Thread: VA minor / adult dating

    Default VA minor / adult dating

    I am wondering about the exact laws pertaining to this subject.
    I am in the state of Virginia.
    Many people tell me that as long as the parents agree, an adult can date a minor. However, I have a few more detailed questions reguarding this. Sexual contact is not allowed until the minor turns 18 and is thus an adult, however, here's the question: what does sexual contact MEAN?
    are the following things legal / illegal?
    Hanging out (legal)
    kidding?
    fondeling?
    sexual touching with clothes on?
    seeing eachother with clothes off?
    touching with clothes off?
    intercourse (illegal)
    oral sexual contact?

    Hanging out? Okay, with parents permission

    Kissing? Depends on what kind of kiss it is--innocent little peck or one filled with desire that involves tongues/roaming hands/etc?

    Fondeling? Can't do it

    Sexual touching with clothes on? Can't do it

    Seeing eachother with clothes off? Can't do it

    Touching with clothes off? NO!

    Intercourse? Absolutely not

    Oral sexual contact? NO!

    As you can see, what you can do is DATE and not much beyond that.

    And Bill Clinton's description of what is and what is NOT sex will not help you get around the laws. Sorry, I just had to throw that in there.

    No, the age of consent in VA is 18. No sex until then.

    Don't worry about it. All they are most likely trying to say is that even though he is over age and you are under age, they know that he will not hurt you. That or they can't figured out what to do in this kind of situation. Just go with the flow and don't worry.

    In many states, but not in Virginia.

    The age of consent in Florida is 16 for sex with adults under 24.

    If the living situation is reported by anyone (even if there is no sex offense being committed) then social services can investigate and intervene if they feel the situation is inappropriate.

    By the way, Florida does have laws regarding unmarried couples cohabiting. Its a law that is rarely enforced, but it can be used to deem the situation inappropriate. And charges could potentially be filed.

    And again, as far as sexual conduct goes between a minor and an adult, parents cannot give permission to break the law.

    In fact, let's say that mom says it's okay for you crazy kids to spend the night together in the basement. You wind up pregnant. Someone other than your mom turns you in because they know you are under age. Mom could face charges that she helped facilitate the act.

    Parents can impose additional restraints upon your actions in excess of what the law allows, but they cannot "allow you" to break the law.

    Start your own thread. Include the state.
    Please Note: My "warm and fuzzy" font is not working, therefor my posts will be direct and to the point.

    Thank you in advance for your anticipated understanding.
