@warlockuk If this was America, yeah. As someone already said. Consent here is 16. Don't confuse us with those rebellious colonials.
The age of consent in England and Wales is 16 regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender, as specified by the Sexual Offences Act 2003. However, if person A is over the age of 18 and is in a position of trust to person B who is under the age of 18, it is illegal for A to engage in sexual activity with B.
