Is it ok for a 19 year old girl sexting a 17 year old boy?

I know a girl that has sent naked pics to a 17 year old boy, what would this be considered? I know its illegal to have a 17 year old girl to send a 17 year old boy sex pics, but why would it be ok for a 19 year old girl be able to send sex pics to a 17 year old boy.

By my understanding, what the mom of the 17 year old boy found out that its not illegal, because she is not a minor.

What do you think about this?

  • I think 17 is age of consent for some states. Not sure though. Bump

  • That doesn't sound right. It's by age not gender, unless that state has a weird law, which I doubt. What state was this in?

  • I don't think it is illegal. He is above the age of consent, and she is within 4 years of his age. She is NOT under 18, which would be child porn. And depending on the state you are in it's legal to posses porn (18+ models) as young as 17. So, depending on what state you are in the ONLY law that could be broken would be possession of porn or something similar.

  • I think "sexting" anyone is just a bad idea all around, other than that it seems like a normal age range for a relationship.

  • I guess its because she sent the pics and she was not a minor so it was not consindered chid porn. If he sent naked pics to her the it would be child porn.

    Its in oregon.

  • If, in your jurisdiction, the 17yo is not legally able to give consent, it would be sexually predatory behaviour on the part of the over-18yo...

    Sending or providing porn to minors is an offense --in all of the US. So if he's a minor for the purposes of that law, the fact that she sent them personally or even that he knows her wouldn't get her off the hook.

  • NO it's not OK. It's disgusting and a crime!


    If she gets caught, she'll be labeled a sexual offender and have a permanent record.

  • Ya carpy I doubt the boy has an issue with it, but the mom is the one freaking out.
