The 4th of July Salute! Or: Barely Legal is Still Legal

Happy Fourth of July!

I wanted to write a blog post about the 16-year-old girl who jacked me off during a fireworks display back in Vodkaberg in summer of 2001.


Now I was thinking that was on the 4th of July. But then I was wondering, why was there a fireworks display on the 4th of July in Russia in 2001?  Were they having a celebration of the American 4th of July, or was it just some kind of coincidence? Or did I misremember the date?

It was summer, anyway.

There were tons of outdoor festivals with fireworks and huge unruly crowds and tons of alcohol in those days.

And tons of 16-year-old girls, I should say.

I would have been 32. She was half my age. That was still legal at that time in Russia. 16 was the age of consent in Russia at that time, by the way. Still is, actually. 

But it's really not much of a story. We were standing there, with my 50-year-old female colleage and some other students, and we were all looking up at the fireworks, and the 16-year-old reached back and stuck her hands down my pants and got the old flagpole out.

Salute!


Nobody noticed. At least I didn't notice anybody noticing.

So, illegal? No. Immoral, probably. She was a student, also.

She was the one referred to as Young Marilyn in the memoir VODKABERG.

She's got two kids and is married to a soccer player now.

I'm not.



Funnily enough, ten years previously, when I was in college in New Orleans, on the 4th of July 1991, when I was 22, I had my second date -- which involved some sexual contact -- with a girl I'd met a few weeks previously.

She'd initially told me she was 18, but then after we watched the fireworks display on the 4th of July, she revealed she was 16.

I don't think that was legal even in Louisiana at that time.

Funny, I remember being concerned about that, at that time.

That girl is married now, too. She's got three children.

Not me!

Hi X, I rarely comment on stuff but then I see that no one else has done it and feel sorry. Anyway, good post! Had me laughing!

16 is pretty much the legal age in most of western Europe (it varies)

It only gets dodgy when it is below this age OR it is those sick fuck nonces who go out to SEA and are sticking their dicks in babies.

IIRC the US isn't a country which has US laws apply wherever you are in the world.

Notably I think Finland, Sweden and China do. For instance in Sweden paying for sex as the man is illegal. Selling it is not (the law is actually a cluster fuck). This means that if a Swedish man goes to London or Amsterdam or wherever technically he can be done for buying sex as the rules of his homeland apply wherever he is.

Similar thing in a lot of Asia and a few people have been caught. They stop off in Amsterdam have a few doobies and other assorted recreational drugs.

Land in China get caught in a random crackdown (which is like shooting fish in a barrel sometimes). Get told to piss in a bottle. It tests positive even though they didn't take those drugs in China. Still grounds for deportation and a life time ban from working in China.

Actually the US is one of those countries. Can't pay for sex from under 18. Can't have sex with under 16. Definitely not crazy strict rules but I've seen Americans complaining about their "freedom" being stomped on over it. Personally I'm cool with it haha.

Nah piss tests don't happen at the airport or for a legitimate work visa. Random i.e. look for non Chinese looking people and ask them for an unconstitutional even by the Chinese constitution drug tests have been stepping up all over China.

October and November 2014 police simply went to bars with lots of foreigners (read white people) locked the doors and demanded a piss test from everybody. Test positive get taken to the station for a hair and blood test.

It's one of those low hanging fruit type police crackdowns that occur now and again.

I've noticed an explosion of asian peoples' recognition, with official media denigration, of white men dating asian women. Twelve years ago this wasn't a problem. Is it the internet, recognition of our failing anglo economies, or increaesed use of translating shows and blog posts through online translators?
Oddly enough, non-white people don't seem to be affected...

I'm somehow glad I first read this comment while taking a break at the Cave Monastery. Seemed somehow appropriate. Hope you're making the best of it with the time you got left there. Had a bit of a crazy last day and was unable to formulate a proper response til now, back in the states and now recovering from jet lag.

To answer anonymous above: It depends on the country. Japan it's no real big deal and there's even a small cottage industry of books and articles about dating with a Cool Foreign Guy. Vietnam and Thailand seem okay with it so long as you're not an aging sexpat with some young thing. Korea and China give out much more xenophobic vibes these days.

All in all, though, a lot of that media coverage is very much "self-inflicted" by scads of forums and books dedicated to picking up foreign chicks written in the international lingua franca. They are countries that definitely have a much more laid-back attitude towards sex, but they're also not wild about guys coming in, treating the women like livestock and the men as non-entities.

You're also kidding yourself that "non-white people" don't seem to be affected - Vietnam and Japan have quite a bit of anxiety towards Koreans, having a reputation of abusive brutes and criminals, respectively. I also recall a story of a Japanese friend being practically disowned by her father because she married a Chinese man. Let's not even get started on the outright nastiness that happens with people that happen to have darker skin.
