The legal way is to have photo releases signed by the model.

If the model is below 18, then they are considered minors, in which they cannot make legal binding contracts. In the case of models below 18, parental consent is a definite must.

As best as I know by reading the Statutes of Singapore, Singapore doesn't have a definite age to define adulthood. It appears to be quite a grey area.

In other liberal countries or societies where pornography is produced or permitted, laws must be set to define an age for adulthood. In such countries, and most of them are western countries, the age of adulthood is 18.

Obviously, this law doesn't exist in Singapore but there are some laws in Singapore which state certain ages for consent and activity which are quite contradictory if you think about it.

Anyway, bear in mind that Singapore's film/movie RA(21) rating could suggest that Singaporeans are considered adults at 21 years of age.

In Singapore, some magazines, modeling agencies, and photographers follow western countries by accepting 18 as adult age. This, I suspect is a grey area, a loophole, in the law because as best as I have read, no law in Singapore says 18 is surely adult age.

Until the day something bad happens in the photo industry with models who are 18 or too young, I doubt any definite law will be passed in parliament.

i agree with you to a large extend. in sg, kids can have sex at 16 years old but can only watch RA movies at 21. this is rather contradicting.

i am askin becos my friend is planning to try out being a model in her holidays and she wants to know of any possible danger she is exposed to and where she can get help too. i encourage her to her dream but the loophole is something she should be aware of.

Hi compro_1975,

Good on you for seeing the contradiction. In a western countries such as Australia, it's made very clear that 18 is the age of adulthood, and this is the age applied to modeling (clothed or nude).

In Singapore, you could suspect that people are conveniently and quite blindly following laws set by other countries. Maybe, they have to because the ministers haven't sat down to decide it and pass it in the bill.

If anything, I would say, like what many guys would say, do anything but just don't get caught. Still, one day, somebody will surely screw-up and get caught, and new laws will be made.


Hi richardg,

Your post is a classic example of wholesale-copy-and-paste most Singaporeans do. I refrain from doing that because it can (1) infringe copyright, or (2) suggest poor interpretational ability. Just state the link would do, and let readers interpret it themselves, or seek legal advice. No offence intended.

16 can have sex.

18 can buy cigarettes
18 can drive car

21 can watch R(21) Movies.

On at 21 have you reached the age of majority meaning that is when you are bounded by legal contracts.

So, I would say safely, 21 is the age where you are legally an adult since you can be hold true to your signed contracts.

Just curious, whats the minimum age for marriage? (i wanna get hdb flat soon! haha, just joking)
