What does legal sexual consent mean?

Legal sexual consent means the legal age in your state to which you can actually have sex without being considered under age. Each state has a set age in which they consider to be legal in which you can decide at this point to have sex without going against the law. Most states legal age for sex is 16. If you have someone that is 16 and consents to have sex with someone who is 18; it used to be that the 18 year old in a lot of states could be charged with statutory rape by the parents of the 16 year old even if consent was given by the 16 year old. Most of these cases usually do not hold water due to the consent age being 16.
