The phrase "Sexually Explicit Simsense" is almost redundant, isn't it?
Hasn't it been established by cannon sources that there's at least a
little sex in most every entertainment sim?

Except in current day New Jersey, where the last time I heard, the
"Age of Consent" is 13. (Across the Bridge in New York, it's 21.)
Current day, the laws for this vary wildly from state to state. (In
fact, from what I've heard, in California, there are two differerent
Ages of Consent, one for males and one for females.)

I just remembered another item that can be added to the list for
speculation: Minnimum Marrying Age. In my home state of South
Carolina, for instance, current day, the minnimum marrying age is 12,
provided parental consent is given. It's something like 14 or 15
before you can marry without parental consent. NOT that I'm suggesting
that SC be used as a basis for what's reasonable on the matter.
