Question: Can a 16 and 18 year old date in New York?

In New York, it is illegal for an adult (someone 18 or older) to have sex with a minor (someone younger than 17), even if the sex is consensual.

Is it OK for a 18 year old to date a 16 year old?

In a Nutshell: Sex between an 18 year-old and a 15 year-old is illegal in California, meaning any touching of “private parts” of either, even with consent of both parties (and perhaps even the parents of each teenager) is illegal in California because the age of consent is 18.

Can a 17 year old date a 30 year old in New York?

No laws prohibit dating. Age of consent is 17 so sex is legal.
