This is a link to a chart that shows the age at which you can legally have s_x, depending on the state you live in. http://teenadvice.about.com/library/weekly/qanda/blageofconsentchart.htm (remove any dashes) I thought this might be useful to all the girls who ask if the older man who got them pregnant will go to jail.

Pretty nice chart JBear. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure even if you are allowed to have s_x at 16 in a state, it is still illegal to have s_x with someone over 18. I.e. two 16 year olds could have s_x together but not a 16 adn an 18 year old.

Here's one with more info: Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Ma__sachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Alabama: 16 Illinois, Louisiana, Nebraska, New York, Texas: 17 Arizona, California, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Wisconsin: 18 Virginia: 18, 15-17 falls under 18.2-371 contributing to the delinquency of a minor if partner is over 18, 13-14 falls under 18.2-63 Colorado: 15 (17 if partner 10 years older and not spouse) Florida: 16 (If partner under 24), 18 (all other adult partners) Idaho: 16 or 17 (if partner less than 5 years older), 18 (all other adult partners) Iowa: 14 or 15 (if partner less than 5 years older), 16 (all other adult partners) Kentucky: 16 (If 17 or 18, then partner must be within 5 years of age) Missouri: 14 (if partner under 21), 17 (all other adults) New Hampshire: 16, 18 (person in position of authority, see NH RSA 632-A:4 III.) New Mexico: 16 (18 if partner at least 4 or more years older than minor) South Carolina: 14 (Under state const_tution)/16 (Under state law - appears to conflict with state const_tution). Washington: 16 (18 if partner is at least 60 months older, in a significant supervisory relationship, and uses that relationship to engage in s_x with the minor). Wyoming: 16/18 (conflicting laws appear to set two different ages of consent) Military: equal to the state the base is located in if the state law is 16yrs or greater else 16 if the state law is less that 16yrs; homos_xuality grounds for dismissal From what I understand, if there's not an age restriction for the partner's age listed by the state the partner can be any age...for example, in Texas a 17 year old and a 30 year old are legal. I don't think any of the kids on the website are looking at this post, though...

LOL I noticed that, but I think it's still good info. What Web site did you find this on?

It was on Wilkipedia. I can't blame the kids for not caring...I didn't either when I was their age (but I was on the pill). It just bugs me to see some of these girls afraid to put the father's name on the birth certificate because they think he'll go to jail.
