We now have added "Informational Posts" which are tidbits of information that may come in handy at some point.

Worldwide ages of consent

May 2009:
This table lists different countries around the world, and shows the ages at which people of different sexualities can legally have sex.

If you're an adult, and you're reading this page for personal information, then you might need a more detailed explanation of these laws as they relate to adults - you can find this on our age of consent FAQ page.

If you're a young person, and you want to find out more, read our page on teens, sex and the law. You might also like to have a look at our "Am I ready for sex?" page.

This table should only be used as general guide - please also read the notes at the bottom of this page.
