Subject: Age Of Consent In Malaysia

Your website is very useful but I have some additional points on Malaysia.

Basicly there are 2 types of laws here :

1. Syariah ( Islamic ) Law.

2. Civil Law.

Syariah laws is only applied to Muslims. The legal age is might be 18 but the truth is there is no such thing as 'legal age' in sexual consent as long as they are not married. Male and female who are having sexual intercourse outside a legal marriage regardless of age will be sued by the syariah court and if the couple is both unmarried, they are advised to get married as soon as possible. Meanwhile for same sex sexual intercourse it will be VERY ILLEGAL. As Islam strictly against homosexuality.

As for the civil laws which is applied for all in someway, the legal age might be 18 and again homosexuality is very illegal.

But somehow, we do have kinda homo movement but very discreet and only in major cities. The thing is like this you can do whatever you want to do as long as you are not caught by the authority.
