Is it okay for a 32-year-old woman to have a relationship with a 17-year-old guy?

That depends on what "relationship" means

But seriously, that's pretty dicey. Not only is there a huge age gap, it is aggravated by his lack of maturity. If you were 60 and he 45, it wouldn't be nearly as odious. Look, if you're in it for the sex and so is he, if he's not going to get all emotionally involved with you, then maybe it's okay (assuming you're actually not breaking any laws), but if you had to ask the question, I suspect you know it's not socially acceptable. Otherwise, it's GREAT!

Hello Mrs. Robinson!

You know already that it's wrong! You are more mature and wiser and this is a young boy you are talking about that can't possibly have the maturity level to know what he's doing, but would probably be quite titilated to tell his friends he had sex with an older woman. In case you aren't aware there are Statutory Rape laws. If this leaked out and you hold a position at work you could well lose your job over this. The main thing is depending on the young man it might not be as great an experience for him as you would like to think it is. You are more titilated with the thought of molding him to what you want him to do without much of a fuss. Do the kid a favor and stay away!


It may be legal, but it's wrong. A 17 year old is a child, both legally and developmentally. An adult has no business dating a child. This is sick, and the fact that the adult is a woman does not make her any less of a pedophile.
