Just a quick question - December 3rd 2017, 09:15 PM

Hai! So as it has just been my brithday~ and I'm 16 now I had some questions about consensual sex
So I won't say what state I'm in but in my state it's 17 for the age of consent which is fine~ I don't plan on having it for awhile but like
So if I have a partner that is a year older than me and it come the time when I can have sex they'll only be 17 for a few weeks after that he'll be 18 so my question is if I'm 17 and they're 18 will I not be able to consent to them?

You can verbally consent, but by the eyes of the law, you are under the age of consent. However, you should check to see if there's close in age exemptions, because I know quite a few states have it. My state is 18, no close in age exemptions. But other states have them within a year, two, or three. Definitely check that out. If you're really worried about getting him in trouble, then I suggest waiting until you are eighteen.

I would also like to point out that he cannot actually get into trouble unless:

Someone catches you two together, knowing he is over the age of consent and you are below it.
Or you change your mind, feelings about him or something doesn't quite go your way. The law will be more likely to hear the minor than the adult.

I would suggest waiting until you are the legal age of consent because there are people who have gotten into trouble for this.

There are close in age exemptions and Romeo and Juliet laws though. So, it might be worth looking into and see how your state is run. I know, for example, that Florida has a close in age exemptions. Usually all you have to do is use a search in and type in your state and add something like "Legal age of consent" or "Close in age exemptions" etc.

Best regards.

Depending on where you or OP are, this could be considered illegal. Since this site is open to people all over the world the best thing for each individual to do would be to check their state or countries laws regarding this.

I would wait til the law says ya can
But im being hypocritical

Cause I was raped when I was 4 and 5, and I did sexual activities at 12. And im 14 now

So just go with the law. Life will be easier and smoother if ya wait
