Ok so I've been wanting to ask this question for awhile now. I had planned to just walk up to a cop and ask him/her but haven't gotten the opportunity. Then I thought to ask here. The age of consent for my state is 16. Does that only mean that teens are allowed to begin having sex at the age of 16 or does it mean that once you are 16 you are free to have sex with who you want? (ie over 18). So... 17 fucking 17 yo = legal 17 fucking 20 yo = legal?
