Dating someone under age
At this age, “consent” is a legal term, not a factual term.
To be blunt, a 17 year old boyfriend who touches, for his sexual gratification , the breasts of his 16 year old girlfriend has committed a sex crime, which could put him on the Illinois sex offender registration list.
So the ‘age of consent’ is the age at which, legally, you’re deemed able to make the decision to say ‘yes’ to sex and to engage in sexual activity.
In Western Australia the age of consent is 16 years for both males and females.Every time we write about it we get a ton of comments claiming that we’re being unfair, that we don’t believe in true love and that we’re old fuddy duddies who aren’t getting any.Well, I can assure you, we’re none of those things, but we are definitely young women who are trying to look out for y’all.Secondly, you must be sure that the person consents to engage in sexual behaviour freely and voluntarily.It is illegal to sexually penetrate anyone without their consent, no matter what age they are.
