If that's the case, it's ridiculous.

It's legal to date. However, if you're in the United States, in many states a 17 year old cannot technically consent to sexual intercourse. This includes oral and all that good stuff. Basically if you're inside of her, its probably illegal. In this case, you could be branded as a sex offender if someone decides to press charges for it. Many states however also have a clause about the age gap between the people. That means that because there's only a year between you, it would be ignored as long as she said that she was willingly doing things. Even in places without this legal clause have the basic thinking of "they're teenagers, they're gonna have sex"0

It's legal to have sex if you're both minors, but the moment one of you is 18 and the other is not, you have to abstain or it's illegal.
Yeah, those western laws are pretty weird. Here, the age of consent is 14, but you can't record the activity or it qualifies as child porn until 18. It's weird, too.0
