Thread: The Age Issue Thread

  1. #1

    Smile The Age Issue Thread

    The purpose of this thread is to discuss the representation or misrepresentation of age in the sex industry. The starting point is that we accept the age of majority as being 18 in the province of Quebec. I would like to feel that there is universal agreement that underage workers should be discouraged to the full extent.

    Some feel that the age of a sex trade worker should be absolute without any poetic license while others feel that some flexibility is acceptable since it is part of the fantasy aspect.

    Not interested in compiling a list of workers or agencies that play with the numbers for whatever reason or reasons, rather I wish to focus on the broader issue of the importance of the topic.

    EE,

    Do you really expect someone to post something like... yes, underage girls are great? Of course underage girls should be avoided, and reported to authorities when proof is available.

    I agree with Daringly, if an SP wants to fudge her age by a couple of years, who does it hurt (you can always send them away)? If I wanted to experience a teen (college girl ) fantasy, and the 21 yr old SP shows up in a schoolgirl outfit and looks the part, I'm not going to complain.

    I hope that this isn't another "agencies & SPs lie about their age" witch-hunt, just better worded?

    Regards,

    Voyager

    No witch hunt intended and I will quickly discourage any such tangents.

    The underage comment was made to indicate that it was not the focus of the thread.

    I think that it is wrong if minors are working for agencies or even independent except in ONE circumstance... The minor is over 16 and is emancipated.
    In this circcumstance, the minor is declared their own legal guardian and is supposed to have all the rights of an adult except that they cannot purchase alcohol nor cigarettes.
    If the courts can deem that the youth is responsible enough or that they would be in a batter position to be on their own, then I think that the person would be responsible enough to make their own choices.... In many situations, emancipated minors turn to prostitution because landlords and employers refuse to respect the court papers and the minor is left with very little choices. Other cases may be the same as a "real" adult making the choice to escort on their own. Especially here in quebec where the only people to acknowledge emancipation are the police and the DPJ.
    In retrospect I do believe that the girl should be honest with potential clients about their age. (Mind you,I am being a hypocrite in saying that)

    Red face Emancipation

    The issue of emancipation of minors is not relevent to the thread. Legally it is rarely invoked and the posters own example argues against it - if the purchase of alcohol and cigarettes is not allowed then participation in the sex industry would be off limits.

    The only problem with the above is that Criminal Code makes no distinction between emancipated minors and other minors when it comes to sex offenses. The agency that procures clients for an emancipated minor and the clients who have sex with emancipated minors on a remunerative basis are exposing themselves to serious criminal penalties. This has nothing to do with whether or not an emancipated minor ought to be allowed to be a prostitute, but rather it is the way things are.

    Participation in the sex industry has nothing to do with purchase or alcohol or tobacco. The federal criminal code governs the former while provincial laws and regulations govern the latter. In some cases the ages coincide and in others they don't. Neither has anything to do with the other.
