat Oct 20, 2018 6:57 pm

What is the age of consent in your nation? In Marcianus, the age of consent is 25 (very high, I know), because 25 is the average age when the brain finishes development.
The Year is 3591.

Since 1970, the age of consent has been set at 15 years of age, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, however, it is also considered illegal for someone over the age of 25 to engage in sexual relations with someone under the age of 20 (the age of legal adulthood) in Gandoor.

If one of the people involved is over 18, the age of consent varies from 15-18 depending on the region. If both of the people involved are under 18, the consent age varies from 14-16 depending on the region.

17 nationwide. However, if both parties are within 2 years of age (18-16 year-old, for example), then it is legal. In addition, if both parties are 16/17 and have freely given their consent, it is legal.

In Dagnia, it is left up to the prefectures. In some, it is as low as 14, while in others it is as high as 20, which is the age one is considered a full adult and allowed to vote in national elections. Some specify that there is no crime if the older partner is close enough to the younger one, usually within 2-5 years. Some more conservative prefectures do not have a set age, instead making pre-marital sex illegal. When a Dagnian travels abroad, s/he may be in legal trouble if it is found they had sex with someone under the age of 16.

The age of consent is nominally 20 in Lanzio, which is also the age of adulthood. However this goes nearly un-enforced, as the penalties for engaging in sexual relations with a person under the age of 20 have been practically eliminated; studies show that around 70% of people have their first sexual experience before the age of 20, with a lower limit of 13 years of age typically being considered the de facto age of consent.

Before the federation act, the age of consent across all of Agarntrop was 14 but with it being illegal for anyone over the age of 18 to have sex with anyone under the age of 16. After the federation act, the age of consent remained the same but it is expected some more conservative republics once they have a government in November will increase the age of consent to 16.

Painisia, despite being a cultural conservative nation, has cities where liberal urban taste is dominating. The age of consent according to our constitution is 16 years old. But there are plans to make Painisia a federal republic, so the provinces can decide the age of consent for themselves.

To abide by international agreements and after taking note of 18 as being the gold standard or most common age of consent in use, Saiwania has set it at 18 years of age to keep the laws on such matters as simple as possible. This is enforced with no exceptions made. It is set too high or not low enough depending on who you ask, but we still feel that 18 is the age limit that makes the most sense and is ethical.

Postby Soviet Lestland » Sun Oct 21, 2018 3:26 am

In Lestland, the age of consent is 14 years. At this age begins the maturity (§ 74 Abs. 1 Z 1 LSStGB). In terms of sexuality, this means that, in principle, all forms of sexual contact that they both agree with are allowed as long as they both have reached the age of 14, unless one of the individuals involved is not mature enough for some reason, "The importance of the process to see or act on this insight" and the perpetrators exploits this lack of maturity and his age-related superiority (§ 207b para 1 StGB). In this case sexual acts are punishable with this person, as long as she has not reached the age of 16. In any case, sexual acts that do not involve sexual intercourse (intercourse and sexual intercourse) are not punishable if the age difference is not more than 4 years and the younger person is not younger than 12 ( § 207 Abs. 4 StGB). Sexual intercourse is not punishable if the younger person is at least 13 years old and the partner is not more than 3 years older (age tolerance clause in § 206 Abs. 4 StGB).

TL;DR: 14 years, but there are circumstances.

Content Warning: This post talks about sexual harassment and violence in general.

Most people here have the opinion that tying the ability to consent to an age limit is bollocks. Whether or not coercion was used has to be decided on a case-by-case basis. Kids may play doctor without any harm involved, and relationships with a large age difference do not necessarily imply the use of force or exploitation of dependencies.

That doesn't mean, however, that adults regularly prey on teenagers, nor that children frequently fall victim to sexual violence in our Anarchist Commune.

Sexual education takes place from a very early age in Sassony. Children are encouraged to talk to trusted people about harmful situations or suspicious behavior from people in positions of power.
There is an excellent support network for victims of sexualized violence, especially for women. Similar networks for trans and non-binary people as well as men have been built up in more recent years.

The general conditions of society, namely a near-absence of class divisions, hierarchies and violence, combined with great economic security and equality as well as far-reaching sexual liberation, lay the groundwork for an extremely low level of sexual violence in Sassony. Rapists convicted by our decentralized court system are submitted to voluntary therapy and counseling, or, in very rare cases, expelled from the commune.

═───╡❖╞────────═ AGE OF CONSENT IN THE FREEHOLD ═────────╡❖╞───═




The matter proposed cannot be directly addressed by the Sphere of the Interior. Laws exist to punish those that engage in sexual acts with those legally recognised as children, typically indicated by a lack of growth into puberty.

However it should be noted that developed age of consent laws do not exist as others would recognise them because of other laws surrounding sex in general, and the cultural attitudes to it. A crime of seduction, committed between citizenry, is the term given to an act where a man engages in sexual relations with a woman whom is not recognised as sexually accessible to him. The active part of this crime is always on the male, though the crime is often considered analogous to adultery and the female involved may suffer repercussions also due to voluntary participation. Women regarded as sexually accessible to a citizen include his wife, prostitutes, slaves, women declared legally disreputable, and free women of non-citizen families.

Because of this, if a citizen male were to engage in sex with a female who was the daughter of another citizen, the ages of the participants, no matter how acceptable they may seem to outsiders, is largely irrelevant unless a child is involved. The act is criminal seduction, and can result in a criminal (or civil) case to right the wrong made against the family of the female. With disreputable women, prostitutes, and freeborn women with no civic family, the general attitude is that as long as no act of rape is committed as it stands under Freehold law (with such things being dubious with the first two categories of woman), and the female is not prepubescent, then no crime is committed. A slave contrasts this with having no rights or legal protections at all.

Instead, a close estimates of age can be drawn from the average age of marriage, though this should be taken lightly as it only really sheds a light on females, as males marry later. The average marrying age for citizen men tends to be their late twenties to early thirties. By contrast, most women married to citizens did so by the age of nineteen, with a common average of around seventeen, and lowest being fourteen. The reasons for this are cultural, attempting to produce a more effective union via the increased fertility of younger women with the financial and social stability of men closer to thirty years.

Because of this, and of course, the previously covered laws, most women from civic families are virgins until their wedding night (untrue for re-marriages), and marriage marks for them the entrance into full womanhood as a wife, most marked by the consummation itself.

Whilst not as heavily mandated by law, a similar state of affairs exists amongst the Selianised provincials of the Freehold, whom often have their own cultural perceptions of such matters. The Freehold allows families of this status to settle disputes legally in their own manners (within reason), but typically if a citizen male is involved with a freeborn female, no error is committed. If the perpetrator of seduction against a woman of civic background is not a citizen himself, or a citizen of disrepute, he may be subject to harsher penalties.

In short, the Freehold has no age of consent laws because other laws and customs render them pointless.
