    That would depend on your definition of “minor” and “adult”.

    A seventeen year old is still a minor according to the law. But over the age of consent in NY … that “minor” could engage in sex with an older partner of ANY age with no legal repercussions for the older person.

    If there is no sexual contact … there is no violation of the law.

    The link provides some insight. Some sexual contact is permitted as long as the “adult” is less than 5 years older than the “minor” allowing legal sexual contact between a 21 year old “adult” and a “minor” as young as 16.
