    This has been making news since Bowie died, but I think it's probably likely that actors and pop stars are still sleeping with minor females. For sure our culture still sexualizes underage women. I was born in the 70's, so I don't know much about that era, but it seems to me that not much has changed.

    Pop culture sexualized underage girls, Hollywood actors and rock stars took advantage of them. David Bowie took Lori Maddox’s virginity when she was 15; soon afterward she was bedded by Jimmy Page. Responding to an article about Bowie’s dalliances with adolescent girls in the ’70s, Harper’s contributing editor Rebecca Solnit wrote online about her own experience as a teenager at the time:

    “The dregs of the sexual revolution were what remained, and it was really sort of a counterrevolution (guys arguing that since sex was beautiful and everyone should have lots everything goes and they could go at anyone; young women and girls with no way to say no and no one to help them stay out of harmful dudes’ way). The culture was sort of snickeringly approving of the pursuit of underage girls.

    “It was completely normalized. Like child marriage in some times and places. Which doesn’t make it OK, but means that, unlike a man engaged in the pursuit of a minor today, there was virtually no discourse about why this might be wrong.”

    I graduated high school in 1986. That year rumors abounded that a senior girl was dating a newly hired teacher. I have no idea when her birthday fell. But she was probably either seventeen or eighteen for the whole school year and the age of consent is seventeen in New York. So the guy probably didn't do anything illegal. But since he didn't have tenure, the district could get rid of him pretty easily, which they did at the end of the year. Looking back on it thirty years later, it could have been all bullshit anyway. But if I heard the rumors, I'm sure the administration did too. However there was no investigation. They waited until the end of year and dumped him.
