If you, or anyone you know, has been sexually abused, the experience and impact of that will be different for everyone, but whatever your reaction, it is a normal response to an extreme situation. You are not to blame. If someone is found guilty of breaking the laws around age of consent, they can be charged with a serious criminal offence, sent to jail and placed on a public sex offender registry.
The public sex offender registry is a list of adults who have been found guilty of a sex crime.

They are also required to report the names and ages of children with whom they live or have regular contact.

The industry admits this. One porn star told Maree actors were required to be rough with the girl, and take charge. For many boys, porn is their sex education. They copy what they see, and expect their girlfriends to be like the women in the film.
So what is this doing to girls? In generations gone by, women emerged from adolescence with a sense of sexual power. Now you have to offer — or flirtatiously suggest — the lesbian scene, the ejaculate-in-the-face-scene. Being is not enough; you have to be buff, be tan without tan lines, have the surgically hoisted breasts and the Brazilian bikini wax — just like porn stars.
Unwanted sex — and that includes sex under pressure, or sex while drunk, or simply sexual activity or acts they regret — can leave scars. Adolescents who have had unwanted sex are more likely to consider suicide, to have poor relationships, and to have more lifetime sexual partners.
Studies have also linked it with anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress and alcohol and other drug use. Girls who report unwanted sex also report less condom use, exposing them to sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, Herpes and Chlamydia, which have life-long consequences.

For parents who want their children to abstain from sex for as long as possible, the best strategy might be confronting for some parents; they should talk about sex frequently, and acknowledge its pleasures.
Negativity will drive their children to other sources of information, such as the internet. The less guidance teenagers have, the more likely they are to have sex early and without contraception.
