I am a 21 year old male dating a 15 year old female. After your girlfriend turns 16, she is legally able to consent to sexual contact, up until that time I would be very careful. -- As used in this section:(a) "Sexual activity" means the oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another or the anal or vaginal penetration of another by any other object; however, sexual activity does not include an act done for a bona fide medical purpose.(b) "Consent" means intelligent, knowing, and voluntary consent, and does not include submission by coercion.(c) "Coercion" means the use of exploitation, bribes, threats of force, or intimidation to gain cooperation or compliance.(d) "Victim" means a person upon whom an offense described in this section was committed or attempted or a person who has reported a violation of this section to a law enforcement officer.(2) PROHIBITED DEFENSES. However, you want to be very careful with even this type of contact.
For 16–17 year olds, another person 16 or older can have sex with you if you both agree to it, but sex with a person in a position of care or authority over a 16 or 17 year old is a serious criminal offence in which the carer/supervisor can be charged.
Age of consent laws apply to all forms of sexual activity, ranging from kissing and fondling to sexual intercourse.
All sexual activity without consent is a criminal offence, regardless of age.
If you feel unsure about someone’s age, it is always good to check.
When the law is broken, the police and courts may get involved.
