What is Age of Consent?


Question: What is Age of Consent?
Answer: The age of consent is the legal age in which someone can agree to a sexual relationship. Age of consent laws were put in place to protect young people from unwanted sexual contact. The age of consent is not the same in all states, and is even different in some places depending on whether you have sex with a girl or a boy.

For teen gays and lesbians, it is a good idea to understand the age of consent laws so that you do not endanger yourself or your partner.
