Well, what can we say.  We watched him on CBS' Big Brother show each week ...
so when he spoke nicely of our website we had to include a link.

I have used your site numerous times for research on the topic of the age of consent. Your site has bee very helpful to me and the info obtained has been bang on with other sources i've cited. Your patrons opinions are also very valid. Keep this site going and keep up the awesome work.


October, 1999 We were notified that the website had been included in Barnard College's Sociology of Youth (Sociology V3290) curriculum!  This is the first time we are aware of an educational institution openly relying on the data we have accumulated.  Thank you!

From "Nancy Sauerman"     Subject Keep it up

I have had your link on my web page for my Human Sexuality class at Kirkwood Community College for a year and we all appreciate you concern for this issue and your efforts to keep your information as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Thanks and more power to you.


"Speech on the Internet can be unfiltered, unpolished, and unconventional, even emotionally charged, sexually explicit, and vulgar- in a word, 'indecent,' in many communities. But we should expect such speech to occur in a medium in which citizens from all walks of life have a voice. We should also protect the autonomy that such a medium confers to ordinary people as well as media magnates"

Subject an important job well done

I have just discovered your web site and in minutes was able to determine certain legal facts that had evaded me for years. One is not likely to call up, (and pay), a lawyer for such information as you provide, although for hundreds, and perhaps thousands, over the years, it would have been better if they had done so.

Your web site is fulfilling, in its own way, part of the promise of the internet, to provide the general population with important information that would not generally be readily available to it and for that, I congratulate and commend you most heartily.

Hang in there and keep up the good work. It may well be a lot more important than you think.
