Interesting but 16 is still a child in the U.S. as well as in maturity.
An interesting British Documentary although not great in the way it's done. Here in the U.S. 16 is statutory rape & for good reason. I know when I was 16 I was too young and immature to sleep w/a woman twice my age. Although it's still happened in the States & we don't know much about most of the cases I'm sure, 16 in the U.K. is still too young. What's most surprising is that it doesn't seem to actually happen much at all w/an older woman & younger man but 9/10 of and older man w/a girl and not the other way around. It seems most of the girls have a Daddy complex & most of the women have some major self-esteem issues. It is actually quite pathetic to have a so-called "relationship" with basically a girl or a boy not a man or woman. This documentary is interesting but still pretty mediocre considering it's content. I know that even a woman 10 years younger than me barely has anything in common with me let alone a 16 year old girl. I don't care how mature they think they are, they still don't have half the life experience I have & their really is nothing in common w/them despite what they say. I very much doubt the two that are the basic stars will last either. It's different how they can show the faces of the minors in the U.K. where is forbidden. I also think the women w/the younger boys are fooling themselves by thinking what the boys are doing w/them is anything other than something the boy can brag about to his friends. Everyone has had a crush on a teacher or few in their lifetimes, but most teachers don't cross that line. The one lady w/both children of her own sleeping w/a 15 year old boy is just plain pathetic in all reality. She is a sad figure & I feel sorry for how she feel for a BOY. If you've seen the excellent Judi Dench & Cate Blanchett in "Notes on a Scandal," This is basically true stories of that excellent film.
