This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Rejected petition Make sex toys legal for sixteen year olds to buy.

At sixteen young people can legally have sex but you have to be 18 to purchase any kind of sex toy. I belive that sex toys should be available to sixteen year olds, the reason behind my beliefs stems from the very real possibility of std’s and Pregnancy.

More details

Sex toys may have there risks but they are much lower than actually having sex.
I recently went into Ann summers, there was no curtain over the sex toys and there were items littered throughout the store however me and my freind who are both sixteen were asked to leave the area.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

There aren't any legal age restrictions on buying sex toys in the UK, so we're not sure what action you'd like the UK Government or Parliament to take.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
