We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Lower the legal age for the purchase of "Sex Toys" to 16. Currently the legal age for purchase of sex toys is 18. The legal age for consent to sex is 16.Makes you wonder what he might be using currently doesn't? Of course he has a point about the inconsistency. But to be honest it's far more likely that they'd equalise up than down on consent if they could be bothered to resolve the anomoly.
When children reach the age of puberty, they start wondering what sex is like. Many will want to try sex as soon as they possibly can, whether practising safely or not. Lowering the age of sex toys would, I believe, help to reduce childrens curiosity as to what sex is like. Instead of going out and having sex with someone and possibly getting an STI or becoming pregnant, they could use a sex toy.
Currently this is not possible and I believe that the age limit of 18 only serves to further childrens desires to have sex.
After all, if they let 16 year olds buy vibrators and the likes then the next thing would be lowering the age for buying porn too*. Can you imagine the reaction in the Daily Mail?
* Yes people really do still pay for porn in the Internet Age. Weird huh?
