That's pretty sick. Imagine being 30 with a gf of 13, eating dinner with her and her parents who are your age.

No wonder they make questionable pornos.

I checked. That is called a Close in age exemption or a "Romeo and Juliet law". Japan does not have that. The national age of consent is 13. However a number of prefectures have their own local laws which put this higher. But in many parts of japan, a 13 year old could engage in consensual sexual acts with an adult.

are you sure that it isn't about 13 year olds being allowed to have sex with kids up to 18?

where I'm from, we call it being "legally f***able" and means 15 yolds can have sex with kids up to 18.

a 13 year old is incapable of making fully informed decisions in a modern developed environment.
