Is the age of consent sixteen?

I need to know for non-personal reasons, I just need some trivia.

Good luck with those 'non-personal' reasons.

Depends on where you are in the world. In America it is either 16 or 18 depending on your state.

Lowest age in the United States is 16 and the highest is 18.

I'm fairly certain the lowest age in the western world is 15.

It really does depend on where you are. In Washington state, for instance, the age of consent is eighteen in general, but you can go as low as sixteen PROVIDED you are not in any position of authority over the younger person. If you really want to know, do a Web search for wherever it is you are.

If in doubt, 18.

That's the accepted legal age for starring in porn.

Most 3rd world countries don't even really care what the fuck the kids do. The pressing matter at hand is getting enough food to live long enough to get some water.

It's seventeen in New York, where I live.
It's sixteen in quite a few states though.

Thats where youre completely wrong. In most places in the EU (and including the other highly developed countries that arent in it) its either 13, 14 or 15. Only ones that arent are the UK, Ireland, most of the small countries, Benelux, Finland, Malta and Norway, and theyre all at 16 apart from Ireland.

It averages out more at like 14 and a half.

I think the same rule applies as in Washington state though; Up to 18 it's only allowed when you're not in a position of power over the younger person.

At least, where I live I'm pretty sure a 40 year old going to bed with a 16 year old is going to lead to questions. Just a few weeks ago there was a case where a teacher had kissed one of his students and he got fired right away + they started an investigation to see if there wasn't more going on. So you're going to get in trouble.
