According to Maryland law, age of consent for concentual sex is 16 years of age. However the examples only indicate male/female sex. What is the age of consent for adult male and teen male? I have always thought that it was 18 yo but I have teens disagree with me and tell me that the age of consent is 16 for male/male sexual interactions.
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Maryland
Google age of consent in Maryland
Dear JACUSTOMER - The age of consent in MD is 16.
25 years experience in general law, including real estate, criminal, traffic, and domestic relations
Thats what it says on the webpages with no reference to male or female......therefore the age is the same?
Acknowledging that your reply is not binding, how would i get the EXACT interprotation for Maryland....OR am i trying to read too much into it?
Thanks for your help!
The age of consent applies to all sexes with respect to sexual activity. Here is the MD statute that relates to sexual crimes.
