lifeguard at the cement pond
I ran across something today that I'm not sure how to research - let me run it past you and the others here in the peanut gallery - I was looking at Bali as a tourist destination and in the information I ran across there was a lot of discussion over people using it as a sex tourism (yes it's a thing) destination and warnings of making sure that if you hired the services of a prostitute to make sure that they were old enough to be legal in Bali, which was 16.Yup. That's how laws work, Arthur. If you enter or reside in a country, you must follow that country's laws, or face the consequences.
There were additional warnings to make sure that they were old enough to meet the legal requirements of whatever country you are a citizen of as you would be liable upon returning to your home country if it was discovered that you hired an underage prostitute, even if they were legal in the country that you hired them in.
That struck me as unlikely, but may have been the result of some UN proclamation or such to try and control global pedophilia. Have you ever heard that - that you will be liable upon return home to your home country for engaging in actions that were legal in the country in which you engage them?
Would that apply to other things like traveling outside of your country to get an abortion, or engage in drug use that is illegal in your home country, but legal in a destination like Amsterdam?
