The issue I have is if we welcome one with open arms within weeks the forum will be full of the lol loving little fuckers asking the most stupid questions.
A fair reservation to have in my opinion.
Despite UKP's search engine rankings and place alongside adultwork, how may 16 year olds are going to find UKP through search terms etc? I'm 25, it's been 9 years since I was 16. Which is a lifetime in youth culture. My feeling is that for most 16 year old lads Porn hub won't lead to UKP. Unless they have a real desire to seek out and use the right search terms. I found the TLC trust when I was 20 through specific search terms. such as "disability, sex, surrogates".
Secondly, (and this is almost impossible) you have to measure the gap in maturity between a 16 year old and an 18 year old lad. It's all subjective, there are 16 year olds out there that have loads more life experience than me and vice versa.
My main worry is that you don't have enough hindsight or sense of where you wanna go and what you wanna do at 16. I'm sure it's been asked before but you've got to look at motives for seeing an escort. Above all else the guy has to take his time, it took me over a year to first call a parlour, I thought carefully about my decision the wrongs, the rights, the consequences (some of them at least) and then took the plunge.
My advice, sit tight for a year, do some thinking, reading, soul searching, partying (if the opportunity arises) and then if it's what he want's to do wait till he hit's 18 and then go for it.
