The law sees it as sexual assault - itâ€™s a criminal offence. The details are:
â€¢Even if she agrees, a boy who has sex with a girl under 16 (17 in NI) is breaking the law. â€¢If the girl is 13-15, the boy could go to prison for two years.
â€¢If sheâ€™s under 13 he could be sentenced to life imprisonment.
â€¢A girl age 16 or over who has sex with a boy under 16 can be prosecuted for indecent assault.
However, if you're a consenting couple and around the same age as each other, it's unlikely you'd be prosecuted (although if one of you is under 13 this might not be the case).
