In North Carolina is it legal for a 17 year old male and an 18 year old female to have a sexual relationship without consent of the 17 year olds parents?

in North Carolina the age of majority is 18 (see website below for listings in all states)...so it wouldn't be legal with or without the parents' consent...the 18 year old would be the one who could get into trouble, for sexual activity with a minor...however when you're both 18, it would be legal.
