Asked by Wiki User. I would have no problems at age 10 of going to the cinema with my best girlfriend age 8 and call it a date. I would even at age 30 consider it an honour if a very young girl I invited to a movie called it a date afterwards. I just don't think about a date as being only for sex. A date is about making an appointment to do something together. This something is often thought of as being sexual but it does not have to be.

Age of consent law in Canada refers to cultural and legal discussions in Canada regarding the age of consent , which was raised in May as part of the Tackling Violent Crime Act. In May , the Canadian government passed a bill to raise the age of consent from 14 to 16, while creating a close-in-age exemption for sex between 14—15 year olds and partners less than 5 years older, and keeping an existing close-in-age clause for sex between 12—13 year olds and partners less than 2 years older. In , the age of consent was raised from 12 to Former Toronto police officer Paul Gillespie said the bill would give police "more tools" in the battle against Internet predators. One of the motivators for the reform of these laws in Canada was the case of Dale Eric Beckham. In March , Beckham, then 31 years old, travelled from his home in Woodlands, Texas to Ottawa , Ontario to meet with a year-old boy he had met over the internet.

The age of consent is the age that a person can legally agree to have sex. A person over the age of consent who has sex with someone under the age of consent can be charged with a crime for having sex with the younger person, regardless of whether or not the younger person agrees to have sex. The age of consent varies between states and countries. In some states, laws are different depending on the gender of the people involved.
