I'm looking on Wikipedia at the different ages of sexual majority in different countries and I'm a little confused.

I looked up England, and it says that it is unlawful to have sex with someone under the age of 16. Sounds straightforward, but what if both participants are under 16? Is it still illegal? Anyone know? Can someone else, say a parent/guardian press charges if that occurs?

What about in the US?

I ask because here in Victoria, Australia, age of sexual majority is 16, but it's okay if you're younger than that (but older than 12) and the other person you're having sex with is within two years of your age. (as long as they're not your teacher/doctor whatever). So you're okay to have sex at 15 if it's with anyone between 13 and 17.

Thanks guys :)
