Adult and Minor Child Contact
The legal age to consent to sexual intercourse in Pennsylvania is 16. However, it is still considered unlawful to have sexual intercourse or sexual relations with a child legally defined as a minor even if he or she agrees to it. Intercourse between a child under the age of 14 and an adult who uses coercion to force the child to perform sexual acts is illegal in every state. The penalties are enhanced for children under the age of 12.
