Yes, apparently so. Well, I've always thought consent laws should have an age differential component. A 15 and 16 year old is cool, but a 15 and a 30 year old is definitely not

In Denmark, there is no age differential, but there is a clause about asymmetric power relationships, under which the age of consent goes up (from 15 to 18).

So it would be illegal in Denmark because he's her teacher, not because he's twice her age.

(In practice, there's also an informal age differential rule, in that nobody is ever going to actually prosecute a 14/16 relationship, but a 14/20 one might be and a 14/30 one definitely would be.)

It's not much different here. Rightly so, because 15 year olds don't need to be protected from sex with adults, but they need to be protected from exploitative relationships.

That seems a lot more sensible than a simple birthday-based cutoff.

15 is the age of consent to sexual relations in France, no matter what the age of the partner.

That is sort of how it works here. But the rules are so complicated that nobody really worries about it. Besides, what are you supposed to do, validate government-issued ID paperwork before going on a date?

Is it weird that I think this table looks like something out of a 1980's role-playing game?

Consexual sex rules

Make an opposed age roll: each player rolls 5d20. Then look on the encounter table to see how many Cops materialise. NC means 'no cops'. 1M means one municipal cop. 4F means four federal cops. Look in the critters appendix for cop stats.
