in engalnad an the UK its like this

The law sees it as sexual assault - it’s a criminal offence. The details are:

•Even if she agrees, a boy who has sex with a girl under 16 (17 in NI) is breaking the law. •If the girl is 13-15, the boy could go to prison for two years.
•If she’s under 13 he could be sentenced to life imprisonment.
•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).
