Are you going on a road-trip through Europe? This reminds me of that movie, think its called "Eurotrip" were a couple of friends travel through Europe and end up in the most weired places..
Now, I was just wondering, are laws (about sex) in the USA really that strict? I heared about a 17 year old boy send to prison for 10 years (believe they lowered his time now) just because he had oral sex with a 15 year old girl. I dont approve it, but c'mon this kind of things are really normal in Europe! Hearing all this I really doubt if I want to live in the USA, same goes for beer and stuff..
I also heared that it really depends where you live and such, but still..
Btw, if you are making a trip dont forget to visit Belgium
Yes. I'm going on a road trip after my studies are done in Germany so I will be visiting a lot of places during the summer. I will be finalizing my plans in September.
Here's a saying....American beer is like making love on a boat. Both are really close to water.
The US does have strict laws when it comes to sex but it does depend on where you live if the laws are really going to be enforced. It also depends on the color of your skin if you're going to get a light punishment or a heavy one. If your black or latino then you will more than likely get the heaviest punishment allowed.
Around here one has to be 18 for sex. If you're girlfriend/boyfriend is younger than 18, you could very well get charged with statutory rape because your companion is under 18. If they are 17 then you could very well get away with it because most folks think if you're 17 then you're almost legal anyway. The older one is compared to their companion, the worse off the situation can be. EX: a 25 year old man with a 16 year old girl. Well, they doesn't fly with most folks.
You have to remember that Americans have a warped view on sex and nudity. We have the pornographic capital of the world in California (forgot the town's name) but yet we are so uptight about sex and that is because of our puritan heritage. Some of the things that you guys can do in Europe would freak some folks out. EX: some members of the Italian NT posed in Dolce and Gabanna underwear. Well, you won't find too many athletes who are willing to pose in their underwear where little is left to the imagine. It's a no-no.
This was a good discussion. Let's continue.
