The Legal Age of Consent The law says that everyone must be aged 16 before they can have sex.
The age of consent is the same for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or who you’re having sex with.
If the parents do not want their child to associate with the adult, the parents are free to file a restraining order against the adult. At the age of 16, a minor may consent to sex with a person, even an adult.
Rape and sexual assault can occur within relationships.
If you didn’t freely agree, then it’s illegal, whoever does it to you.

The answer to the question is contained in the trite but partly true expression that “15 will get you 20”.
