Sixteen years ago, when you were 14 years old (for the purpose of this hypothetical) you have sexual intercourse with someone you are attracted to who is 30 years old. The age of consent where you live at the time is 16, so you are underage and the other person knows it. The intercourse is consensual, and you do not feel any regret or remorse at the time. At the time you did not feel emotionally manipulated or taken advantage of. Sixteen years later, when you are 30, you tell a friend about the experience. Your friend tells you that it was wrong for the other person to have sex with you, knowing that you were underage. Your friend recommends that you report the matter to the police.
Would you follow your friend's advice and report the matter to the police?
