Not that it matters because am married, but wife and I are confused watching TV.

In England, both parties need to be 16 years old to legally have sex - whether male-female, male-male or female-female.

But I don't get the rules here. What's the age?

Varies state by state. 18 in some states, 14 in others.

You'd think they'd put signs up with a difference like that.

And the underage women should pay to put them up. :p

It is not the responsibility of the Gvnmt to tell you what the laws are it is your responsibility to find out...:)

The saying is "Ignorance of the law is no excuse" :mad:

That's not why I am asking, but could have been a good reason for me to do so.
