NewgonWiki is moving to a new domain (yet to be decided, but very soon). We will then create a public forum within 10-12 weeks. There is a slight possibility that will expire in early December and therefore not redirect to the new NewgonWiki domain. In that case, JohnHolt will post a notice on BoyChat and BoyLinks will carry the new URL.

Power of consequences

From NewgonWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The power of consequences refers to a certain type of power, often (but not always) held by the younger partner in adult-minor relationships.

Here, it is held that society itself invests said power in the child or minor by giving them the ability to effectively ruin the life of the older partner by initiating legal proceedings. Social shame is another, not unrelated consequence.

However, an older partner may be able to argue that negative consequences for the minor exist to counteract those he or she is exposed to. Such consequences might involve social shame, exposure to predatory mental health professionals and legals, and perhaps even ostracism from the family unit (in some nonwestern cultures, honor is an important consideration).
