Map of the Day: Age of Consent

Age_of_Consent

Contrary to popular belief, the minimum age at which a person is considered to be legally competent to consent to sexual acts varies from 16 to 18 in the USA.

The laws of Europe show even greater fluctuation.  In Spain the age of consent is 13, in Malta and Turkey it's 18.
